Calling all natural hair beauties!
Going-Natural.com, a social network for naturalistas, black hair products, and natural hairstyles, is calling all natural haired beauties to set the stage for 2018 for the 7th season of America’s Next Natural Model. The seven week online pageant starts on February 1st and runs until March 24.
America’s Next Natural Model was created to show off the beauty and versatility of hairstyles designed for African foils with the purpose to raise awareness of Black hair issues and inspire change. Although natural hair has been celebrated more and more in recent years, we still have a long way to go.
Candidates compete by uploading photos or a video to be determined by companies that sponsor the competition. A panel of judges will be available to coach the participating models but ultimately the nearly 100,000 members, followers and fans of going-natural.com‘s social community will decide who becomes the winner of America’s Next Natural Model 2018.
The online competition is open to men and women, age 16 and older who wear their hair, long or short, naturally in Afros, cornrows, locs and all fabulous styles characteristic to distinctive African follicles.
Aspiring models interested in joining America’s Next Natural Model can apply online at americasnextnaturalmodel.com/
