Our Story

It started with a 6 year old girl.

One day, she came home from school and asked her Mom why her hair wasn't straight and "pretty" like her classmates. She didn't like her hair and she struggled with accepting herself. Mom felt terrible and wondered how she could help her daughter see herself the way she truly was. And so Mom began to encourage her with positive affirmations, books, and even decided to start wearing her hair natural to encourage her. Mom also bought her a black doll. All this worked wonders, and this amazing little girl started to feel more confident about herself.

But one day she asked, "Why does this doll have skin like mine but her hair is still straight! I wish I had a doll that had braids and curls like mine." She asked Mom if they could make dolls that she and other girls like her could relate to and Beautiful Curly Me was born.

A brand that encourage young girls to love and be confident in who they are.

That girl is Zoe aka Zboss, our founder and CEO. Savvy and creative, she is hands on every step of her way and ready to make a difference in the world!  

That is why for every doll purchased, one is given to an underserved girl because all of our girls deserve to glow! 

Zoe, her Mom Evana and the entire Beautiful Curly Me team are on a mission to inspire and empower the next generation of #curlyandconfident girls that will change the world.

Join us for the ride.
