“When I began my journey to creating 1940s/1950s hairstyles using my naturally kinky/curly hair texture, I found NOTHING! There were no inspiration photos, no hair tutorials for vintage hairstyles for natural hair, NOTHING! Often times Black chose to chemically straighten their hair during these earlier decades in order to make their appearance more acceptable…that’s a whole other topic. As a result, I decided to just create my own styles, and still do so today. Over the years, since I had begun posting videos, I have seen quite a few hair tutorials pop up with pinup inspired hairstyles using natural textures.”
