We’re thinking pink all week with the new Barbie movie premiering in just a few days! To say the internet has been buzzing with all things Barbie is an understatement as we see different brand collaborations, pink carpet premieres, and every major media outlet covering this iconic character. With the emergence of collaborations with beauty brands such as Kitsch and Chi, we’re seeing pink-themed accessories and styling tools to help elevate our natural textures to Barbie-level proportions. We’re so excited to see the range of Barbie characters they’ve added to the movie with celebrities like Issa Rae, America Ferrera, and Alexandra Shipp bringing an updated look to the overall styling of the traditional Barbie. While Barbie has been traditionally known for her slim figure and blonde hair, we’ve seen an evolution of how she’s represented to reflect modern standards of beauty, including hair types and textures.
Barbie’s ‘60s-themed signature hairstyle features a long blonde sleek ponytail which can be replicated with a blow dryer or straightener. We’ve seen this achieved on natural hair textures with extensions and weaves. However, if you’re looking for inspiration to create a Barbie-inspired hairstyle that does not involve any heat, we’ve got you covered with an array of options that show the range of natural hair. Whether you’re rocking braids, cornrows, twists, or curls there is a Barbie style for you.
