We had the good fortune of connecting with Blackdaliah and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Blackdaliah, what matters most to you?
Something I value is respect for others and yourself. I’m all for originality and being true to who you are along with respecting others for who they are.

I pride myself in treating everyone with kindness. This includes clients , potential clients , business partners , studio owners etc.

I respect others time , knowledge, beliefs, policies and procedures.

I treat people how I would want to be treated . So I give a lot of grace . However at the same time I don’t tolerate disrespect.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
At first I was a part of a team. I recently started to branch off on my own and it’s been the best decision ever. I feel like before you attach yourself to a team you have to first understand who you are and what you can offer.

This wasn’t an easy decision because I felt like I was letting go of something important to me . I felt defeated.

With help from my partner and friends I was able to focus on me and what I want as a creative and professional.

I’ve learned it’s ok to start new and fresh. It’s like being afraid of cutting off split ends not knowing your hair will grow back healthier and longer.

My brand is about being yourself and exuding confidence in everything you do.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.

I love Brunch !

I would take him/her to

Bistro Cafe
