Transitioning Beauty of the Week
Los Angeles, C.A.
How long have you been transitioning?
Hair weave and relaxer free at last!!! This month makes my two-year anniversary.
If your hair had its own personality, how would you describe it?
My hair is the Queen B on her throne and does whatever she pleases when she pleases. What she says goes. I just follow her orders.
What is the most daring thing you've ever done?
Running off to Vegas and getting married to my high school sweetheart on 11-11-11. We had reunited after almost twenty years. We didn't tell a soul until after we said our vows and it was official. It was a cheesy Elvis wedding and we dressed up as 50's greasers. To top it off, the next day we played $11 in the slot machine and won $160. All the way Vegas baby.
Who is your style or hair icon and why?
I love women that are creative, daring, and versatile with their styles and who conquers that feat better than Ms. Tyra Banks? I love how she can rock a bald head and still be knockout gorgeous. I've seen her with every hair color, cut, and style you can imagine and I have NEVER seen her have a bad hair day.
What song or album makes you feel most empowered and beautiful?
"Sweet Dreams" by Beyonce makes me think of how beautiful I feel when my husband runs his fingers through my hair and how he has made me feel beautiful every step of my transitioning journey. So many times, I've wanted to give up and get a weave or relaxer but he always reminds me how stunning my natural hair really is. Finding my true beauty in the love for my hair is definitely a sweet dream.
