Six years ago, while about six months pregnant, on a not so good pregnancy day, I really wanted, or I should say needed, to get my hair done. The problem was, my hair stylist was about 1.5 hours away from where I lived.
If you’ve ever been pregnant, I bet you understand how I felt every time the thought of driving long distances in traffic crossed my mind. I really hoped for a hair stylist that was nearby to care for my 4C hair.
After I had both my kids, I realized that their hair was completely different than mine and I had no clue how to take care of it. Then again, I wished I could easily find a hair stylist that specializes in curly hair so I could take my kids there. There wasn’t really anything out there that featured only hair stylists that work with kinky, coily or curly hair. I also didn’t want to deal with the headache of sifting through a wide range of hair stylists that didn’t work with my hair type in hopes of miraculously finding the right one.
Being a web designer by trade, I thought, “why not create a website that would be just for finding a hair stylist that specializes in our hair types”. Even though I was scared as hell to start this project, I couldn’t stop thinking of how useful it would be. A place where we can find a hairstylist, find haircare tips, tutorials, products, events and more.
My name is Anthea Ancalade and I am the creator and founder of CurleeMe. I believe that finding a hair stylist for our kinky, coily or curly hair shouldn’t be hard.
