Black Girl with Long Hair began as a natural hair blog and has grown into a platform to discuss black beauty culture and womanhood from an unapologetic point of view.

Leila Noelliste, Creator and Chief Editor


Leila Noelliste is a former newspaper (remember those?) reporter who began blogging in 2008 after being appalled at how few spaces existed online for black women. Born in Chicago and raised in Jamaica by one African American and one Haitian parent, she tends to think of blackness globally. She is a pop culture, black beauty and social media enthusiast who raises two incredible kids in the city of Chicago when she’s not parked in front of a computer screen (sorry babies!)

Check out her other space, Baby and Blog.

Rinny Perkins, Content Editor


Rinny is a social media mermaid. She blogs about her TexCoast life on MissRiot.com and you might find her doing improv, mouthing off about pop culture on Twitter at @rinnyriot or at a Tame Impala concert.
