Texture on the Runway, that took place last Saturday in New York City, is one unique runway show where curls are embraced and the center of attention. Five brands put together five amazing looks to celebrate every hair texture.

We got major inspiration from Cantu hot runway looks. Naturally, we also got the details on how to recreate these styles.
