Going Natural presents Natural Styles by Thierry Baptiste
What is your earliest memory of doing hair?
Beauty school was very difficult for me, because we are trained on how to do “other” hair textures and the only thing that we learn about our texture is how to manipulate it.
So subconsciously I believe that I have always known how to do hair, I just didn’t have the opportunity to utilize my skills. IT CAME NATURALLY!
How, why and when did you get into natural hairstyling?
What is so special about natural, nappy, kinky hair?
I know the service industry is quite demanding. There are some nasty customers out there. So can you give us a few behavior tips and describe your ideal customer?
And the worst one?
What is your signature style?
Can you name one or more highlights of your achievements up until now?
Natural hair seems quite hip right now. Locs are everywhere, it looks like the afro is back. Do you think its just a fashion phase? That this will pass just like the afro in the 60s and as soon as the fashion is over we will all go back and straighten our hair again or do we really begin to embrace our natural hair?
And your motto is?
Thanks. The questions were very thoughtful and I enjoyed this.
