Anyone with naturally curly, coily or wavy textured hair has a head full of experience and lessons.
A pioneer in the community and O.G. curly veteran, NaturallyCurly co-founder Michelle Breyer has decades worth of a journey to share with the community she helped shape. And now, she is ready to share it.
What does #TheCurlRevolution mean to you?
"This is so surreal," Breyer cried with tears of joy as she took to the spotlight in front of some of her trendiest, most influential east coast peers at New York City's Lightbox Studio. "Everybody who has been working on this project knows that this was a labor of love." Of course, such a force of a creation deserves a breath of fresh air and a chance to celebrate. Thanks to our amazing sponsors DevaCurl, Ouidad, Aunt Jackie's, As I Am, Coconut Restore, Curlformers, and John Paul Mitchell Systems for helping the NaturallyCurly team put on a great event in support of the book launch.
Book launch party attendees took to social media to thank Michelle for all of her hard work in the curly hair industry.
"Congratulations to NaturallyCurly founder Michelle Breyer on the release of The Curl Revolution. Thank you for crediting Ouidad as a pioneer in the curly hair movement. We're excited to celebrate the launch this evening." Ouidad, founder of Ouidad Salon and products
"So so so honored to be a part of this!" Diane Mary, hair and beauty content creator
"It always amazes me how our hair textures connect us to so many different but wonderful people. Thank you for having me." Sephora Rose Gabourel, curly, fashion and travel blogger
"The industry is always changing, we as stylists must choose to be lifetime learners. I just got this book and I am so excited already just after a few pages. Thank you NaturallyCurly for this amazing book. As a curly girl, I am thrilled to learn more for myself, and for my clients." Sabrina Gray, owner of Touch of Grace Studio
"This book is filled with clients and friends in the curl industry. Thank you Michelle and Skinny for the opportunity." Kissa Starr, founder of Buttafly Unitd
There is a certain amount of courage that goes into cultivating a book that is equal parts storytelling as it is effective in imparting proper education on best practices for a regimen as unique as a single curl on one person's head. Representing anyone who grew up not knowing how or where to find the right products, what cut or style to ask for at a salon, or having their hair publicly shamed as "nappy" and "unruly" since childhood, each chapter of The Curl Revolution overdoses on empowering amounts of confidence and relativity within the community.
Even if it's off the strength of supporting Breyer bringing her vision to fruition during a time when there was virtually nowhere to turn to online for support and advice, The Curl Revolution is exactly what every curly girl (or guy) needs at their salon and on their coffee table at home.
