BETher x Curly Girl Collective

Eight years ago, we founded Curly Girl Collective after a group of our friends began an email thread to support one another and wrap our heads around our new kinks, curls, and locs. From this small email thread to a series of events later, we launched #CURLFEST in 2014. And YALL! 1000 people showed up! We were floored! Fast forward to this year, we welcomed over 35K friends and allies to celebrate one another and natural beauty! As we continue on this journey, your love and support never cease to amaze us. We’re doing this for us! We see you all, understand your journey and couldn’t imagine shifting societal norms with anyone else. We were honored to share our story with BETher, thank you for beautifully capturing our story and journey #fortheculture XO Charisse, Gia, Melody, Simone & Tracey
