You hear a lot of "what did you put in your hair?" and "I love your shoes!" around the NaturallyCurly offices. Personally I am always finding inspiration in what my colleagues are wearing to the office and on their Instagrams, so we're starting a new series to share what we're loving with the rest of our community - beyond our hair! #WhatWeWore

Fashion, hair, and makeup: less is more?

I have been attempting to adopt a semi-minimalistic approach to my personal wardrobe. For over a decade I’ve been rocking bold colors and patterns with unusual fittings. However, this time I opted for something that allowed me to still be bold but still classic and sophisticated. Sometimes I dress for comfort, sometimes it’s just for fashion, and sometimes it’s for both… my fashion switches up every single day and I don’t limit myself to one category.

I don’t have a specific color palette for every single day of the year since I like to change it up from day to day. My main focus when shopping for clothes are intricate geometric patterns and combining various textiles. Paisley and kente cloth -- not together -- are the best.

My curls need lightweight moisture

My summer go-to is the original DevaCurl One Condition because it’s not as heavy as the Decadence line but it still gives me a ton of moisture and curl definition. The scent is also ideal for warmer months. For my curl definer, I’ve been using Controlled Chaos; it’s a creme-gel that doesn’t feel sticky in my hands or leave a white cast like others I have tried in the past. I also like to add more natural volume without compromising my definition by giving my curls a refreshment via One Little Parrot Tropic Fruit & Honey Tresses Revitalizer.

My face says, "take it easy"

As far as my face, I stuck with a lightweight, fresh-faced look perfect for everyday work wear. On this day I used PÜR's dual-ended contour stick, KoyVoca eyeshadow, e.l.f. Eyebrow Kit with Revlon Brow Fantasy, Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss, winged liner, black mascara, and a shimmery pink highlighter. Then, to set everything in place I spritzed my face a few times with BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Makeup Setting Spray.
