Model Ways

Plus-size model Philomena Kwao stumbled into modeling right after she shaved her head. Sporting a short Natural, the British-Ghanaian model took the industry by storm with her 5’10” stature, flawless chocolate complexion and sexy curves.

“I model almost exclusively with my Natural hair because that has become a part of my image, my brand—and my clients really like it,” shared the beauty during her exclusive convo with SBH. “It really has set me apart from the other models.” Philomena is all about embracing natural beauty and follows the philosophy of feeling comfortable in the skin you’re in. So much so that she wrote her new children’s book, The Queen In Me, as a celebration of the beauty of Afrocentric features and darker skin.
