WoBusu offers limited edition hair accessories that will enhance any look. We particularly love the brand’s hairdoo-rag collection, which is lined with satin, and its standout scrunchies. CEO and Founder Adwoa Adusei created the line as “a conceptual basis for the expression of the African Diaspora”. The brand name translates to “a coined word for family”. WoBusu is all about feeling at home, showing support and celebrating style.
CEO and Founder Bianca Rush loved wearing extensions and needed a satin cup option that would hold them in place. Satin cups were generally meant for shorter hair, so she created this line to do just that. The silk cap can be adjusted to suit all hair lengths and styles, making it the first of its kind to do so.
Thank goodness for Naturalicious. The black-owned, organic, all-natural hair brand was created to take the frustration out of hair care. And that’s exactly what it does, especially for curly girls. Founder and CEO Gwen Jimmere is the first African American woman to hold a patent for natural hair products. Naturalicious was launched after Jimmere lost her job during a divorce with a young child. Besides being inspiring, the products are exactly what the hair doctor ordered.
Bomba Curls was created by Lulu Cordero, an Afro-Latina who shares her Dominican beauty secrets for full, beautiful hair. Bomba Curls uses super high quality organic ingredients so you can achieve maximum lengths and bountiful curls.
Sunday II Sunday aims to fill a void in the haircare space, bridging the gap between those with textured hair and those who work out. Founder Keenan Beasley created the line to support women with active lifestyles. “I didn’t want them to feel like they had to go to a salon, sit still and avoid sweating at all costs to feel beautiful. In fact, they are even more beautiful because of their lifestyle I wanted to point that out,” he says. These products are the best for removing sweat, buildup, and environmental damage that occurs between washes.
Founded by Dafina Smith, Covet & Mane helps women add volume with luxury hand-tied hair extensions (including innovative new textured extensions). Smith grew up in the beauty products business (her family founded the iconic Sunny’s Hair & Wigs). She says a trip to the beauty supply store is often one of the first and most demoralizing experiences for a black woman. So she’s committed to changing that by advancing social justice and making black women feel beautiful.
Karen Young shook up the shaving industry when she launched the world premiere Single edge safety razor designed specifically for women. The brand was created out of a lack of shaving options aimed at women and as a way for Karen to end her razor burn and ingrown hairs. She is committed to challenging beauty standards and encourages embracing our complexities and strengths.
