The 20-year-old YouTube star showed off new styles for the hair and beauty website — we’re loving the slick back look on her!
Here’s what Bethany had to share about her videos, hair and music:
On her social media impact: “I think at the end of the day, everything I’m doing is to encourage everyone, not just women but everyone, to be more fearless and to go after what you truly desire. I was so shy and limited because I allowed myself to be restricted by my fears and insecurities. Starting YouTube was a big step and out of character for me. I almost didn’t do it because I had the fear of not being cool. People looked down on me because of it and I did it anyways. It was the first stepping stone for me to conquering my fears. There were so many other things I wasn’t doing because I was scared of hurting my pride. After my self-realization, I found that being fearless means you do have fear and you acknowledge it but you’re going to have the courage to do it anyways. Find out what your dreams are, even if it scares you. I want to encourage everyone to go after that.”
On growing into her hair: “I see it as a way of self-expression. Growing up, I never really liked doing my hair. I was a huge tomboy and I had short hair that was always messy and tangled. And then I started YouTube and got into doing hair tutorials on my channel. I came up with so many different types of braids! Different hair styles can really make and enhance your look and make you more unique. I actually hadn’t dyed my hair before until about a year ago and now I’m like I love this!! It’s really a great way to reinvent yourself!”
On what’s next: “The next step for me is music, it’s something I’ve always done, but behind the scenes until this year when I started doing a few covers with my friend, Kurt Hugo Schneider. Now I’m ready to put out some of my own music. It terrifies me, but I need to do it because it’s something I’ve wanted to do all my life. So next, I’m going to focus on that and continue focusing on YouTube because that’s what I’m truly passionate about.”

“About a year ago, after so much rejection, I got back up & decided to start playing shows again. I decided to try believing again. And now…My wildest dreams have come true. And it’s crazy. And I just want to say, please don’t give up on yourselves. It’s never too late,” Rachel wrote on Twitter earlier in the week.
She added, “Do not let those cruel voices in your head trick you – quiet them so you can hear your heart. And then listen as it whispers…you can do it. NEVER GIVE UP.”
