Introducing: Melissa Chanel

I actually discovered Melissa through Instagram, my friend liked her picture and it popped up in my feed. The first thing I noticed was beautiful natural hair and as a natural, I went to her profile to get some inspiration. Inspiration I did find, not only does she have beautiful hair, Melissa also have Fab style. I noticed she had a blog and right away I decided to add her to my blog roll. It is my pleasure to introduce the naturally fabulous Melissa Chanel. 

So tell us more about yourself, who is Melissa Chanel? 

I am only 5''2 but with huge dreams, I love to laugh, and very outgoing. I think my blog is me just as it says, MelissaChanel, "Where Fashion meets Natural Hair" I cover all things fashion and natural hair from my style, closet must haves, product reviews and hair styles. MelissaChanel is all about staying true to you and loving the skin you're in!

How did you get your start in blogging?

I started MelissaChanel after getting messages from women who wanted to transition to natural hair...asking me about products they could use or what was my go to style while transitioning. I would also get facebook or twitter messages asking "Melissa ...should I wear this with this...or what can kind of shoes could I wear this with." So my friends would always tell me you should start a blog for fashion and natural hair....and that was that, MelissaChanel was born!!!!!

What are three must haves a woman needs for her closet?

A white button up, a black blazer and a pair of black leggings

Who are your style icons, where do you get your inspiration?

I'm really in love with June Ambrose and the risk she takes with her style and colors! She is EVERYTHING to me when it comes to FASHION. I also love Rihanna's style and Angela Simmons. I'm more of a funky dresser...I love when people say..."Only you can pull that off Melissa!" I get inspiration from magazines, colors, shoes, words...the list goes on!

What trends/looks are enjoying wearing this Spring?
 COLOR BLOCKING... I loves it!

You are what I consider "naturally fabulous", you have such gorgeous natural hair! Do you think your hair influences your style?

 Awww thank you soo much! Yes I def think my hair influences my style. I love for my natural hair to be wild and funky...which matches me!!!  It also helps me to take chances with different things that I wear.
