Black Girl Fly Mag's Favorite Natural Hair of 2014
Kinky. Wavy. Coily. Whatever the hair texture, length, or density, we all watched and admire those who sported envious curls. Here is BGF’s top faves:
Blake VonD . This blonde bombshell makes the twa look effortless. Her fade is flawless and the color remains vibrant and rich. I salute you and your black girl flyness.
Nneka I. Wow. Curls? Check. Volume? Check. Who doesn’t love big hair? Hair crush is an understatement. Her natural beauty is an inspiration.
Natural Neiicey! Not only do I love her instagram but I deeply enjoy her youtube channel. Her hair always has shine and following her hair story leaves any beginning naturalistas feeling that they can achieve her length and health.
Naptural85. One of the first naturalistas to vlog her natural hair journey . Complete with tutorials and informative product reviews/regimens . Naptural85 continues to be a staple in the natural hair community.
Last but not least: Tracee Ellis Ross and Solange Knowles- Ferguson have become natural hair royalty. Whether it’s chic , sporty, or any combination of the two. Tracee and Solange have remained on top as they inspire hair envy and self love amongst the natural hair community. We can not wait to see what these beautifully maned loves have in store for 2015.
