ENTREPRENEUR - PRESENTER
We asked Shanequa, Genesis radio presenter on Monday nights, a few questions about her hair journey so far!
Can you relate?
What is your first hair memory?
When I was 5/6 living in Bristol, at school one day my friends who were twins of mixed heritage had their hair styled beautifully, the top half was in a bun and the bottom half was out flowing down nicely. The next morning I asked my mum to do my hair the same... She did, after persuading me not to as our hair was not the same. I went to school the next day realising that we indeed did not look the same and I chose styles to suit my own hair ever since
What hair style was your favourite growing up?
My sister was a hairdresser so any form of cornrows was my absolute fave! The more hair bobbles the better!
What hair style did you hate?
OMG! My mum would put a big doo do plait at the top and a big one at the back!
How old were you when you started doing your own hair?
As soon as I started secondary school. Which was the downhill spiral as straightening was the in thing.
Can you share a hair story with us?
Before going on holiday with a friend she was discussing different weaves to put in, I suggested that she should have her own natural hair and she responded with "No, I want to look good" This was a huge eye opener for me and it keeps me on the right track to loving and nurturing my own hair as I always want it to be the first and only option for looking beautiful.
