U: My name is Uzy! I am 18! I am a Nigerian but I reside in London.
What is your style philosophy?
U: Dress like your going to see your arch enemy.
How would you describe your sense of style?
U: Individual and unpredictable.
What is your process of deciding what to wear in the morning?
U: I check the weather first! Then I usually pick out my shoes and the rest falls into place.
What are the three favorite things in your closet?
U: This is a hard question! I really cannot pin point my favourite items, I love too many to decide!
What are some of your favorite shops/websites for clothes, shoes and accessories?
U: My favourite for shoes has to be zara! They have great shoes which are reasonably priced, my favourite for clothes has to be vintage and charity shops because I find very unique items and I think it’s nice to have original clothes, I don’t like having clothes which everyone owns because I believe that reduces the amount of time in which you would be able to rock the items as they would eventually go out of trend!
How long have you been natural?
U: I have been natural for 1year and 7months now… I big chopped on December 27th 2011.
How and why did you transition into natural hair?
U: I didn’t transition, my decision to go natural was so sudden, My friend and I watched a naturallycandi video on YouTube and a couple days later we decided to take our weave out and chop our hair, I was too impatient to transition.
What is your signature hairstyle?
U: BOXBRAIDS!! I love them so much , I’ve had them in throughout my natural hair journey, they are a great protective hairstyle!
