It’s Baaaaack! The 60’s Afro

13 Nov

Geez, wearing you hair longer is no longer solely the province of us “old guys” who lived through the period when they were de rigeur from a fashion sense…

Eat your heart out Bieber!

Dante De Blasio Named Sixth Most Influential Teen By TIME

TIME magazine named Dante de Blasio the sixth most influential teen of 2013, crowning him New York City’s “latest fashion icon” due to his “now-iconic” afro.

Dante even beat out Malala Yousafzai, Justin Bieber, and Malia Obama.

Back in August, the 15-year-old son of mayor-elect Bill de Blasio appeared in a now famous campaign ad in which he spoke against stop and frisk and the Bloomberg administration. The ad breathed new life into de Blasio’s campaign, and thrust Dante, and his hairdo, into the national spotlight.

Dante’s afro even garnered the praise and envy of President Obama.

Dante’s sister Chiara, however, did not make TIME’s list despite her own campaign ad for her dad, and her awesome collection of headbands.

The Greatest ‘Fro of all time?

That would have to be Angela Davis…
