ELLE Canada Pays Tribute To Natural Black Hair


ELLE’s September issue, the highly anticipated annual bible of beauty and fashion, features black models in a tribute to black hair.

The “Natural Anthem” beauty shoot showcases six women of color rocking a collection of natural styles including afro puffs, sculpted baby hair and braids. The six models hail from Kenya, Burundi, and Canada. One of them was even discovered at a Beyonce concert in Toronto. In the article the models discuss what it was like being a part of the shoot, favorite hair care products, their day-to-day makeup routines, the relationships they have with their hair and their own treasured beauty icons.

The magazine’s beauty director, Vanessa Craft posted the following to her Instagram account:


“I’ve never been in a photo shoot where it’s all black people. Usually there is one black person and seven Caucasian women. We all come from different backgrounds and we can share stories together. And I kind of feel at peace because at other shoots, nobody would talk to each other,” Aliisa says.

“My sister is a hairdresser. I started with braids. My mom wouldn’t let me wear a weave because she said it would be too grown-up for me. Grade 5 graduation was the only time I could wear one; it was a clip-on ponytail. In Grade 8, I got to wear a long weave. I loved it! I would get it sewn in. But I would have to straighten it and comb it out, or brush it out. In high school, I started wearing all natural. [Wearing a weave] is too much time. You have to maintain it,” she added.


Major props to ELLE Canada for showing love to these gorgeous hairstyles and the black women who wear them better than anyone else ever could. Remember who STARTED this ish lol

The September issue is available on newsstands now.

Are you TUNED IN???

Ive been smitten lately with these Youtubers and the great content they showcase. Everything From Black Love to Everyday Life is what you can assure youll get when in tune into Yolanda Renee and MsVaughnTV channels. Both ladies are the typical “Girl Next Door” with a dash of “Around the Way Girl” such as myself. But after consideration maybe Vaughn is the “Girl Next Door” and Yolanda is the “Around the Way Girl ” either way i see apart of me in them and i can totally relate to the content. Both channels chronicles the lives of hardworking women with their familes in the everyday world not glitz and glam but raw uncut natural REALNESS…..

MsVaughnTV shares her journey as a Newlywed , Expecting mom , Marketing Maven , and Natural Youtuber with a flare for Bohemian Fashion. I totally can relate to Vaughn on so many levels because i too love bohemian fashion , am a naturalista and soon to Youtuber. We as viewers are attracted to whats quality content in our eyes and whats more your rate as far as similarities. She’s that Chicago chick who speaks her mind but not ratchet very classy and eloquent. I’ve enjoyed following her journey on YouTube and was very please with the Vlog Series “My Life Offline” and now her very own Vlog on her channel titled ” My Real Life”
Are you TUNED IN?

Meet The Becks – Devon , Yolanda , Taylor and Skylar is the YouTube version of The Cosbys. Its like watching a real good family oriented show that you just dont want to stop but you can’t wait to see the next episode. I was so excited to see Black Family Love on YouTube…..Its so inspiring and reassures me of my main goal to wait for love before I start a family. Taylor and Sky sends my ovaries into over drive. Sky is all Devon and Taylor is all Yolanda – One of Each. They show us recipes , natural hair tutorials , family time etc. Taylor loves helping cook and Skylar sings. Devon and Yolanda are raising great respectful young girls. Devon hasnt appeared much on camera but when he does you can feel the love him amd Yolanda share thru the camera. Are you TUNED IN?
