Celebrating the Fro
Posted on September 26, 2012
It’s impossible not to notice a good afro, or even a bad one for that matter. I love them regardless if it’s a vintage style afro sported with a pair or bell-bottoms, or it’s a more unruly one belonging to a child.
All afros, regardless of what era they are from, seem to unequivocally demand our attention. They are like a walking art instillation, often wild and unruly. Only the brave would attempt to tame such a beast.
I’ll never forget this fantastic and clever stand-up comedian who was just starting out in his comedy career. Like all successful comedians, it’s all in the timing and the tone, so please forgive me if I mess this up… so he walks on stage, steps up to the microphone and says, “I went to the hairdresser the other day” – - pause – - “and asked for a number 46”.
