TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A local nonprofit is teaching young girls in the community the beauty of their kinks, coils and curls.

Curls for Queen, a non profit, is accepting donations for their second annual back to school hair drive.

They're providing low income students with hair-care products and accessories to help boost their confidence and teach them the power in wearing their crown.

Founder Makayla Fedd says she was taught that your hair makes a statement. It is more than just a style.

She says seeing the reaction of these girls when they get their hair done is the reason she started this non profit.

"Knowing that these girls are having a different view of themselves it gives me like butterflies and almost purpose also and then it makes me think of when I was younger and what I would've wanted to know how beautiful I actually am and to be able to express that," Fedd said.

People can drop off their donations for the curls for queens back to school drive at Eve's Beauty Supply, Braiding Element and Kings and Queen Salon/Barbershop.

Donations will be accepted until Sept. 15.
