When naturals in the city want to get together for the biggest and best natural hair event of the year they know that Curly Girl Collective, better known as CGC, will be there to deliver their request.
Yesterday, at Taj lounge, naturals from all over the city were able to connect with over 300 of their curl crushes! The room was filled with natural hair bloggers, fashion bloggers and a bevy of vbloggers and stylists. And of course a photographer from Essence Street Style was there to capture all the dopeness of the evening.
If you weren’t at the event you’re probably wondering what exactly is a ‘Curl Crush’ event? Well, the beautiful ladies of CGC came up with this concept to create an interactive event where tons of naturals can come together to get and share natural hair advice and just girl talk! The event was not meant to be your typical, mundane networking mixture. It was designed to be FUN and interactive. Attendees had the opportunity to go on a series of quick fun “dates” with fellow naturalista’s and numerous natural hair bloggers, vbloggers and stylists.
Special guests included Renae from inhershoesblog.com and Dickey from Hair Rules salon among others.
During these fun filled interactions daters were able to switch tips, ask questions and get professional advice! How awesome is that?
This fantastic and super original event was sponsored by some of the natural communities finest; Shea Moisture, Beautiful Textures and naturallycurly.com among others.
Some of my FAVORITE bloggers were in the building to represent the natural hair community: Shoutout to Taren916, Naptural85, Lovebrownsugar, UrbanBushBabes and MORE!
