I've attended many "Natural" beauty pageants in my life time and I've come to realize that "natural" is not the same for everyone. For some pageant systems it means no makeup, no spray tanning, no flippers, and no false eyelashes, and last, but not least, no fake hair. Fake hair is a no, no, but what about natural hair?
Time and time again I've seen beautiful girls in natural beauty pageants miss out on the "Prettiest Hair" award because their hair does not conform to the traditional pageant hair style. Natural ought to be what's natural for that contestant and what looks good on them. It shouldn't matter if the contestant is wearing an up-do, braids, a bun or Afro puffs. Her hair should be a compliment to her style, her personality and who she is. It shouldn't matter if her hair is curly, straight, or wavy as long as she knows how to wear it with style and confidence.
Everyone should have an opportunity to win the Prettiest Hair award and not just those that fit into a particular mold
