Within the past few years, Curl Fest has turned into the largest festival celebrating natural hair in the country. This past Sunday hundreds of ladies showed up to this year’s event to show off their beautiful tresses, shop from local vendors and major hair brands, and picnic with fellow curly girls. We spoke to a few women who we felt stood out for their amazing hair and style. Read on!
“I design jewelry and I designed what I’m wearing right now.” – Jasmine Larmond, IG:artistfrombearth
Love this look. Her top came straight from Ghana.
“My style is very high fashion, laid back, and cultural.” – Rennae Smooth, IG: @iamcallyouback
“I would say my style is very casual and laid back. A lot of people call me hippie. I like to be very loose and free. I make crochet tops. That’s actually my business.”- Tiara Jackson, IG: @tiaracrotchets
“I love that my hair is springy and full. I love the versatility. If I want to pull it up because it’s getting too hot, I can. If I want to let it go and be the lion mane that it is, it’s good.” – Vivian Whitener
(L) “I love that my hair is springy and huge and I don’t really need to do much. It stays pretty big on it’s own. I cut my bangs myself. I actually cut the shape. I like to cut it myself.” – Britney Watkins, IG: Bwateq1
(m) “I am rocking my infamous look, the frohawk. I’ve become known for this look. It’s my go-to. It’s easy, simple, it’s dope, it’s trendy, it’s edgy, it’s everything.” – Lenica costa
(R) “I’m more comfortable with frizz, I’m more comfortable with my hair not cooperating. I just let myself be now. I don’t fight it”. – Fedorah Bastien, IG: @namedafterahat
“I love prints. My style is ever changing. I love being ahead of the trends. My umbrella is from Pardon My Fro.” – Constance Cass
“My style is pretty chill, but I like to beat my face to capacity. Makeup is life [laughs].” – Zehira Jirves
We spotted a few beautiful little girls rocking the most adorable fros!
(L) We’re from Cape Verde. We are sister. We actually wore straight hair at one point, then she went natural then I followed her and I went natural.- Maty Montiro IG:Maty_Sm
