Who is Mindy McKnight?
Mindy McKnight is a celebrated American YouTuber, who came into the limelight and gained popularity following the launch of her YouTube channel, ‘Cute Girls Hairstyles’, in 2009. It was Mindy’s husband, Shaun who inspired her to record footages of the different hairdos, she illustrated on her blogs and post them on YouTube. By and by, Mindy’s YouTube channel began to be followed by innumerable users and as of now, it has more than 3 million subscribers. Mindy and Shaun McKnight established a company ‘M-Star Media Inc for producing and managing digital content. Mindy was invited to share her views about hairstyles and sharing them on social media platforms, on popular TV shows like ‘Good Morning America’, ‘ABC News’ 20/20, and ‘Anderson Live’. She was once voted one of ‘Top 25 women’ on YouTube. Mindy also has been associated with ‘The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints’ for a long time as a member. She presently stays in Texas with her husband and her 4 daughters and 2 adopted children.
Mindy in her official website (www.cutegirlshairstyles.com) has admitted that she was plain bored with the ‘waterspout’ hairdos that her 1-and-a-half year old twin daughters, Bailey and Brooklyn, sported in 2001. It was her exasperation with the twin daughters’ drab hairstyles that stirred her up to experiment with a range of trendy hairdos ultimately providing the spark to create YouTube channel ‘Cute Girls Hairstyles’, in 2009.
She photographed every hairstyle that the kids tried as they grew up and archived the snapshots in a photo album and placed the folder besides the sink in the bathroom.
Snaps kept on being added to the album as she gave birth to two daughters. By the time the elder twins started attending school Mindy noticed that they made it a point to flip through the folder and select a specific hairstyle for any given day. Mindy’s friends started taking an unusual interest in the hairdos and requested her for details.
In due course of time, she took to blogging on the various hairstyles and even uploaded images to reinforce the content. As her blog started to grow in popularity, Shaun, her husband inspired her to make videos where she was seen doing the hair of their daughters. Soon, they started uploading the videos on YouTube, and after some months passed away, Mindy was invited by the video sharing platform to launch a new channel.
After carefully considering the offer, Mindy and Shawn hosted the ‘Cute Girls Hairstyles’ channel in 2009 which has more than 5 million subscribers as of June 2017. While Mindy takes care of filming the videos, her husband oversees the technical aspects of managing the channel. A new video is uploaded every Sunday and the footages are usually based around beauty, fashion, crafting, and family vlogs. She also creates and circulates content for other well-known sites such as Google, Subaru, and IHC. She also has a partnership with Disney IMG to make available video content exclusively for the Disney group of websites.
