When Sarah changed her perspective about curly hair, it became an advantage instead of a challenge.
SO: I think having a big curly head makes me stand out more and people tend to remember me more easily. Now that I think of it, I realize that I have almost never received a compliment about my hair when it was straight and now that it’s curly there is always someone asking whether it is my natural hair or telling me how they love it!
NC: How do you think having curly hair has impacted your everyday life?
SO: I used to not like my curly hair at all but I think that when trying to embrace it and live with it, and you receive positive feedback, it makes you realize that sometimes you put yourself down for nothing. It actually gave me back a bit of self confidence and taught me to turn a challenge into an advantage. And this can be applied to everything about us, not only hair !
NC: What would you tell others to encourage them to embrace their curls?
SO: I might not be the right person to speak about embracing your curls because it took me a while to do so, but what worked for me was to find a good routine that my hair responded well too and as I said before, I always kept in the back of my mind all the positive comments that I received from people (especially strangers because they have no reason to lie to me) and tell myself that my curls are not that bad and somewhere in the world, some people wish they had it.
NC: Tell us about your current and upcoming projects.
SO: In terms of hairstyle, I would like to go for a lighter color such as caramel or golden brown, maybe even highlights but I am fearing the dye damage so maybe I would wait a little bit before that.
NC: Where can we find you on the web?
SO: You can follow me on Instagram, there is not much hair picture but from time to time you can sneak peak on how my hair is doing! Sarah97435
