January has come and gone, so you know what time it is… Blackity Black History Month! Although we all should celebrate our Blackness 365 days a year, seven days a week, this monumental month is the perfect time to go in overdrive. And what better way to showcase our power and dedication than by buying black with Black-owned brands!
As Black people — from Afro-Caribbean to Afro-Latino — we’re known to be very prideful. So, pledging our loyalty and support to the Black-owned brand is a great way to get the ball rolling. At one point, the industry made it a point to exclude us. Now, Black creatives have flipped the script and created an industry filled with brands created by us for us, especially the beauty world.
That said, we must show Black-owned beauty brands how much they mean to us via our coins. We’re all we got, so we must use our Black dollars wisely.
With that in mind, it’s time to whip out our wallets. Black-owned brands have taken over the makeup, hair, skincare, and body care lanes over the last five years. So, if you need a rehaul or are looking for new brands to fancy, we have you covered!
Here are 10 Black-owned beauty brands worth shopping through Black History Month and beyond! Grab your credit, secure a Wi-Fi connection, flex your fingers, and get ready to shop as you, please.
Happy Blackity Black History Month, brothers and sisters! Let’s make it a positive one!
