I love sitting down and chatting with industry leaders. Ouidad pioneered curly hair when CURLY was not a thing. We discussed her life, how she started her salon and built her business, and more! Ouidad made curly girls love their manes. She taught the world how to embrace CURLY. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Make sure to return next week to hear the second part of her journey.
