Curlfest: Brooklyn’s Finest

Curlfest is a gathering of the most beautiful people ever! The third annual Curlfest happened in July and this is the first year that I actually got the chance to attend. I’ve RSVPed every year prior but life happened and I was never able to attend. well, it was worth the wait. I took my 12-year-old daughter along to the dopest picnic with the dopest women rocking natural hair.

There was a main stage with a DJ spinning all of the Beyonce that you can dance to. All of your favorite curl products/brands were on the lawn in Prospect Park selling your faves, handing out samples and vibing with cool IG backdrops for cool pictures.

The ladies over at knows how to throw a party. Make sure you are on the lawn next year.

  1. My family and I will be relocating to Bk pretty soon and I can’t wait to take my daughter here next year. She’s already asking about having her hair straight (she’s 5) and I want to surround her with people just like her so she can appreciate her gorgeous hair.

    1. So glad to hear that you will be a Brooklynite soon! It is a struggle o get our girls to love all parts of themselves in the society that we live in but times are changing. Brooklyn has it’s pros and cons but a huge pro is the diversity that exists here.
