Black men with Teenie Weenie Afros natural hairstyles
This is a thread about black men with Teenie Weenie Afros (TWA) which are short afro hairstyles for natural hair. Post pictures or advice or questions on this topic Smile

What is a teenie weenie afro
It is a short afro where the shape is even all around the head so the hair on the sides is about the same length on the top which makes a circular shape when seeing from the front. The hair should not be higher than 3 inches as otherwise a higher or longer length is considered an afro.
In a TWA the hair is not modified so the kinky curly hair keeps its natural shape so teenie weenie afros are for natural hair and can be a considered a "natural hairstyle".

Pictures of teenie weenie afros
I start, this is Kolo Toure, footballer from Ivory Coast, he varies the length on the sides but keeps it very similar to the top so that he gets the even circle shape. The top about 2 inches long:

RE: Black men with Teenie Weenie Afros natural hairstyles
Great thread, J!

Here are pictures of former boxer Sugar Ray Leonard with a teenie weenie Afro during his prime. He kept his kinky curly short and shaped all around which was a relatively popular natural style back in the 1980s when Sugar Ray Leonard was boxing professionally.

Morgan Freeman Afro

As he got older, Morgan Freeman tamed his Afro from his younger years and instead kept his kinky curly hair short but still with some volume and thus his teenie weenie afro!

RE: Black men with Teenie Weenie Afros natural hairstyles
Some more pictures of the teenie weenie afro. In this case the curly hair is closer to the coiled type than to the kinky type. Good example tho of an even haircut for the short afro.

The Teenie Weenie Afro hairstyle of Brandon T. Jackson.

Brandon T. Jackson's hair is usually in a temple fade haircut or any other type of fade haircut, but he has also kept a Teenie Weenie Afro with lots of potential for a full-on Afro!
