Why I Love Tomiko Fraser Hines Hair

Photo by Guy Viau

I gave you a hint Friday.  I decided to create a separate post on Why I Love Tomiko Fraser Hines before I post the interview because my introduction was way to long, and a little to much about myself…lol.

In 2001 I was a year into my natural hair journey. While I thought I was grown, I was a very impressionable junior in high school. 2001 was also a significant year because I was exposed to pro-natural hair images; India Arie’s Acoustic Soul album, the book Nappily Ever After and the movie Head Over Heels featuring model and actress Tomiko Frasier.

Even before the movie Head Over Heels, I flooded my myspace page with images of the now Mrs. Tomiko Frasier Hines. I loved reading seventeen magazine, but couldn’t always connect with the images. Many of the few African-American models had much farer skin, with longer, and curlier hair than I.

Seeing Tomiko in drug store makeup displays, blazing ads for Target, Gap, Tommy Hilfiger, Alfani, Gemey, J.Crew, Talbots, Liz Claiborne, and Maybeline (to name a few) AND movies with Freddie Prince Junior gave me the enforcement I needed to be comfortable in my own skin.

Eleven years ago when I first saw Tomiko, her being and success became a part of my self-esteem foundation. Tomiko continues to be an inspiration.
