The Emojis Only Curly-Haired Girls Will Understand

Lisa Patulny


Beauty company Dove—maker of cosmetics as well as some pretty excellent advertising campaigns—has long been a champion of inclusive definitions of beauty. Not satisfied to talk just about traditional body confidence, it's now creating a conversation around naturally curly hair. Following on from a tear-inducing video and e-book, Dove has released curly-haired emojis and GIFs! Said emojis are adorable and offer women who don’t have stick-straight hair an animated option that looks like them. (Because haircut emoji lady is definitely not one-size-fits-all.) In true Dove fashion, each emoji comes in a range of different skin and hair tones. Additionally, if you add the hashtag #LoveYourCurls to a tweet, a curly-haired emoji will appear—too cute!

The free Dove Love Your Curls Emoji Keyboard is available for download at the App Store and also on Google Play.
