    Winnie Harlow wanted "white girl hair" at the start of her career

    The 27-year-old model is of Jamaican ancestry and has recalled wanting to have "white" hair during her younger years


    Winnie - who was diagnosed with the skin condition vitiligo as a child -

    shared: "I wish I had known that there wasn't a lot of people behind the scenes who know how to deal with black hair, I wish I knew how to deal with that before going into the fashion industry.

    "I remember feeling I don't wanna be white but I wish I had white girl hair because I wanna look just as good as the white girls do and I should be able to because no matter what race you're beautiful.

    "Why is it that all the white girls hair looks bomb? And all the black girls don't look as good, it's because there's no education with black hair and different textures. I wish I had known that."

    Winnie feels the fashion industry has changed markedly over the last decade.

    However, she still thinks there's some "room for growth".

    Speaking to the 'Behind Closed Doors' podcast, the model shared: "I came into the industry at a time where there was no one that looked like me or similar to what I look like.

    "It's definitely changed a lot - I've seen people who have more unique looks or not the cookie cutter look. There's beauty in so many different ranges of people.

    "There's definitely room for growth. I feel like there times that's still performative and it's not like an ongoing thing. A lot of brands are really good at being inclusive and every few years designers change."
