Twitter handlewhyasmin
Hometown: Port-Au-Prince, Haiti
Favorite childhood hairdo: "Before gravity really had an effect on my curls, my mom used to just part it down the middle and give me two pom-poms held together with bobbles. I looked like Minnie Mouse and I loved it."
Secret styling weapon: "Garnier Fructis Super Stiff Gel; without this tool, my hair would be even more wild."
What do you love most about your hair?: "I love the fact that my hair really matches who I am as a person. People have called me 'the girl with the hair' so many times, that my hair is just another facet of my personality."

What drives you nuts?: "In general, the sound of crickets; but about my hair, specifically, the fact that if I don’t wash my hair every other day, I’ll end up with dreadlocks on the third day."
Dream 'do?: "I really love my hair down, but I do often dream about, when I retire, dreadlocking my long gray hair and letting it roam free in the outskirts of Paris."
What's a hair move you've always been curious about but have been afraid to try?: "Bangs! I know it wouldn’t work, but I wish I could just try it for a day."
If your hair had a horoscope, what would it be?: "The same as my real sign, a Leo, I have a lion’s mane, after all."
