Curls & Kinks Presents “Getting Back to Basics” with Cebelamour & Frenchy Fatim

On July 25, 2015 an eclectic group of women convened on the great lawn of Brooklyn, New York’s Prospect Park for “Getting Back To Basics” curated by myself and natural hair & beauty vlogger Fatim, also known as @FrenchyFatim.

The purpose of our event was to connect with our followers from social media. We wanted to create a more direct and tangible platform in which women with various hair types from all walks of life could swap stories about hair, beauty, health and much more.

Between the games, snacks, music, laughs and of course great conversation, we couldn’t have asked for a better turnout. These women each have a very unique but relatable journey. It was our honor to capture & connect with each and every one of them. Check out the photos and video recap below!
