These Twins Were Ashamed Of Their Hair. Now They Own It!

It always makes me happy to see people who were once in bad places making names for themselves and becoming more confident. That’s a big part of Cipriana Quann and TK Wonder’s story – they’re identical twins who once were embarrassed by their natural hair. Eventually, they stopped straightening it and let it grow out. Here’s what happened.

Before And After!

When they were models, they thought their natural hair was getting in the way of success. They were likely asked to straighten it, and that must have taken a great deal of time. After a while, they stopped modelling and let their hair go natural.

Nowadays, they’re getting a lot of attention on Instagram for their gorgeous hair. Both have more than 100 thousand followers! Here’s Cipriana’s account and here’s TK’s account.

Encouraging Confidence And Saying No To Stereotypes

These two, along with Nikisha Brunson, run the Facebook page Urban Bush Babes. Their mission is to break down the stereotypes surrounding natural hair, and to help people feel more confident going without a straightening iron. How inspirational is that?

I think the lesson that we can learn from these two is that there’s no shame in being confident with your natural looks. Whether your hair’s straight, curly, in an afro, or in dreadlocks, you’re free to do whatever you want with it. You don’t have to conform to society’s standards of beauty to be beautiful.
