Rituals with... April & Conner

By Crown Affair

Brushing your hair is one thing. A ritual of brushing your partner's hair, and them brushing yours? Full sap. We had a conversation with charming Austin based couple April and Conner to talk about their relationship, their relationship with hair, and their relationship with each other's hair.

- Where do you live and what do you do?

We live in Austin, Texas!

April: I'm a Freelance Content Creator and team leader at Passport Vintage. I'm also apart of their content creating team.

Conner: I teach science and art to kids. I also do digital creative projects!

- How did you meet?

We actually attended the asme high school all four years and never talked until we graduated! The first time we decided to hang out it was just as friends and we went to the movies, then ended up hanging out until 4am in the movie theater parking lot. That was the beginning of everything.

We've been together for five years and recently got engaged! ♡

- How would you describe your hair?

April: Very thick and voluminous!! My hair was very curly when I was younger but over time turned wavier. This is probably the longest length my hair has ever been.

Conner: Thick also! I have very straight hair and this is also the longest I've ever had my hair.

- How would you describe each other's hair?

Beautiful, long, thick, and oh, so lovely!

- Have you always felt this way about your hair or has it changed over time?

It's changed overtime! I think growing up we both just got annoyed by our hair and how thick it was. As we got older, we realized how grateful we are to have such thick hair and we realize our hair is truly beautiful. We just don't know how to style it or the right hair tools to use.

- What is your current hair care routine?

We used to be so bad at falling asleep with wet hair, which later ended up in a bad hair day, that we started making it a ritual to always put time into our hair. We both make sure to keep up with our haircuts. We also brush each other's hair very consistently, which has become a love language for us. It allows us to have a moment to breathe and catch up. (We really love each other's hair.)

- Are there any tools or products you share?

ALL of Crown Affair hair products haha!! Conner loves Crown Affair... He's actually mentioned before how he enjoys that Crown Affair's combs and brushes are VERY unisex.

- What other daily rituals do you lean into the most?

We both always sit down for coffee no matter what we make sure to have our coffee together and set affirmations for each other to be reminded of what's important.

- What are your favorite holiday rituals?

We always go on a road trip before Christmas. It's been our tradition for the last three years. We also usually binge-watch a movie series on Christmas day and order Chinese takeout! This year we are watched all of the Harry Potter movies!
