Spotlight Series: D’Laun Montgomery

Montgomery (1)

 

D’Laun Montgomery has always had an eye for fashion. He grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago.  He is the co-owner of fashion boutique Lost and Found.

“I developed a passion for entrepreneurship because of the freedom it would give me… we are our own bosses.” There is a great deal of respect that comes with being a business owner, and a young business owner at that. Montgomery and his partners are definitely earning that respect.

Montgomery met one of his business partners in 2012, they were college roommates. He took interest in his style. “Marc was always at least 2 years ahead of fashion trends, and I admired his fashion sense.” Montgomery went from just admiring, to searching and really diving into the fashion scene.

The boutique has been in operation since November 15, 2015. He has no plans of stopping his train to success. He feels that fashion allows people to express their individualism, and rightly so. He has his future on his mind as he has been strategically moving forward with his business partners. Ultimately, he wants his store to become the standard for all retail. Working for other people did not give him the same satisfction as working for himself, and towards his own goals.

Montgomery has more than present satisfaction in mind, he is aiming toward generational wealth. “I want to start building generational wealth…I don’t have any kids now but I’m putting in 18-19 hours into my business regularly now so I can spend time with my kids later on in life.”

Montgomery’s major influences include Ralph Lauren, Greg Selkoe, Curtis Jackson, and Dame Dash. At just 24 years old he has accomplished so much and is looking to conquer so much more!

Protective Summer Hairstyles

Protective styles are an awesome way to be a lazy natural. While I try my best to stay on top of wash days,conditioning, and everything else that comes along with being a naturalista, it can be very time consuming. That being said, at the beginning of this summer I made a decision to wear my hair in protective styles all summer. I wanted to give my hair a break from heat styling, and give myself a break from having to twist my hair every night 🙄.  

In doing this, Pinterest has become my go to for cute hairstyles. Having my hair in braids for the past month has saved me so much time in both my morning and nightly routines. I actually get ready for work and have time to spare to sit and watch tv! Versus struggling to get my natural hair just right, and having to fly out the door to work. After taking down my first set of braids, I noticed my hair was a bit fuller. Not too much extra length just yet, but I’m sure it will come in time. It has also been a relief to not have a big afro in the heat! While it’s super cute, and I love my fro, I hate a sweaty scalp😷. I am planning to experiment a couple more times with braids, as well as a couple of molded ponytail styles!

What are you’re favorite protective styles? Let me know in the comments! 

Took 5 hours but I loved it!
