Curly girls, listen up. If your current selection of straight-haired emojis has you feeling left out, fear no more. Dove’s latest emojis are about to seriously change your texting game — and to make life easier for our fave curly-haired celebs — Rachelle Lefevre, Solange, North West (of course) and Zendaya, we picked their perfect emoji match to get them in the game immediately.

Taco emojis are great and all, but our keyboards are still coming up short when it comes to hair types — and after diverse skin tones were added, our hopes were high. And though Apple let us down, Dove is here to save the day with the launch of their new Love Your Curls emojis, which they launched to support to their Love Your Curls Mission.
According to Dove’s research, 82 percent of curly-haired women say they would like to see more female emoji options depicting what their hair looks like … so they solved their problem. Instead of waiting for Unicode to add to their keyboard, the company created their own keyboard with many types of tresses represented.
The set of curly-haired emojis represents everything from wavy to kinky types, ranging from blonde to dark brown hair, with a variety of skin tones (and even a baby!). This way, no curl goes unnoticed.
You can download Dove’s curl-friendly keyboard for free in the App Store or Google Play. And, if you use the hashtag #LoveYourCurls on Twitter (until January), a curly-haired emoji will automatically appear. Talk about spreading the love!
