What We Can Learn From Embracing A “Label-Free” Mentality

In an interview with GQ magazine in 2012, Frank Ocean articulated one of the most compelling and groundbreaking responses to the question “are you bisexual?” without uttering a “yes” or “no.” Instead of declaring his sexuality in the form of a single word, he dismissed the arbitrary question and turned the conversation to a much more important one about our society’s obsession with labels.

“I’ll respectfully say that life is dynamic and comes along with dynamic experiences, and the same sentiment that I have towards genres of music, I have towards a lot of labels and bos and shit,” Ocean told GQ. “I’m in this business to be creative…as a writer, as a creator, I’m giving you my experiences. But just take what I give you. You ain’t got to pry beyond that. I’m giving you what I feel like you can feel. The other shit, you can’t feel. You can’t feel a box. You can’t feel a label. Don’t get caught up in that shit. There’s so much something in life. Don’t get caught up in the nothing…vanish the fear.”

Earlier this summer, actress-model Cara Delevingne made a similarly empowering response to a Vogue article written about her in which she felt the author suggested that her sexuality was “just a phase.” Delevingne, whose Twitter bio reads “STOP LABELING, START LIVING,” has also recently opened up about her sexuality online and in various interviews. “My sexuality is not a phase,” she told The New York Times. “I am who I am.”

As the media continues to revolve around who’s labeling themselves this and who’s labeling themselves that, I find it refreshing to see influential celebrities willing to ditch the labels altogether. After all, a recent YouGov survey revealed that 1 out of 3 Millennials don’t identify themselves as just straight or gay. In a society where LGBTQ+ issues remain at the center of controversy and debate, it’s clear that young people are at eager to start a label-free movement towards happiness and acceptance for all.

While the transition towards a world without labels is certainly a positive one, it’s important to recognize that labels of sexuality aren’t always considered negative or demeaning. For many people, declaring their sexuality within a label can be an important part of the coming out process. Take Miley Cyrus, who recently revealed to ELLE that she is pansexual and continues to embrace her sexuality in dramatic, public and empowering ways (look no further than her latest album).

The moral of the story here is that, in the end, your sexuality is about you and you only. Whether you decide to positively embrace a label or ditch it because it’s bringing you down, it’s about doing what is best for you.

On an even broader scale, looking at labels of sexuality is a great way to become increasingly aware of the countless other labels and stereotypes that surround us. It’s important to constantly be conscious of the words we are using to identify others, and to ensure we are not using them in ways that negatively limit or categorize them.

Maybe this is just me, but I like the idea of approaching the people I meet with a “label-free” mentality. By stepping into new encounters with an open mind and a curiosity to learn, I find I am far more hesitant to make initial (and likely incorrect) judgments about others. If both parties are willing to approach each other in this way, then a positive and respectful conversation about labels (and just about anything else) can ensue.

If the courageous moves of Frank Ocean, Cara Delevingne and countless other individuals across the globe are telling of the future, then we could be moving towards a society that places much less emphasis on labels and much more focus on just being whatever you want to be. And what’s wrong with that?

No Hair, Don’t Care: Fashion’s Freshest Faces Are Embracing the Buzz Cut

shaved head models ruth bell

Shockwaves went through the fashion industry in the early nineties when Eve Salvail first appeared on the runway with a shaved head, her head bare save for a curled dragon tattooed on her scalp. Her hair, or lack thereof, stood in direct contrast with the lengthy, ultrafeminine locks of the era’s supermodels—think Christy, Cindy, Naomi, Stephanie, and long, swingy sheets of hair. Two decades later and long hair is still the default for new models, whose agents praise its versatility: With fashion shows and editorials requiring models to be quick-change artists, longer hair can more easily lend itself to the required transformations. As a result, agencies have historically preferred that models play it safe. But the current fixation on models with “personality” has given rise to a set of beauties who follow in the footsteps of trailblazers like Salvail. African models like Grace Bol, Herieth Paul, and Ajak Deng have been wearing their hair super short for years, but only recently have their peers followed suit. Rising stars Tamy Glauser, Ruth Bell, and Kris Gottschalk have all embraced the buzz cut—and seen their careers skyrocket as a result.

Close-cropped hair has long been a signifier of punk rebellion and offbeat cool, so it’s fitting that designers who understand the importance of carefully curated edge have sought the models who dare to shear: Glauser is a regular at Rick Owens and on Nicolas Ghesquières runway for Louis Vuitton, while Gottschalk was tapped to model alongside the boys at Public School’s show at men’s New York Fashion Week, and Bell cut her chest-length strawberry blonde hair to front the latest campaign for Alexander McQueen. As it turns out, having a shaved head has become something of a savvy career move: It not only attracts cooler clients, it also serves to set a model apart from the hundreds of other girls on the scene. “There are hardly any other models with a shaved head,” says Gottschalk. “It’s interesting because other girls don’t really see me as competition—I don’t get those sideways glances at castings.”

Bell’s newly shorn hair also helps to differentiate her from her twin and fellow model, May. Born and raised in Kent, England, the sisters began their fashion careers together often photographed as a pair—they even share an Instagram account. Since her pixieish Paul Hanlon buzz cut, Bell has been carving out a niche for herself, working with the likes of David Sims and Lachlan Bailey and, yes, forming her own social media account—one filled with shots of her as a moody, punkish gamine, rather than the more traditional, whimsical images that fill the account she and her sister share.

Glauser, likely one of the originators of the current buzzed-off trend, got her fade from a friend. “I had been talking about wanting to cut my hair forever, but I was too scared,” admits Glauser. “One day my friend just picked up scissors and cut my hair right down the middle—there was no going back.” Over time the look became Glauser’s signature: Occasionally the color will change—earlier this month she debuted a platinum hue—but the length rarely varies. Though she’s benefited from her now-trademark daring do, Glauser cautions those attempting to emulate it. “[Shaving your head] is a risk, you never really know how it will look until that moment of truth.” Still, the model has no plans to revert to her old style. “It just feels too amazing short—I might let it grow a centimeter, then it’s time to shave again!”

Nubian Skin: Embracing Color

2015-08-19-1440021398-3272554-NubianSkinchair.jpg

This originally appeared on Mr. Refined Lifestyle Magazine, where Ronda is a contributing writer.

For years, women of color have struggled with the fashion and beauty industry’s lack of diversity in makeup, lingerie, and hosiery. Nowhere is this more evident than shopping for “nude.” Unfortunately, my shopping excursion left me feeling like the Buzzfeed video of black women trying on “nude” makeup, lingerie, and hosiery. Frustrated, exasperated, and annoyed best describe my experience.

Enter Ade Hassan, the entrepreneur and wonder woman behind Nubian Skin. “Nubian Skin launched with a carefully edited collection of lingerie and hosiery to provide the essential underwear needs of women of colour.” Not only do they offer a variety of skin tones, but this is sexy and feminine. After reading my article, Revisiting My Roots – Happy Nappy, I had a chance to speak to Ms. Hassan.

Mr. Refined: First, thank you for taking time to speak with me. I must say that I am enamored by your product. I love your motto: “Empowering Women. Embracing our Colour.” What was your inspiration?

Ade Hassan (AH): Thank you for the mention in your article. We’re a startup so our marketing budget is word of mouth. My inspiration was the general frustration of looking for nude pantyhose and defaulting to black because nude was not in my shade.

Mr. Refined: How did you get started?

AH: I left banking and was working as a consultant. It was 2011 and I was not particularly happy in the job. That is when I had the idea for Nubian Skin. I texted a friend and said, “I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up!” I knew that I would need to save a considerable amount of money to fund the business, so I went back to finance. However, working in the finance industry is incredibly demanding, and it’s nice making a good amount of money, so that was a bit of a distraction. When you’re buying designer shoes and going on fun holidays, it’s hard not to lose focus.

I couldn’t shake the idea even if I had wanted to. My mother was instrumental in making sure I kept my eye on the prize! She is my biggest cheerleader and helped me get back on track. She was in it for the pantyhose and never missed an opportunity to remind me that she needed them in her colour! In the summer of 2012, I spent about a month in New York and stayed with a good friend of mine. I had not told many people about the idea, but she went to Harvard Business School and I wanted to float some things by her. She thought the idea was brilliant. The following year, for my birthday, she sent me a card that said, “It’s time to start living the life you’ve always imagined.” The next day, I registered the company and trademark.

Being an entrepreneur isn’t quite as glamorous as it looks. Right now it definitely doesn’t pay like working in finance. It’s a sacrifice and was a big adjustment – I’ve had to get rid of my handbag habit.

Mr. Refined: The women in your photos are various shades of brown. I especially love the photo shoot with the models in curlers in salon chairs. It’s reminds me of Annie Lee‘s art, but with a modern take – sexy and fabulous. I immediately identified with the models.

AH: The idea came to me while I was at the Cheeky Parlour nail salon. The person doing my nails mentioned that they also did makeup and hair. I needed a makeup artist and hair stylist for the photo-shoot. I asked if they did photo-shoots. The inspiration took off from there. I did not want images that were hyper-sexualized. I wanted them to be identifiable, as you said, “That could be me.” I wanted to celebrate women of color. If you watch the behind the scenes video, you will see that each of the models have such great personalities. They were inspired by what we were doing and that shows.

Mr. Refined: I love the descriptions of the skin tone varieties. They make me smile and feel beautiful. Can you explain that process?

AH: During the creative stage, I had to keep a notebook on my bedside table as so many thoughts and inspiration came to me at night. Silly little things like the well-known phrase “the darker the berry the sweeter the juice” kept repeating, so I decided that Berry had to be the name of my darkest shade. The tones took a year to develop. There was no precedent. First, I went to makeup counters to match the tone. The swatches came back wrong. We needed to make sure the red, yellow, and blue undertones came through to show the differences in tones. There was a lot of tweaking.

Mr. Refined: How can readers support Nubian Skin?

AH: Simply talking about it with friends and on social media helps get the name out. Retailers operate on a “bottom-line.” If there is a demand, then they will supply it. So the next step is telling retailers, “We want this brand.” Request it.

We just ask that consumers be patient with us. We’re a startup and new company. We’re working on bigger cup sizes for the bras. We are constantly listening to customer feedback to improve the brand.

Mr. Refined: I know you ship globally. However, where can US readers find your product or request their favorite department store stock your product?

AH: We are currently in 15 Nordstrom stores in the US. Based on consumer demand, they will expand our brand to more stores. We need consumers to use their buying power and voices to let retailers know there is demand for our product.

In the upcoming weeks, our brand will be featured at Bra*Tenders, located in Midtown Manhattan. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram for details on the date, time, and location.

The Reaction John Kasich Got For Embracing Gay Marriage Shows How Far The GOP Has Come

WASHINGTON — Ohio Gov. John Kasich drew applause during Thursday’s Republican presidential debate for saying that he accepted gay marriage even though it was counter to his “traditional” views.

“Our court has ruled and I said we’ll accept it,” Kasich said in response to a question from moderator Megyn Kelly about what he would do if his child were homosexual. “And guess what? I just went to a wedding of a friend of mine who is gay.”

“Just because they don’t think the same way doesn’t mean we shouldn’t love them,” he added. “That’s what we’re taught when we have strong faith.” 

The crowd cheered Kasich’s response. The reaction contrasted starkly with a 2011 Republican presidential debate in which audience members booed Army Capt. Stephen Hill, a gay combat veteran, for speaking favorably about the repeal of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. 

“In 2010 when I was deployed to Iraq, I had to lie about who I was because I was a gay soldier, and I didn’t want to lose my job,” Hill said via videoconference during the debate. “My question is, under one of your presidencies, do you intend to circumvent the progress that’s been made for gay and lesbian soldiers in the military?”

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum responded to Hill by vowing to reinstate the ban on being openly gay in the military. “What we’re doing is playing social experimentation with our military right now, and that’s tragic,” he said, prompting cheers from the crowd.

“The military’s job is to do one thing, and that is to defend our country,” Santorum continued. “I believe this undermines that ability.”

Embracing Transgender Communication

Pronouns. America’s been buzzing about ’em since Caitlyn Jenner debuted on the July cover of Vanity Fair. Before her transition, Jenner told ABC’s Diane Sawyer to continue to call him (then, Bruce) “him.”

So what’s in a name?

My neighbor is mid-transition and we call her Hannah now, not Aaron. Another New Yorker I know has “Alfredo” on his birth certificate, and used to go by “Fredo,” but now self-identifies as “Frida.” Sometimes it’s confusing to use the preferred names and pronouns, to not accidentally offend, to respect people’s wishes — often as wishes are evolving.

Just knowing Hannah and Frida puts me in the minority — only 8 percent of Americans say they know someone who is transgender or gender non-conforming, compared to 84 percent who know someone gay, lesbian or bisexual. But having a personal connection is an important step in perspective and understanding. As transgender actress Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black) eloquently explained to Time last year, “When people have points of reference that are humanizing, that demystifies difference.”

Communications and the media are powerful vehicles, and as the conversation about the gender spectrum gets louder, communication pros need to hone their facility with talking — and writing, producing and Snapchatting — about it.

Bold Brands

Beholden to stockholders and stock prices, most brands follow the money — and that usually means the deeper-pocketed majority. It’s estimated that only about 0.3 percent of Americans identify as trans; the overall group experiences twice the rate of unemployment as the general population and is four times more likely to live in extreme poverty, surviving on less than $ 2 a day.

When luxury retailer Barneys New York launched its “Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters” campaign last year, it was laudable. Sure, they were tapping into a cultural trend in a category where expression is paramount — it’s fashion, not finance — but the group that they were featuring is routinely impoverished and probably couldn’t afford their apparel. The campaign debuted at Barneys with 17 transgender models and a PR bump through work with iconic photographer/filmmaker Bruce Weber.

Then, last June, Marriott International included transgender model and activist Geena Rocero in its #LoveTravels digital content campaign. Rocero had shocked the world during a March 2014 TED talk when she publicly revealed that she was “assigned a boy at birth.” Marriott didn’t shy away. Instead, they leaned in. A campaign spokesperson explains that #LoveTravels is “Marriott’s way of encouraging travelers to live their individual truths and share their travel experiences… providing each guest with a unique experience…where they feel welcome and comfortable.”

A time when most everyone feels uncomfortable are the teenage years — a target market for J&J’s Clean & Clear brand. This spring, they launched the “See the Real Me” campaign featuring trans teenager and activist Jazz Jennings, which not only caught the attention of the industry trades, but also consumer media. In her core campaign video, she says, “I’m just Jazz, being one of the girls.” The effort promotes J&J’s line of acne and skin care products by focusing its messaging around “girls having the courage to show who they really are, and what makes them unique.” And that includes transgender young women.

Media Coverage

It isn’t a secret that media matters in the growing LGBT — emphasis on the “T” — conversation. From Caitlyn Jenner’s ABC special to Laverne Cox on the cover of Time to the award-winning Amazon series “Transparent,” the trans community is stepping into the media spotlight.

Communication professionals should be willing to consider trans spokespeople and the community’s trends and needs across campaigns, media lists, social media influencers, events and sponsorships. Not sure where to start? GLAAD’s Media Reference Guide recommends, “If you are doing a story about women in tech or Mother’s Day, consider including a transgender woman in those stories. Transgender people can also be booked to talk about issues that are not trans-specific.”

Sometimes it’s as simple as remembering — in the midst of frenzied cultural, media and policy change — that people are just people.

Eckhart Tolle on Embracing Life’s Challenges

Eckhart Tolle discusses embracing the limitations life presents to us, instead of resisting the present moment. Challenges and difficulties are a natural part of life, but when we meet challenges with negativity we create more suffering for ourselves.

Crisis situations — personal or collective — offer us the possibility of opening to a new way of being in the world.
We can no longer believe the media’s message of fear– fear is an unconscious response that creates more negativity.

Change is absolutely necessary for the world to survive and evolve.

5 Strategies for Embracing Change

Few people thrive on change. In fact, most of us find change to be incredibly stressful. However, resisting change never works to our benefit. All of us know couples who have lost years of their lives because they didn’t leave marriages that were effectively over. How many of us have remained in jobs in which we were poorly paid and under-appreciated because the job was comfortable? How many people have secret dreams that they never fulfill because they are overwhelmed by the idea of dramatically changing their lives?

We tend to prefer the known to the unknown. The unknown is scary. So even though life might be better if we make a big change, we don’t focus on the likely positive outcome. We instead obsess over the tiny possibility that we could end up making life a whole lot worse.

But the only way to continually improve yourself and your life is to embrace – or at least not hate – change. To that end, below are some tips to give you the courage to change your life for the better.

1. Know That True Security Comes from Being a Person of Excellence: Very often we resist change because we fear losing either emotional or financial security. But the reality is that no relationship or situation is ever truly secure because we cannot control other people. As a result, marriages can fail, jobs can end, and savings can be lost, despite our best efforts. The only thing we can control is ourselves. So realize that the key to success is to consistently hold yourself to the highest standards. As long as you do your best in all things, from how you fold your laundry to how you perform your job to how you treat your family, change ultimately will work to your benefit.

2. Don’t Listen to Naysayers: Even if you change your life for the better, your friends and family may not support you. Why? People like the security of everyone around them staying the same. For example, a family will say, “Sally is the smart one, Jerry is athletic, and Bob is creative.” Even if Jerry gets his PhD in biochemistry, the whole family will ignore that accomplishment, and instead every Thanksgiving they will talk about how Jerry is a great tennis player. You have to ignore the boxes that people put you in, in order to be brave enough to do new things. Just because your family says you always have been great at math and should be an accountant, that doesn’t mean you don’t have The Great American Novel inside you. Resist the urge to satisfy everyone else’s need to have you stay the same, and be brave enough to change your life – even if no one supports you.

3. Visualize Change in a Positive Way: The fear of making a mistake is what keeps many of us from changing our lives for the better. That fear needs to be replaced with the expectation that change will improve our lives. Visualization is a key to creating this new outlook. For example, perhaps you are in a bad marriage. You want to leave, but the idea of being single is intimidating. Visualize yourself living on your own and being happy and successful. See yourself meeting someone with whom you have a deep connection and who treats you beautifully. That life is possible if you are willing to risk the discomfort of change. Or let’s say you are in a job where you work hard and are underpaid. Taking a new job will be challenging. You will have to prove yourself to a new employer. That is hard and uncomfortable. Visualize yourself being paid what you are worth, doing exciting work and being appreciated for your efforts. When you visualize a positive outcome, it will give you the confidence to move forward.

4. Strategically Plan for Success: When preparing to make a big change, don’t just sit back and hope for the best. Get your ducks in a row. The more advance planning you do, the more sure you will feel when you leave a relationship or job. If you are ending a relationship, decide what you are going to do to make the transition smoother. That may mean picking up a hobby to fill your free time, sorting out your financial situation or lining up support from friends and family. When leaving a job and starting a new one, make sure you build time into your schedule for studying and extra rest. The better a foundation you lay for the future, the more successful you will be after making the change.

5. Don’t Expect Perfection: Even if you make big changes and end up finding the person of your dreams or the ideal job, don’t expect perfection. Life isn’t perfect. Being single may be a whole lot better than being in a bad marriage, but being on your own has its challenges. Similarly, finding a terrific new spouse is a blessing, but no relationship is perfect. A great job can be incredibly rewarding, but any good job has some stress associated with it. The point of making changes in your life isn’t to achieve perfection. The point is to keep growing and to become happier and more fulfilled with every passing year.

Being afraid of change is understandable. But don’t let that fear prevent you from living the life of your dreams. We are meant to grow, improve and yes, change, into our best selves.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Is Embracing Pregnancy, And Her Growing Belly

Jennifer Love Hewitt is embracing her changing shape during her second pregnancy.

“I’ve been an actress for 25 years, and have had to be hungry at times for my career, so being pregnant is completely freeing,” Hewitt told American Baby for the magazine’s new issue. “When I was expecting Autumn, I ate everything I saw! I told myself, ‘Oh there’s a donut –- I should have that.’ Now with this second pregnancy, I know the baby really doesn’t ‘need it.’ So I eat healthy foods in general, but I also indulge in little things that I crave.”

“As somebody who’s been in this business for a long time and had to sort of be all about what your figure looks like, your regimen -– I think if you can let that stuff go and really embrace what you’re doing, you feel kind of awesome,” she added.

Hewitt is expecting her second child with husband Brian Hallisay. The two are already parents to daughter Autumn, 16 months. While she joked that being married to her is like “being married to Betty White” right now because she is in bed by 8:15 p.m., the “Criminal Minds” actress understands the importance of relaxation during this time.

“Because so many of us are busy or driven, we forget to take care of ourselves,” she said. “But when you’re pregnant, it’s all about you — and that baby inside of you. Enjoy a nap; for some reason our generation thinks we can’t do that! Really listen to your body. I hope to continue to be a little kinder to myself after pregnancy.”
