About Patrice Lechelle


Hi! My name is Patrice Lechelle, I'm a college student born and raised in Northern California, and I just recently started embracing my love for talking about all things fashion and beauty, especially hair. Throughout the years, I've tried my best to have a hand in both performance and visual arts, but creative and journalistic writing have always held the key to my heart. My hair became the unlikely teller of my story once I realized that every up and down in my life could be seen through my locs. From hard times leading to short cuts to purple hair ushering in my rebellious streak, my hair said it ALL. My goal is to use my knowledge and experiences to give my fellow Black women the best help, tips, and encouragement I can offer.
