Support the community by shopping these fashion and beauty brands.

In addition to educating ourselves, encouraging conversations with family, friends and colleagues and donating to organizations fighting against racial injustice, one great actionable way to support the Black community is to #ShopBlack from Black-owned businesses

To help you support Black entrepreneurs, we put together a list of Black-owned fashion and beauty companies. Black business owners navigate new ways of serving their communities and handling the day-to-day stress of keeping a business afloat, all while dealing with the continued fight against racial injustice and systemic racism — which have plagued American life for centuries. Supporting these companies means so much as we strive to improve the systems within our country and around the world.

Below, we've listed the Black businesses in the fashion and beauty spheres that we love. Scroll through to learn more about these amazing brands.
