    Basically for us, in ancient times the beauty standard was similar to other African nations: A tall, light skinned, curvy or fat woman. Because those qualities were not so common with women at the time. You would call a woman with these qualities a "qalanjo" literally it means, a female elephant. But as times changed, the beauty of a commoner nomad woman from the country side became more wanted, a nomad woman would be dark skinned, usually have afro hair, skinny but still tall. Now in the 2010's again ancient beauty standards are applied. A new beauty thing is girls and boys dye their front teeth orange or red.
    Just like the debate in Korea between "Monolids vs Double Eyelids" In my country its "Afro vs soft hair" most Somalis have Afro, but it's pretty known that Somalis are among Ehtiopians and other East African the few Black Africans with straight hair.
    What about you guys?

    I wish my country wasnt so strict on what "beauty" is. Nowadays if you go to my country all you see is girls with fried hair trying to chemically straighten their hair, everybody has caked up faces trying to be light and wear the same style of clothes. No one is unique at all, and the fact that they tease girls with natural beauty is worse :mad:
    You're lucky :(

    In France, people put more emphasize on style, overall appearance and personality. We also have a term to describe someone that isn't conventionally pretty but is considered attractive we call it "Jolie laide" (basically ugly pretty) and it's used mostly to describe tall, slender, stylish and ethereal looking women like most runaway models.

    It really is, majority of our people are really dark skinned so I dont understand why we beat ourselves up for our skin color.
    For me only my little sister is really light skinned compared to the rest of my family who are dark skinned :) Its different for her since she only gets comments on her skin color being too light :*(
    I wish all people could embrace their natural looks.
