Newsweek: How Women of Color are Using Natural Hair to Change Mainstream Perceptions of Beauty

Newsweek: How Women of Color are Using Natural Hair to Change Mainstream Perceptions of Beauty

Our co-founders, Lindsey Day and Nkrumah Farrar, were recently invited by Newsweek to take part in a conversation about how Black women are shifting mainstream standards of beauty — simply by embracing the hair that naturally grows out of our heads. The feature also includes the voices of model Jourdana Phillips, actress and The Real talk show co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley and Riverdale star Asha Bromfield who have had to deal with the pressure of conforming to what other people believe is beautiful. Thank you to Jessica Durham and the Newsweek team!
