It's become a frequent topic of conversation these days. Kinks and curls are becoming the new straight and it not a smooth transition in the Corporate world, some black women still face challenges because they are "natural". An reporter in the States even documented her "big chop". Natural hair headlines (no pun intended) :-) has gotten a lot of attention.

This will be enlightening for every woman in the whole world. Though, in smaller cities or towns, locks might raise eyebrows, but for the most part, in large metropolitan areas, wearing locks isn't such a big deal. Who knows "locks" will be the new generation of famous women in business.
