Got a Girl Crush On: The Curl web series

Totally crushing on the new and original web series for Carol’s Daughter’s new site, Transitioning Movement, The Curl!

The first show of its kind, a show that, when put together, defines, entertains and exposes viewers to natural hair terminology and hairstyles in a comprehensive way, while getting a sneak peek into the lives of women who share their own candid, incredibly diverse hair stories. This series is for every woman-sister-mother-friend who has ever wondered, “What exactly am I going to do with my hair?” and “How can I achieve my own unique look?”

Episode One - The Pompadour

Pompadour refers to a hairstyle which is named for Madame de Pompadour (1721-1764), mistress of King Louis XV. Although there are numerous variations of the style for both women and men, the basic concept is hair swept upwards from the face and worn high over the forehead, and sometimes upswept around the sides and back as well.

Check out episode two: here.

ed. note - shout-out to my girl, Tara, for being so effortless in front of the camera!

Got a girl crush on: Girls with Long Hair

Sure I just got my hair cut, but the grass is always greener on the other side. Wish there were a pill I could take like Alice in Wonderland, except instead of growing bigger or smaller, I could grow my hair longer or shorter whenever I want.
