Introduce yourself!
K:
Hello! My name is Krystal, and I recently moved from Washington, D.C. to Brooklyn, N.Y. I am a public health professional by day, and in my “spare” time I blog at The Feisty House. I’m also the creative director of Feisty Society Clothing Company, which is a ladies’ street wear brand launching this Fall!

What is your style philosophy?
K:
Dress how you feel! My style is directly related to how I’m feeling at the time, so I never end up wearing something I’m not 100 percent comfortable in. I also stay true to my individual aesthetic; that’s what makes my style so personal. I don’t wear things just because they’re trendy right now. I wear the things I like and I make trends my own.

How would you describe your sense of style?
K:
My sense of style is very feminine. I love feeling like a woman in my clothes, whether I’m wearing a dress or wearing a t-shirt and jeans.

What is the process of deciding what to wear in the morning?
K:
I check in with my myself and how I feel that day, and I think about what I’m going to be doing, or where I’m going. Then I find something that fits. Some days I know exactly what I want to wear, other days I go through a few outfit changes. On those days, I usually get some inspo from the Pinterest app on my iPhone.

What are the three favorite things in your closet?
K:
Ankle strap sandals I bought from Zara, a maxi dress I purchased at Urban Outfitters, and my crop tops from Tobi.

What are some of your favorite shops/websites for clothes, shoes and accessories?
K:
I love Zara for shoes and statement pieces (like my jacquard top), and I purchase basics from H&M. I love Forever 21 for good deals on accessories.

How long have you been natural?
K:
My whole life! But I’ve been on a healthy hair journey since 2008. I finally reached BSL this year, and I attribute that growth to a low-manipulation regimen. I style my hair only once a week on wash day.

What is your signature hairstyle?
K:
I used to wear Curlformer sets a lot; that was definitely my signature hairstyle. Nowadays my signature style would have to be a flat twistout. I only do about 6 or 7 flat twists, but I get a ton of definition. To maintain the style all week, I sleep with my hair in a pineapple each night, and I use the L.O.C. method to moisturize and refresh my curls every morning.

Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
K:
I cowash my hair once a week using Aussie Moist Conditioner. I detangle my hair in the shower while it’s soaked with conditioner. I usually do a weekly protein treatment as well; I’ve been using Aphogee’s 2-min Keratin Reconstructor for a while now. I deep condition every other week with Shea Moisture’s Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque. I shampoo once a month using Kinky Curly Come Clean. It is the best shampoo I’ve ever used! I style my hair only once a week, on wash day. I use the Jane Carter Solution Revitalizing Leave-in Conditioner, seal with extra virgin coconut oil, and then I let my hair air dry about 75 percent. Then I flat twist my hair using an Herbal Essences conditioner (either “Honey I’m Strong” or “Long-Term Relationship”). I take my flat twists out the next day, and rock a twist out for the entire week.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
K:
Of course! You can find me at The Feisty House (www.thefeistyhouse.com), and I’m also on Facebook (facebook.com/thefeistyhouse). If you like to use Tumblr, you can find me there too (thefeistyhouse.tumblr.com). And stay tuned for the launch of Feisty Society this Fall! It’s going to be amazing!

I clicked on the Feisty House link and I noticed that you do not use the King James version of the Bible. I personally think that this is not a good idea. I found out from this website: https://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Bible/New%20King%20James%20Bible/new_king_james_counterfeit.htm
