Continuing the mission to uplift curly girls with joy!
The ultimate one-day event focused on all things natural hair. Known as the UK’s leading event of its kind, on 28th July 2018 at the ILEC Conference Centre, we offered a safe space to over 3,000 people to unapologetically celebrate their natural self.

Thank you for creating such a lovely event for us Queens It was worth traveling from Amsterdam. I cannot wait to attend the second time!
What an amazing event! Fantastic selection of products, advice, workshops and talks. It was so informative, I came away feeling so empowered! Can't wait for next year's event!
Nice to attend a hair festival that celebrates natural hair. If you’re newly natural it’s such an empowering event. Can’t believe I only found out about it this year!
I go every year . The event gets better and better every year. Brilliant workshops
Being around more than 2,000 black women was a powerful learning experience. It reminded me that like our hair, we come in many different shades and shapes, but when we fully embrace what makes us unique, we rise and shine beyond imagination. I saw different generations of women rocking their curls, braids and coils like Queens and doing awesome things. Some of them are pushing boundaries and challenging the stereotypes of what it means to be woman and black.
The event was very well organised. It showcased professionals that had a wealth of knowledge which they happily shared.It hosted a large selection of natural organic hair companies that were passionate in growing the black market and businesses.There were also some talented artists and jewellers which had some great pieces of work. Great selection of workshops and seminars so you were able to gain knowledge and still enjoy your self. Lovely atmosphere,which allowed me saunter through without feeling tense. l would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to gain knowledge,purchase great products whilst integrating with their community .Can't wait to come again!! Blessings to all the promoters. Keep up your great work
Still coming to terms with how amazing CurlyTreats Fest...So tired but so worth it! Really inspiring to see some of my favourite Insta family and natural curls coming together all in one place. Natural hair really is such a beautiful thing.
Definitely enjoyed it. First time attending and will be back next year. Congrats to all those involved and to you Shirvina. Hard work was worth it.
You got to let people know when they’ve done a job well done. You never brighten your own light by trying to dim the light of others. I had to let this talented woman know how fantastic her event was yesterday, even if it did mean waking up at 5am. 😫
It was so beautiful to see all the support & all the vendors at yesterday’s @CurlyTreatsFest. If you missed it, you missed out big time. Shirvina & your team, I cannot sing your praises enough on such an amazing event.
Thanks for a fabulous day with great ideas saw some amazingly beautiful black women rocking amazing natural hairstyles
Thank you all for organising, cannot wait for the next event . Great program, it was so needed and awesome, my 4 year old daughter loved it.

Bigger and better than last year, Well done and thank you!
Thank you for organising a great event. I will be back...I have already reordered some of the skincare products that I bought as I love them so much.
CurlyTreats Festival was brilliant and there was lots opportunity to meet and hear talks from black business women on a mission who are taking positive action to empower our community. I was blown away by the passion of those women on stage sharing their personal business journeys and feel excited about the natural beauty movement inspiring confidence in our own capabilities to own our future success. I will definitely be back.
The event was wonderful. Lots of natural hair products, advice for natural hair, and beautiful African clothes.
I had an awesome time at CurlyTreats Fest. A job well done Shirvina and the team...So many brands under one roof!
I just want to say a massive big up and thank you to the one that is Shirvina, Director of CurlyTreats Fest and her team for allowing me to organise the fashion show and deliver a workshop on 'Dressing For Your Body Shape' at her fabulous event.
What a great turn out, what a great atmosphere, what a great team. The vendors, models and volunteers all coming together for the greater good. Sisterhood at its best on so many levels.
Girl I salute you.
Thank you to everyone who visited our stand at CurlyTreats Fest and attended our workshop on styling kids’ hair and our Q&A session on miseducation of afro hair!

Well done for another successful CurlyTreats Festival. This was my first time and it was a great opportunity to experience all of black excellence, support independent brands and network with like minded people.
The event was absolutely amazing. Had such a great time meeting and talking with all the wonderful woman...We had great discussions on all related to womb health to yoni steaming, Yoni eggs, menstrual health, motherhood, self-care, pregnancy, birth, teenage health, crystals. I tell you, we all had something to learn and share which is how is should be, right?
Had the most amazing time at CurlyTreats Festival. An amazing UK forum for Black-Owned Businesses, catering for skin, hair, cultural and lots of other beautiful things. Skin & hair right up my street! So many amazing business owners and products!
We’ve had a whale of a time at CurlyTreats Fest and to crown it all we’ve won three CurlyTreats Excellence Awards for Best Moisturiser for our Curl Activator Cream and Best Conditioner for our Sulphate Free Hydrating Conditioner and our brand ambassador and educator #AnastasiaChikezie won the Best Hairstylist.

I just want to congratulate Shirvina for putting on a beautiful event. There was vendors from all over the vibes was amazing if you were there, I'm sure you didn't leave empty handed.
Had an amazing time yesterday CurlyTreats Fest with Influencers of the Year Curlture Such a fab event by Shirvina
The place to be today! #CurlyTreatsLondon - It's lovely and refreshing seeing so many natural styles together with us celebrating the diversity of our hair and styles. I'm lovin' it!
CurlyTreats Fest thank you for another year of hairstories.
Thank you soooooo much for everything...me and my ‘Shégitu - Sensual Dance for Ladies’ Queens had the best time of our lives. Your staff, the location, the vibes, the people...everything was 100%...thank you and all the best to you.
Had a great time spending and networking with my big sister Delphia. Saw some people I hadn't seen in ages. Well done Shirvina!
This is the first #curlytreatsfest I have been too, I used to go to...years ago but I prefer this as I returned to natural hair 2.5 years ago.
Queen well done on such a successful event. It’s the first time I’ve done CurlyTreats & had never heard about it before, but I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to be a vendor again next year or be at any other event you are hosting. No wonder it was a sellout event.
The whole concept is amazing. Your organisation, understanding & attention to detail was A1 & professional from your initial email to me to the very end of the event yesterday.
I wanted to personally thank you for enabling this opportunity - it was a really busy, lively and such fun day out for both the visitors and vendors! Long day but so worth it.
It was a great opportunity for me to meet in person some customers who support my brand and also make new ones too. We were practically sold out of goods at the end of the day! Thanks again for organising this essential festival.
I had a brilliant day and I look forward to next year's event.
It was really nice to see such a positive event and meet so many new vendors. Thank you for the goody bag too.
The event was a such a great turnout and it was good to see people who were happy to support black businesses all in one location. The level of organisation was spectacular and your assistance was provided when needed, considering how busy you were you still had time for your customers, its much appreciated. A massive thank you and well done.
Thank you greatly for putting on such a brilliant event. I loved every minute of it of playing such a significant part in it. It was such an awesome experience.
I have heard nothing but praise from those who attended and many people were saying how you should make this a regular event, even every 6 months.
Your hand picked team of volunteers and coordinators were an absolute pleasure to work with and each one was inspiring in their own unique way.
You are a true inspiration to many and exude the characteristics of a humble leader who is building a growing empire that serves and educates many. I will continue to support CurlyTreats Festival and all of your future events that you have in the pipeline. You rock.

Thoroughly enjoyable day out, was inspiring to see an exhibition of this magnitude dedicated to the education of women and girls of colour embracing their natural hair.
CurlyTreats was a very informative and friendly event. I would recommend to all women with natural hair and will be going back.
As someone who has done event planning, I am sometimes hard to impress but it was a pleasure to attend this event for the curly community. The programme had something for everyone with high quality speakers, workshops and exhibitors. I can't wait until next year!
CurlyTreats Fest is a great opportunity to shop with independent businesses as well as bigger brands. It was educational and empowering to be surrounded by like-minded people.
We at Heritage Collections wanted to say a huge thank you for the opportunity you gave us to sell our merchandise at the Curly Treats event last week. It was truly an amazing experience. Yourself and your team did a splendid job and the event was great! The CurlyTreats vision is a great one so keep up the good work and we hope to see you again next year.
Not only did we leave with a bag full of new hair products but an appreciation that such an event existed.
Everything I needed to know about natural black hair and how to care for it was there! Great workshops, great stalls to buy products.Even having discounted prices compared to shops. Samples to try and buy next time. Accessories and clothes to buy. A real 'treat'. A definite date to mark in your calendar, annually.
Did I tell you I had fun! I really had fun with all the awesome music being placed all day.
Simply Go Natural Cosmetics
The event was very interesting lots of helpful tips and advice for natural hair maintenance. Would recommend that you grab your tickets early though as they sell out fast. Nice event.
