LAHORE - A black Burberry model claims that hairstylists often have no clue as to how to go about an afro. This happened to model Olivia Anakwe, who took to Instagram to voice her troubles backstage at Paris Fashion Week.

"I was asked to get out of an empty chair followed by having hairstylists blatantly turning their backs to me when I would walk up to them, to get my hair done," she wrote, captioning two videos of black stylists tending to her hair backstage.

"I arrived backstage where they planned to do cornrows, but not one person on the team knew how to do them without admitting so," she recalled. "After one lady attempted and pulled my edges relentlessly, I stood up to find a model who could possibly do it. After asking two models and then the lead/only nail stylist, she was then taken away from her job to do my hair. This is not okay. This will never be okay. This needs to change."

Unfair, surely yes!
