“Curls, afros, twists and various natural hairstyles were represented at the “Curls Gone Wild” event Saturday. Curls Gone Wild, hosted by bloggers Shanti Mayers and Antoinette Henry of “Around the Way Curls,” Andrea Lewis of duo from “Those Girls Are Wild” and Brooke Slade, the venue coordinator, aimed to provide an opportunity for women with natural dos to network, connect and inspire one another.”
Curls Gone Wild, held at The Dreaming Building, located at Front and Spring Garden streets, consisted of various vendors ranging from painters, designers, skin, hair and cosmetic specialists, giving women opportunities to browse, shop, converse and learn tips on hair care. With giveaways, clothes, hair wraps and various accessories, attendees had a lot to indulge in.
Although Henry currently lives in Brooklyn, the Around the Way Curls duo are both Philadelphia natives and felt it was important to bring an event of this kind to their home city.
“Philly is home for me, I love Philly, Shanti loves Philly and it saddens me when I read the things I read about Philly — people really don’t know all that it has to offer,” Henry said. “I feel like celebrating that and highlighting the things people do.”
Henry and Mayers created Around the Way Curls a year ago and had no idea they would build such a following. Their online publication provides women with hair care and styling techniques and aims to inspire women to embrace their natural state of being.
