Where’s the natural hair emoji?!

Ever noticed how all the lady emojis have straight hair? Yeah, not cool!

The official emojis were smart enough to finally give us more skin color options for our emojis (finally!), but now we have more demands: natural hair emojis, please!

Apparently, Black-ish star Yara Shahidi agrees with us, because she posted the following pic on Instagram with the caption “* insert nonexistent curly hair emoji.”

Ok, emojis: you’ve heard our demands. Now make it work!

Update: As of February 2018, Unicode as announced 77 new emojis, including a variety of long and short curly-haired emojis! There will also be red-headed emojis due to popular demand.

Yara FTW!
