Patrícia Avelino is a YouTuber, a makeup artist and also a mother. She lives in São Paulo, Brazil. And she is the first woman in her family who can help structure her hair.
A fashion graduate, Patricia first worked in a construction company, went on to the administrative area, then finally took the chance and tried her luck as a singer. In fact, it was from a singer (Brazilian artist Negra Li) that she took the inspiration for embracing her natural hair.
Patrícia felt the desire to reset her image — she shaved her hair and let the black power grow freely. Along with a big pair of earrings (her trademark style), she learned to explore her own beauty.
Today, Patrícia encourages a lot of women to do the very same thing through her YouTube channel – which, by the way, started out with some makeup tips, but ended up with Patrícia's hair taking the spotlight (she often gets stories from followers who made a hair transition motivated by her on her DMs).
