18 May Miss USA Shares Her Reason for Wearing Natural Hair
When Kára McCullough won the Miss USA crown last night, she was put in the spotlight for some problematic comments on healthcare and feminism. While speaking during the pageant’s Q&A section, Kára asserted her beliefs that health care was a privilege (as opposed to a right) and attempted to distance herself from the word “feminism.” While social media reactions called her out for inflammatory words, one of her choices during the night is receiving much more positive reception.
When Kára walked onto the stage with her fellow contestants, it quickly became clear that she alone had chosen to wear her natural curls. And as she explained to Refinery29, the choice was a deliberate one. Hairstylist Albert Luiz styled her curls using the CHI Deep Brilliance Olive & Monoi Oil Optimum Moisture Line.
