Short, curly, Afro-textured hair was a fashion faux pas until Angolan model Maria Borges shook things up at the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. According to W Magazine[i], Borges walked down the runway with a short, natural Afro instead of the artificially extended hair usual in these high-fashion events. At Vinci Hair Clinic, we pay special attention to trends in hair fashion, and we’re delighted that more people are seeing the beauty of short, natural hair. For many victims of hair loss, this new style may seem an unattainable dream, but our goal is to empower them to make it a reality.

Maria Borges loved showing off her natural hair on the runway. Backstage, she told reporters how excited it made her. “It was amazing. It was such a great opportunity to showcase this natural Afro.” In 2016, two models followed her trend, walking down the runway with short, attractive Afros. Maria commented, “This year, I feel happy still because I see two other girls with short hair and they are beautiful.” First-year model Dilone, one of the two 2016 models to wear short hair, thanked Maria Borges for breaking the barrier and making short, natural hair an option for other models.

At Vinci Hair Clinic, we want short, natural hair to be an option for you, too. Jourdana Phillips, another model to follow Maria’s trend, told reporters, “I have been seeing a lot of girls go short and it’s been making me feel a lot more comfortable with myself, like I don’t need long hair to be beautiful. It’s really just me and the energy that I project that makes me feel beautiful.” If you want to participate in this new trend but hair loss is holding you back, there are options available to regain your hairline and walk with the same confidence, energy, and beauty as Borges, Dilone, and Phillips.

At Vinci Hair Clinic, we’re dedicated to empowering you to expand your hairstyle options by successfully restoring your hairline. Contact our experts today to set up a consultation. If you qualify for hair transplant surgery, you could be walking around with a short, natural hairstyle before you know it!
