So, why are all these wins important? It shows the evolution from a period when certain looks and hair types were viewed as the perfect definition of beauty.
This shows a global shift in mindset from these preconceived notions. Just 50 years ago, black women couldn’t even enter some of these competitions!
What a long way we’ve come!
I am especially impressed with Miss Universe who entered the competition and won wearing a TWA (4B/4C hair) despite pressures to wear a long flowing wig.
This is a very important message sent out to women with kinky coarse hair who believe they aren’t beautiful or need to conform to a certain standard of beauty.
You don’t have to be anything else except yourself because everybody else is taken. Be proud to be you.

And of course, we mustn’t leave out Miss Nigeria’s reaction when Miss Jamaica was announced as the winner of Miss World 2019.
She is BFF goals not to mention the embodiment of the spirit of sportsmanship (competition in this case).
She is also wearing her natural hair in a low bun by the way. Beautiful and protective styling. 🙂
