introduce yourself

Hi there! My name is Gina aka Belle, I am founder of naturalbelle a hair blog that started as a documentation of my own hair journey and has snowballed, grown and created a life of it’s own all in all I compile images of natural haired fierce women and put them all in one place. I work in the hairdressing industry and I’m fanatical about hair and fashion and popular culture. I’m a creative person who has found her tiny little niche in the natural hair community, which is growing by the blog! I hope my blog helps black women (and men) accept different kinds of beauty in the black community.

who and what inspires you?

My followers on naturalbelle inspire me everyday. The internet is a very inspiring place I get inspired by YouTube video’s I’m sent and the images I would be able to pick anyone person or any one thing.

icons past & present

Tina turner and Etta James for being two of the first black rock and roll divas.

Josephine baker for being a pioneer and lastly Amber Rose- just purely to look at – I marvel at her style and boldness.

the nublack philosophy/mantra according to Gina Knight

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”
