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 being (“Mixed”/ Multiracial/Bi-racial/ a Minority) mean to you in 2017?
Being Multiracial means that you don’t get routine and different is okay.
Who inspires your beauty routine? How does it incorporate into your personal style?
My Mom inspires my beauty routine. I used to love watching her get ready when I was younger. The way she always took time to look her best has allowed me to mirror her actions today.
Why is your go-to Mixed Chicks product essential for your hair regime?
I am not self-conscious about my hair looking unkempt.
How do your curls/hair texture represent your cultural/ethnic background?
My Curls represent a hug culture that is growing everyday. From Afropunk festival to curlfest where girls who look just like me are celebrating their curls.
What is one feature of the Mixed Chicks brand that empowers your hair/beauty care?
Leave-in Conditioner. When I was introduced to Mixed Chicks in 2009, this product allowed me to wear my curly hair down for the first time.
Which haircare trend are you excited to try this season?
Goddess Faux locs.
What’s your Go-to Fall Hairstyle?
Wild and free just like the wind.
Do you have any go-to beauty/hair bloggers or vloggers who inspire or help your hairstyles?
Yes, I am influenced by many public figures. I am also influenced by a lot of people I see out on NYC streets.
What has been your favorite new Mixed Chicks product out this year?
The Morning After Redefining Foam. It tames all my flyaways without me having to add water or hair gel.
