With over a million subscribers and an incredible influence over all social media, Mahogany Curls has set herself apart as one of the top natural hair YouTube vloggers. But to some of us who’ve followed her for years now, from the time way back in 2008 she did her big chop, to her second child a few months back, she’s just Jessica Lewis. Kinda like that gorgeous, cool girlfriend next door whose curls are always fresh and fly.
A proud military wife, mom of 2, and an outspoken brand ambassador for Shea Moisture, Jessica is the quintessential naturalista. Through her stylish, elegant, and packed with tips YouTube tutorials, Mahogany Curls inspires us to live our best naturalista lives.
From sharing styling tutorials and natural hair and beauty tips on her YouTube channel, to guest-blogging for Essence magazine and representing Shea Moisture, to more recently introducing us to her new lifestyle channel, Lewis, Love and Family, Mahogany Curls is a natural force to be reckoned with.
When asked what distinguishes her from other natural hair bloggers/ brands, she share this piece of advice that just gives us life:
“I compete with myself. I don’t know what the next person did…or what they’re doing behind the scenes. For me, there’s only me. Be sure to push yourself to see how you can be better. When you do that, you’re concentrating on yourself versus others. Having confidence in yourself is key to success.”
Go on, girl!
