Its not just her gorgeous skin or well structured face, its her confidence and the way she carries herself. She flaunts her curves with so much pride it can get a skinny girl jealous. Swinging easily from low cut to rocking long wigs, this plus sized model Philomena Kwao has got me crushing on her :$

Do you want to keep your hair short?
I love my hair short, no fuss! I’m very lazy with my hair so the maintenance of long hair is not for me. Plus I love my wigs.

I cut my hair knowing that if it went wrong I could always wear wigs until it grew back. !

What’s the longest you’ve had your hair? When it was longer did you relax it?
I’ve had my hair to just below shoulder length. I had curly perm from the age of 4 and a relaxer until 17.
After that I had severe relaxer damage and I went natural. Then I got bored and shaved my head at 22

We are all beautiful
