white stylists/ the beauty industry can often have a bias against curly hair but that is because curly hair is pretty rare in the white world. it may not seem that way because we see the world through curly eyes. we are looking for curls and we remember the curl girls. but out of hundreds of women i only know a few who have truly curly hair. and often it's very silky and fine so it's not really that 'different'. but very curly, puffy, coarse, frizzy curly hair in the white world is rare so it's misinterpreted and people are afraid of what they don't know.
because all black women have curly hair, it's a different scenario, IMO. but white media was the majority media for so long. perhaps still.
