Hair Affair

 

Hey loves! So last week I decided to bring my camera with me to this shoot I was asked to be in for Truly You Curls. I've really been trying to get into using my camera and practicing more and this seemed like a perfect opportunity for inspiration! I saw the most beautiful textures and I wanted to capture it! I want people to know that all natural hair is beautiful by showing these beauties that have chosen to embrace theirs. Hopefully I can turn this into a continuing series one day… until then, enjoy this mini-series of curly-haired beauty.
Enjoy. <3

The Mane Choice 2016

 

Honey when I tell you that my year has started out with a bang, it has started out with a BANG! The Mane Choice has chosen me to be the face of their 2016 ad campaign! Like whaaaat? How did this happen? Well my friend Britt from college mentioned me in their post on Instagram where they were in search of a model. She suggested I enter, so I did! All the post required you to do was hashtag and mention their name in a post. I saw no harm or difficulty in that, so I chose a picture on my profile and followed their instructions. A couple days later I got a slew of notifications from people I didn't know telling me congrats… I'm like "What did I do?" I went to click on a comment and it took me to their page where I was announced as their winner! Now after I did that hashtag thing that day I never thought about it after that, and I never expected anything… so I'm in complete shock. They messaged me and that was it! It was official. And I thank my friend for even considering me that day and suggesting I enter. I'm forever grateful.

Fast forward to this past weekend… they flew me out to Atlanta, and I was a real life model for the day! It was so surreal! I had my hair and make up done by some high profile people that normally cater to celebs. And they were working on me that day... like, OMG. My wardrobe was more than what I pay for all of my bills per month combined and I didn't even know it. The photographer was so great and I know he made me look super bomb!

I never in my life would've thought this was possible for me, but this opportunity put things into perspective. I'm so excited for the future.

Special thanks to Courtney, the founder and CEO, and the entire The Mane Choice team! I'll be attending many events with them throughout the year! Thanks to them for choosing me to be apart of the team.
