DJ Kiss

celeb media 3-14-kiss-1Jakissa Taylor-Semple (a.k.a. DJ Kiss), is one of the most in-demand DJs in the country. This fab stylista sat down with SBH to talk all things glam…

celeb media 3-14-kiss-2On top of being a DJ, DJ Kiss is also a fashion and beauty blogger at XOXO. What’s the inspiration behind her blog? “Just to have a voice in fashion and beauty. I’m a consumer of both and I feel like blogging in general lets people have their own spin on things. Also, with fashion, I really needed an outlet. If I didn’t have a blog, I would probably buy everything!”

I’m generally known for my middle part and kind of a soft wave. I also always wear my hair dark. It’s the look I think is most flattering for my face for my features.”

DJ Kiss switched up her look for an SBH photo shoot with two looks by celebrity hair pro Hadiiya Barbel. “The whole shoot was totally different! I’ve never really worn wigs—especially not ones that are totally different from my look. I really liked the two styles and I think wigs are a great way to experiment—to get comfortable with a style before you actually take the plunge. They give you a lot of versatility really quickly.”
