How would you describe your sense of style?
S: My personal style is laid back for the most part. I love edgy looks and thrifted pieces. I LOVE TO THRIFT.
What are the three favorite things in your closet?
S: Right now my three favorite things in my closet would be my MK sneakers, love Michael Kors, my black pleather pleated skirt, and my blazers. I love colorful blazers although it’s warming up outside now.
How long have you been natural?
S: I have been natural 2 years as of May 2013.
How and why did you transition into natural hair?
S: I actually didn’t transition at all. I woke up one morning and decided to chop off all of my past shoulder length hair. As you can imagine everyone thought I had lost my mind lol. That was one of the most liberating experiences ever.
What is your signature hairstyle?
S: I would say my signature hairstyle is my wash and go fro. I do a lot of roll and tuck updos, but for the most part I wear my wash and go hairstyle.
Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
S: I am somewhat on the CG Method. I mostly co-wash my hair. My new go to product is the As I Am Naturally Coconut CoWash. I LOVE that product. Anything Shea Moisture makes is my favorite…lol I also find OBIA Natural Hair Care Curl Enhancing Custard to be amazing. I use this product for wash and go’s and updos.
Tell us about your hair color.
S: I get this question a lot. lol I actually colored my hair myself. I used Revlon Frost and Glow in Medium Blonde to lift the front. The back was a reddish brown color I had done at MasterCuts a while ago. The color didn’t really change my hair texture. There were a few strands that loosened in the top, but nothing major.
