We asked stylist Mengly Hernandez to be a part of the What's Underneath Project because underneath her jumbo-sized sunglasses and Edie Sedgwick mod hat is a single mom with the energy of a thoughtful yogi. Mengly rebelled against the environment she grew up in, where screaming supplanted communication, by having a holistic relationship with her son, who she felt was a gift when she had him at 18 years old. He taught her how to be open to people and to take down her walls of pain. We love it when the parent can see that the child is their teacher.
