Curly hair is wild and untamed like a lion but even an untamed lion is one to take caution with; I can assure you curly hair does not bite, for the most part. I sat down with Holly Perry of Posh Little Button to talk about her awesome shop, her equally if not more awesome curls, and people who feel it’s acceptable verbalize their disapproval of other’s hair choices in the workplace – Spoiler – it’s not. Here is our Q&A I kept it short and sweet as she was busy with lots of orders to complete! (Link to shop down below- seriously her items are so cute!)
