Nura Afia Lands Beauty Spread in the April 2017 Issue of Glamour Magazine

The April 2017 issue of Glamour Magazine features a "Beauty, Redefined" spread, highlighting 40 "rebels and rule breakers" who are redefining American beauty standards. And guess what?! The spread includes one of our favorite [Haute] hijabis, Nura Afia!

Last year, Nura landed a role as the first hijabi CoverGirl brand ambassador. This year she continues to find a seat on the main stage as a proud hijabi and major beauty influencer, this time as part of the beauty spread in Glamour Magazine, where she talks about tailoring her brow routine to her hijab, among other things. You can catch her extended interview and a behind the scenes video of her shoot on Galmour's website. We love the advice she gives her 13-year-old self:

"Just because you don't look like everyone else doesn't mean you’re any less than anyone else.

Preach, sister! We also love that a mainstream magazine is providing a platform for Muslim women to talk beauty on their terms. And how awesome is it that Nura is wearing our cult favorite Jersey Wrap in Camel in her spread?! 

Check out Nura's feature below!

We love you Nura, and wish you continuous success! Thank you for being unapologetically you, and showing girls everywhere that hijab is beautiful and that wearing it does not stop you from living your dreams and being successful. We urge you all to let Glamour know how much you love their inclusive beauty spread and that you want to keep seeing more hijabis on their pages!
