Fanola Babe, Anne Kim Luu also known as @dfuqanne is a funny, outgoing, and talented TikTok content creator! We had the pleasure of getting to know more about her, what she has been doing to self care, her love for acting, and her goals for TikTok!
How are you taking care of your mental health during these wild times?
There’s a big lake where everyone goes and exercises in Seattle. I usually would just take my dog and run a full circle around there. It honestly helped me think better because whenever I have a lot of free time, I tend to be in my own head and I tend to think about a lot of things. Maybe take a short hike, but if it's raining, then there's kind of nothing to do and I’m stuck at home, and that's when I usually make YouTube videos!
What are some ways you've kept your hair healthy during quarantine?
I’ve actually been using the Fanola Nutricare Mask. It has helped a lot, I leave it on for about three to five minutes or I leave it on for as long as I can. Another thing would probably be, if I'm not doing anything, I won't even touch my hair. I like to just leave it in a bun.
What self care items do you tend to splurge on?
I would have to say face masks, especially peel off masks. I love peeling it off and seeing all the nasty stuff in there. Right now, I love the dark charcoal masks from the brand Yes To.
How would you describe your personal style?
I guess my style would be a little bit sporty! I really enjoy Liane V’s style, if I could describe it in a way, she would definitely be the inspiration.
What started your passion for making TikToks?
I was always afraid of trying to go for acting and theater, and in Seattle, it's very expensive. I had one law class and we were acting out stuff and I really liked it because my professor was also an acting teacher, but he taught law as well. Ever since then, I just love to reenact stuff. So with quarantine I was laid off from my work and I had nothing else to do. So I found all that free time to invest in myself and build a portfolio for myself on TikTok. I honestly didn't think anything of it. I made one video, left, came back and it was like 200,000 views. I was like, "Oh that's cool!"
Has Fanola changed your hair care routine in any way?
Yes! I did not know how to tone hair back then, with Fanola I did a lot of research and thought that it was so cool! The first time I tried Fanola, I somehow did it wrong. The second time I used Fanola, I made a tub of water and had the Vegan No Yellow shampoo squeezed in there and I dunked my whole head in the tub and laid there for 30 mins awkwardly, but ever since then I really got into Fanola!
What is your favorite thing so far about being a Fanola Babe?
It has changed me in a way where it has made me feel more confident in who I am as an influencer. To work with a company as big and as popular as Fanola, and have them believe in me, it has felt rewarding to see my progress actually mean something to somebody.
