CURLY HAIR ARTISTRY, a new international group of hair stylists, will gather for the world's first curly hair symposium, October 19 – 21, 2013 in Atlanta, GA. The symposium is booked at maximum capacity—with good reason. Naturally wavy and curly hairstyles are dominating industry trends, leaving behind the restrained straight hair looks of the past few years. "Curls are powerful and sassy!" says Raakhee Mirchandani, New York Daily News Fashion Editor. Hence, C.H.A. stylists are eager to join forces to network and continue their education in advanced cutting techniques and product applications.
San Francisco's Dianne Nola, of Nola Studio, will be representing Northern California in this year's symposium. "I love educating my clients," says Nola who's been in the industry nearly 25 years. "Teaching them ways to reduce frizz, illuminate their curls and embrace their own beauty. I’m honored to be a part of this event and look forward to utilizing the progressive techniques."
Working with different textures and curl patterns is a typically neglected area of expertise in an aspiring stylist’s training. "There is very little education on curly hair, so the encouragement to work through difficult situations, get mentorship and guidance is what this group focuses on," says founder and keynote speaker, Scott Musgrave.
As the fading trend of straight hair moves towards a more natural look, there will be an increasing need for curly hair specialists. Lorraine Massey, curly hair expert and author of Curly Girl: The Handbook points out, "65% of women have naturally wavy or curly hair." Curly Hair Artistry is on the forefront of this movement with the world's first curly hair symposium this fall.
Curly Hair Artistry was founded January 2013. It represents a forum for the curly hair specialist seeking deeper knowledge and support in their craft.
