The 2019 edition of the annual Curlfest was widely attended by several black people from in and around New York. They trooped to the Randall’s Island Park to celebrate the festival which is geared towards empowering women of various shades, shapes and sizes.

The festival, which was founded in 2014, drew attendees from around the world who are proud to celebrate their hair. The attendees took photos, purchased hair products and enjoyed another fantastic networking opportunity.

This edition was also an opportunity to celebrate after Califonia and New York recently signed a bill that banned race-based hairstyles discrimination which is a goal organisers have been hoping to achieve for years.

#CurlFest2019 Hair and Makeup Deets! . . It was a HOT ? ONE! If you were there you like me were torn between bumpin’ to the beats or finding shade. But ok, we already knew it was gonna be scorching. We’re blessed it didn’t rain ??. Finiding an anti-frizz combo was essential! For my hair I used and old fave that I’ve resurrected and LOVE. Pics on the next slides: @sheamoisture African Mint Leave In (which you can only find in select places) and JBCO Styling Lotion. Followed with @themanechoice Peace Tea Mousse and finished with @jessicurl Spiralicious Gel. The gel is similar to my Ouidad Fave Anti Humidity Gel and leaves hair frizzless throughout the day. The leave in is great for the scalp and the mint is so refreshing and mixed with the lotion gives amazing definition. The mousse I have been raving about for months and is FANTASTIC for volume. It pairs with literally EVERYTHING! Been loving mousse/foam at the moment and will be making a post about em’. My hair was a bit fried at the end of the day from the sun (like your skin it needs protection) and needed a good DC last night. However- the curls were defined the entire event and even made it to day two. . . My makeup always consists of @fentybeauty Foundation in 260. Her matte formula is the ONLY FOUNDATION I WEAR. It has helped keep my face readay to pawtay and “in place” ? for well over a yr now. On my eyes is @tartecosmetics Rainforest Collection Liquid Eyeshadow in “Suite Life” with @stilacosmetics Eyeliner. And ? is @sephora Liquid Lipstick in color 08 Whipped Blush! This is the pink all of ya’ll have been asking about. Write. It. Down. And. Go. Buy. It. Before. Summer. Slips. You. Bye. Bye!! It is my FAVORITE bold summer pink! And lasts all day without drying! This was also featured in @curlycurvypassion Lippie Series where we brought you our favorite lipsticks for each season. Would you like to see us bring that back?! . . Happy Monday Ladies. #WeRK. . #NyCBlogger #TheManeChoice #Sephora #NYCCurls
