Black Women With Style: Amber Matthews

1. How do you normally style your hair? I normally let my hair air dry and puff up into a natural fro or put my hair in a wet or semi-wet high bun with leave-in conditioner when I want a more contained look fast.

 2. What products are must haves? My must have products are Organix Keratin Conditioner which works great as a detangler and Shea Moisture Curl and Shine Milk which is all-natural and smells great.

3. Have you always been natural or did you return natural? If so, what made you make the decision to go back natural? I went natural the summer of 2010 from having a perm since 5th grade which is about 11 years. During my freshman year of college I wasn't getting perms regularly anymore and it was going on 8 months when I decided to do the big chop. I've been experimenting with my unexpected curls ever since.

4. What made you want to start an online thrift store? The inspiration for the online thrift store was a love for quality vintage items and an all around unique style. It's like personal shopping for the masses to me.

5. What are your future goals/ plans? My future plans include re-branding my business and making my websites more user-friendly and informative. I have high standards for myself academically as I am a student, and becoming a successful entrepreneur with the help of some amazing mentors.

6. What motivates you? I am motivated by the standards I hold for myself and my drive for success. The only person that can hold you back is yourself. I believe in myself rather than doubt.

 7. Do you have some words of inspiration or a quote for the readers? I would like to say to the readers to continue to put out positive vibes into the universe and you will get them back. Always believe in yourself and what you have to offer. Be proactive about your own happiness :)
