The internet is a very helpful resource for information. If you need hair and makeup help YouTube is a great tool to help with technique or getting new ideas. Here is a list of some of my favorite you-tubers. Each one brings something different and their videos are very helpful for ‘colored girls’ and otherwise. Check them out and learn.
