Also called a fro is a hair style worn by African-Americans, old ladies and sometimes white dudes attempt to grow an Afro but instead it turns out to be more of a jewfro. This hair style was popular in the 70's & 80's worn by celebrities such as Michael Jackson and the other members of the Jackson 5 (Tito, Marlen, Jackie & Jermone). It is still popular worn by some modern celebrities like Redfoo and Avery Martinez II (but he recently cut his hair) who is admin of 'Guy with An Afro' page which makes him Facebook famous. An Afro is curly and round all around. An Afro pick or tooth pick comb is used to comb the curly hair into an Afro or used to stick in the Afro. A lot of stuff can be stuck and hidden in an Afro. Like pencils and condoms. The ladies love the fros so dude's with the fros sometimes stick condoms in their hair just in case they get lucky.
Dude, check out that guy's Afro, he looks like one of those guys from the 80's movies.

Look at that fly mofo with the kick-ass Afro.

Grannies shouldn't ask hairdressers for an Afro hairstyle...that's like old dudes (who still have hair) asking hairdressers to braid their hair like Snoop Dogg.
