Drake’s Curly Hair in New Afro Hairstyle For Movie

Famous rapper Drake has a new Afro hairstyle for his curly hair as part of being cast in the new movie Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. See the pictures of Drake’s new Afro hairstyle and let us know if you think his new 1970s “big hair” style suits him or not!

Drake’s new Afro hairstyle for Anchorman 2: A reminder of the epicness of big curly hair

Afros are back, and more men are growing out their curls proud as part of our Manly Curls revolution. Whether it be natural curly hair in the form of Usher and his kinky curly Afro hairstyle or Bradley Copper and his permed curly hair, it is a reality that “curlz get the gurlz” and thus male celebrities are starting to move into the trend of growing their big ‘fros and curly ‘dos like it’s 1974.

We have said it right from the very start of Manly Curls: curly hair rocks; and I’m stoked to find that our “gro dose curlz” word is spreading like wildfire and that “buzz cuts” and “dead rats”, as I’ve termed in my book The Curly Hair Book, are becoming a rarity and instead “awesome manes” (another coined word of mine) are becoming the name of the game among curly men.

Today’s featured curly male celebrity is my good pal Aubrey Drake Graham aka Drake (pictured above), a famous Canadian singer/rapper who has sported some wicked Afro hairstyle for the recently-launched movie, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

For those unaware, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is the sequel to the 2004 comedy film, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, starring Will Ferrell as anchorman Ron Burgundy, the main character of the movie. Will Ferrell himself is a curly haired dude too although Ferrell had his curly hair texturized (i.e. smoothen) to play Ron Burgundy in both movies; usually Will Ferrell is a Type III curly haired male as per my popular curly hair type guide, and, in both movies, Will Ferrell appears instead with Type I curls.

So, Drake was casted to be in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and played a cameo, and, in the movie, Drake’s character sports an epic Afro hairstyle as you’ll see below. The movie is based in the 1970s, and, back then, having big curly hair was the dream of every man, whether white or black, especially since such big hair allowed one to discreetly conceal his stash of Mary Jane in case the cops stopped him (true story, some dudes did use their ‘fros for that!). Here are the pictures of Drake with a big Afro curly hairstyle:

Not bad, not bad at all…

Unfortunately, Drake’s Afro hair is a curly wig

Drake always keeps his Type IV curls either near-shaved or short (see the first picture in this article), which meant that, for him to be able to sport a big Afro hairstyle in time for the movie, his only real option was to wear a curly haired wig. And so he did.

Having said the above, that artificial Afro of Drake doesn’t look bad at all, and I think it’d be a hit among his female fans if he gets enough inspiration to grow out that natural ‘fro. Heck, we could direct him to read my curly hairstyles for men guide or my men’s hair products guide to really nail his hair care to a T and keep his Afro on auto-pilot. Or he could just get my bestselling book, The Curly Hair Book: Or How Men Can Now Rock Their Waves, Coils and Kinks, and be done for once and all with the intricate details of looking after curly hair. Whatever it’d be, me thinks Drake’s Afro hairstyle looks pretty epic and he should consider growing those curls of his to replicate that same hairstyle he now wears as a wig.

Your turn now, do you think Drake’s Afro hairstyle looks good on him or should he instead keep his curly hair short and forget about growing a ‘fro? Let us know below as I will be sending this article and your opinions to Drake and hopefully we can convince him to change his hairstyle into a ‘fro!

All the best, gentlemen.

    Hey, Rogelio! Just found your post—I think Drake makes that work for him! I think it helps that the ladies are going to run to Drake no matter what his hair is doing…!
