This is my first ever interview for The Sugar Honey Ice Tea.  So excited! 
I met Grace at a church play last month.  Her twist are beautiful and the color really looked lovely on her.  She's of Nigerian/African-American descent with three sisters and two older brothers. Grace is currently pursuing a degree in biochemistry with aspirations of becoming an ob/gyn.  Here is her interview to better understand her style.

Much Love & Fashion Fun,

Tea Todd

1. Why did you choose your current style & the color?
I chose to do kinky twists because I absolutely love to style them. They last a pretty long time, I can style them differently nearly every week if I wanted and they tend to look their best when they’re old. I love twists so much that I’ve had nearly every color in my head. I tend to like highlights, so looking at the selection available in the shop I buy my hair from, I chose a 1B and a burgundy color.

2. What brand of hair do you use?
I typically use Bobby Boss Synthetic Afro Kinky twisting hair. I’ve also used Booby Boss Synthetic Jamaica Braid hair as well. It just all depends on the color I’m looking to put in and what’s available in the Beauty Shop I purchase my hair at.

3. What products do you use to keep your hair looking hot?
I don’t like to use too many products on my hair, since it will typically cause my hair to get oily. I just simply spray a little oil sheen and maybe use some Edge Control to maintain my front edges.

4. How long have you had this style?
I had this particular style for about 3 months. I love getting kinky twists because the style, if properly maintained, can last and still look good for a good amount of time.

5. Who is your (hair) style icon?
I actually don’t have a hair icon in particular. My sister who’s a hairstylist tends to suggest and inspire styles she feels would suit me best. I also love to draw some of my hair ideas from Sophisticate’s Black Hair Magazine, while adding in my own personal twists and spins, from time to time.
