Choreographing became apart of my life when I was 17 and I became and I became an instructor. I am 25 now and it’s been a while but modeling has definitely shown me that my dancing days may not be over, so I am excited to get back in it.

Moroccan Oil and Loma are my favorite brands for curly hair.

4.What inspired you to be a hair stylist?

She’s so Nous! Meet Mae ~

 

Photo by Alanna Gilbert

1. Name?: 

Hi my name is Macon Chabot Mullinax and I go by Mae.

2. How old are you?:

I am 17 years old.

3. Where are you from?:

I am from the small town of Turlock, California in the heart of the Central Valley.

4. What is your dream pet? (It doesn’t have to be traditional!):

My dream pet would be an elephant. I would love to own an elephant sanctuary where breeding took place to ensure that they are around for future generations to be able to see and not just look of pictures in books of the creatures. Elephants are my spirit animal.

5. Where would you take your dream vacation?: 

My dream vacation would be to either Bali or Portugal. Both have jungles and sites to visit that are not overpopulated with tourists. Bali is a dream destination with all the wildlife to see, while Portugal is rich in history. I also would love to dive deeper into their cultures.

6. What would the title of your memoir be?:

The title of my memoir would be Modern Teenager. So many books now are painting pictures of the perfect high school experience, but I would use my journal to remember honest events that would be relatable and examples of situations that the average American teenager experience.

7. Have you overcome any of your fears?:

I consider myself very spontaneous and adventurous, with almost no real fears. However, my absolute phobia is rodents. I really do not like pet stores – going by that isle and I own a cat to insure there are no mice near me.

 8. What’s been your biggest achievement (so far)?: 

My biggest achievement so far would be graduating high school a year early with above a 4.0 GPA. School has always been a strong suit for me especially writing classes, English. Languages, and the Arts. My two favorite classes I took were Portuguese and Ceramics.

9. Is there a band/musician that you would drive across the country to see?:

I have been obsessed with Maroon 5 since I was seven. I would die to go backstage and meet them. I swear I know every song and own every single record for my Crosley player by them.

10. How would your best friend describe you?:

“Mae is a very outgoing and spontaneous person. I love that she is willing to be my right hand and best friend whenever I need her. She is very welcoming and always makes me feel comfortable. Being best friends with her for 6 years has shown me what a true friendship really is. Mae will always stick up for herself and anyone around her, which is an excellent trait to have.”

11. Who is your role model, and why?:

My role model in the modeling world is Behati Prinsloo because she left her whole life behind to pursue her dreams. She uses her platform to speak out for change and is genuinely a positive person that has worked really hard for her success. Bella Thorne is my main role model because she is unapologetically herself. She has shown me how to try different things and be confident within your own skin.

12. How do you kick back and relax?:

My favorite ways to kick back and relax are taking a warm bath with candles, drawing in my journal, binge watching Youtube videos, organizing my closet, cuddling my kitten & dogs, watching movies with my little sister, and going on night drives, with no destination blasting throwback music.

This shift has created a huge buzz around the term ‘athleisure,’ inspiring all of us trend setters to keep up to date with all of the trendiest workout clothing, sneakers, and accessories. Athleisure is now one of the most essential parts of every girls’ wardrobe. Designers have caught on to this trend fairly quickly, and many have started their own athleisure lines to keep up with the trend.

Almost every clothing brand that you can think of now has its own athletic clothing line, but some of the most popular brands right now are Nike, Adidas, Gucci, FENDI, Supreme, and Fabletics. This street style trend has expanded from basic black leggings and shoes to bold-colored pants, matching sweatsuits, and sneakers.
