13 Black-owned beauty brands you should know

These 13 brands are not only Black-owned companies, but also female owned, and are the ones making a real change in the beauty industry right now. From the friends who started a natural haircare brand together after noticing a lack of naturals in existing curly hair products, to the woman who started a makeup company to celebrate her Nigerian heritage.

Some of them you will have most definitely heard before (how could we not include Pat McGrath Labs and Fenty Beauty), but others, like Uoma and Liha Beauty may be new to you. Not to mention the likes of Briogeo and Bouclème who have gained a cult following online, thanks to their dedication to every curly haired girl out there. Oh and we can't forget Dizziak, who won a Cosmopolitan Beauty Award in 2019 because their Deep Conditioner is that good.

A purchase from one of these brands will mean you're not only support black female entrepreneurs, but also in the case of Afro Hair and Skin Co and Bouclème, British brands that put ingredient sustainability at the forefront of their ethos.
