Dallas, Texas native, Cormeshia Carson Batty, began a romance with beauty and fashion as a plus-size child, remaking off-the-rack garments into off-the-chart fashions and always rocking the latest and greatest hairstyles. It’s been her lifelong dream to become editor-in-chief of a fashion magazine—a dream that’s not so far from reality.
From a low-fade, to an afro and now, dreadlocks, Batty has incorporated culture, hair fashion and makeup research and application into her writing and come full circle as a lifestyle writer. Today, her position on makeup, accessories, hairstyles, shoes, clothes, weight loss and lifestyle is among the most insightful, witty and unique advice of its kind.
