“Designed as a series for Transitioning Movement, this series would be 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. Our target audience is the transitioning woman or woman who’s thinking of transitioning and is wondering “What exactly am I going to do with my hair?” and “How can I achieve my own, unique look?” –Carol’s Daughter

This past Saturday we had the pleasure of shooting the up and coming Transitioning Movement Documentary brought to you by Carol’s Daughter. Now that I think about it, it’s really dope that we were able to participate in this little piece of documented history. I grew up always being told that it didn’t happen unless you document it and it’s really a great thing that the folks over at Carol’s Daughter acknowledge that what we are witnessing today is indeed historic and worth being archived for the future. This uprise of natural hair acceptance and exposure is an indication of self love within communities that in the past, have only been fed self hate. And remember, “The worst thing about that kind of prejudice… is that while you feel hurt and angry and all the rest of it, it feeds you self-doubt. You start thinking, perhaps I am not good enough.”(Nina Simone) And as a result, we are collectively becoming more empowered, self aware and whole. 

So, big ups to Carol’s Daughter and the Transitioning Movement Team. You are appreciated (2Pac voice). And it was such a pleasure to get a chance to really sit down and kick it with some of our fellow bloggers and vloggers. We were honored to be in your company. And lastly, Hey Fran Hey, Cipriana and Chescaleigh together are some funny mutha suckas and honorary Around the Way Curls. #comedy

  1. Just received this update in my e-mail and had to get on here to congratulate you guys! You’re all beautiful, I love the hair – keep it up! Such a positive movement. Now if only people like you could get featured on Media Take Out and such, instead of all those “video models” they like to promote *major side eye*. Love ittt!!

    • Thanks for the love. I’m thinking of launching a video on and about media take out. I want people to stop going there all together. It’s a ratchet hot mess. I know it will get us a ton of back lash but what do you think?

    • It really is! I can’t lie, sometimes I go for laughs – but I can do away with it all together. YES for the video!! Do it girl :-) Thanks for responding!!

      I think you should definitely voice your opinion about it, there’s way too much negativity on that site.

  2. In the “Mean Mug” picture, y’all look constipated. LOL. I can’t wait to see the documentary. Keep up the good work!

  3. Everybody looks great! Congrats to all you ladies on this project. I have to say, Shanti & Chescaleigh’s faces are too funny! And being from Harlem I know all about the poses in the last pic, I literally LOL’d when I saw that, y’all crazy. :)

    -Chelsea D.

  4. I recently relaxed my hair after being so frustrated with it. However, after looking at this website I have hope and I will start this process all over again. Great website ladies
