British Curlies - All About Naturally Beautiful Curls

Bafta winning actress Thandie Newton and I first met on a Vogue shoot about 6 years ago. It didn’t take long before I felt that I’d always known her. She is one of the most inspiring women I’ve ever met and I’ve been fortunate enough to make-up, wax lyrical and travel with her ever since. I have made her up more than anyone else in my whole career, in an entirely different way each time.
For us Brits Autumn can be a tricky time of year. You never know what the morning will bring, be it blazing sunshine or mist and grey gloom (the wardrobe challenges alone…sigh). It makes me think ahead to what curl challenges we will face with our on coming winter season. Last winter was so bad weather wise it would be foolish not to give a thought ahead and consider styling options.
At British Curlies, we love to see celebrity curly hair on screen. The Slap is a new eight-part drama series for BBC Four based on Christos Tsiolkas’ best-selling novel.At a summer BBQ, a man slaps a child who is not his son and the story traces the shattering repercussions of a single event upon a group of family and friends.
The dazzlingly beautiful Ruth Negga portrays Dame Shirley Bassey Thursday September 29th on BBC2 at 9pm. We will be watching Shirley and hope you do too!
The endless stream of praise for Matthew James in our Curl Forum is testament to the incredible talents of Britain’s only true Curly Hair Stylist and it was nice to catch up with Matt and share some great before and after pic’s of his work with you our fabulous members!
On Saturday the 9th of July I attended the Urban Enterprise Changing Concepts in Beauty event hosted in London and I was really happy that I attended as it turned out to be both informative and good fun!

It’s Lei here! I am newly natural as of the last year. The 22nd August 2009 was my last relaxer and after three short months of transitioning, on the 19th November 2009 I made the decision to cut off all of my relaxed hair.
Belle’s Hair Story:
Let me begin with setting the scene; a young 18 year old girl (that would be me) has come into a new world (that would be university).
Laura Ruth and her beautiful Curls. Be Inspired!
Split ends don’t affect curly hair as much as straight hair. The hair doesn’t split all the way up the hair shaft.
Long before No.1 Ladies Detective Agency, American song bird Jill Scott has been a phenomenally inspiring Curlie for women and girls around the globe. We love you Jill!
