Curlfest Postponed Due to Weather

Hey guys,

We were so excited about having a blast with you all on Sunday. Unfortunately this unpredictable rain storm has dampened our plans, making for a wet and soggy experience for everyone.

We’re super bummed about the forecast, but can only accept the things we cannot change. In an effort to bring you the best event possible, we’ve made the difficult decision to reschedule the event for a later date.

We won’t let this weather stop us and truly appreciate your love and support as we keep working to make Curlfest 2015 the most awesome gathering of naturally beautiful people New York City has ever seen. Stay tuned on social media for updates, and we will release more details on the date and RSVP list as soon as possible!

Thanks for rockin’ with us. We got this!

Essence Best in Black Beauty Awards

Last night we had the honor of being one of the nominees at Essence Magazine’s Best in Black Beauty Awards. Our nomination for Best Beauty Collective/Group/Community was beyond exciting and to even be in the running alongside so many great bloggers and groups was a privilege in and of itself!

Essence treated us to a beauty concierge desk where we selected our favorites from the nominees in the cosmetic, skin and hair categories, and we caught up with a few of our friends from out of town including Whitney from Naptural85 and Antoinette and Shanti from Around the Way Curls. All in all it was a humbling experience and an awesome evening, and we’re looking forward to bringing home the award in 2016!

Below are a few photos from our night:
