LI Salons Changing Focus To Adapt To Growing Natural Hair Movement

The turnout at Long Island's first natural hair fair, Got Curl Expo 18, in Plainview last month is a testament to the natural hair movement's growing prevalance in the area, said event organizer Victoria Stanton, 31.

Furthermore, Long Island women are tired of having to travel to New York City for these types of events, she said. "I wanted to bring that to Long Island, and with the response I've gotten, I plan on bringing more events here," she said.
