The Lotta girls behind the startup:

Lotta Curls was founded by Claudia Bauer and Christina Niederl. They are working on a mission to revolutionise and simplify curling routines for all hair types.

Even right back when they finished school they knew they wanted to start a business together. 5 years and countless ideas later, the time had finally come and they set up their own marketing agency. Less than a year later, the idea for Lotta Curls was born.

How did Lotta Curls come about?

After years of using curling irons and straighteners to get curls, the two young founders found their hair was looking pretty worse for wear from the heat. They needed a far more gentle technique. Unfortunately, the social media trend of braiding socks or bathrobe ties into one's hair did not live up to expectations. They were uncomfortable to sleep in and didn't look great either.

So they sat down at the sewing machine and created a solution for millions of women. After months of development, their product was ready in the summer of 2022: Lotta Curls - the curl band for "a lotta curls".

They had a highly successful launch at Glow, Europe's biggest beauty fair, appeared on television and won 2nd place out of more than 80 participants at a big regional pitch event.

What next?

At the moment, the duo are focussing on expanding into other European countries. The two founders want to create a heat-free routine for different hair types and become THE curl band on the market. Christina and Claudia love developing and fine-tuning their products - stay tuned for what's to come!
