The Curly Cartel

Curly-Cartel

There is something to the unique spirit of one who possesses vision in an unforeseen manner. The Curly Cartel was a simple concept turned movement for the everyday woman – to empower and support her along this journey we call life.

Starting off with conventional careers, it was the adventure of entrepreneurship that brought these women together. Dunnie of Miss Dunnie O, and Ms. JGray of Image Is Everything PR, met over a friendly twitter message and decided to use their talents to foster an environment of acceptance and ingenuity, by building a community known as the Curly Cartel!

Earning their honorary team natural badges by no longer conforming to the social expectations, they found freedom in being themselves. “There are enough people in the world who will like you for who you are,” says Miss Dunnie O. And understanding and identifying who you are, states Ms. JGray, is the key to loving yourself.

The unification of any community not only creates an inveterate bound but more importantly a support system that leaves room for the unimaginable to occur. As Miss Dunnie O and Ms. JGray are members of historically rival sororities, it speaks to their personal sense of integrity that not only a partnership but a friendship was cultivated from a simple, “Hello.” While a competitive edge is a necessity to endure the stagnate moments entrepreneurship evokes, they will tell you “open lines of communication” and that little word you learned in kindergarten, “teamwork,” are tools to achieving success.

The cornerstone of the Curly Cartel is found in the honesty of the motto, “You define your own beauty” – a beauty that flows inside out. We women today live our lives in front of a mirror, counting our wrinkles, practicing our smile, sucking it in here and there – trying to find the perfect angle for the perfect photograph. There is a wound that needs to be healed in all of us. It is in these unfortunate similarities that we must found ourselves, recognizing that each and every one of us are more than enough.

Hair was only the premise of the Curly Cartel – it’s about beauty, nutrition, fitness, an overall healthy lifestyle that encourages women to embrace all facets of the self, in its most natural form.

So what’s next for the mysterious and luscious Curly Cartel? Well in just 29 days the launch of their website will officially introduce the world to the Curly Cartel’s community of naturalistas. Also be on the lookout for their upcoming event where Miss Dunnie O and Ms. JGray have teamed up in organizing the sexy yet classy Facet Swimwear & Lingerie Fashion Show. Oh, and a little birdie told us that another Curly Cartel is on the horizon – this time wellness in its entirety is the focus!
