A. I began making the custom phone cases after I lost a dead end search for my own custom case, soo.. I decided to make my own and it picked up ever since then!
A. All of the designs are custom, however some started from my own likes and inspiration to create the initial design.
What distinguishes me from other brands is that, I make what the customer wants, and I work with them throughout the entire process to ensure that they are completely satisfied.
Q. How long have you been natural? Did you transition or did you big chop?
A. I will be three years natural at the end of June! 🙂 I did a pretty big chop and transitioned the front of my hair (about an 1ch long)
