Curly-Haired Emojis Are FINALLY a Thing

If you’re a curly-haired girl, you may be wondering why Apple hasn’t created curly-haired emojis. Luckily, Dove took charge and created its own keyboard full of them!

“When 73 percent of people in this country claim to use emojis every day, they’re very quickly becoming the new currency of communications,” Unilever VP-Haircare Marketing Rob Candelino said.

One in three women in the U.S. have curly hair, and Candelino felt they should be able to have emojis that reflect that. Dove created the keyboard as a part of their Love Your Curls initiative.

You can download the Dove Love Your Curls Emojis keyboard on Google Play or the App Store—it’s free! The keyboard includes a wealth of diversity, with options to choose between different skin colors, hair lengths and even a curly-haired baby.

As part of the initiative, Dove even partnered with Twitter to make a curly-haired girl appear every time you use the hashtag #LoveYourCurls.

We couldn’t be happier! Have you downloaded the new emojis, collegiettes?
