If you grew up in the 1990s or prior then chances are you probably didn’t have ready access to dolls that looked like you. It’s also highly likely that the images of beauty you did see on TV and in magazines often times reflected european beauty standards. Thankfully we are well into the new millennium now and we stand well positioned to present our children with a new picture of what beauty is. The curly kid star series is a tool for change. We spotlight beauty that isn’t often represented in mainstream media and we celebrate curly cuties on a weekly basis. We encourage you to share the Curly Kid Star articles with your kiddos. Use it as a chance to talk about self love and hair in an uplifting way with your children.
