Intro­duce your­self!
D:
My name is Dia­mond Mahone. I reside in Dal­las, Tex­as. By day I work at Ten­Over­Six, a new con­cept store that just recent­ly opened in Dal­las. Aside from that I have my blog www.DiamondJanae.com and I am also work­ing on a con­cept brand with my boyfriend. 

What is your style phi­los­o­phy?
D:
My style phi­los­o­phy is pret­ty sim­ple. Dress how you like and don’t ride with the trends. The old­er I get, the less com­pli­cat­ed I want my style to be. I have been exper­i­ment­ing with dif­fer­ent looks but I nev­er want it to be con­trived, so I just do what I like. Dress­ing should be an effort­less thing. Nev­er take your­self too seri­ous­ly because it real­ly isn’t that seri­ous!

How would you describe your sense of style?
D:
I would say my style is a mash up of the things I am into. It has ele­ments of my envi­ron­ment, like the music I lis­ten to, or movies that I watch. It kin­da changes bi-week­ly. I will fan­ta­size this idea in my head of what I want to look like based off of all those things. I am a lover of most things that are vin­tage. I hoard all of my vin­tage pieces and like to invest in spe­cial­ty things.

What is the process of decid­ing what to wear in the morn­ing?
D:
I base what I am wear­ing in the morn­ing on the weath­er, what activ­i­ty I am doing, and how I feel. I don’t ever plan out­fits. I like things to be organ­ic and base it off of my feel­ing. I love to work­out and some­times I like wear­ing ath­let­ic pieces mixed in with my “reg­u­lar” clothes. I can watch a movie and the next day be inspired by that.

What are the three favorite things in your clos­et?
D:
I actu­al­ly don’t have a real clos­et right now. Most of my clothes are on cloth­ing racks. I am mov­ing and can’t wait to get a real clos­et again. My favorite pieces that are get­ting some rota­tion are: My Loef­fler Ran­dal Tam­sin Pumps that I just recent­ly bought at my store, Ten­over­six. They have this trib­al pat­tern by Tuck­er that I can pret­ty much wear with any­thing and are so com­fort­able. I have this vin­tage silk bomber jack­et with gold stars that I would wear with every­thing if I could. I also have this vin­tage blaz­er that I got from Lulu B’s. It has a trompe l’oeil Ken­te print on it. I would say 80% of my clos­et is made of prints.

What are some of your favorite shops/websites for clothes, shoes and acces­sories?
D:
My favorite places to shop for clothes are my store Ten­over­six, Zara for the cheap basics, and Open­ing Cer­e­mony for the unique stuff.

How long have you been nat­u­ral?
D:
I have been nat­u­ral for 2 years now. I just chopped it off one day. I don’t real­ly like to jump on trends and I feel it can be a trend to be a part of this “nat­u­ral” phase. I deal with my hair like I do with my style. It kin­da changes and I can’t ever say what I’m gonna do next. I just love the sim­plic­i­ty of doing my own hair and tak­ing the time to put love and care into my hair.

How and why did you tran­si­tion into nat­u­ral hair?
D:
My lifestyle is what made me “tran­si­tion” into rock­ing my nat­u­ral hair. I start­ed work­ing out more and eat­ing dif­fer­ent­ly and want­ed every­thing that I put into my body to come from a nat­u­ral state.

What is your sig­na­ture hair­style?
D:
I would say short­er hair is my sig­na­ture look. I think I’m gonna stick with this look for a while until I get bored.

Describe your styling reg­i­men over the course of the mon­th.
D:
As I start­ed grow­ing out my hair, I got bored and want­ed some­thing a lit­tle more edgy, so I tapered off the sides. I like short hair on me. It’s easy and kin­da acts as an acces­so­ry, and now that I’ve been cut­ting my hair on the sides it makes it eas­ier to main­tain. I like the low main­te­nance. I wash my hair once every week or two weeks using As I Am Coconut Co-Wash. I back it up with vir­gin coconut oil from Whole Foods. I do a two-strand twist out with raw cocoa but­ter to help keep my hair shiny and main­tain my twist out longer.

My boyfriend is Jamaican, has dreads, and offers some good advice like refrain­ing from wash­ing my hair with hot or warm water as it dehy­drates the hair. I have to keep up my fades lol, so I go every two weeks to have that done. My boo likes when it grows in a bit. I like the vari­ety. I have con­tem­plat­ed the idea of dread­ing the top, or at least grow­ing the top real­ly long. Who knows!

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
D:
I run my own blog www.DiamondJanae.com and Tum­blr, Insta­gram and all the oth­er good stuff!
