Meet Brianna DeBoise, a California-based curly educational recruiter for a makeup and beauty school.

NC: What are your favorite hairstyles to wear with your curls?

BD: Most of the time I wear it down. I have one side shaved off, so it's hard to have a different style, but sometimes I will wear it up in a small bun.

NC: What reaction did you get when you first decided to go natural?

BD: I have gotten compliments on my curls since I was a little girl, but I didn't get it until they were gone. People that I met in the time that my hair had the Brazilian in it are shocked at my curls now. They can't believe I would try to get rid of them in the first place!

NC: Did you big chop or transition and for how long? If you've always been natural, did you ever have any curly girl insecurities?

BD: I am a bi-racial child and my mother tried everything to relax my hair or find the right product and since their wasn't a large selection of curly products out then like there are now, we just didn't know what to do! I have some crazy hair school pictures.
