MEET JAYDENE CHRISTIE Jaydene felt like the odd one out growing up, and that she needed to look like everyone else to be pretty. Throughout secondary school, she begged her Mum to straighten her hair so that she would look like the other girls. She later moved to London started studying makeup artistry, and began to open her mind to what is considered beautiful. The diverse range of people in London helped Jaydene learn to love herself and her unique features. She stopped straightening her hair and began to rock her curls with confidence. To Jaydene, beauty means being whoever you want to be, embracing your quirks and understanding that diversity is beautiful.
