DJ Doowap Chats Personal Style, Sneakers and Her Trademark Hairstyles

"My sense of style is usually the thing that people are intrigued by, but I think they fail to realise that it’s the link between my hair and sneakers that make the overall combo so striking." - DJ Doowap

As we celebrate our collaboration with Karabo Poppy and we’re talking about hair, we linked-up with friend to the LAB, DJ Doowap. Known for her music, her collection of sneakers and her trademark hairstyles, Doowap represents everything we love about streetwear.

SL: Tell us about your personal style and the relationship between you have with your hair and self-expression?

DW: "Whenever I get a new hairstyle, I tend to find it difficult to harmonise it with my closet in the beginning, so I start by pulling out a pair of sneakers I feel drawn to, then start matching an outfit accordingly. My imaginative hairstyles come to me in dreams or whilst playing music and getting dressed. I make sure I have a variety of sneaker colourways and styles to ensure I am never limited for choice when I switch up my hair fortnightly.

DW: My sense of style is usually the thing that people are intrigued by, but I think they fail to realise that it’s the link between my hair and sneakers that make the overall combo so striking. I am so grateful to have a large variety of sneakers that will always be the cherry on top to any hairstyle or outfit I put together."
