I looove your hair. If I wanted to dye my hair like yours what do I tell the salonist?

Thank you! It would depend on which picture you’re looking at lol. In terms of blondes my colors are always Clairol Professional colors and range from medium ash blonde to a very pale arctic blonde. I go for cool colors because my natural hair is very black with red undertones. I’m also a double processed blonde… I bleach my hair first and then dye it. It’s very damaging so proceed with caution! 😘

Attention DC!! I’ll be having my very first trunk show for my t-shirt & apparel line @dopeciety on August 16, from 2-8pm at @nubianhueman and… you’re invited!!! There will be loads of new items you’ll ONLY be able to purchase at this event including the debut of my new vintage line #TheAustinCollection which features hand-picked vintage from an abandoned dress shop in New Orleans! DJ QueenZeb, aka my boo @borabond, will be in the house curating sounds as you shop and socialize! This will also be my official going away party (I’ll be in New Orleans permanently shortly after) so be sure to come through and say goodbye if nothing else! πŸ˜‰β€οΈπŸ˜˜

Sleeping Achilles 2014 (Draft)

I watch his shoulder rise and fall,
a crest amongst the waves
of whistled breath
escaped from parted teeth.

See my lover
his curls
greying at the temples
the sharp angles of his face,
a mountain range atop pillow top
the partial laugh line
that permanently hugs his lips
like a comma
in the poetry of his face.

My eyes dart between
the man in my bed
and his mirrored self lying
behind the looking glass.
I wonder what he is dreaming
and if he knows
the sad beauty of
his quiet vulnerability.

Yesterday I just walked around without headphones enjoying people and conversations. I’ve meet some interesting individuals within the past 24 hours.

Most people are so quick to plug in their earphones or turn the other cheek to avoid hearing or seeing things they personally think is morally…

You make perfect sense ❀️
