Natural Rockers You May Not Know But Should: Leslie
1. Tell me a little about yourself.
My real name is Leslie, but everybody call me Dydy, I’m 33 years old, I live in Paris, I’m a Personal Assistant in an assurance company, but I’m a natural hair lover and I decided to become a HairStylist, And it’s almost my NappyBirthday (10 sept 2012) 2 years natural 🙂
2. What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
I decided to become natural, first because I was relaxed for 20 years and I wanted to to see my natural hair. So I decided to first, transitioning during 2 months and then I BigChopped. The first year I was so excited I felt in love with my hair, I discovered another me, I can say that I finally found myself… the second year I made this amazing Red Hair Color, and since I did it, I can’t change 😉
I was inspired by Felicia LeatherWood, I love everything about her, I follow her for years, and I had the big opportunity to met her @ The Natural Hair Academy In Paris (THE Natural Hair Event of the Year in France) She gave me the opportunity to participate to her show and do hair with her @ the NaturalHairAcademy, since that day and because of her I want to realize my dream be a Natural Hair Stylist. Felicia is an amazing source of inspiration, amazing natural hair stylist and a beautiful person I love her <3
