The Taliah Waajid Empire
Before I take you around the Curls, Kinks, & Culture Pop-Up Festival. it is important to recognize and highlight the Taliah Waajid empire. Back in the 90’s, chemical and paraben free products did not exist; so Taliah created her own! #GirlBoss. More than two decades later, the TW brand has expanded to five product lines and a men’s grooming product brand, Uncle Jimmy. Taliah Waajid products are sold in national retail stores and local beauty supply stores.

You know I had to pick up some Taliah Waajid products, a t-shirt, and a tub of all-natural shea butter to keep my skin moisturized during the winter months! Below you will find my favorite 3 things from the Taliah Waajid’s Curls, Kinks, & Culture Pop-Up Festival.
1. Uncle Jimmy Barbershop Lounge
The Uncle Jimmy’s pop-up barbershop was my favorite! Not only was there gorgeous bearded men with fresh hair cuts [insert looking eyes emoji], but it was a full pop-up barbershop complete with hardwood floors, leather lounge chairs, a pop’n DJ, and bar!
2. Green apple & aloe product launch
The Queen of Natural, Curly, Coily Hair, Taliah Waajid graced us with her presence to announce the exciting arrival of her new product line Green Apple & Aloe Nutrition!! You have to get your hands on these products. I absolutely fell in love with the refreshing and calming SMELL of green apples and aloe. The packaging is everything, right?!
3. The Vibe: Activations, music, vendors
The Taliah Waajid’s Curls, Kinks, & Culture Pop-Up Festival promised to bring its fans a vibe, and that’s what they delivered on! The vibe was so good and vibrant.
