Braids at the Met Gala Ft Nana Agyemang of EveryStylishGirl

If you haven’t heard of Nana Agyemang yet, prepare to be blessed. Over the past four years, this powerhouse has taken on the world of beauty and fashion editorial like no other! She’s reported for publications like the NYTimes, BBC, Elle & Refinery29. Today, Nana not only works as a social media editor for NY Mag's The Cut, but also runs her own media platform called EveryStylishGirl, specifically catered to young women of color. Growing up as a first generation Ghanaian-American in Ohio, Nana often felt like an outsider. But that didn’t stop her. After joining yearbook club, Agyemang realized that media was the outlet she needed to express both the beauty and struggle of being a young black girl. From there, her editorial empire was born and continues to move the industry forward. Tune in to hear us chat about her career highlights, finding the best protective styles, and the magic of brown lip liner!  Links to Products/Resources Mentioned: - SKIN: Dr. Sturm Darker Skin Tone Line & Clarifying Line, Aztec Clay, Dr. Elena Jones, Dr. Eva Kerby, ZitSticka, Starface, Go-To Fancy Face MAKEUP: Charlotte Tilbury (Foxy Brown), NYX Lip Liner, Vanessa Gyimah, MAC Brow Pencil, MAC NW48 Foundation HAIR: Afful Crown Wigs, Got2b Glue, HeatFree Hair Clip-Ins, The Hair Artiste Join the Naked Beauty Community on IG: @nakedbeautyplanet  Rate, Subscribe & Review the Podcast on Apple  Thanks for all the love and support.
