I heard a very refreshing comment today and I'm interested in your thoughts. While I was working today, a black woman with a gorgeous head of shoulder length curls. She was standing right next to me. I could not resist. I said, "I really love your hair." She gushed right back,"Aw well, thank you." I went on to give my usual explanation, "Since I have curly hair, I like to spread the love to those that have it as well." She replied, "You either love it or hate it." I added that my turning point came when I reached my mid-30s seeing other guys lose theirs. She then added, "Curly hair is back in style."

I have no way to quantify it but if so I'm honored to be part of it. Do you find it to be "back in style?"

If I had to really analyze that statement, I'd disagree. There has never been a better time for curly hair until now. Places of employment have really started to ditch their oppressive policies regarding looks and hair. There are more products now than ever before and there's more information out there than before about how to care for curly hair.
The curly hair are really so nice to look if it proper maintained by the person. The natural curly hair is so nice to look, but it difficult to maintain it. The soft and silky hair is easy to maintain, It is easy to wash and comb the hair. But the curly hair is too difficult to wash and maintain.

Takes me less time to do my hair than it does my straight friends, who always blow-dry and straighten their hair after washing and in the mornings on second-day hair. Plus straight folks tend to wash their hair more often.

According to my hairdresser, curly hair is in style.

I don't think it's as in style as it could be, but I do think more people are embracing it than they were 10 years ago.

I don't necessarily think it's about being in style, but more about people just deciding to embrace their natural hair. I think in some way or another, curly hair has always been stylish. But now people are starting to see natural curls as pretty too, instead of just those done with a curling iron.

I don't know if curly hair is in style, but I do know that more and more people nowadays really rock their curly hair and portray so much confidence that I think others notice it more than they used to.

I think it is back in style with Africian American women (or women of color, whatever term we attach). I see more such women rocking their natural hair than white women. Not that it is good or bad nut just an observation of what I see. I guess everything goes in fads. In the 80s, it was all about perms. Twenty years later, it was all about straightening. That said, glad to see more rocking their curls. Count me in on that bandwaggon.

I would ve had the best hair in the 80's... all the teasing and fluffing and hair spray, but I would've just been able to brush and go... *sigh
I think there has never been more product and styling help availability at least.
2a medium porous, You can see my wavy tutorials here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...ZNxhBHSXAW40OQ and my wavy blog is The Wavy Nation http://wavynation.wordpress.com
... And the number of curly & wavy styling tools is crazy now. I'm not sure curly hair is as stylish now as it was in say 1988-1994 (my high school & early college days!).
I think perhaps by "in style" she meant the reemergence of the natural hair movement which was also big back in the 70s. That's why some people are calling so many black women wearing their hair in its natural state a "fad", Therefore, ignoring the fact that there have always been black women who have worn there hair in its natural state. And ignoring that some of us who weren't always natural did so before recent years.

Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it.
I don't pay attention to trends but as far as CGs go, it's timeless and ALWAYS in style
