Welcome to the Your Hair Story Series presented by Mixed Chicks. This dynamic, new innovative series allows Mixed Chicks users to share their personal stories behind their hair. Hair that kinks, coils, curls, waves, and tells a story reflecting their culture, race, ethnicity, and upbringing. Like our customers, hair comes in all shades, textures and shapes unique to each individual and here at Mixed Chicks we want to celebrate that to the utmost extent. Meet our exquisite Mixed Chicks women, men, and children who exhibit beauty from the root and give us honest, bold stories that we are honored to share with you.

What does “Mixed, Multiracial or Bi-racial) mean to you in 2017?
Being mixed means to me that I am part of two amazing, beautiful and strong cultures (Nigeria/ Scotland).
Who inspires your beauty routine? How does it incorporate into your personal style?
My personal style involves anything that lets me run free and get messy! It is all inspired by how much time mummy has to spend on it 😉 She encourages me to learn what I like and don’t like, with the hope that my personal style will develop as I get bigger.
What is one feature of the Mixed Chicks brand that empowers your hair/beauty care?
Mixed Chicks has empowered my Scottish mummy to be able to do my hair with confidence, knowing it will look good!
How do your curls/hair texture represent your cultural/ethnic background?
Curly hair runs in both sides of my family. I have fine hair like my mummy but it curls like daddy’s and it gets a lot of attention.
Which haircare trend are you excited to try this season?
I don’t have any specific haircare trend that I’m excited to try, I just like when my hair is soft and bouncy instead of tuggy and sore!
Do you have any go-to beauty/hair bloggers or vloggers who inspire or help your hairstyles?
Mum looks to Instagram (as well as family friends) for help with hair care.
What has been your favorite new Mixed Chicks product out this year?
My favourite Mixed Chick product is the Tangle Tamer– mummy can do my hair quickly and it smells yummy enough to eat!
