Nigerian natural hair sisters Abby and Ivie Omoruyi are the duo behind Catherine Marion, an online shop that provides quality weaves and wigs catering to African American hair of all textures. Ivie's going natural inspired Abby to do the same, but her experience transitioning from chemically straight hair to her natural texture proved challenging. Tired of wearing wigs that looked too "wiggy," Abby teamed up with Ivie to launch a line of more realistic-looking, multi-textured wigs. Next up for Catherine Marion is the Flower Child Curls organic product line and a book geared towards simplifying the natural hair maintenance process.
