What’s your hair type?
How often do you wash your hair?
- A few times a week
What is your hair care routine?
My routine is simple and low maintenance, I’m always rushing around so I stick to the same few steps. I use shampoo & conditioner, then I always use a hair primer on towel dried hair. Once styled, I finish off with a Frizz Fixer which I will use to refresh my hair throughout the day. Since having my hair cut short, I’m taking more care of my locks and on quieter days I will use a nourishing oil to treat my hair.
What does a day in the life of Tuula look like?
Depends on the day of the week. One day I could be at home focusing on my illustration drawings and be in comfy clothes with ‘undone’ hair. The next day I could base myself in London. I tend to be travelling out of a suitcase that includes a few outfit changes for different shoots throughout the day. I often spend my evenings at work events or back at home relaxing! I love that my days can be completely different, I have free rein on how I plan my day.
What’s ‘hair goals’ to you?
Smooth, sleek and shiny
What is your day job/ How would you describe what you do?
Fashion illustrator and content creator
What inspired you to work in fashion?
I used to LOVE playing with dolls when I was younger, I was obsessed with dressing them! From the age of 10 I used to draw fashion illustrations and then my older sister studied fashion at University so knew it was something I wanted to follow in.
How did you get into this career?
It has been a complete whirlwind. I studied Fashion at London College of Fashion (LCF) but after two years I dropped out. It turns out that it was the best decision I have ever made. I did my own thing focusing on my art and had a part-time job, I then met with another influencer who inspired me to really focus on it and since I’ve been sharing my art on Instagram it is starting to kick off again.
