I had the pleasure to work with Salaina for bysstudios a while back in July 2015. After texting back and forth for about 9 months we finally found time in our busy schedule to link up.
  1. Salaina, sally, young Beyoncé, or whatever you know her as is a fun, confident, and beautiful girl. When Salaina is not busy working as a hairdresser she likes to dance, travel, and be herself.
  2. Salaina is a big Pharrell fan, just like I am (she dislikes the fact that I call Pharrell my dad.) With that being said, I had to get her on board with some Pharrell pieces: Pharrell x adidas x i am other, Pharell x Uniqlo x i am other, Pharrell x i am other (left to right)
  3. Salaina at the studio. What do you think her ethnicity is?
  4. Later that same day we went to Little Tokyo in Downtown Los Angeles to shoot. To see the rest of the images go to
  5. A few weeks after our shoot, Salaina's picture taken at bysstudios was uploaded by none other than @i_am_other official twitter account and was used as their first ever #fanfriday image... You have no idea how happy I was.
  6. I hope to work in another shoot with Salaina sometime soon, I wish her the best. She will always be my young Beyoncé and a very special friend.
