UK’s Stylist Features Lily Lightbourn, Natural Hair

May 31, 2016

Lily Lightbourn has been highlighted in a Stylist feature on natural hair, with the Bermudian model telling the British magazine, “if young girls see us embracing our Afros, it will encourage them to do the same.”

The article — called “The Natural Afro Hair Looks That Ruled The 2016 Catwalks — says, ”With a focus on natural beauty, afro hair sailed down the spring catwalks. Five exciting new models reveal why this look is much more than a passing trend.”

In the story, Ms. Lightbourn says, “My hair was such a big issue for me growing up – I have that coarse texture that no-one seemed to want. But now, when I see women rocking their natural hair on the catwalks, it makes me feel incredible. If young girls see us embracing our Afros, it will encourage them to do the same.”

The photo of Ms. Lightbourn was also shared on Instagram by fashion powerhouse Versace, with the shot — which features her wearing a $6,800 Versace jacket — being posted to their 5.8 million followers and earning more than 20,000 likes.
