HypeHair.com, an established website that celebrates hairstyling and beauty options for women of color, wants to work with committed freelance writers to contribute short posts on beauty trends and fashion styles.
Freelance writers will pitch story ideas, research, and write 2-4 newsworthy posts weekly, using clear, concise language that pairs with the site’s tone and voice. Word length is 150-400 words per post. Writers will source their own photos or images to accompany each post. Familiarity with using Photoshop or Pixlr to crop or resize images is a plus. Writers will also craft their own fun, smart headlines that stimulate readers to share their content.
Writers must have at least one or more years of experience covering beauty, fashion, or breaking news, and continually keep abreast of trends and changes in the industry.
Writers are paid per post. The amount is discussed between the editor and writer.
Before applying to become a freelance contributor, writers should navigate through HypeHair.com to acquaint themselves with what the site publishes, the site’s readership, and the overall editorial direction.
