Arantxa is a 16-year-old Marketing and Communications major in Amstelveen, Holland. Her hair was last permed in 2009. Since then she's worn her hair in weaves and boxed braids. In the summer of 2011, she decided to skip the weaves and the braids altogether and rock her own natural hair! Arantxa said that although, "there are not many black girls her age with natural hair, she will never go back to a perm." Arantxa has a system for wearing her hair all year long. In the winter she wears her hair in protective styles (cornrows and buns) and in summer she wears braid-outs and fro hawks. Arantxa said she's always looking for new hairstyles and loves all the different things she can do with her natural hair!
