DJ Sloane Sophisticate is known by her friends for moving to her own hair beat. The army brat was born in Washington State, raised in Germany, grew up in Colorado but now calls Brooklyn home. By day, she works in the Advocate’s office for the city, but by night, this mother of three is an internet radio show host and a NYC dj!!
With a half-shaved head, a scalp tattoo and a shock of white hair, Sloane Sophisticate was an easy choice to give hair props to. Check out her hair inspo below.
Hype Hair: What or who is the inspiration behind your current do?
Sloan Sophisticate: I wanted a color that I hadn’t seen and I wanted it in a texture that reflected mine. White hair isn’t easy to find here, so I had to order it from the UK.
HH: Who does your hair?
SS: I do my own hair as far as shaving and crocheting, BUT I have someone else do the cornrowing underneath.
HH: What are your favorite products to use?
SS: I love Giovanni Smooth As Silk Deeper Moisture and I use it as a leave-in. To seal, I use Vatika oil which is an Indian mixture of different ayurvedic oils. It makes my hair feel lovely and it’s ultra-moisturizing. I also use a black castor oil hair food that contains coconut oil and Shea Butter, for my scalp.
HH: What hairstyle would you like to try that you haven’t tried yet?
SS: I’ve pretty much tried out every hairstyle that you can think of. When I’m done experimenting, and changing my style every month, my final hairstyle will be free form locs.
HH: Why free form locs?
SS: I love what it represents! I am a free spirit and my hair will reflect that. I will let my beautiful strands grow and clump, lock and spread out as they wish. Just like me!
