Flare & Hair Event Coverage

By |February 9th, 2015|Lifestyle|1 Comment

Over this  weekend was a whirl wind of craziness. Good craziness nonetheless. The Flare & Hair Event was a success with all different types of women attending. Some of them were natural and some of them weren’t, which was perfectly fine.
About The Location

The event was held at Curl Kitchen, which I have to say is beautiful and classy on the inside. Curl Kitchen is a natural and organic based hair care store located at 3428 S. King Drive Chicago, IL 60616 in the Bronzeville area. It is a Chicago-based retailer of hair care products tailored to those who wish to embrace their tresses naturally.  The owner, Claire,  is very knowledgable about the hair care products. I enjoyed having a discussion with her about the upcoming hair products coming to the shop and the Chicago Natural Hair Bloggers. Curl Kitchen is connected to a natural hair care salon called Huetiful.  The Huetiful Salon is exclusively focused on providing healthy hair treatments for women with natural or processed hair, wavy, curly, or kinky-curly type and textures.
