Ideeli. You may be wondering, “what is this? what do they sell?” Or, maybe you’re in the know when it comes to this members-only community. If so, you’ve got a leg up on me. Ideeli is an online company that offers limited time deals on top fashion, travel and home. And, as you can see from this image I found on the Internet, they use models with natural hair in their advertisements. Love it! *snaps* Here at NHM, I’ve been talking a lot recently about natural hair and fashion. That’s because it keeps cropping up! From Viola Davis at the Oscars, to natural hair in Italian Vogue, to the House of Dereon Spring and Summer 2012 collection, fashion and natural hair are hot topics.
Speaking of which, this advertisement makes me think of the fashion spread in NY Times Magazine, that featured Corrinne Bailey Rae, Solange Knowles, and Les Nubians in formal gowns with natural hair. Do you dare bare your natural hair in formal attire? I sure would. My hair is my best accessory!
What, if anything, would keep you from wearing your natural hair to a formal event?
