Curls in Corporations Q&A
MSC: Why is this topic (curls in the work setting) important to you
Jisely: we shouldn’t be forced to tame our hair, to comfort someone’s idea of what is professional or what is suitable for a business. We should empower, and support and influence each other to be proud of our Curls.
MSC: can you talk about what it’s like rocking your natural hair in your industry?
Jisely: It’s freeing, I’m around a lot of the same style so I’m not looked at differently or odd
MSC: Do u consider the natural hair community a trend/wave?
Jisely: I’ll say is a staple… it will always be in. The luxury of having curly hair is, we can straighten it, style it, any new trend that comes by.
MSC: Why is this important to you.
Jisely: It’s who I am, my hair is me, that is how I’m described and remembered, by my curls
MSC: What influence has it made in your life/work
Jisely: Life, if anything made me appreciate my roots/history… I remember when I was 16 and got my hair straightened and my mother told me I didn’t look pretty, at 1st I was offended that my mother would call me ugly… but later figured out that she preferred me and found me beautiful with my curls that she gave me.
MSC: How do you incorporate this with Su_ella
Jisely: Su Ella is for Latinas by Latinas… my hair makes me relatable.
& how @su_ella came about…
