DFW Beauty Bombshell: I'sha Gaines

DFW Beauty Guide - I'sha Gaines - Honey Be Natural

Name & Age: 

I'sha Gaines, 28

Professional Title:

1st Grade Teacher and the Founder of HoneyBeNatural Magazine

A little background: 

After graduating from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism, I had a growing desire to write, to spew knowledge into others that they may find somehow beneficial to their own way of life. Plagued for two years by not being able to find a journalism job in the metroplex even after being a reporter and editor at my college newspaper,The Shorthorn, interning at The Arlington Star-Telegram and Fort Worth Weekly, I became an elementary school teacher. I thought my journalism career was over! But then I had the bright idea to create my own job! 

Beauty regimens and tips? 

I swear by all-natural witch hazel.
