When it comes to beauty, it’s always been us.
From pioneering self-made millionaires to the visionaries of today.
Ingenuity is in our DNA.
We are our own blueprint.
Generation to generation, Black women have pushed the boundaries of what beauty is and what beauty can be.
We are artists and architects, influencers and innovators who create from our desire to celebrate ourselves on our terms.
From the art form that is Black hair to our melanin that is a canvas for self expression.
