In a world where we use emojis on a daily basis, it’s hard to believe the lack of diversity when it comes to emoji hair types, but that’s all about to change.
Today Dove Hair is releasing the first-ever emoji keyboard designed to represent curly-haired girls everywhere! With slightly over 80% of curly-haired women and girls feeling underrepresented, the specialist at Dove Hair knew it was time your rizos got some emoji love, too.
“1 in 3 women in the United States have curly or wavy hair, yet there are zero images of these women today in the increasingly common language of emojis," shared Rob Candelino, Vice President of Haircare at Unilever. "That felt wrong to us, so we are fixing it and hope by doing so, we will continue inspiring all women to love their curls."
The Dove Love Your Curls Emoji Keyboard, developed in partnership with Snaps, will include over 131 curly emoji variations featuring an array of skin tones and hair colors so you can spread your curly hair love in many ways.
And this amazing launch doesn’t stop there! To celebrate, Dove Hair will also be partnering with Twitter so every time anyone tweets with the hashtag #LoveYourCurls, a custom curly-haired emoji will auto-generate in the tweet.
