Saturday July 15th UPN was on the scene for one of the most anticipated events for women of color: CurlFest. Friends and families gathered at Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY to show off their amazing curls, style and shop with the top beauty brands in the business.

CurlFest is now in its fourth year and was started by co-founders Charisse Higgins, Melody Henderson, Simone Mair, Tracey Coleman and Gia Lowe.
