About le coil
le coil is a curated collection of natural hair imagery. As the founding editor, my goal is to showcase the diversity of natural hair in a bright, stylish and artful aesthetic. The series pairs street style photography with found inspiration to captures the spirit of contemporary Black culture, everywhere from Brooklyn to London. We've featured original portraits of some beloved artists including Solange Knowles, Corinne Bailey Rae, Franchesca Ramsey, Janelle Monae and many more!
The site was named one of the "45 Must Follow Tumblrs" by For Harriet and has been featured in Clutch Magazine, Vogue Italia Online, Curls Understood, and Essence Magazine. In 2012, I was honored as one of the Jezebel 25 for my work on le coil, as a part of the site’s 5th anniversary celebration.
