The Original Afrobaby

          Established in the spring of 2013, the Afrobaby movement was created as a creative response to society’s policing of both natural beauty, i.e.  natural hair, and the expression of art and music. Since then, it has expanded to an internet platform to showcase natural hair and the various facades of the streets it has grown from. By joining the Afrobaby movement, you are joining a celebration of beauty and uniqueness, and promoting a positive outlook on oneself and others regardless of hair texture, gender, race and other classifications.

          Aligned with the idea of freedom of expression, the Afrobaby movement is a message built for those that dare to be bold. Heavily inspired by street art, hip hop, and the ever-shaping natural hair journey, its roots speak to independent thinkers that have a hustle to create something beautiful. Afrobaby movement is about artistic freedom and being a trendsetter, all in the name of fun and exploration.
