Versatility Beauty&Fashion have had the chance to interview Sarah Desai, who has joined the Healthy Movement with Versatility Beauty&Fashion. In this interview Sarah shares her thoughts about the ideal of beauty, the movement of natural hair and more.
Who is Sarah Desai?
I am a 80s kid living in Berlin, a Master of Arts, an enterpreneur in the music industry and a passionate truth seeker.
How would you describe your inner Beauty?
I would describe myself a passionate soul. I follow the mantra. “Do it with passion or not at all“.
What do you love about your beauty?
Watching people taking the full ride is a very beautiful thing, even if it means that they sometimes struggle by pushing boundaries and leaving comfort zones.
Every girls dream is to become famous in entertainment industry. As we all know in the modelling and fashion world is a very hard industry and is not as glamorous as it may seem to be. Four years ago, the documentary called “The Color of Beauty” about an African Canadian model named Renee who’s struggling through New York’s top agencies in the hopes to be a part of New York Fashion Week 2008. Furthermore, in the documentary a model agent uttered that if they ever hire a black model she has to look like a white girl dipped in chocolate. What are your thoughts about the mentality they have in the fashion industry?
Wow! I can’t believe that we have to discuss that in 2016.
What do you love the most when it comes to your beautiful hair?
I do not need to spend more than 2 minutes on styling.
What three things would you recommend for women with curly/coily hair?
- Try to wear it natural as often as possible.
- Only comb it while it’s wet and has moisturizer on it
- Drink a lot of water
What three things would you not recommend women with curly/coily hair?
- Never ever blow – dry
- Avoid chemical products
- Slay the Image of a bad hair day
In 2011 Versatility Beauty&Fashion interviewed the famous natural hair stylist Felicia Leatherwood. One of the questions Versatility Beauty&Fashion asked her was what she thought about the trend amongst women with coily or curly hair becoming natural. She responded that in her perspective becoming natural is not a trend, but more as a movement. Do you agree or disagree with Felicia Leatherwood statement about becoming natural is a movement?
Yes, I definately agree! We are bored of human screens painted by the concepts of the beauty industry. Character and authenticity are the new beauty standards. Beauty is no object, it’s human!
2013 was the year when the ideal of a woman body strong is the new skinny. VersatilityBeauty&Fashion is pro-health and believes that working-out is the best medicine you can ever give to your body and soul. But some women are taking it to the extreme and most women (and unfortunately teen age girls) are inspired to use a work out method, which is to manipulate or enhance the body to become hourly-shaped that many celebrities are promoting on social media instagram such as Amber Rose, Lindsay Lohan, Kim Kardashian West and her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashion. What are your thoughts about today’s attitude of the ”new” ideal of a womans body?
We get so worried about being pretty. Let’s be pretty smart and pretty kind – to ourselves and the people surrounding us!
How often do you work out/ how often do you think one should work out to feel good?
I am practising yoga 4 times a week. Sometimes I add some HIT training. Sports should always have a higher purpose than just being in shape. Physical exercise is very important to any kind of brain and mindful work .
The Healthy movement with Versatility Beauty&Fashion is a campaign where we want to inspire women around the world to set goals for achieving healthy hair, healthy body and healthy soul(inner beauty) this year of 2016. If you would like to join the movement what would your goals be to achieve healthier lifestyle in 2016?
Going further in my yoga practice and dance more.
No goals. Maybe I am going to cut my hair.
Healthier soul (inner Beauty)
Being more creative, establishing a daily meditation routine, participating advanced training: for e.g. I just attended MIT’s Ulab course “Leading from the emerging future“.
In which social media can one find you?
