Shy definitely brings a certain eclectic style when he walks in the room with his now Hot Pink MOhawk. Ekqualyte Style hause had an opportunity to work with Shy in Our 1st style hause photo shoot. We loved because Shy was hungry and passionate and just down to shoot wherever an opportunity presented itself even in the W Hotel elevator.
