Hi, my name is Roshini Cope and I am the founder of Glamazini.com (that would be me looking all sunshiny while holding the yellow umbrella LOL).
In 2002, I created this website (formally Roshini.net) as a personal journal to document my transition from relaxed to natural hair. At the time this sort of website was nonexistent and, to my surprise and joy, my readership grew quickly.
Since then, the site has taken on a life of its own, expanding into a beauty and style destination with an ample emphasis on natural hair, mental health, travel and much much more. If I love it, I share it with my audience, affectionately called my “Glam Fam”.
Beyond that, I’ve added a thriving YouTube channel that currently boasts over 17,500 loyal subscribers while gaining a love for public speaking. I have been a conference speaker on topics ranging from growing a successful YouTube channel to gender perspectives on natural hair, and I’ve even served as conference host (which was beyond fun let me tell ya!).
My goal is to inspire my audience while making them smile. Whether I’m styling healthy natural hair, reviewing a product, advocating for mental health, educating about my son’s special needs, taking you along on my many travels, reviewing a book, showing you how to make healthy coleslaw or your own moisturizer, or just goofing off, you’re sure to smile your way through the entire thing and learn a little something while you do. I promise.
I am a 6 foot 1 inch tall natural-haired Virgin Islands-born & raised married Christian full force of geeky glamour currently living in St. Louis, Missouri with my husband and 1 year old son.
To my Glam Fam
I’ve emailed you, driven out of state to meet you, let you stay on my apartment floor (seriously I really did that), texted you, thought of you daily, had you yell my name across the grocery store parking lot, had you recognize my husband in the underwear section at Walmart (awkward), been in your weddings, held your babies, traveled with you, received gifts, gave gifts, told you (almost) all my business and dang near documented my every move for years because of you. I love you all.
