About Jourdan Dunn
Jourdan Dunn is a model and a mother. Known for her fun personality and hardworking attitude as much as her timeless beauty, she has worked on campaigns for Burberry and Saint Laurent, appeared on numerous Vogue covers and has walked in shows from Christian Dior to Victoria’s Secret.

  • Dunn was born in 1990 in Greenford, West London, where she grew up with her receptionist mother and her two younger brothers, Antoine and Kain.
  • Dunn was scouted by Storm Models, aged 14, in the Hammersmith branch of Primark. Within a year of being signed, she made her catwalk debut walking for Marc Jacobs at New York Fashion Week. Soon after, she walked for Ralph Lauren and fronted campaigns for Topshop and Oxfam.
  • 2008 was Dunn’s year. She landed her first Vogue Italia cover for their legendary Black Issue, gracing the front page with Naomi Campbell, Chanel Iman and Liya Kebedo. A few months later, she closed the Issa show walking with Campbell and Daniella Issa Helayel herself. She said of the experience: “words cannot describe how it felt…I want to relive it all.”
  • In October 2008, she made her debut on the cover of British Vogue, alongside Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Eden Clarke. Shot by Patrick Demarchelier, the young models graced the cover representing different types of beauty. Alexandra Shulman explained that Dunn was chosen because she was, “the cool face of young black beauty.”
  • Dunn won Model of the Year at the 2008 British Fashion Awards. Supermodel Erin O’Connor wrote for Vogue.co.uk that watching Dunn pick up the award was her, “favourite moment of the evening” because of the young model’s endearing surprise at winning the award.
  • Aged 18, Dunn discovered she was pregnant with boyfriend of five years, Jordan Cummings. She kept her pregnancy quiet for almost six months, but then went on to show off her baby bump when walking for Jean Paul Gaultier at her seven-month mark. She has spoken about how supportive the  fashion industry was during and after her pregnancy, telling Sunday Times Style: “this is a good career for a working mother.”
  • Dunn gave birth to her son, Riley in December 2009 and returned to the catwalk just 10 weeks after giving birth, walking for Aquascutum in a simple, belted trench.
  • Dunn has spoken out about Riley’s sickle cell anaemia and how she wants to use her high-profile position to raise awareness of the disorder; she supports the Sickle Cell Society through fundraising and charity events.
  • She regularly praises her mother for being her main support in helping to raise her young son. Although she is no longer with Cummings, she has said that Riley has a great relationship with his father.
  • In February 2011, Dunn – alongside male model Sacha M’Baye – became the face of the spring/summer 2011 Burberry campaign.
  • Dunn was a part of the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony in a celebration of British fashion. She posed, with David Gandy, in a Jonathon Saunders dress and Stephen Jones headpiece.
  • Alongside her many fashion endeavours, Dunn has also starred in her own cooking show, Well Dunn By Jourdan Dunn, on Jay-Z’s Youtube channel and has appeared in numerous music videos for both Beyonce and Jessie J.
  • Dunn announced in 2013 that she would be temporarily moving from London to New York for work. She is a firm favourite to work with in the modelling world for her vibrant and down-to-earth personality and is regularly seen socialising with fellow models Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls.
  • For the second issue of Miss Vogue, Dunn appeared on the cover, telling us: “Sometimes I feel so guilty about missing out on everything, but I have to remember that I am doing this for [my son], for his future…”
  • In March 2014, Dunn spoke at The Vogue Festival. She discussed her first trip to New York: “I was 16. My mobile bill was crazy because I was just on the phone to my mum every day; crying and complaining, then some more crying and more complaining.”

BLACK WOOLLY HAIR!–BLACK WOMEN!–“THE CRUCIFIXION OF BLACK FEMALE HAIR”-A POEM BY MENELIK CHARLES ON FACEBOOK!

from menelik charles on facebook

The Crucifixion of Black female hair…
The ‘ghetto’s a get go
An Afro’s a ‘no-no’

& locs just shut
Up the shop
Why is my hair such
A horror show?
This is a story I’d
Like to know…
My skin was subject of sin
My lips the subject of quips
And my rear the subject of sneers
Now my hair’s treated as queer
This is no longer cynical
The subject’s almost Biblical
You may not believe us but
My hair’s like Jesus
And you are the Romans
Doing the stoning
But you’ll all soon be running…when my hair makes a 2nd Coming

Back To Woolly NATURAL BLACK PEOPLE’S HAIR -THE MOST Beautiful Hair on the PLANET! -This. Sister cuts it all off and gets BACK To Wearing her hair NATURAL!

February 1, 2012

Stylist advocates for return to natural black hair styles, with a big chop first

By Lolly Bowean

Updated: February 01, 2012 – 3:01 am

Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — On the cold, winter night that Sharon Coleman shaved off all her hair, she sat surrounded by other African-American women who were grinning and applauding as the clippers hummed.

And when every strand of her shoulder-length, straight hair was on the floor, Coleman stood from her seat, and fell into the arms of the women circled around her. The room was filled with strangers who had come to witness the new hair ritual, show support and find courage to do the same, Coleman said.

“All the women just embraced me and were very encouraging,� she said as she recalled the event. “Everyone was complimenting me: ‘I like the way you look. I love your hair.’�

For African-American women, hair is often a battle ground for how beauty is defined. For one group of black women, shaving their hair to a close-cropped, boyish style has become a way of empowering themselves, rejecting mainstream standards of beauty and shedding their obsession with extensive, daily hair rituals.

Earlier this month, Emon Fowler launched her Chicago-based “Harriet Experiment,� in which she is asking black women to abandon weaves, wigs and chemical relaxers and spend a new year with new hair. She wants the women to start with the “big chop,� in which they shave off their processed hair completely and start anew.

Fowler, 30, has organized gatherings to take place throughout the year for women to cut their hair while surrounded by cheerleaders who have done the same. She has been recruiting women on Facebook, stopping them in grocery stores and making appearances at fairs and festivals to promote her cause.

“This is all about breaking free from that hair bondage,� said Fowler, a hair stylist. She says her project isn’t about building a clientele, but changing mind-sets. “When a woman decides to cut all her hair, she discovers something underneath that is liberating. It can be therapeutic because you have to let go of the idea that you need these superficial extras to feel beautiful. It says, ‘I’ve accepted me.’�

Fowler said she was inspired to start her movement after reflecting on the life of Harriet Tubman, the iconic hero who risked her life to free hundreds of slaves. She sees her mission as helping to free African-American women from the emotional and psychological baggage associated with their hair.

There are varying opinions in the black community about the meaning of straight hair, but some think it’s an attempt to imitate the white standard of beauty. Fowler said she wants to reinforce to African-American women that they don’t have to change their hair to feel pretty or accepted.

For African-American women, shaving off all their hair is nothing new. In the 1970s, thousands of black women wore their hair short and close-cropped as a symbol of racial pride and consciousness, said Lanita Jacobs, an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Southern California.

But in Fowler’s project, the women who decide to undergo the big chop do it publicly, and with a built-in support system of cheerleaders, Jacobs said.

That support can help ease what can be a shock to black women’s psyche, one expert said.

“Black women have been conditioned to believe that our hair, in its natural state, is not beautiful, not professional and not manageable,� said Chris-Tia Donaldson, a Chicago-based author who wrote a book about the topic. “When you go to hair that is short, it can take a toll on your self-esteem. You have to learn how to work it and own it.�

There is a growing trend toward wearing hair more naturally, which some believe means a change in the definition of what beauty is for the next generation of African-Americans, Jacobs said.

“There has been a radical shift in black people’s minds on what can be beautiful,� she said. “Increasingly, black men are making room for non-straightened and non-long hair as a qualifier for beauty. More African-American celebrities are experimenting with natural hair.

“What black women do with their hair has always created questions: Who are you? Who are you trying to be? What does this mean?�

(EDITORS: STORY CAN END HERE)

(EDITORS: BEGIN OPTIONAL TRIM)

When any woman shaves her hair close to the scalp, it can unearth feelings of vulnerability, said Jacobs. For those African-American women who have straightened their hair for much of their lives, it can be particularly stirring.

“You are in some cases stepping away from something that you know and into new, unknown territory,� Jacobs said. “When you do the big chop, people come up and ask questions. It can complicate your appeal to the opposite sex, it can complicate your job searching endeavors, it can complicate your family relationships. Your family may ask, who are you?�

Because her hero, Harriet Tubman freed an estimated 700 slaves, Fowler has an ambitious mission to find 700 black women willing to undergo the big chop this year, she said. So far, she’s only gotten a couple dozen to join her on the journey. But her project isn’t just about numbers, she said. It’s about making a statement.

(END OPTIONAL TRIM)

The project actually comes at a time when more African-American women are abandoning the mainstream weaves and relaxers and making peace with their natural textures, statistics show.

The number of black women who said they do not use chemicals to straighten their hair jumped to 36 percent in 2011 from 25 percent in 2010, according to a report by Mintel, a consumer spending and market research firm. Sales of hair relaxer boxed kits dropped 17 percent between 2006 and 2011, Mintel’s report showed.

In addition, there has been a recent flood of blogs, websites, meet-up groups and YouTube video postings devoted to demonstrating to women how to transition to natural textures and how to style their new hair, Donaldson said.

(EDITORS: BEGIN OPTIONAL TRIM)

Antinique Bearden-Nunes said she’d been thinking about leaving her straight hair behind for a year, but she was afraid of how she would look. When she saw other women at Fowler’s launch celebrating the cut, she stepped up to do the same.

“I feel like I can do anything now,� said Bearden-Nunes, 24, who was still giddy about her haircut days after it was done. “I finally can care less about what others think. I have three young children, and I can’t let them see any shadow of low self-esteem.�

Bearden-Nunes said she’s been so pleased with her decision that she’s been oblivious to the reaction of her friends and strangers on the street. Her fiance wasn’t at all thrilled when she came home with less than an inch of hair.

“I told him, ‘I’m still me, I’m still beautiful,’� she said.

(END OPTIONAL TRIM)

After years of contemplating the bold step, Coleman, 55, decided that she would cut all of her processed hair off. For Coleman, it was a break away from what she called an unhealthy obsession and lifestyle.

“I’ve had chemicals in my hair since I was 14 or 15 years old,� she said. “It was like a vicious cycle. I was using chemicals monthly to get a touch up or a perm. I had to blow my hair out, use the curling iron. I’ve gone through so much over the last three years with hair pieces and wigs and such. I’m done with it.�

The day she arrived at work with her short cropped cut, Coleman said she noticed some of her colleagues paused and looked at her. Her manager, in particular, smiled and celebrated her new look.

But some of her friends have been less enthused when they see her hair, Coleman said. Some shake their heads and say they would have never done it.

“When you make a drastic change of this nature, you have to own it and thatâ™m doing. I walk with confidence, she saidThis is the new me!
