Nanda Cury created Blog das Cabeludas in 2008. The site’s objective has been to publish photos of women she finds on the streets, who have curly hair and afros. She has also conceived, togheter with two friends, the Marcha do Orgulho Crespo Brasil (Afro Hair Pride March), a movement started in São Paulo in 2015, that has spread all over Brazil.
Her work as a street photographer was inspired by sites such as The Sartorialist, Face Hunter, Fresh Fruits and Humans of New York. She uses her smartphone camera and the internet, to promote these photos and stories through different online media, so the content can serve as an inspiration to women all around the world, encouraging them to stop straightening their hair, and to embrace their curls or natural hair texture.
Cury holds a bachelor’s degree in International Relations from FAAP, and an MBA in Digital Marketing from the Fundação Getúlio Vargas. Besides the blog, she works as a digital marketing consultant.
