Hi all in today’s feature of “Behind The YouTube Natural Hair Vlogger”, I am excited to bring to you beautiful Karry Of SimplyBeautiful1913…Enjoy♥
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is Karry. My YouTube name is simplybeautiful1913. I am a recent college graduate who majored in business & marketing. I love fashion, I love to cook, and I love to travel. I also make jewelry which I sell locally but I have plans on putting it online soon, I do jewelry repairs as well.
What or who inspired you to start a YouTube Channel?
My friends and random people inspired me to start a YouTube Channel. People kept coming up to me asking who was doing my hair, I would say I did and then they would ask me how, so I decided why not document the styles i’m doing so everyone can do them!
Describe your Channel?
My channel is about how to maintain healthy hair, whether transitioning or just wanting to try new natural hairstyles. I also have been dabbling into to makeup but most of the products I use are affordable so the everyday person can buy them.
How long have you been on YouTube?
I have had an account for the longest but I only started uploading videos about two months ago.
What camera and software editing tools do you use?
I use the Sony HD Handy Cam, and I edit with iMovie on a Mac
Where do you get your inspiration for your videos?
I look at magazine pictures, natural hair websites, different YouTubers and past styles that I have done.
What is the most frustrating thing about being a YouTube Vlogger?
Editing! Lol sometimes I can be very particular about what I want so it can take forever sometimes.
What is the best thing about being a YouTube Vlogger?
Getting my information out to people who need it and being able to help someone with the growth/health of their hair.
How do you balance time between your personal life and YouTube schedule?
I try to film videos during the day while I am at home and upload on Sundays because that is when I have the most downtime.
Have you met any of your viewers in real life?
Only my friends who frequently watch, but that would be really awesome!
Do you have any interesting story to tell about your YouTube life and real life crossing paths?
No sorry I don’t
Please mention one video that you have made that is your favorite, and why?
My favorite video is the one about how to grow natural hair. Just a few tips can change the growth and length retention. It all starts with the products though.
How long have you been Natural? Describe your Hair Journey.
I have been natural all my life, but I used to use heat on it frequently. Once I got to college I experienced breakage in my ends and always had to get lot trimmed off, so I decided to stop flat ironing and keep my hair in its natural state.
What Is Your Hair Regimen and Favorite Products?
My hair regimen consists of washing in 4 two strand twists, detangling, and deep condition, moisturize and seal and then styling my hair. I wash at least every 7-10 days if I don’t have two strand twists.
My favorite products are:
- luvNaturals Wash Me Gently Hair & Scalp Cleanser (Kimmaytube)
- Curls Coconut Curlada Conditioner
- Nubian heritage edge taming taffy
- Coconut oil
- Whipped Shea butter My tutorial can be found here: Homemade Whipped Shea Butter
What is your favorite Natural Hair Style?
Flat twisted side bun, pretty much anything with a flat twist in it lol
What is the best thing about being Natural?
Being able to do anything with the hair, it’s so versatile and easy to change things up if you want.
What is the most frustrating thing about being Natural?
For me it’s detangling…sometimes it can be very hard to keep it detangled when trying to do smaller twists or flat twists.
What advice do you have to those who are newly natural or are considering going natural?
My advice would be to go to target or online to see what type of products are available for transitioners or natural hair. Check out YouTube channels of people’s journey when they became natural and try to read different blogs like Curly Nikki on the ways to be natural.

Have great lighting, not a lot of distractions in the background, smile, and try to reach out to other gurus to see if they would support you. Go for it!
