This past weekend, Curlfest made its way to Atlanta for the first time. The festival was created in 2014 to appreciate black and brown women who embrace their natural kinks, coils, and curls.  As expected, Atlanta naturalistas showed up and out! Many took to social media to share anecdotal stories of networking, swooning over the few men that attended the festival, and meeting carefree women and children. 

Festivals like Curlfest are especially important for children to witness representation. In a world where certain hair types and textures are more accepted than others, it is imperative that kids are exposed to people who take pride in the way they look regardless of societal standards. One woman even encouraged her toddler to take pictures with other women to physically illustrate representation!

Carrying over the tradition from last year, we’ve highlighted our favorite looks from this years Atlanta edition of Curlfest below.
