Intro­duce your­self!
N:
HEY GUYS! My name is Nneo­ma. You can call me Nne! I am cur­rent­ly resid­ing in Queens, NY and I am a media mogul in the mak­ing. For now though, I am a stu­dent, host, and per­son­al­i­ty for my web­show called the THE NNE nd IKE SHOW.

What is your style phi­los­o­phy?
N:
My style phi­los­o­phy? Hmm, I think it’d be to wear what makes you feel like YOU. Don’t leave your house wear­ing any­thing that doesn’t make you feel com­fort­able and con­fi­dent. At the end of the day clothes DO NOT and SHOULD NOT wear you, you should wear the clothes. This means walk out the house every­day feel­ing like you run the town. Peo­ple will notice.

How would you describe your sense of style?
N:
My sense of style is ran­dom. It depends on the day, weath­er, mood, and most impor­tant­ly my hair. I find myself sub­con­scious­ly mix­ing cul­tures, trends, and eras. Real­ly, when I’m out shop­ping I just pick up any­thing I think looks nice.

What is the process of decid­ing what to wear in the morn­ing?
N:
My process of fig­ur­ing out what to wear in the morn­ing is quite a process! There are many fac­tors that go into it! This is noth­ing to be tak­en light­ly peo­ple! lol The fac­tors are weath­er, the last time I wore that piece of cloth­ing, my hair, what I will be doing for the day, and whether that out­fit is impor­tant enough, because I’m one of those that can’t STAND to waste a good out­fit on an insignif­i­cant day! lol Some days pick­ing out out­fits is eas­ier than oth­er days, and I leave feel­ing quite accom­plished. But on days that I have a hard time pick­ing out an out­fit, please believe my room looks like a tor­nado just hit it! I just think it’s fun­ny how you can have a clos­et filled with clothes, but still have noth­ing to wear.

What are the three favorite things in your clos­et?
N:
I actu­al­ly don’t have three favorite items in my clos­et. Noth­ing that I’ll favor forever. Oh well, now that I think about it. I do have ONE favorite item in my clos­et! And that would be my black mid hi top oxford shoes that I bought yearsssss ago. The rea­son the­se are a favorite is because there’s a very sig­nif­i­cant sto­ry behind them. I actu­al­ly don’t wear those shoes out any­more (there’s some holes in em’) but besides that the­se shoes launched my pas­sion for style and express­ing myself. I decid­ed to ulti­mate­ly start dress­ing how I want­ed to with­out real­ly look­ing for my generation’s approval. This in turn boost­ed my self-con­fi­dence and helped shape who I am today. Oh, and I bought the shoes at Aldo. lol

What are some of your favorite shops/websites for clothes, shoes and acces­sories?
N:
I hon­est­ly do not have a favorite store or web­site to shop at to be quite hon­est. (I real­ly hope I’m not being dif­fi­cult here, lol). I have the men­tal­i­ty that I can just shop every­where and any­where.

How long have you been nat­u­ral?
N:
I have been nat­u­ral for more than 2 years now.

How and why did you tran­si­tion into nat­u­ral hair?
N:
I tran­si­tioned into nat­u­ral hair not because my hair was in bad con­di­tion or any­thing like that, but just because I want­ed to see how thick and long my hair could grow. I kind of want­ed to see what was on “the oth­er side” and fig­ure out whether the “grass was green­er” (it was). I tran­si­tioned sim­ply by not get­ting perms any­more.

What is your sig­na­ture hair­style?
N:
I don’t think I have a sig­na­ture hair­style to be hon­est because I don’t usu­al­ly keep any hair­style for too long, but if there were to be a sig­na­ture style that I don’t see many peo­ple rock­ing it’d be my “Oprah hair­style”. It’s basi­cal­ly an afro curl puff with flipped curls. An exam­ple of that is the pic­ture I have with the sil­ver blaz­er on. Look out for a YouTube tuto­ri­al on that soon! 

Describe your styling reg­i­men over the course of the mon­th.
N:
My styling regime over the course of this mon­th is real­ly just my hair in a par­tial full head weave (I want­ed to give my hair a break). But before this, I was rock­ing a fro! The ratio­nale behind my styling deci­sions is between my hair­styl­ist Susy: www.hairbysusy.com (she’s respon­si­ble for ALL of the fab­u­lous hair­styles I rock), and myself. I love to wear my hair in var­i­ous styles to add more to my look, and sim­ply because I want to! I always like to switch it up and give myself a new look. I think that’s one of the best things about hair! Espe­cial­ly black hair, there’s so much you can do with it! Some prod­ucts I use on my hair are Gar­nier Fruc­tis For­ti­fy­ing Sham­poo and Con­di­tion­er, Vit­a­m­in E oil, coconut oil, and olive oil.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
N:
Yes! There is: www.nnes-corner.blogspot.com
