Top Ten Tuesday: Black Hair Diversity (September 15th)

This list is in no particular order.
 1. Short Short Hair

~Dark Genesis by A.D. Koboah

~The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl by Issa Rae


2. Color

I only really see colorful hair on women/girls in either comics or children fiction. I want to see more women having colorful hair outside these two fields.

~Moldylocks and the Three Beards

~Zodiac Starforce #1


Can we get more variety in the hairstyles on women beyond short/long hair being down.


3. Pig Tails

(yes, she has a cute gap in her mouth)

~Think Big


4. Braids

~Fresh Romance #1

5. Pony Tail

~Eartha Kitt Femme Fatale #1

6. Mohawk

~Storm #1


7. Short Curly Hair

Halloween Eve could be considered styled too.

~The Movement#1

~Halloween Eve


8. Long Curly Hair

This one is the one that bothered me. Once you actually get a woman with curly hair it is almost always long. I have short curly hair so that may be why I’m conscious of this.

~Fight Like A Girl #1

~OH NO! (Or How My Science Project Destroyed The World)


9. Short Straight Hair

~Effigy #1

~Sleepy Holow: Providence #1

10. Intersection

The Jem comics are one of the best in variety in hair types.
