“We were over the moon when we learned redhead emoji were officially coming in 2018. Now, it looks like we'll see another step forward for more diverse representations of people, this time with natural hair.
On Dec. 4, Unicode Consortium (responsible for choosing emoji for all platforms) debuted its potential new ones for 2018. They won't be finalised until January 2018, but so far the curly hair emoji are a promising addition. In the proposal available to the public, the official description of these emoji says that they're "used to represent either curly or afro hair." As with all emoji, the curls will be available on a range of skin tones.”
