More than 2400 votes were tallied and in the end Crystal, who was featured in October, is BGLH’s Style Icon of the Year. Of her hair journey she said:
After looking up tons of natural hair pictures on the internet and watching Youtube videos, my perception of beauty started changing. I realized that there wasn’t just one look (Kim Kardashian look) that meant that you were extremely stunning. Natural hair began to look appealing to me and I wanted to see what I looked like with my natural texture.
As I was doing research about natural hair I started paying more attention to the content of what the women were talking about and not just their hair. I realized that hair health was something of great importance for growing out long natural hair. I was in my second year of college when I decided to do the BC and I was ready to come into my own look.
