Once upon a time, Cyprian's twins Kwann and TK Vander could not stand their hair. Kypriana says: "I didn't have any creative freedom. I've almost started to hate my hair and see it as a hindrance." But after some time, they decided to fall in love with afrokudri and stop straightening them.
Together with her friend Nikisha Brunson, they started the blog Urban Bush Babes, explaining it this way: "It has come to the point that people look askance at those who do nothing with the natural state of their hair and, for example, wear afro. We wanted to break down negative stereotypes about natural hairstyles." Now sisters with unusual looks are shooting in photo shoots for ASOS, Gap and fashion magazines, and they are admired by people all over the world.

The girls are asked the same questions every day, so Kypriana has prepared the answers to them in advance.
Is it all your own hair? Yes.
Wow, they must be heavy, is it hard for you to keep your head straight? It is a common misconception that afrokudri are heavy. In fact, the opposite is true. I can't say I don't feel global warming in the New York heat, but our hair looks deceptive: in fact, they are light as a feather. So the answer is no.
Do you have dreadlocks braided? No.
Why don't you braid it? Dreadlocks are great, but I prefer the natural look of my hair.
Another favorite question of mine is: "Why don't you wear the same hairstyle as your sister?" My first thought: well, this is my right, obviously, I love my hair the way it is now, otherwise I would have picked up a different hairstyle long ago. Instead, I reply, "It's just my choice." Jokes aside: my preferences are caused not only by aesthetics, but also by the difference in the condition of our hair.
