What is your style philosophy?
R: Wear what you like and own it.
How would you describe your sense of style?
R: I enjoy combining vintage pieces with high end pieces. I love thrift and vintage shopping.
What is the process of deciding what to wear in the morning?

How and why did you transition into natural hair?
