Emerging model, Gabriella Bernard had set her sights on working her way to the top with her natural hair. But she soon learns that not everyone wants that image to be at the top.
Following model Gabriella Bernard's journey, we hear her firsthand account of growing up, embracing her natural beauty, and what she did when a client asked her to chemically relax her hair after 2 years of being natural. The beauty industry hails the European standard of beauty, but Gabriella Bernard is challenging that.
