These Twin Sisters Were Ashamed Of Their Incredible Hair, But Now They Became Famous For It

Meet identical twins Cipriana Quann and TK Wonder – the girls that make heads turn when they walk the streets.

A while ago, the now fashion models hated their luscious hair: “I was beginning to actually hate my hair and seeing it as a huge obstacle,” Cipriana said. But as time passed, they decided to stop straightening it, and start embracing it. Which eventually led the photo models to be recognized as the queens of natural hair, bringing Instagram envy all around the world.

But the sisters aren’t just pretty faces… Along with their friend Nikisha Brunson, they’re also the girls behind the natural hair blog “Urban Bush Babes.” “I think it came to a point where it was derogatory toward people who wore their natural hairstyles, and there was a certain stigma around people who wore their hair natural or in an afro,” TK Wonder said. “It was about breaking down stereotypes and derogatory perceptions that people had about natural hair.” Now, whatever the twins do, they do it with ambition, confidence, passion, and, of course, great hair.

I like the look, it's stunning. But wondering the same thing: how heavy it is and how to wash it?

I used to have my hair like that as a little kid, not as long. Trust me, it's ridiculously HARD but very worth it, because cultural roots.

Their hair is beautiful. I don't know where the stigma came from, but like most stigmas, I find it absurd. Flaunt your locks, ladies!

:( Unfortunately it's part of the oppression of African Americans, probably in most white countries, but definitely especially in the US.
