Curlfriends, we’re sorry. We’re so sorry. We’re your hairstylists, your confidants, your beauty mentors, your friends. We know you. You’ve sat in our chairs throughout your life.

You’ve sought us out in life’s many hardships, and we’ve been honored to walk alongside you through various challenges. We know how you like your coffee. We can part your hair perfectly. We’ve scrubbed your scalp. And we must admit, though never intentionally, we’ve lied to you. We’ve misled you. We’ve brought you down a path that was not the best for you or your curls.
