Reg & Bri
Whether they are a micro-influencer who has a fresh approach to caring for natural hair, or a sage vlogger who we’ve watched grow up online, beauty bloggers give us a new perspective on our beauty routine. While social media is full of those looking to be Insta-famous, there are a select few who rise above the pack. Get to know our latest pick for must-follow hair and beauty slay.
HYPE HAIR: When and how did you get started in blogging/vlogging?
BRI: We started vlogging in February 2017. I had my own channel before then and wanted to include Reggie on the videos. Our first video together was on my channel, and it was the boyfriend tag. At first, Reggie was hesitant because, ironically, he did not like doing things in front of the camera. However, after making a couple of videos, he slowly started to enjoy doing them together, and now we have our own successful YouTube channel.
HH: What was your career before you took this path?
BRI: I was in my sophomore year of college at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, pursuing a degree in broadcast journalism. Go Gamecocks!
REG: I was in my sophomore year of college at Benedict College, an HBCU in Columbia, pursuing a degree in business.
HH: How would you describe your signature style?
REG & BRI: Our signature style on YouTube is relaxed, sit-down style videos, we are working on branching out to vlogging while on the go.
HH: What do you think sets you apart from other aspiring influencers?
REG & BRI: We think what sets us apart is that we try to show and explain the real side of being a young Black couple in this age. We talk about issues that affect Black people. We talk about the struggles of post-college life; we talk about our goals. We try to stay away from doing things just for views and creating content we enjoy as well as what our subscribers will enjoy.
HH: What has been your favorite IG/YouTube video you have made so far?
REG: Our most popular video, “Get curly hair for Black men,” featuring Cantu for Men.
BRI: My favorite video is our lookbook video because we got a chance to show our style—the Winter Lookbook featuring Aporro Brand Jewelry.
HH: What are two of your favorite hair maintenance and styling products?
REG: Murray’s Hair Dressing Pomade and Miracle Growth Oil.
BRI: Eco Styler Gel and DevaCurl Arc Angel Gel.
HH: What are your professional goals for 2019?
REG: Our professional goal together as YouTubers is to hit 50,000 subscribers by the end of the year and work with one major brand.
