Defying Disability and Defining Dreams

“I grew up always wanting to model and act, but I was always told it wouldn’t be an avenue for me.” Women of color find that brands haven’t always taken the initiative to represent them and their dollar when it comes to marketing and promoting their products. It always seems to be more of a hassle, and now that we’ve become more visible in marketing and branding, the only place we can go from here is up. Our Funky Junky Feature for this month is one of those women. Tatiana is a gorgeous, thriving model and actress living the life Read More

When Life Gives You Flowers, Put Them In Your Hair!

Being a woman in this day and age requires a lot of internal strength. Women are required to know themselves, know the world and know that beauty is coveted but not required. Since Uncle Funky’s Daughter is part of the booming beauty industry, we often focus on the external entities of beauty, and work to empower women from the outside in. Embracing our natural hair is one of the things that help us exude confidence in who we really are. We’d say blogger, Kayla Janelle would agree. “What do I love about being a woman? Everything,” she said. “We are Read More

Thank God for Growth: Nicole’s Natural Hair Journey

When we look at throwback photos of us from high school, or they pull themselves to the top of our Facebook feeds (most times to our dismay), we often get a jolt of memories. Do you remember your first driver’s license photo? Did you have braces or acne or relaxed hair? Most importantly… have you transformed since then? We all take a look back at who we used to be, how we used to look, and are grateful for change. Our funky feature for this month, Nicole sure is, and she even uses that driver’s license photo as a benchmark Read More

Natasha Howard: Fit, Fab and Forever Funky

Life is full of multi-tasking, roles and duties, but it’s also full of opportunities — to better ourselves, work hard and establish things in this world we are passionate about. Sometimes, those opportunities don’t have much to do with one another, but each helps to build a uniqueness about us . That’s proven to be true with our awesome (and well-rounded, might we add), Brand Ambassador, Natasha Howard (aka @longlibralegz on Instagram). Between being a long-time basketball fanatic, model and business professional, Natasha is agreeably a jack of all trades. “I am employed with Frito Lay where I am a Read More

Ten Celebs Who Slayed Natural Hair in 2017

Natural hair had a serious and fabulous elevation this year! This was a year full of creativity, inclusivity and natural beauty overall.

This year, Black women showed the the entire world that our hair is more beautiful than how it was previously perceived, and our pride is growing more widely Every.Single.Day.
