In Allure Magazine’s August 2015 issue an article titled, “You (Yes, You) Can Have An Afro.*” The asterisk reads: “even if you have straight hair” has the publication in the middle of a cultural appropriation debate.
Some feel that this calls for an apologize but instead Allure publicly defends its spread.
We wanted this to be a celebration of self-expression. We hear your feedback & we'll make sure our future stories reflect all perspectives.
