Style: Eki in the United Kingdom

• Aug 14, 2013


Introduce yourself!
My name is Eki Ogunbor. I just completed my undergraduate degree in Accounting and Finance from the University of Kent. I am currently in Lagos, Nigeria interning with Xclamations by Tomi Rotimi. I also run a fashion and lifestyle blog called The Chameleon Blogger.

What is your style philosophy?
For me comfort is key. You look your best when you are confident and comfortable in what you’re wearing. Accessories also play an important part in my dressing, but I try not to over do it. Lastly, I believe it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed to an event, which is something I’ve learned from my mum over the years.

How would you describe your sense of style?
I think my style is quite versatile. Some days I channel my inner tomboy, and the next I’m looking bohemian. Honestly, I just go with the flow and try to look good.


What is the process of deciding what to wear in the morning?
Really the process begins the night before lol. Before I sleep, I make a mental picture of what I have in my closet and pick my options. The decision is eventually made in the morning, or sometimes I just re-rock an outfit, who cares!

What are the three favorite things in your closet?
The number one thing would be scarves. They hide a multitude of bad hair days. Any scarf will do but I prefer my ankara print scarves, and I get those from my mum, love her. Next would be my American Apparel riding pants, honestly I could live in those. They fit really well and they are quite comfy as well. Somehow people always seem to think I’ve lost weight when I wear them, which is always good 🙂 The last thing would have to be my black Alexander Wang Rocco Bag, it’s the perfect bag for me because it’s the right balance between an everyday bag and a statement bag as well.

What are some of your favorite shops/websites for clothes, shoes and accessories?
Shops! I like Zara, Topshop, H&M, Net-A-Porter, Asos, Matches Fashion, Vintage/Thrift shops, Markets, Ebay… Honestly I can shop every and anywhere as long as I like what I see and it’s a reasonable price.

How long have you been natural?
It’s been three years since my big chop.

How and why did you transition into natural hair?
I first relaxed my hair when I was 13 and big chopped at 18. In the space of 5 years, I realized I didn’t have the patience to commit to a life of relaxers every now and then so I decided to go natural again. I also like big voluminous Diana Ross looking hair and going natural would give me the best of both worlds. I can rock my afro and still have straight hair with heat or a weave.

What is your signature hairstyle?
My signature hairstyle is between the turban wrap with my scarves or the usual afro I wear either as a wash and go, twist out or a blow out.

Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
I do a lot of protective styling for the most part of the month, either with braids, a weave or a wig. Before and after that I make sure my hair is washed with either Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo or Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo, and properly conditioned with Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner (which I also use as a deep conditioner). I use a lot of oils such as coconut oil, castor oil, jojoba oil, olive oil and shea butter depending on what my hair needs. Sometimes I make a mixture of different oils and apply that instead, not forgetting eucalyptus oil, which helps with itching. When I feel my hair needs it, I deep condition with yogurt or mayonnaise, and sometimes do an apple cider vinegar rinse.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
To know more about me you can visit my blog at, though I don’t have any new updates due to recent priorities.

:’) such a simple regimen. Not sure of her hair type but it’s so thick and lush. I can’t imagine how I will ever simplify like this. I’m interested in eucalyptus for the scalp. I’ve tried tea tree oil but it doesn’t do anything for me.


Love your style!! Does anyone know if the red dress is from Asos?
