What are “Charlotte Noire Bonnets”?

After working as a hairstylist in the Geneva area for years, Jess Cali noticed a demand from her European clients for a product with virtually no European presence.

With a personal commitment to the care of curly hair, Charlotte Noire Bonnets was established to meet each client’s needs and to introduce a useful and stylish product to the women of Western Europe.
