About

Since 2013, our goal has been to help Black women improve their quality of life, starting with their natural curly hair. We focus on an education-based approach to beauty, which led us to create our Beauty & Wellness Showroom — a pop-up experience that intertwines haircare with wellness, deeply rooted in cultural values. This innovative approach has forever changed how we impact the world.
