Sonja Wanda model and natural hair salon owner pushing the natural hair movement in Norway. Find out for yourself why this cover girl decided to open Pretty Roots Wanda natural hair salon in Norway.
1. What’s the natural hair movement like in Norway?
The natural hair movement in Norway is most definitely here, but not enough knowledge about how to care and maintain the natural hair.
Why did you decide to open a natural hair salon Pretty Roots Wanda?
Before Pretty Roots Wanda there was Afro Hair 2000 my mother Natalina Wanda started. It is and was the 1st afro hair salon to open in my hometown Fredrikstad. I was going to participate and work there, but during my gap year modeling took over. I learned a lot about hair in the fashion industry, but for most of the time, I was the one who had to make my hair manageable to work with for shoots. I decided to keep the legacy and come back with great products that work.
As a model how do you deal with your hair at a fashion show and photo shoots?
Modeling can be stressful on your hair. I would have to relax and weave my hair almost every other month.
What are your fashion must have’s?
My current fashion must-haves are dresses by Misha Collection, minimal animal, and skincare by Auriege Paris, they have an excellent tan lotion with sweet vanilla, I love it!
5. What music are you listening to right now?
I’m listening to a bit of Aloe Blaak, soulful house music, jazz, Jazzanova, Sade, John Coltrain, Bebel Gilberto, and Amel Larrieux
The natural hair movement is real. Bye Bye Parabens continue to encourage African American women to wear your natural hair. Join the movement.
