Curly Kids Extravaganza presented by Cantu

Kids with Afro-textured hair have long experienced discrimination because of their hair’s texture and style. The biggest challenges parents often face are finding the right ways to communicate to their children how to embrace their natural textures, and finding the right styles and products to manage them. Team Natural is here to help! The goal of this event is to inspire an unapologetic generation of mini-queens and kings to love themselves, their hair, and their uniqueness. This event will offer kid-friendly workshops, workshops for moms, styling demonstrations, a fashion/hair show, a pop-up salon, costumed characters, storytelling, and so much more!
