What’s your hair type?
- Thick / Coarse
How often do you wash your hair?
- Every other day
What is your hair care routine?
My hair routine has definitely changed over the past few years, as I’ve tried and tested so many different products which I found work best for my hair! I was told to always shampoo twice, which I find is a life saver! So wash and condition my hair every other day. While I towel dry, I then discovered using the Wonder Balm tames my strands and use an oil or mask once or twice a week for extra help. I love taking time out at the weekends now to take care of my skin & hair. And with my busy schedule I will often carry around the Frizz Fixer in my bag so I’m able to refresh my hair.
What does a day in the life of Vanessa look like?
As I currently study at University, it is always based on what lecture I’m running to next. If I have a modelling job or need to create content for my Instagram I tend to travel into London, I then rush back for a lecture. I enjoy my fitness (funnily enough) so I will aim to make my boxing classes in the evening and run on the days I am more free. Most evenings I’m having to edit shots from that day...and I love that every week & day is different. It keeps me on my toes!
What’s ‘hair goals’ to you?
- Smooth, sleek and shiny or Big bouncy curls
What is your day job/ How would you describe what you do?
I’m a part-time model, content creator and interior design/architecture university student.
What inspired you to work in fashion?
Mine is slightly different, throughout my childhood my dad was a photographer so I grew up around creativity. I found myself playing sims 4/5hours a day building houses and that’s where I found my love for interior design. If I’m being honest my love for fashion was because it was giving me confidence and allowed me to express my personality. In interior design you hide behind your designs but I like how the fashion industry gives you that confidence boost, and meeting so many like minded people.
How did you get into this career?
I started out studying Fashion Graphic Design at FRA in London, in which I was then exposed to the industry straight away. I started writing makeshift blog posts, and shooting style in between classes which of course failed! It wasn’t until 2019, where I signed with a modelling agency and then focused on my social channel (where most of my events/ collaborations come from).
