The Fashion Industry has also had problems with providing makeup for black models. Unfortunately, blacks may meet “hairstylists and makeup artists who aren’t trained to work with kinkeir hair textures or darker skin tones”. On instagram, Nykhor Paul wrote a paragraph about her irritation that include this statement , “Stop apologizing it’s insulting and disrespectful to me and my race it doesn’t help, seriously! Make an effort at least!” Even Tyra Banks “had to create her own foundation kit when starting her career to avoid embarrassing makeup mishaps” (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/black-models-challenges-fashion-week_55f970a7e4b0e333e54beeac).
Allowing african american to wear their natural hair for fashion shows has also been a debate for many years. In fashion shows, “willowy models with flowing locks...strut the catwalk in skimpy lingerie fashions,” but Maria Borges decided to ignore the norm and “delight…[her] natural hair fans”. In November 2015, Maria “brought Natural Hair to the Victoria’s Secret Runway for the First Time” (http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/12/living/maria-borges-victorias-secret-natural-hair-feat/). Also, wearing natural styles is so uncommon that the first contestant to wear dreadlocks in the Miss World pageant was in 2015 in a competition that started in 1951 and in 2007 for the Miss Universe pageant that started in 1952(http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2015/12/21/miss-jamaica-dreadlocks_n_8855790.html).
