IRMN Exclusive: Introducing Being Ebony

I would love to introduce you to my curlfriend and real life homie BeingEbony. Not only is she a gorgeous Natural woman but also an Amazing make up artist as well as a Beauty/Lifestyle Youtube Vlogger. I am starting a new segment on IRMN entitled ” Ask Ebony” where you can ask make up questions/advice and she will answer with her beauty expertise. But first lets find out a little more about her.
 
 Tell me a little about yourself.
My name is Ebony (On social media, I go by beingebony) and I’m 28 years old. I currently work as an Early Childhood Teacher and live in Houston, Texas. I’m originally from St. Louis, Missouri and have been natural since January 2008…

What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
Some ex friends of mine (ALL tea and shade) suggested I cut my hair into a short Afro and wear it curly. I had been natural for years but was wearing my natural hair under wigs and weave, so I just chopped it all off.
What are your current hair goals?
Honestly, I’m too fickle to have “hair goals”… I kind of want to grow my hair out, cut it all off, and loc it up all at the same time. I wouldn’t mind coloring it, either.

Do you have a name for your hair or If you had to give your hair a name what would it be?
I refer to my hair using feminine pronouns so, probably Traci… She sounds like a cute girl with (sometimes) questionable taste… Cuz sometimes Traci be all f*@%ed up… LOL

If your hair is colored what do you use to do so?
 No but I’m up for a challenge… Maybe chartreuse???
Sum up your natural hair journey in three words.
 Frustrating, interesting, and the best thing I ever did… Oops, I cheated 😉
Any advice to the natural newbies?
 Don’t get caught up on hair typing and texture… Just do what you want!

When it’s ugly tons of people tell me how cute it is… I also get a lot of compliments on my hair accessories… like my flower crowns I make myself…
