#ManeCrushMonday w/ Tyyanna
Happy Mondays loves! I'm back again with another #ManeCrushMonday with the lovely Tyyanna! Enjoy
Here's a snippet into Tyyanna's life:
"Born in Atlanta, Ga. I am a junior at the University of West Ga, majoring in Sports Management. I am a lover of life and plan on living it to the fullest!"- Tyyanna
Mane Style: How long have you been natural?
Tyyanna: Surprising to most people, I have been natural my whole life lol. I used to wear my hair straight a lot so I guess most people thought it was relaxed. About 2 years ago, my freshman year of college I started to embrace my curls and now I prefer them over any hairstyle.
MS: What are your go-to hairstyles?
T: I have two go-to hairstyles but they are definitely wash-n- go and a low sleek bun. These are just two hairstyles I think I’ve perfected and I love the way they look. Well most times lol.
MS: Do you have any holy-grail hair products?
T: Uhhhhh…. I would say my Shea Moisture curl and style pudding and my ECO styler gel. I seriously use those two for every hairstyle. I love the way the curl and style pudding makes my hair feel and the ECO styler gel slays my edges lol.
MS: Describe your personal style?
T: I have never really thought of a way to describe my personal style. My clothes kind of reflect my mood for the day. I would say I am more of a minimalist in a way. I love neutral colors that I can pair with anything. I love black, white, gray, and nudes the most and sometimes a pop of color.
MS: What clothing store(s) could we find you in, mostly?
T: I am more of an online shopper because you can always find amazing deals. My favorite online site would have to be boohoo.com but I love Forever 21, and Old Navy.
MS: If you couldn’t live without one thing in your closet what would it be?
T: Probably my olive green bomber jacket. I love this jacket so much. I can literally wear it with anything I put on and it looks amazing!!!
MS: Does your outfit for the day reflect how you wear your hair? Or vice versa?
T: My hair mostly reflects my outfit of the day. If I’m not really feeling my hair that day I usually don’t want to get dressed. I’ll just throw on something comfortable with not much thought and call it a day.
MS: What is the inspiration behind your YouTube channel, Knowing Monet?
T: I actually changed the name to TyyannaMonet just because I wanted to start to make it more of a brand but I wanted to use it as an outlet. I’ve always been kind of closed off and more to myself so I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and do something that I know not many people would do. I wanted to put myself out there and just enjoy the experience. I also wanted to help inspire younger girls who may be plus size and just young women in general that if you have a dream and you have a passion for something to just go for it. You shouldn’t let people tell say that just because of your size or the way you look stop you from achieving anything. A lot of people looked at me funny and still do when I tell them that I have a YouTube channel and ask so many questions as to why I started it but not really in a supportive way but I just smile and keep it pushing.
MS: If you could share one piece of advice with readers, whether it be about style or hair, what would it be?
T: I had to learn that everyone isn’t going to see your dream and that’s okay because it’s not their dream to see. I just want my subscribers to take on that same attitude and be bold and beautiful and take on the world.
Mane Style: How can we connect with you? (Social media pages, blogs, etc.)
Tyyanna: You can connect with me on IG, Twitter, Snapchat and of course my YouTube channel at TyyannaMonet
