Last week, our friends at Milk.xyz invited natural hair beauty bloggers VaVaVoom Curls to advise on some summer styles to beat the heat; this week, they went straight to the Holy Grail of natural hair inspo: CurlFest.
Nestled in the grassy lawn of Prospect Park for their annual takeover, CurlFest is a celebration of natural hair in all its forms, whether that be Amaal Nuux-esque waves or tighter curls a la Ella Mai; they’ve got products, and events, for everyone (and yes, that includes the guys, too).
No matter what artist you cite as your daily hair inspiration, it seemed worth the visit to CurlFest 2K17—as such, we made the journey to the heart of Brooklyn with photographer Reece Williams to document the attendees serving up their looks.
“On this day, the air was sweet with coconut, and Shea,” he says. “Love, laughs, life; all these things were plentiful.”
If you think that just sounds too good to be true, think again—we’ve got the photos to prove it.
