THECOUNT.COM "ALWAYS OPEN! Since 2005!" - August 4, 2015

Remember Rachel Dolezal? Apparently Allure magazine doesn’t because they just used a white hair model in an article about how to obtain the perfect afro.

White actress and model, Marissa Neitling, is pictured in the how-to article that is now causing a massive backlash among African-Americans on social media.

“An Afro is not an introvert’s hairstyle,” reads the intro to the tutorial, a step-by-step informing reader that, “You (Yes, You) Can Have an Afro, Even If You Have Straight Hair.”

Allure defended the spread, saying: “The Afro has a rich cultural and aesthetic history. In this story, we show women using different hairstyles as an individual expressions of style. Using beauty and hair as a form of self-expression is a mirror of what’s happening in our country today. The creativity is limitless—and pretty wonderful.”
