I wouldnt advise it

I had my afro out at my old companies Christmas party, lol wasnt intended just that my ex girl flopped me so I had no choice.

was all well and good but then once the drinks started flowing I had several drunken incidents including being referenced to 'someone they saw on crime watch' and other general tasteless white jokes.

In conclusion an afro will draw attention, and I hate drawing attention to myself
