    Lynn Kim Do

    Lynn Kim Do may be the first fashionista to define and coin the term Neckbreakin’ Style but she is certainly not the only person that this term encompasses. Lynn takes inspiration from the street, from the mundane and thus her extraordinary everyday experiences, and presents it rawly along with visuals and personal style. This is a platform beyond personal style. It is a space of personal experiences. Lynn Do creates a platform that curates her very honest, sometimes too honest, stories called "Street Talk" with style that is also uniquely raw. Having footprints all over the United States, her view of fashion can not be defined by one location or even one style except one - streetwear. She believes in minimal and clean streetwear without losing all the attitude and sass with it. Her visual and production expertise has accumulated many highly recognized repertoire of projects with clients like Revlon and Urban Outfitters. She has been featured on Nylon.com, The New York Times, and WWD to name a few. If you ask her though, her biggest personal achievement is surviving a year lease in a six floor walk-up NYC apartment.

    The New Do (all puns intended)


    Q -"What made you cut your hair?" 
    A - "Um, because I want to look like a BOY!"

    Who did this amazing hair transformation and Why I really cut my hair? 











    Hair - Kristan Serafino // Jacket - J. Crew // Jeans - Vintage // Chuck Taylor - Converses // Teardrop Earcuffs - Noir // Toscano East/West Tote - Patricia Nash

    I've teased you long enough, my digital friends! I've only revealed this dramatic new do to my own mother a few days ago, so you're no too behind from my blood. No FOMOs allowed. I really have to thank my dear friend and crazy talented hair guru - Kristan Serafino. Her client roster is insane with the likes of Norman Reedus, Ryan Reynolds, Elizabeth Berkley, and countless famous heads. So when I had the crazy idea of chopping off these locks, I entrusted my entire head within Kristan Serafino's hands. I barely trusted my last hair stylist when she cut off my hair into a long bob. I sure faked it until I made it out of there. And it was painless, I'm just dramatic. But place a very dramatic soul-searching twenty something year old in front of Kristan Serafino, give a crazy assignment like chop my whole hair off, and there's no exact predictable outcome here. Of course, the outcome will always be brilliant but all the stuff in between is hazy. Long story short, she made a potentially very dramatic hair cut into a hang out filled with laughter. Her lasting words? "I always described haircuts as such - talk, whisper, and shout. And this is definitely a SHOUT!"

    Damn right it is. It's the only way I know how to do things.

    So I know what you're thinking and it is generally the first question that leaves my friend's mouth - 
    Q -"What made you cut your hair?" 
    A - "Um, because I want to look like a BOY!"

    No, the real answer is that I don't have an answer. This certainly did not come out of no where. I've wanted this pixie cut even before I had the bob cut. I took it slowly as many of my wise friends' have suggested. I played around with the idea. I looked for validation. I asked my friends and family. I started a Pinterest Board on pixie cuts. I stalked celebrities. I battled on whether or not I had the face structure for it. And you know what, I never received any of those validations. Because you can never get that sign or symbol from god to tell you what decision to actually make. And no one can give that to you either. Although that one person that will love you no matter if you look like a boy or a girl can be reassuring. At the end of the day, you should just do it and figure it all out later. 
    That's exactly what I did! And I don't regret a thing.
