A Great Month for For Beauty!

Surprisingly, these past few weeks have been a great few weeks in media in terms of beauty and self image. Especially for brown girls all over the world and of all ages. Check out the Sesame Street Video (above) "I Love My Hair".

And of coarse the music video for the hit single "Whip My Hair" by Willow Smith was released. Willow reminds us to work "whip" what you've got!
