'a hairstyle characterized by long and bushy locks' This hairstyle was developed in the USA in the early 3 after-ski 19708 and exported to Western Europe (and elsewhere). The short form Afro is the only one found in English (and this could be the source of French, Romanian, and Finnish borrowings); the distribution of the long form (German, Dutch, Italian, Croatian) points to borrowing from American English rather than a new coinage—although look is frequently used to form compounds.

This word has been adopted as a more fashionable synonym. Existing native equivalents were therefore not prompted by English.

As a fashionable (and rather superfluous) synonym its status and future appear to be still in doubt in the languages that record the modernism.
