Who is Paisley McKnight?
Paisley McKnight is the second adopted child and the youngest of the six children of Mindy McKnight and her husband, Shaun McKnight, the famous couple who created the popular hairstyle tutorial YouTube channel ‘CuteGirlsHairstyles’. She is one of the five daughters of the couple who sportingly became models for their parents while the latter film the girls’ hairstyles in umpteen ways to be uploaded in the channel. It all started when little Paisley was not even born and Mindy who has no formal hairstyle training started getting queries about how she fixed up such different kinds of fine braids for her daughters who eventually became known for their different hairstyles at school. They also started getting publicly noticed and many a times Mindy was asked to show how to fix up different hairstyles. When the girls became offhand hair models at the mall, Mindy started a blog where she posted pictures displaying steps in fixing up different hairstyles. Eventually, she started posting videos on YouTube and later launched the YouTube channel ‘CuteGirlsHairstyles’, which garnered immense popularity. After little Paisley joined the family, she followed the footsteps of her elder sisters and willingly lets her mother fix up different hairstyles on her for the channel’s tutorials. She also allows her darling daddy style her hair on the “Daddy ‘Do” section of the channel.
The Meteoric Rise To Stardom
The concept of ‘Cute Girls Hairstyles’ came to the McKnight’s years before Paisley’s birth. Initially it started as a mere hobby for Mindy sometime around 2001 when she tried out different hairstyles on her biological twin daughters, Brooklyn and Bailey when the two were toddlers. As time passed by it became difficult to keep track of the numerous hairstyles tried, which led her to keep snaps of these for easy reference in future.
With time Mindy and her husband Shaun welcomed two more biological daughters, Kamri Noel, and Rylan and the hobby gradually became some sort of a passion with many more hairstyles including Fishtail Braids, French Braids, Waterfall Braids, plaits and twists among others coming up.
The girls became popular for such varied hairstyles in school which led queries and requests pouring in on Mindy. Not only in school, the intricate hairstyles started getting noticed in public places as well that sometime even saw the girls becoming offhand hair models.
This inspired Mindy to record step-by-step instructions of different hairstyles along with photos in blog format starting from October 2008 so that people enquiring about them can visit the blog for easy reference. As the blog gained popularity within months, Shaun came up with the idea of filming video tutorials of such hairstyles.
Post six months of uploading such videos in YouTube, Mindy was offered to host a channel by the American video-sharing website which saw the development of the YouTube channel ‘CuteGirlsHairstyles’ on March 17, 2009. Eventually Shaun left his 8-5 job to manage the technical and business part of the channel.
Little Paisley came to the McKnight’s world as their second adopted child and the youngest member of the family in 2011. In March that year her proud parents introduced her to the world through a video titled "New Addition to Our Family". The adorable and doting girl also became one of the star models of her parents channel ‘CuteGirlsHairstyles’, while enjoying the numerous hairdos her mother fixes up on her. She also lets her father fix up her hair in videos that find place in the “Daddy Do” section of the channel that exclusively features Shaun doing the hairstyling for the girls. ‘CuteGirlsHairstyles’ that adds a new hairstyle video each Sunday has over the years evolved as one of the popular YouTube channels across the world for hair tutorials and presently boasts of having more than 5,100,000 subscribers and over 960,000,000 views.
