SUSPEND MAGAZINE Q+A WITH JAHMAI LUMPKIN LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA Photography by Kayla Reefer - Interview by Diane Abapo DIANE ABAPO: Hi Jahmai! Take us back to when it all got started for you. How did your fascination for styling hair come about? Do you have any influences growing up who really played an integral role in your profession today? JAHMAI LUMPKIN: I grew up in a family of hair stylists, so hair care was a huge priority in my family. My mother bought me a braid book as a child and I remember practicing on my dolls and myself. In high school my mother wouldn’t allow me to get an after school job like all my friends and insisted I find something I was good at and work on KAYLA REEFER discuss but so excited for you to see.

Behind the Scenes with ISSUE 06 Covergirl: Miss Lawn of HLZBLZ at her Cover Shoot (DTLA)
cover photoshoot: Behind the scenes video of Miss Lawn at the ISSUE 06 cover shoot directed by Kayla Reefer: RELATED POSTS I remember being younger and always wanting to be on the set of a photoshoot.

Flash forward to today, and I now am fortunate enough to photograph some of the individuals who have graced the covers of SUSPEND including the inexplicably talented Miss Lawn, Co-Founder/Creative Director of one of the pioneering streetwear labels, HLZBLZ. The following are never-before-seen images in-between outfit changes when I photographed her at the end of 2015 for her cover story and editorial (written and interviewed by Remy Ramirez). I asked Lanie prior to the shoot if she could bring pieces spanning the 10-years' history of HLZBLZ so far and she willingly obliged. Special thanks to Hair/MUA Grace Fong as well as my camera assistants Christy J. Kim and Kayla Reefer. These were taken at Concrete Studios in Los
