Introduce yourself, what do you do?
My name is Sanne van der Ploeg, a 21 years old from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I am a very creative and ambitious girl, with big dreams. I started working on making my dreams come true when I founded TORNADEAUX.com in October 2016. TORNADEAUX.com is an online platform for women with the beauty and the brains, where it is all about chasing dreams in style. On the basis of articles and photos we hope to motivate and inspire our readers to start chasing their dreams, and to do so in style.
What’s your favourite thing about your work?
I love how TORNADEAUX.com is an outlet for all the things I am passionate about. Furthermore, I love to help and inspire people. When I hear someone followed advice I provided for in one of the articles, my heart starts pounding: best feeling ever! And another great thing is, I’ve met so many nice and inspiring people since I founded TORNADEAUX.com.
Are you natural or relaxed (is that your natural hair colour and texture)
Both my curls and colour are natural. In fact I never even once dyed it in my life.
What are your go to products?
Definitely stay-in conditioner! It really helps my hair get less frizzy – #lifesaver.
What is your all time favour hairstyle?
I love the ‘granny’ hairstyle. I love dyed grey hair, it is so dope! Unfortunately, I am not brave enough to go for it. My hair is my everything and I am afraid to mess it up.
What are your 3 top hair care tips?
Don’t straighten or curl your hair too often: using that kind off heat regularly messes up your hair big time.
Use a hair mask once in a while. It gives your hair a boost and it is an ultimate ‘me-time’ moment. Win-win situation!
If your hair gets really frizzy all the time, try stay-in conditioner. I bet it will work its magic on your hair as well!
Do you have a hair routine?
I wouldn’t really call what I do a routine. I am not that kind off girl who spends time on taking care of my hair every day. To be honest: I rather sleep a little while longer in the morning than getting up early to spend time in front of the mirror taking care of my hair. That’s why I usually wear my hair in a bun during weekdays. I tend to spend more time on my hair on weekends.
When I wash my hair, my ‘routine’ is as followed: shampoo → conditioner → stay-in conditioner → hair dryer → mousse → hairspray.
I try to wash my hair every three days with shampoo and conditioner, but I can’t say I always stick to that routine. I basicly wash my hair whenever I feel like it is needed.
Describe yourself in five words?
Creative, spontaneous, ambitious, open minded and stubborn.
What helps give you inspiration/motivation?
When exciting things are going on I always feel inspired and motivated. Besides that I get inspired by many things, like: the city life, music lyrics, movies, ambitious friends, love, pictures, etcetera.
What are the top three things on your bucket list?
Traveling around the world
Meet and greet with Rihanna
Living in NYC, LA and Miami for a while
