The annual ESSENCE Fashion House recently returned during New York Fashion Week to the Walker Hotel in Tribeca, NY, as a location to educate their audience on the industry and to celebrate Black creatives from all backgrounds. Franchelli Rodriguez, aka @chelliscurls, shared her GRWM (Get Ready With Me) on TikTok featuring a nostalgic curly style before heading out to the Fashion House dinner with NaturallyCurly. 

“NaturallyCurly just brings back so many memories to my transitioning days,” Rodriguez says in the clip. “That was like my Google. If it was on NaturallyCurly, then I knew that I was good. Ingredients were good to go. I am so happy to have had resources and inspo to follow.”

The style she created here was everywhere in the ‘90’s and 2000’s. How could we forget—it was the ultimate cool girl look.To reproduce this classic curly hairstyle, Francelli is using Creme of Nature’s Shine and Hold Control Glue and the Dippity-Do Girls With Curls Gel.
