Street View is a fashion series in which Isa Giallorenzo spotlights some of the coolest styles seen in Chicago.

The ‘fro is a win-win: it takes Amara considerably less work to maintain than her previously straightened locks, yet the do gets at least four compliments a day. All she does is wash it about once a week and use Lush’s R&B leave-in conditioner, which makes her hair feel as soft and light as a cloud. Amara went natural three years ago, and she’s not looking back; she decided it was time to embrace her individuality and stop wasting time in salons. Check out more of her looks on Instagram under the apropos handle @fro_god.
