One Curl At A Time
Who we are...
Kinks and Curls Natural Hair Boutique is Lawrenceville's only one-stop shop natural hair care resource! We are located in the heart of Gwinnett County, serving Northeast Atlanta, including Snellville, Suwanee, Duluth, Norcross, Buford, Conyers and Lithonia. Our goal is to provide a curated selection of natural hair care and beauty products partnered with knowledgeable recommendations.
All of our products are specifically created for naturally kinky and curly hair, but are just as effective on chemically altered textures and those looking to transition. We also offer vegan hair and skincare products, body art quality henna, organic raw goods and our most popular, MIY (Make it Yourself) Bar that features raw unrefined butters, African black soap, clay, and the ability to mix your own custom oil blends.
