10 Hair and Beauty YouTube Gurus Every Brown Girl Should Know

Christmas is Tomorrow! Luckily, this means may of us get to spend time with our loved ones and finally get a break from school/work. Though the holiday season may provide us with some much needed R&R, it may also leave us a little strapped for cash. With events to attend and waning funds YouTube Tutorials may be just what the doctor ordered.

Some of you may not be attending any soirees or functions that call for a new look. To you I say “Girl, treat yourself.” Take this time to perfect that winged eyeliner or finally learn how to properly care for your kinky curls. Yes there are copious amounts of Pinterest boards and magazines that feature beauty tips, but I find YouTube to have the largest/easiest to follow index of beauty tips for the brown girl. 

Remember, YouTube allows you to subscribe to and favorite videos so that you can easily come back to the channels/specific videos that you find useful. I advise tweaking the things you learn to suit your specific needs and finding “Dupe” or duplicate products that may be more affordable. 

This list doesn’t give full information on each Guru, so its up to you to click through the links provided to see what they’re all about.
