Tell us your name and where you are from?
Hi, Im Mia O from DALLAS
What do you do?
I am a store visual merchandiser, fashion blogger and designer
Is there a resistance or compatibility with your hair in your field of work?
No, thank god I am free to be as natural as I want, and I love that.
How long have you been natural?
I have been “natural” since I was 15 but initially chopped my hair when I was 17 keeping it cut for like a year and a half but I have only been taking care of it and learning natural ways for about 7 months and I love it.
Describe your hair.
Well due to prior heat damage I have lost some curl which I have been cutting out little by little but other than that I am like a 3c with some crazy coils and massive shrinkage.
What is your hair regimen?
I am still figuring that out myself I am still testing products and trying to figure out what works for me I know I love oils and I want to form a low maintenance natural regimen abiding by the curly method just a bit.
What is your best hair advice?
Do what works best for you everyone has a different coil a different grade, and also be expecting to the unexpected you never know what your curls will do I have only had 4-6 successful twist-out so I am still getting there.
How do you protect your hair when using heat?
When heat styling my hair ,which I rarely do due to heat damage. I protect my hair with Moroccan Argan oil on damp hair blow dry on low then straighten.
Who is your hair idol?
I love Corrine Bailey Rae her curls are so big and pretty, but I also love CURLY NIKKI she is always a go to guide when I am trying to get some hair information, confidence, help ect.
What is the strangest comment, request or hair story?
I haven’t received one yet being fairly new to the community but I can’t wait.
How would you describe your personal fashion style?
I am very classic, and by that I mean era classic. I love pieces from certain times in fashion. I love the 90′s I love the 60′s and I am obsessed with platforms so it may be a bit all over the place , but just check me out so you can see for yourself at www.beautyandthefox.com.
What advice would you give to people who might be afraid to show their true fashion for fear of being judged by others?
I mean if you not walking around with your parts out, and I mean truly naked, then it shouldn’t matter what people think fashion is a form of art with no limits.
What would you say to others who judge individuals negatively for their personal fashion style?
Personally I wouldn’t say anything but to those who do judge it’s ridiculous I feel like everyone is open to their own opinion and people should know that one not mind is alike ,like Oscar Wilde says be yourself ; everyone else is already taken.
When it comes to your style who, what or where does your inspiration come from?
I am inspired by the 60′s and the 90′s bust more importantly I love the Olsen’s their style is phenomenal.
If you could name one person from the past or present whose closet you would love to raid, who would it be?
I would raid Bridgette Bardot’s closet I love her style, and I am obsessed with the the era she was most popular in when she was in her prime.
