My love for storytelling through physical appearance. Stepping into the shoes of new characters year after year, taught me how clothing, makeup, and hair informs the wearer of a life lived and how the same can be said in reverse. I made friends with the costume designers, makeup artists, and wig makers and before I knew it, I began my journey to where I am today.
Shortly after receiving my master’s degree in acting, I began my career as a makeup artist working for Sephora and designing makeup for independent film projects.
In the midst of fun and “face painting”, in 2010 I cut off all of my chemically processed hair and revealed a beautiful halo of 4 C hair. I began sharing what I learned on YouTube and discovered a community of people who desired to embrace their natural hair as well.
In the vein of self-expression, fashion is a big part of how I present myself to the world. I have an athletic body type and I’ve seen a void in how to dress my shape, aside from workout clothing. I told myself, “you create the space”, and this website was born.
You can expect flattering outfit ideas, 4 C haircare tutorials, fitness related posts, occasional giveaways, and a cool place to shop my personal outfits with trending fashion that can flatter any shape.
Welcome, and thank you for embarking on this fun, informative journey with me. I’m looking forward to getting to know you through your comments and conversation.
