The channel is run by a certified fitness instructor, Cassey Ho. Her friendly and bubbly personalities make lying on a mat and working on core, legs, and arms become very enjoyable. She also uploads a series of workout challenges that the viewers can follow throughout the week to keep them motivated. We really like her Bridal Bootcamp series.
3. Fashion and beauty
Ashley, aka bestdressed, shows that being stylish doesn’t always mean buying clothes at high-end stores. Instead she chose thrift stores as a more affordable alternative. Bestdressed is a one-woman production channel that makes a wide range of weekly content, from vlogs to fashion to any random subjects. Seriously, you’ll fall in love with her witty personality as much as her style.
This YouTuber covers everything from beauty to diet to fitness tips. She’s known for her easy to follow makeup tips and her amazing fashion sense. The Korean-American beauty also has her own cosmetics line and has worked with several designers. What we like from her channel is her “What Would Jenn Wear?” series where she answers styling questions from her subscribers.
