Happy Monday! 

It's been a while and I'm so happy to be back. School's out for me and my summer has started which means more content! Yay! Enjoy this new #ManeCrushMonday.

Here's a snippet into Cyrena's life:

"I’m a tall girl, with natural hair, who loves style!  Just out here trying to make my own little piece of the pie." -Cyrena Monique

Mane Crush Monday- Cyrena

Mane Style: How long have you been natural?

Cyrena: I’ve been natural for 10 years now!

MS: What are your go-to hairstyles?

C: My go-to hairstyles would be a slick low bun, or a wash & go.

MS: Do you have any holy-grail hair products?

C: Hmmm, my hair absolutely loved Shea Moisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus products.  However after their recent advertising debacle I’m on the hunt for something else.

MS: Describe your personal style?

C: Do I have to?  I don’t have a name for it, and I never think of it until this question comes up.  Erm, I would have to say it’s easy, and versatile.  I love the basics, and I love to elevate them with a statement piece or two.

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

C: At the moment, not many, as I’ve put myself on a spending ban.  However, I love H&M Trend, and my special market dude where I find a ton of hidden gems.

MS: If you couldn’t live without one thing in your closet what would it be?

C: Jeans!!!

MS: Does your outfit for the day reflect how you wear your hair? Or vice versa?

C: Sometimes it does for sure, there are things that I feel a wash & go just won’t go with.  Equally, the same goes for my slick low bun.

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

C: Only three??? First of all, Naomi Campbell - need I say more?! I would love to have Tracee Ellis Ross in my life, she would 100% keep me level headed, stress free, and full of laughs.  She seems like such a wonderful person to know! I love Solange Knowles and Kourtney Kardashian, because they’re both unapologetically themselves and are not pressured to try hard to please others.  This is reflected in their style (which I also love!) they equally both always looks comfortable in their own skin. And for the bonus I also love Kimora Lee Simmons; doing it all and killing us with it!

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

C: Don’t try to fit in, just be yourself and carve your own way.  What makes you happy?  Do that.  Apply that to everything!

Mane Style: How can we connect with you? (Social media pages, blogs, etc.)
