Celia San Miguel is a bilingual style and beauty expert, seasoned journalist and editor, author, blogger, and TV personality living in Austin, Texas. Born and raised in Puerto Rico, San Miguel holds a B.A. in Literature and Afro-American Studies from Harvard University. A veteran writer and editor, San Miguel has held editorial positions at InStyle, the New York Post, Complex, VIBE, and GIANT, and penned fashion, beauty, music, film, and lifestyle pieces for such outlets as Latina, Glamour’s Glam Belleza, Parents, Siempre Mujer, Women’s Wear Daily, Essence, Paper, the New York Daily News, Cosmopolitan.com, Glamour.com, and xoJane.com.
In 2008, she launched the forward-thinking fashion, beauty, and lifestyle blog Sicka Than Average, hoping to create a go-to destination for like-minded women: smart and sassy tastemakers who want to set, rather than follow, trends and who have an eclectic sense of style and a desire to express themselves via their beauty and fashion choices.
As the site has grown, so has the demand for San Miguel’s fashion and beauty expertise. She has hosted events, been featured in marketing campaigns, and created custom content campaigns for such brands as Pantene, Carol’s Daughter, SheaMoisture, Vaseline, Dove, Time Warner Center, and Nivea.
An in-demand TV personality, San Miguel has appeared on NBC Austin’s “Studio 512,” Telemundo NY’s “Acceso Total,” and Fox Baltimore’s “Good Day Baltimore” to discuss beauty and fashion trends.
