Stylist Cally Raduenzel

The 13th and final stop of the 2017 portion of the The Curl Revolution book tour perfectly summed up everything that has made the past two and a half months so special.

Women of all ages, all ethnicities and all curl textures came together at Curls and Co Salon for the 2-hour event. Founders of different brands – Cortney Sigilai from TréLuxe, Aisha Crump from Honey Baby Naturals and Aishia Strickland from 30-Day Hair Detox – bonded over their shared passion for curls.

This kind of fellowship and entrepreneurship was exactly what I wanted to celebrate in The Curl Revolution: Inspiring Stories & Practical Advice from the NaturallyCurly Community.

By night's end, new friendships were forged and each attendee left with a bagful of curl products. We sold out of books!

A highlight of the night was meeting curl expert Cally Raduenzel, who has amassed a loyal clientele who travel from all over to get their curls and coils clipped at the salon. This stylist/singer has brought together a creative collective of stylists specifically chosen because of their talent, training, personality and devotion to curls, coils and waves.

"It doesn't matter what age or sex you are; dudes, college professors, professional folks, musicians, comedians, barista's and bar staff, accountants and chess nerds…you have a new place to call home when you need our skills! We will not make fun of you if you want a mullet or to look like George Stephanopoulos or Sid Vicious," according to the Curls and Co. website.
