There are lots of barometers when it comes to measuring acceptance of curls, coils and waves. Fashion Week, the Oscar’s and reality TV are some of mind.

American Idol, a show that has probably past its prime, but always reels me in anyway. This season, it could be called Curly Idol. Of the top 15, several female contestants rock amazing texture.

Of course, as always, the true test is if they’re still sporting those beautiful ringlets and kinks by season’s end or whether they get Idol’s usual generic makeovers (think Jordan Sparks, Jennifer Hudon and Carrie Underwood).
