Farouk James has what every girl wishes for: long, luscious hair. The boy’s impressive mane has become his trademark, helping him break into the modeling industry.
In London, he was born to a Ghanaian father and Bonnie.
While his hair has been a blessing since he was born at the age of six months, he recently made headlines when it was revealed that his mother, Bonnie Miller, was denied admittance for her son by two UK schools due to his long natural hair.
As his hair grew longer and longer, Bonnie was pressured to get Farouk a haircut as the only way for him on the scene, but she never gave up, and in a few years, Farouk’s hair became sought-after in the industry.
Farouk James hopes that his impressive hairstyle will send a message to other children that they should accept themselves for who they are.
Farouk James would never cut his hair short for anything. It’s a part of his identity for him! Bonnie, his mother, is very proud of him and encourages him to be himself.
The boy is now well-known on Instagram, where his account has over 239,000 followers, and he is also well-known in the fashion world.
His mother encourages him to keep his beautiful hair, which he has allowed to grow out since birth. He rose to fame, and the young boy now uses the internet to spread his message of self-acceptance.
