CC’s Beauty Institute w/ Consquilla Carey
I toggled back and forth on whether I should release this episode or not, but I'm glad that I did. This episode is not about natural hair but about a black woman that stayed committed to her desire of becoming a beauty educator and opening her own school.
By being in the beauty school space I wanted to share with you an African American woman who defeated the odds and pushed past obstacles to get exactly what she wanted.
Check out the full episode! We are now on Youtube!
