Phenomenal woman; she is a fierce hair stylist who creates such elaborate and innovative braid patterns and styles on clients such as Zoe Kravits to Beyoncé.

We asked Susy, the Brooklyn native, some questions about her work and this is what she had to say:

 What inspires your braided looks?

Well, God inspires me of course! He puts lots of ideas in my head. And everything I might see inspires me like Oreos can inspire me or the blue sky.

 What is the most important aspect of hair care that most people overlook?

People over look “LOVE” which is the most important ingredient. You have to do more than just take care of your hair! You have to love it as well.

Who are a few celebrities you want to work with?

I would love to work with Erykah Badu, Oprah, and Jennifer Hudson!

 What advice would you give young girls who would want to get into the fashion and beauty industry. Where should they start?

 First, you have to know your self and know your worth! Self-building is key before you get into the industry. Your identity and what you stand for is a vital key when you get into the industry”.

What is your take on Instagram glam beauty and natural beauty? What is your advice on how to appreciate yourself without all the glitz and glam?

 Of course natural beauty is the best but there is nothing wrong with a little bit of Glam! Meditate, appreciate the now, accept yourself and how you look. Just know that the outer doesn’t matter, it is what is inside that matter the most. Take care of your body, eat healthy, workout, and make yourself happy. DO things that will increase your confidence not decrease.
