33 Black- and Brown-Owned Beauty Brands to Support

From hair and makeup to skin care and more.

By: Hannah Baxter

Aside from donating to organizations that support black and brown communities and help dismantle systems of violence, as well as offering assistance to protesters who have been arrested (like Black Visions Collective, Reclaim the Block, Know Your Rights Camp, Free Them All for Public Help, and Brooklyn Community Bail Fund, among many others), one of the most consistent ways you can show your support is by directing your dollar to black- and brown-owned brands. The beauty space especially has dozens of brands that are owned and operated by black and brown people (several of whom are women) across hair care, skin care, cosmetics, nails, body care, and wellness.
