Two identical twin sisters, Cipriana Quann and TK Wonder, have become really famous for their long hair, a feature one of them said she initially hated.

Cipriana said that she saw it as a big obstacle. According to WASBST, the duo had been quiet about the unique feature until when it made them really successful.
“I was beginning to actually hate my hair and seeing it as a huge obstacle,” Cipriana said.
The twin sisters embraced their natural hair, gave it constant straightening as they turned into wild locks.
That singular act has made them very famous with a huge following on Instagram. They are also the curator of a popular lifestyle blog called Urban Bush Babes.
Little wonder, therefore, they have been made the ambassadors of natural hair. TK Wonder once spoke about how it was a shameful act for people to wear their natural hair.
“I think it came to a point where it was derogatory toward people who wore their hair natural, and there was a certain stigma around people who wore their hair natural or in an afro,” TK Wonder said.
She said what they are doing is about breaking the stereotypes that come with the act. The same media reports that the girls have been really confident since they started wearing their natural hairs without the fear of stigma.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that top American singer, Rihanna, is going simple this year as she posted her first selfie this year on Monday, January 6. In the picture, the 31-year-old fashion enthusiast smiles shyly at the camera as light bounces off her lips.
Her skin is denuded of makeup as she wears cornrows. She also has studs on her ears and a simple neck chain.
One of her followers in a way to bring her down said that “let me pop your pimple” and she jokingly replied with “let her have her shine, PLEASE”.
