The curly girl/natural hair movement is literally becoming a worldwide movement of men and women of all ages, races, ethnicities, and hair types embracing their natural hair, beauty, and body. Miss Mikayla G. hails from Canada, where she creates YouTube videos that are both entertaining and informational, based on her love of helping others with hair, beauty, and fashion.
Briefly introduce yourself.
Hello! I'm Mikayla and I'm a Canadian Beauty Vlogger on YouTube as well as a Broadcast and Media Communications student in Vancouver.
I started wearing my hair more natural during high school. My hair is very thick and pretty wavy so I just found it easier to deal with when it's natural. Straightening or curling my hair was always such a task. I have gotten much better at curling my hair and have a solid routine now that takes less than 15 minutes.
What do you love (and hate) about your hair?
I always get complimented on my hair being so long, which I love. I also have a love-hate relationship with how thick my hair is. Sometimes it's a good thing and sometimes it's just too much to handle.
The only challenge I have with my hair during school is having it in my face. I grew out my bangs a lot of time because I just found them way too annoying. At school I usually have my hair in a ponytail or a bun just to keep it off my face.
What is your favorite go-to hairstyle for a busy day at school?
My favourite way to wear my hair on a busy day would probably be a curled ponytail, just because it looks a bit nicer. Although on busy days you'll most likely find my hair in a bun.
What about a night out?For a night out, I will usually just curl my hair normally in big, loose curls. I like to pin back the sides or do a half-up half-down style. Again, I really don't like having my hair in my face!
What products are you obsessing over right now?I have always loved the Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum, it's my Holy Grail Product. I also like to use the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner because it makes my hair feel incredibly soft whenever I get out of the shower.
What are your passions... What inspires you?
I have quite a few passions in my life at the moment. Dance used to be a big one but now I would have to say YouTube. Making beauty and fashion videos is one of my biggest hobbies and I'm lucky enough to call it a job, too. I get inspiration for my videos from other YouTubers as well as the people who watch and comment on my videos.
