If you’ve been paying close attention to BGLH, you might have noticed that a few weeks ago we created a “Best Dressed” tag and started populating it with some of the most stylish women we’ve featured. You might have also noticed that the Best Dressed tag has a different background color than the rest of the site.
That’s because it’s what we’re referring to as a ‘blog within a blog’, a segment of BGLH that focuses on personal style. And it’s officially launching today.
We know that BGLH is a hair site, and you come here for natural hair inspiration, photos and hair care. But we also noticed that there is a growing contingent of you who are style obsessed. Who leave comments like, “Forget her hair. That girl’s style is dope!”
And we feel you on that. Ever so often we will get a style icon whose personal look is so killer, so ridiculously fierce that we forget about the hair for a second, while we marvel at the unique color combo and the perfect cut and fit of her digs. And we want to celebrate that.
So what does it mean for the rest of you. Those who aren’t here for style posts. It means absolutely nothing. We will still update BGLH with the same amount and quality of hair care information. And any woman we feature for BGLH Style will also answer a robust set of questions about her hair care regimen. BGLH is NOT turning into a style blog. It’s a hair blog with a style contingent.
We’re really excited to take this step into something new and fresh. We love to celebrate black women for the many reasons they are awesome — their hair, their intelligence, their vibrance and, of course, their style.
