At last years Afropunk I met a jewel attending the festival from Denver Colorado. She initially recognized me as the natural hair model from the Today show 60 second hair segment gone wrong. After we discussed the show, her friends shopped the collection and we exchanged contact information. When she reached out a few months later to ask if I would be interested in hosting her launch party for Curls on the Block x Crowned Curls in Denver Colorado I immediately said yes. Both companies mission is to promote positive images and self-love for natural women of color. Curls on the Block creator developed a curriculum incorporating STEM to educate young girls about natural hair.
I had an amazing time at the event. Check out the photos from the event below!
