Black-Owned Businesses in Beauty and Fashion

blackownedbusinesses

What’s up dazzling babes? I hope that you are taking care of yourselves as this year surely has not been easy. Over the past week like so many other content creators, I chose to mute myself in favor of educating myself on racism and sharing resources on how to be an anti-racist. That’s why I want to take some time today to show some love to a few black-owned businesses.

The past few weeks have given me a lot to think about in terms of how I’m currently using this platform and how I want to use it in the future. While I’m not 100% sure what that looks like I know that I will continue to support the fight for equality and use my platform to speak out against injustices.

I encourage everyone to use their voice to sign petitions, donate, and educate themselves on racism. I have some resources on my links page where you can find more information on how you can help.

Instead of continuing with the content that I had scheduled for today, I want to take the time to show some love to some black-owned businesses. If you want to learn more about why it’s important to support black-owned businesses then check out this article by Green Business Network.

14 Black-Owned Businesses You Need to Check Out

Ladii Parts

I discovered Ladii Parts when I had the opportunity to go to an event last fall. They sell sexy lingerie, hosiery, loungewear, and more. I actually picked up these cute boss hair clips while I was at the event. Because who doesn’t love a little sparkly something?

Curls

One of the first brands to carry certified organic ingredients and responsibly source from fair trade suppliers, Curls caters to women who want quality products for their natural hair. They carry various lines for your curly girl needs like their Blueberry Bliss growth line or their So So Moist Vitamin C products.

Grace Eleyae

Grace Eleyae provides protective hair accessories so your “do” always looks it’s best. I purchased the Slap (silk-lined cap) about five years ago. This cap is perfect for preserving your style whether you wear your hair natural, curly, or straight. When I wear it to bed I find that I wake up in the morning with my style looking frizz-free and shiny! They also sell headbands, pillowcases, scrunchies, and more!

The Established

If you’re all about keeping your skincare minimal then you’re gonna want to check out this line. All of their products are handcrafted in small batches and formulated without parabens, sulfates, or synthetic dyes.

Liha Beauty

Created by two women with African roots living in the UK this beauty brand offers natural soaps, oils, candles, and more. They also offer online workshops where you can learn to make your own natural beauty products!

Get Your Nails Did

Get Your Nails Did sells eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and toxin-free polishes. Their nail paint remover is even made up of soy-based ingredients and acetone-free.

The Crayon Case

I am obsessed with The Crayon Case’s Insta feed! They are such a bold colorful and fun brand. I currently have my eye on the gorgeous colorful Watch Me Blush eyeshadow palette.

Pholk Beauty

This brand was created by Niambi an academic turned beauty activist. She uses her knowledge of African Diaspora’s healing and herbalist traditions in each product at Pholk Beauty. That means all of the products are created using natural ingredients. And they are locally made in Jersey City, NJ! I’m adding the Werkacita Beauty Balm and the Rose Gardenia Skinnectar to my wishlist!
