Target Nutcracker Commercial

This Target commercial is the second commercial/advertisement with natural hair models that I’ve found (I’m still trying to locate other commercials I’ve seen). In this commercial, you see a cashier with natural hair reminding a nutcracker during holiday season about the Target Red Card.

Here’s another Target advertisement that has models with natural hair.

  1. This is a great post. I happened upon your site via reading an article on African
    Export’s blog post about the Essence Magazine “diss”. I wanted to read how you would have written it and after reading your post, I kept reading some of your other posts and came to this one.

    This is a different perspective from the usual how, what and why of natural hair. To see how we are or are not represented in the media is something I discuss with my sister and friends on a regular basis. In this region, we have seen a lot of natural-haired sisters in commercials including Progressive Insurance, T J Maxx, Macy’s, and Kmart just to name a few. As a matter of fact, there is no shortage of commercials with natural sisters. It has been that way for a while now and I am happy about that.

    Keep up the good work and I look forward to visiting your site again.,

    • Thank you so much for your comment. I am so glad that you appreciate the purpose of my blog. There is a lot of room within the natural community for people to contribute. And I abide by one simple rule when it comes to blogging: “if you can’t say it any better, don’t say it at all”. Meaning, there are so many vloggers out there who do product reviews, style demonstrations, etc. (and do them well) that I didn’t really feel like I could personally contribute anything more. Instead, I wanted to talk about how we are represented in the media, and get people thinking about that.

      That’s why I loved the Gain commercial: it featured Tomiko Fraser Gaines and took place in a hair salon. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out on my blog.

      Thanks again for stopping by!
