Welcome to The Platform’s Defining Beauty, a 6 part series where women of color are given a forum to discuss ethnic beauty, natural hair, and redefining today’s beauty standards. Defining Beauty brings together beauty vloggers, natural hair mavens, and a collective voice reflecting the struggles to define, personify, and embrace their natural beauty and natural hair. These voices include many of our favorite beauty girls Taren Guy, HeyFranHey, Nik Scott, ShamelessMaya, Naptural85, and Jouelzy! From natural hair products, makeup for ethnic women, to natural hairstyle tutorials these women are leaders within a community of women re-defining beauty. While centered around ethnic beauty, Defining Beauty touches on issues and gives advice on topics facing women of all shades, shapes, and backgrounds such as body image, hairstyles, makeup, self esteem, and more. Natural beauty is multifaceted as it comes from within, and it is not solely physical. You are more than your beauty. Trust your talent, chase your dreams, and believe in yourself.

My favorite episode is 6 — helping the next generation define and own their beauty NOW… I was getting a little disconcerted with the whoa-is-me.. when I was gorwing up stories, but I wanted the ladies to empower the generation of NOW. I don’t want to deter young ladies watching this video, that tumultuous times are a part of of journey — and it doesn’t have to be! We all have our our journey, and you don’t have to be dragged in your confidence growing up to accept your beauty.
I overall enjoyed watching these beautiful ladies… like… they are striking and astute! Reaffirms why My Black In Beautiful! – Sab
