Natural Rockers You May Not Know But Should: Mimi

1. Tell me a little about yourself.mimiirvin_3

My Name is Mimi Irvin “aka” Corporate Chic, located in Houston, Texas. I am 36, a wife, mother of two handsome boys, daughter, friend, and have been told a fashionista. Currently a Project Engineer by profession and by passion the creator of the blog Meye Label (pronounced MY Label) that inspires women that they can “Dress the Part, Shop Smart”.

I contemplated the idea of going natural in early 2011 and although I loved the relaxed looked and didn’t suffer much from breakage, I wanted something different. I was set forth to go on assignment in the Netherlands with my company in January 2012, so I decided December 2011 would be my last relaxer.

mimiirvin_12. What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?

Going on my assignment in Europe was like a new chapter in my life and with new chapters or new beginnings is change. I am accustomed to change coming from a military background and I felt it was time to live life for me and that meant knowing ALL of me. One way was to enjoy the hair that GOD gave me. So a new life change inspired me.

I tried many styles as I could during my transition, and 8 months was the end of that road. I decided to do my BC August 2012.

3. Top three products and prices.

Cantu – Coconut Curling Cream

Cantu – Coconut Milk Shine & Hold Mist

Cantu – Deep Treatment Masque

4. Fave go to hairstyle.

I love my “pin to the side” wash and go, or high bun during the summer time, and of course I enjoy just wearing my twist outs.

5. Have you tried hair shadowing?

No, I haven’t tried “shadowing” I think I would try it as long as there were no harmful chemicals.

6. Sum up your natural hair journey in three words.mimiirvin_2

Fearless, BOLD, and Confident

7. Any advice to the natural newbies?

Embrace your OWN natural curls and don’t caught up with trying to get your hair like everybody else’s. You have to find what works for you. It’s definitely good to get insight especially from You Tube (bloggers and Vloggers) or from your girls that maybe on the journey with you, but just don’t get encouraged.

Finish this sentence: I Rock My Natural because…

I Rock My Natural because I embrace WHO I am and LOVE doing it.
