We want to thank all the smart, joyful, and beautiful women who joined us for our very first Curls & Cocktails event at the Imagine Affairs Art Lounge last night! The night was full of laughter, delicious drinks, good food, wonderful giveaways, and great company. Not only did we have the pleasure of meeting fine ladies in the Bay Area, but we also received a lot of knowledge from our wonderful stylists.
We would like to give a very special thanks to stylists, Monique and Cynthia. Our first Curls & Cocktails event would not have been the same without them, and we are ever grateful to them for joining us in our journey to revolutionize hair care for women with textured hair.
Monique is one of the co-founders of HairTenders Salon in Walnut Creek, CA. She gave great advice and feedback on wearing hair extensions and how to really use protective styles to grow your hair. Her company is known for using quality care to support and maintain hair care and growth.
“HairTenders is in the business of revitalizing and rejuvenating natural hair with the integrity and health of our clients hair being our primary concern. With a combination of treatments, using only the highest quality hair care products, and protective styling, our clients have been experiencing growth and stronger healthier hair. We believe that you do not have to compromise “style” to have healthy hair but can maintain a trendy appearance with proper hair care practices.”
Cynthia is the founder of Sankofa Braiding and Natural HairCare. She also gave great advice and feedback on wearing protective styles, such as braids and twists. Having over 15 years of hair care experience, a background in teaching proper hair care, and owning another hair studio in Ghana, West Africa, Cynthia honed in on truly knowing your hair type in order to give it optimum care.
“I have been braiding for fifteen plus years (15+), and been a Cosmetologist for about fifteen years. Doing a client’s hair is one thing on its own and getting to know your client is another thing. At Sankofa, we get to know our client and listen to and understand what their NEEDS and WANTS are for their beauty to fit their everyday life.”
We would also like to thank our SPONSORS for making this event possible!
While we were not able to capture all of the people who attended our event, we were lucky enough to capture this group picture before the night was over. Once again, THANK YOU ALL for supporting and joining us in our journey to revolutionize textured hair care!
