These Male Models Are Serving Natural Hair Fierceness Too

black male models natural hair

Natural hair has made quite the presentation on high fashion runways these past few seasons. Not surprisingly, the representation of models of color rocking their textured tresses has been very limited in the past. We were elated to see folks rocking everything from TWAs (teeny weeny afros) to waist length cornrows modeling the newest in fashion. And the best part about it? Many of these styles were men!

Men are grabbing a piece of the natural hair shine, and we couldn’t be happier about it—especially when some people are still clinging to problematic views about men who embrace their kinky/curly hair.

Below are only a few of the new class of male models showing us how the gentleman strut their strands. Before you start dreaming of matching silk bonnets, check these brothers out.

Anthony Leon

 

Anthony is an Atlanta-based fitness trainer, who thankfully shares his abs with the world in print campaigns and independent acting gigs. He many not have the padded resume of some others on this list, but with his perfect mix of hulk and hunk we have no doubt he will soon.

Most recognized from his print work in H&M ads, Dorian is signed to DNA NY & Ford Homme modeling agency. Born in Brooklyn, this magical mane man has rocked runways for Kenneth Cole and Nadaam – and as the love interest in Swedish recording artist Mapei’s video for “Don’t Wait”.

Michael Lockley

 

 

This fashion new comer was a staple on basically every Spring/Summer 2016 runway. Michael is a 17-year-old native Brooklynite who already has Tommy Hilfiger and Yeezy Season 2 on his resume. The golden coils and pouty lips are an insanely perfect combo.

Reece King

With a major Instagram fan base, and MTV, Adidas,and Pause Mag on his resume, Reece has done very well as a new face in the industry. He is signed to Supa Models, based in London, and is a street style icon in his own right. With aspirations of his own clothing line, we will be seeing him everywhere soon.

Yassine Rahal

 

Yassine is Morroccan, based in Paris, and tore up Parisian runways this season. He has also graced the pages of Vogue Netherlands, and is signed to modeling agencies all over the world. Chiseled features and flawless curls – yes, please.

Once you have walked Givenchy runway, posed for Chanel editorial, and done print for H&M you would think you would be exhausted – this Trinidadian model just keep on going. Only 19 years old, Jordan has quickly gained success in the modeling world. Known for his androgynous look, he blends feminine and masculine in an effortless way.

Al Fofana

The French model may be new on the scene, but Al Fofana’s dazzling looks, great smile, and tall frame, have made him a favorite in print and runway campaigns.

 


Shayna Watson is a freelance style/beauty writer who can be heard saying, “Natural hair is a lifestyle,” at least once a day. She currently lives in a shoebox apartment in Brooklyn, which is fitting since she really loves shoes.
