For over a decade, YouTube has been one of the social media platforms dominating the internet. Because of YouTube, people are able to share their opinions on a variety of topics, find tutorials for DIY projects, makeup and hair videos, and everything in between.
YouTube has allowed Black women to create spaces that showcase how to care for natural hair, braids, and extensions. The platform has also created a space for us to learn how to braid, install wigs, do twist outs, and style our hair.
Popular creators like Jackie Aina and Kellie Sweet have been successful in paving the way for other Black women to create content. If you’re looking for more inspiring creatives to support, here are some of the YouTube channels we are currently loving:
