The Pop-up Shop
Sponsored by CURLS Hair care along with Red By Kiss for Men is a unisex platform for afros, curls and waves. The event will be on Sunday, October 13th from 1-5pm (Kids 15 & Under are FREE; Students Get $10 Off) Hub 925 7594 W Sand Lake Road 2nd Fl, Orlando.
It Started with A Concept
Best of Both Curls was created by Steve, owner of For Wavers Only Apparel and apparel line focused on sportswear that represents natural hair culture and Alyssa, owner of My Fluffy Puffs a hair and skin care brand for minorities.
Within the natural hair movement there are two noticeable groups, Naturals who focus on caring for their textured kinks and coils and wavers who use specific techniques to create waves in their hair.
Both Entrepreneurs noticed very early the interest young people expressed with regards to self-care and how quickly their influence would grow online. Kids as young as ten with followings of over 20K are building small communities around various self-care routines.
The goal of the event is to harness and create a positive movement for young black women and men who are united based on hair culture regardless of the selfcare technique they choose to practice.
Both owners created the event with the idea of bringing customers and supporters online in one venue for a popup shop and meetup. It is a safe space for naturals, wavers, vendors and small businesses to come together, have a great time, fellowship and solidify a community focused on health and building self-confidence.
History of the event
The first event was coordinated and organized in just 30 days giving vendors and patrons the opportunity to network and create connections under one roof. The event was held in Brooklyn this past March with over 120 people in attendance. Best of Both Curls 2.0 will be held in Orlando in the Fall and is a permanent show with plans to travel across the country to unite all sub-cultures of the natural hair movement.
Sponsors will have VIP Swag bags featuring full-size products and the hosts and vendors will have giveaways, snacks and Throwback music.
