No ladies, it’s not what you think, it’s just an afro wig*!
Naomi Campbell is typically known for her perfectly straight locks, she is now 43 and I personally have never seen her wear anything remotely akin to an afro until now and I have to say that this look is winning!
Naomi appeared on the Graham Norton Show in the UK last week where she proudly debuted the style and from the pictures of her patting her head constantly and smiling she really seemed to like the change.
She appeared confident as always and her outfit, shoes and just enough skin to make this grown woman jealous, all played a role that was complimentary to her new afro wig.
Naomi has been in the news a lot with regards to reports of her suffering from serious traction alopecia. As a matter of fact earlier this month cameras caught a glimpse of just how bad she suffers from it due to excessive use of weaves* in a manner that has been pretty detrimental.
Alopecia is no laughing matter, studies have shown that depending on the severity of the damage, sometimes your hair never grows back and you have to resort to expensive hair transplants to ‘correct’ the problem.
I couldn’t help but wonder if the latest incident of photographers catching a glimpse of her edges is what lead to her new choice in hair. After all an afro wig* can significantly hide a lot of the baldness that straight hair cannot and she wouldn’t have to worry about cameras broadcasting unflattering images all over the media just because a little wind caught her off guard.
While there might be no cure for sever traction alopecia, the devastating effects it has on one’s self esteem is also something women who suffer from it have to deal with. It’s a double whammy for Naomi because we cannot imagine what it would be like to be in the news because of something most of us would consider personal.
Whatever the motive we loved the new look on her, she looked really stunning and genuinely happy about her afro! What do you think about Naomi’s new look?
