Defining Beauty_The Platform

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.
