Curly girls rejoice- an emoji made just for you is finally here! If you’ve feel misrepresented by the Emoji keyboard, fret not because Dove is putting an end to this #curlyhairprob with the launch of their new Dove Love Your Curls Emojis.
“Dove Hair is committed to… ensuring women and girls see accurate reflections of themselves in the world around them, including… social media — which is why we’re so excited to introduce the Dove Love Your Curls Emojis,” Unilever said in a statement. According to Dove, “this is a Global launch with a purpose – to help women and girls embrace and love their curls by ensuring they see accurate reflections of their hair in their everyday lives.”
Did you know that 1 in 3 women in the United States has curly hair?! 72% of curly-haired women say that they would like to use an emoji that closely resembles them when texting and 3 out of 5 women say that they cannot accurately depict how they look with Emojis.
When nearly 75% of the population uses Emoji’s, there should be an accurate representation of such a large percentage of the population. A one-size-fits all hairstyle (sleek and straight) presents a limiting approach to formally traditional beauty standards, but at Mane Addicts, we LOVE your curls and want you to love them too.
This new keyboard includes 27 unique curly hair styles with a variety of skin tones and hair colors that you can personalize, along with 7 animated gifs for your texting pleasure.
In addition, for today only, Dove Hair will kick off a partnership with Twitter, so every time someone tweets #LoveYourCurls, a curly Emoji will automatically appear within the tweet right after the hashtag.
So start downloading and get tweeting!! We can’t wait to see the Emoji that looks most like you!
