In the past three years I have acquired so many friends via social media. Although I’ve never met Lesley in real life, she’s totally my boo. Her natural hair is beyond swoon-worthy and how adorable are those glasse?! She’s like my twin on Instagram constantly giving good face and popping those curls of hers.
We chatted for a bit and I realized we have so much in common. She shared her bad day hair solutions, her worst hair memories, and a few products that I think you all will love. Check our interview below.
HelloBeautiful: Have you always loved your hair?
Lesley Billingsley: Up until the age of 22 I had a relaxer and I didn’t know anything else. I used to see girls with beautiful curls when I was younger and wished that my hair could do that. I had NO idea what my natural hair was capable of because my hair was never curly except for baby pictures. I chose to chop all of my hair off at the age of 22 and start fresh! Even after doing that its been a LONG journey for me to love my hair. During the months after my “big chop”, I had to deal with criticism from family that I was not expecting. I had to turn to YouTube, and other forms of social media, for support and styling help. Now, at the age of 27, I can proudly say that I L-O-V-E my hair.
HB: What are some of your bad hair day solutions?
LB: Water is the key to success for me! Wash-n-go’s are my favorite style. So if I don’t like what I see I just dunk my hair in some water and go!
HB: And your worst hair moments or memories?
