A perfect blend of curls and generosity, these ten celebrities are a major inspiration for curlies everywhere


4. Shakira

This curly she-wolf serves as an inspiration to Latinas everywhere. After failed attempts with local producers, she decided to do things her own way. The result? International fame, and a title as one of the most successful Latinas in entertainment. Sure, she’s got the hips and the curls, but did you know she is also an involved humanitarian? Shakira is passionate about a child’s right to quality education. At age 18, she created the Barefoot Foundation, a U.S non-profit and non-governmental organization partnered with the Pies Descalzos Foundation in Colombia, her native country. Named after her first album, the Barefoot Foundation not only works to spread awareness, but to provide children who are subjected to violence and poverty with education and nutritious meals. Already they have built six schools and have aided over 6,000 children. On top of that, Shakira is constantly meeting with world leaders to promote universal education, and she still has time to release a new album!

Hi! I'm Susonnah Gonzalez. I write, work and live in Austin, TX. I began my wavy hair journey in college, which is when I really began to explore the needs of wavy hair and the products that work best with it. Every day is different with my hair but every day I learn something new!

Can someone explain to me how wearing a wig makes you a "Natural Curly"? Well known wiggies (and I mean FULL Wiggies)...not clip in pieces here and there...would be Beyonce and Tyra. You might as well add Wendy Williams, Vivica Fox and that gold digging chick from Atlanta Housewives (Kim Zolciak)to this list because I see Wig Central posted here.

You tell'em ELA234!

tyra, beyonce, and oprah: none of them wear their hair natural. When its curly, its done w/ a flat iron or a curling iron. I know beyonce and tyra DO have naturally curly hair, but don't wear it that way

ok really most pf the girls on there wear weave your not fooling anybody

Seriously..this site is about beautiful NATURAL curlies!!!! c'mon already..why do they post these people all the time.

TYRA AND BEYONCE?! They don't even wear their real hair, so to reference them in a natural hair article is pretty ridiculous. Wow, try some actual curly celebs next time. Who edited this!?

I'm with curly princesa. India Arie, Alicia Keys, Julia Roberts, Yaya Dacosta...where are they?

Angelina Jolie??? Madonna?? TYRA??? Really...who came up with this..not considering that most people on this list do not have naturally curly hair

Shakira's native county is spelled "Colombia" ;)
