CurleeMe was founded by Anthea Ancalade, a UK-born Ghanaian based out of Los Angeles, CA.
The idea of CurleeMe arose in 2018 when Anthea found herself leaving her favorite natural stylists behind each time she moved to a new city. Moving to Glendale, CA and then Sunland, she had the hardest time finding someone close who could work with her coily hair texture. Anthea decided to start doing her own hair and protective styles, but as a mother and entrepreneur, time became of the essence. So she thought, “why isn't there an online directory for natural hair stylists?” A directory that housed hairstylists who cater specifically to natural hair, understanding the care of different textures and necessity of protective styles during dry and cold seasons (as well as for fun!). How convenient would it be to find stylists, and for hairstylists to easily connect with new clientele?
Anthea, being a brand identity and web designer by trade, rose up to the task of building the website she envisioned. Thus, CurleeMe was born.
Now, three years later, CurleeMe is going strong! From hair care tips and tutorials to a directory and product marketplace, we're super excited to see how the platform will continue helping the natural hair community.
As both a hairstylist directory and product marketplace for kinky, coil & curly hair, CurleeMe is a trusted place for naturals and hair stylists to flourish.
Never give up on your natural hair!
