In the past few years, there has been an emerging trend in the number of beautiful black women getting back in touch with their roots. Opting for more natural Afrocentric-esque hairstyles as opposed to chemically relaxed tresses, these women have redefined what it means to be supernatural.

Angela Simmons, fashion designer and daughter of Rev Run of Run DMC, recently posted a photo of her beautiful natural mane from her twitter account, inspiring us to share with you some of our favorite ladies who rock bold and beautiful ‘fros.

1. Esperanza Spalding

Grammy award-winning Jazz musician Esperanza Spalding is taking the music industry by storm with her powerful vocal ability and talent. Her big and gorgeous ‘fro is just as brilliant.

2. Solange Knowles

With the recent changes in her style, both fashion and hair, we would be remiss not to include Solange Knowles. Whether ‘faux or real, her ‘fro embodies Bohemian beauty. “I walk differently now, sing differently; this hair has spirit and soul,” she has said. We couldn’t agree more.

3. Tracee Ellis Ross

Reed Between The Lines star Tracee Ellis Ross makes mom, the iconic Diana Ross, proud with her signature curly mane. The “pearl in curls,” her unique and free-spirited look is endlessly inspiring.

4. Yaya DaCosta

The Harlem native has embraced her natural roots since she stepped onto the scene in 2004 in America’s Next Top Model. We were delighted her divine natural beauty only matches her unwavering determination and fun, sassy attitude.

5. Jill Scott

Singer, songwriter and actress Jill Scott stepped onto the scene in 2000 turning heads with her exquisite beauty and soulful sound. Even though she’s rocking different styles now, her kinky-curly ‘fro is a look we’ll always love.

Honorable Mention: Angela Simmons

She may wear straight hair more often but when Angela Simmons revealed her natural ‘fro via Twitter, she took our breath away. Enormous, gorgeous and full, Angela’s ‘fro should see the light of day a lot more, in our opinion.

What are some other ‘fros you love?
