Dove Hair’s Love Your Curls mission, and is a global launch with a purpose – to help women and girls embrace and love their curls by ensuring they see accurate reflections of their hair in their everyday lives. As an extension of Dove Hair’s mission Dove Love Your Curls Emojis were recently launched.
As a curly girl and natural hair woman, I’m sure you noticed that your hair type is missing from the Emoji keyboard. And you’re not alone!
- 1 in 3 women in the U.S. have curly hair, and 74% of people in the U.S. report using Emojis daily. Yet there continues to be no representation of curly hair available in the Unicode Emoji keyboard.
- While Emojis are diversifying (as evidenced by the last update), there is still a “one size fits all” for hair – straight and sleek, the traditional beauty ideal. Reports on the next round of Emojis to be added to the official keyboard still do not include curly hair, either.
Dove Love Your Curls Emojis keyboard contains 27 unique curly hair designs, with selectable skin tone and hair color – resulting in a total of 131 curly emoji variations, including seven animated GIFs to bring curl expression and love to life!
The first-ever curly girl emojis are available for free download in the App Store and Google Play, and can be used in text and messenger systems, including iMessage, SMS/text, Facebook messenger and WhatsApp (standard data rates apply).
