Maria Borges is making natural hair and beauty trend on the cat walk

In 2015 Maria caused quite a storm when she took to the Victoria Secret cat walk rocking her natural hair and beauty

Well at the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, she managed to get several Angels to follow her trend.




Dubbed the TWA (teeny weeny afro)…(not a fan of that name but anyway), Maria and Herieth Paul wore theirs with pride. They were joined by, Jourdana Phillips and Alanna Arrington who also let their natural locks flow.

The move was intentional. As lead hair stylist Sarah Potempa stated ahead of the show, “We want to embrace everyone’s natural beauty.”

“We’re giving a carefree approach to the length and type of curl,” she said. “Some women with shorter hair, maybe a lob, will walk with that hair. We’re not gonna add extensions to make it super long. And if someone has short hair on the side or a tight haircut, we’re not gonna put a wig on or put extensions on their head. We’re gonna embrace it.”

Hey, it’s your hair and you can do what you like with it but in a culture that makes young girls feel insecure showing their natural hair and beauty, this is a big move by Victoria Secret!
