We're back with another #hairohaircrush to inspire you and this week we are crushing on beauty vlogger Jacklyne, aka CertifiedCocoa! We were instantly jealous of her gorgeous curls and so we had a chat to spill all of her hair and beauty knowledge!
My name is Jacklyne and I'm a Youtuber. My channel goes by the name of CertifiedCocoa and I make beauty/lifestyle related videos.
Your tutorials and videos give us tonnes of beauty inspo! How did you get into blogging/vlogging?
Growing up I was never on any type of social media e.g. Facebook, BBM or any of that but around year 8/9 I discovered YouTube and I was hooked. I would watch so many beauty and hair related videos, vlogs, DIY's. Everything I know about beauty I learnt from YouTube tutorials. I loved the fact that you could record yourself from home and be able to reach out to so many people and help them out. Eventually, I got the courage to start my own channel. I then decided to join Instagram and Tumblr to help me promote my channel.
What advice would you give to any aspiring hair & beauty bloggers/vloggers?
It took me four years to build up the courage to post videos and honestly I wish I had just done it earlier. So my advice would be to start. If you don’t have equipment, film on your phone during daylight to get the best lighting. It's as simple as that.
We love your hair! What do you do to maintain it?
Co-washing it regularly with a lot of conditioner helps and can’t forget coconut oil.
Who is your hair crush?
I would have to say everything about Nyane Lebajoa's hair is goals.
What is your go-to hair style?
When in doubt big bouncy curls are the way to go or a sleek low ponytail.
How do you battle with a bad hair day?
Baseball caps are my best friend. When you don’t have time to do your hair just throw on a hat, they are simple and look good on anyone.
If you were stranded on a desert island, which one hair or beauty product would you choose to keep?
I would have to say my lip balm I can’t stand dry lips.
