#ManeCrushMonday w/ Helena

Happy Memorial Day!

Check out this week's #ManeCrushMonday, Helena all the way from London! Not only did her hair and style catch my eye but also her love for food. 

Here's a snippet into Helena's life:

"My name is Helena, I’m 25 from London. I am a Lifestyle blogger, Youtuber, curl guru & self-confessed Cake Queen. My obsession with all things food has initiated me to launch a foodie platform #TwoFoodWhores" -Helena

Helena: Since late 2012

MS: What are your go-to hairstyles?

H: My everyday style is a wash & go, I just style, pick and leave. At home I love a pineapple or when I really can't be bothered  or having a bad curl day or when it's close to wash day I love a top knot (high bun). 

M: Do you have any holy-grail products?

H: I absolutely LOVE the DevaCurl One Condition  Decadence Conditioning Milk! I've recently been sent some styling products from Curl Keeper and they are fast becoming my faves too.

M: Describe your personal style?

H: Quite minimalistic, I like monochrome and grey. At the moment I wear a hell of a lot of nude and branched out to pastel pink. I tend to stick to the relevant, on trend and timeless classics, and most of the time girly. 

M: What clothing store(s) could we find you in, mostly?

H: 100% Zara! Or behind  a laptop on Nasty Gal and Missguided.

M: If you couldn't live without one in your closet what would it be?

H: Leather anything! And culottes

M: Does your outfit of the day reflect how you wear your hair? Or vice versa?

H: I'm pretty boring with my hair but I definitely feel like an extra fashionista when my hair is in a top knot, it can compliment a really on-trend outfit so much.

M: Just for fun, who are your top three #WCW or just women who inspire you?

H: I love Gigi Hadid , she seems so much and her style if perfect. My two hair crush and #WCW are bwatuwant and lipstickncurls, they both are beautiful and have amazing hair! 

M: If you could share one piece of advice with readers, whether it be about style or hair, what would it be?

H: Wear what makes you happy and confident, whether that is hair styles or clothing. Embrace what your mumma gave ya and don't be afraid to be a little different.
