Several months back we did a photo shoot with Ms. Ciara Mariah Anderson. I first learned about Ciara from fellow photographer Elroy Johnson who had photographed Ciara for The Dallas Weekly. Ciara was featured as one of the twenty millennials to watch in Dallas and from this photo shoot you can see why.
Ciaria Anderson, hair guru, natural hair evangelist and social media heavy weight has brought thousands to the fold of natural hair care. This twenty something has definitely made her mark as one of the top vloggers for beauty and hair care in the country.
Black confidence is growing and I'm very excited! Black women are starting to realize they are beautiful. From are darker skin tones to are curly/kinky hair. Our brothers are also starting to embrace are natural features more. I started embracing my natural features two years ago after I was diagnosed with traction alopecia from wearing to many sew in weaves and not taking care of my hair the proper way. Without my weave I didn't feel beautiful. I was a slave to some of society's idea of beautiful. Long straight hair. After my hair grew back I got a cute tapered cut and fell in love. After months of hiding my damaged hair under wigs I felt free! After I cut my hair and fell in love with my natural hair and look. I created my YouTube channel, aiming to inspire and teach other naturals how to style and care for their hair. My hair journey hasn't just been about hair it's built my self esteem and it's helped me love myself. My goal is to spread confidence and love, so young black girls and women can feel beautiful as they are. We don't have to conform to European standards we were meant to be different and that different is beautiful! If you guys can include my handles that would be great! - Ciara Andrson
