Lachanda you are based in Los Angeles, correct?
Yes, I’m based in LA. I’m a freelance artist that travels all over the US creating. I hope one day to travel the world doing what I love and being even more inspired by all different cultures.
Who or what inspires your hair creations?
My inspiration comes from being able to transform.
Taking a blank canvas and turning it into something magnificent like I do with Art, being an Artist helps because my ideas and creativity are endless. I love when I have full creative freedom, I go into my zone and that’s where the creative juices start to flow.
What are your favorite styling tools and products at the moment?
I cant live without my curling wand and dry bar curlers. I find myself leaning towards natural based products, I love Moroccan Oil luminous and spray for hold.
