Number 15  in the BW of Brazil series Faces of Afro Brazil, model Beatriz Fortunato recently sat down in a photo session to demonstrate how to make ponytails with braid bows and other options for cabelos crespos (kinky/curly hair) with a professional hairstylist. Two years ago Beatriz made a name for herself after winning a modeling contest for girls from poor communities throughout Brazil. She overcame 20,000 contestants to claim victory in the event that was televised on a popular television program. See her story here. Photos by Marcos Serra Lima
