Cipriana: My frustration with the modeling industry in 2011 my hair was always an issue I was constantly being told to straighten it or mimic some stereotypical standard like waves or coiled curls something didn’t seem right about that standard.
Cosmo: You reach more than half 1 million women on the site and on social what is your secret to your success?
Cipriana: I think people recognize we are about more than just fashion and hair. For us, it’s about promoting self love to feel confident in being who you want to be, despite the judgments of others. That resonates with those looking for a deeper connection.
Cosmo: What’s the best part about working together?
TK: The content surrounding women of color really resonate with people. We are firm believers that the all American beauty is no longer this perpetuated ideology of being blonde and blue eyed. America is diverse…so is the all American beauty.
