Beauty Design During the late 80’s and early 90’s, African-Americans wanted to express themselves by embracing their naturally kinky, curly hair. We sought to have a maintained, professional and stylish look without the use of hot combs, perms and other potentially damaging styling techniques. Many women, in particular, were coming into a new spiritual awakening making changes inside and out. We were shedding old stereotypes of “nappy hair” and “good hair” vs. “bad hair”.
