A SWEAR-BY BEAUTY TIP
Colouring my hair – A personal form of play and self expression
A SWEAR-BY HAIR TIP
Hot shower + letting the steam do its thing with my curls
A SMALL JOY
HAIR WASH ROUTINE
Proud to have simplified this down to wash (once a week), condition and leave in with a bit of oil. For a more voluminous look, I enjoy blow drying and dry-twisting. All the frizz is welcome here
Because Loretta has created a truly phenomenal brand and it has been a joy to witness her growth from the first sample to NOW!!!
GREAT HAIR MEMORY
The first time I coloured my hair candy floss pink. I was like WHO IS THIS CREATURE??
NIGHTMARE HAIR STORY
This one time when this woman cut my hair so badly that I looked like John Lennon. A real sorrows, sorrows, prayers momentª
FAVOURITE WAY TO STAY ACTIVE
Pharrell + Solange + Tracee Ellis Ross + Prince
IF YOU COULD GO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
Colombia in a heartbeat. Recently spent some time there and feel so connected to it.
ONE THING YOU WOULD LOVE TO DO
I’d love to see Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia. I recently saw this video of FKJ playing the most insane set there. It was the most beautiful thing and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head.
BEST PIECE OF ADVICE
Never lose your zest
