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.
