Although Apple has recently expanded its emojis with additional food options such as the beloved taco, when it comes to hairstyles they’ve failed to meet our needs with every iOS update. *flips desk* The heroic individuals at Dove have heard our cries though and they’ve stepped up to fill the void in a major way.
The Dove Love Your Curls Emojis
are some of the most adorable ones we’ve ever seen and they’re available for free download in the App store and Google Play starting today! Users will be able to select skin tone, curl type and hair length.
Emoji have become a form of communication all on their own. You can order a whole entire pizza by sending just one emoji slice these days so if that’s not clear indication that emojis are the future, we don’t know what is fam.
Dove had this to say to Mashable
about their latest exciting launch:
“Knowing how prevalent and widely used emojis have become, it was saddening to us there remained no reflection of curly hair in the official keyboard, even after recent updates,” Rob Candelino, Dove VP of marketing, tells Mashable. “The best part about using emojis is being able to express a feeling, thought or sentiment with an icon that is representative of you.”
In addition to the emoji debut, Dove has partnered with Twitter so that every time someone tweets #LoveYourCurls, a curly-haired emoji will appear. HA!
These days, we’ve all been embracing our curls a little more closely and now we can do so even in emoji speak.
