Black Women and Girls Celebrate Their Natural Hair With Annual Liberty Memorial Photoshoot


KANSAS CITY, MO. (KCTV) — Confidence and celebration were at the center of KC Curly’s natural hair photoshoot on Saturday.

“For me it’s a matter of self-esteem because as a kid, if you don’t feel like your hair looks good, you start to go overboard and think you don’t. have no self-esteem,” said Crissi Curly, founder of KC. Curly.

At the Liberty Memorial and dressed in purple, the ladies took head shots, paraded down the runway and loved each other.

A mother and daughter duo came from Minnesota.

The mother, Erin McAlpin, said it was important for her daughter to see the full picture of her beauty and also a chance for McAlpin to be a part of her daughter’s reality.

“Sometimes Aubrey has to be a brave girl and be in worlds unlike her own. So it’s luck that it turns around and I’m the one who experiences it. I really think it’s important for both parties,” she said.

This is the sixth year for the KC Curly natural hair photoshoot. According to Crissy Curly, she hopes it will become a festival event in the future.
