Nationwide — My Fluffy Puffs and For Wavers Only will kick off the fall season with their seminal event, The Best of Both Curls 2.0, in Orlando, Florida, October 11 and October 13, 2019.

The festivities launch with a Wavy Skate Party for teens and adults on, October 11, 6pm to 9pm, at Astro Skate Rink, 866 S. Goldenrod Rd., Orlando, FL 32822. On October 13, from 1pm to 5pm, the dynamic weekend concludes with an exclusive pop-up shop at the Hub925, 7594 W. Sand Lake Rd., Orlando, Florida 32819.

Naturals, wavers, vendors and small businesses will enjoy empowering moments of fellowship and networking. Along with direct access to a thriving community, attendees will witness product demonstrations and innovative techniques. The goal of the event is to establish a positive movement for young Black women and men united by hair culture, regardless of their respective self-care practices.

Best of Both Curls was created by Steve, owner of For Wavers Only Apparel, a sportswear line that represents natural hair culture, and Alyssa, owner of My Fluffy Puffs, a hair and skin care brand for minorities.

Within the natural hair movement there are two prominent groups: Naturals who focus on caring for their textured kinks and coils, and wavers who use specific techniques to create waves in their hair. The successful entrepreneurs designed the event to connect customers and supporters in one venue, after noticing the significant interest and engagement from young people via social media. Youth as young as 10 with followings of over 20K, are building small communities around diverse self-care practices.

“Best of Both Curls provides a safe space for young people to express their hair culture. Our event will happen in a different major city, annually,” says co-creator and founder of My Fluffy Puffs, Alyssa.

“This event purposely allows me to interact and connect with the community, sharing my vision through designs and apparel,” says co-creator and owner of For Wavers Only Apparel, Steve.

Patrons of the pop-up shop will receive swag bags, and one lucky guest will win a huge prize of one product from each minority vendor. Vendors opportunities are available.
