One of the fiercest women we know, we love Shayla’s DGAF attitude and body confident vibe. Shayla is without a doubt as real and raw as they come. She always stays true to herself, and no matter what people throw at her, she never responds with the drama!

Catch her looking fire for a campaign with Colorpop, honestly reviewing products on her YouTube or baring all on her Snapchat and IG stories with her badass workouts that are major motivation!

Halima Aiden


Where do we even begin with Halima? In the past five years she’s broken down so many barriers for Muslim women and is a perfect role model for women everywhere. Not only is she an activist in her own right and a UNCIEF ambassador, she was the first hijabi model to be signed by IMG.


When Halima strut the runway at MaxMara, we literally burst with joy! Most recently, she graced the pages of Sports Illustrated making her the first model to appear in the magazine in a burkini. In the video for the shoot, she re-laid an important message that we live for here at HB HQ “Don’t be afraid to be the first” Word.

Christina Abiola, aka Jesus Gang

We LOVE the positivity that shines through from Christina and she is the perfect example of someone who is comfortable in her own skin! Her messages of self-love and empowering Instagram posts make Christina a true inspiration and a role model for women around the world.


Christina really cares about her followers and the message she sends, and that in itself is inspiring.

Where do we even begin with our love for Jen Atkin?! She’s the ultimate boss! Not only did she work her way up to become the go-to hairstylist for everyone in Hollywood, she also built up her own unique haircare brand, Ouai, and damn her marketing is fire!!


She also finds the time to be hilarious on her Instagram page, and direct her brand while she styles celebs for every major event in fashion! She works hard and remains able to influence and support other brands, all while running her own – #goals!
