On April 1, 2013 over fifty women gathered for Curls and Conversations NYC. The event was sponsored by Design Essentials Natural and hosted by Jenell Stewart of Kinky Curly Coily Me. New York was the third stop for Curls and Conversations, a series of intimate conversations with women on their natural hair journeys. The tour celebrates the Design Essentials Natural national retail expansion into Sally Beauty Supply Stores and Walgreens. Topics of discussion included: natural hair and self-confidence, natural hair “cocktails”, and what men think about natural hair. Attendees came out to the event donning fabulous outfits and hair!
