June 26, 2015

Meet the Hot Pente Twins: Journalist Neomisia Silvestre and personal stylist Thaiane Almeida – two black Brazilian women who are taking over the Hip Hop party scene in São Paulo, Brazil. Their popular hip-hop party, ‘Hot Pente’ (meaning ‘Hot Comb), brings hip-hop, fashion, graffiti and street dance to the metropolitan city; bringing together new and renowned artists of the movement. The “twins” are now featured in Elle Brazil Magazine, after being selected during their “You on the Magazine” campaign – an effort to feature real women. Check out the stunning shot below. And if you’re wondering about the name, the girls use the name satirically – referring to the use of hot combs, used to straighten curly hair.
