50 In 50: Black Owned Beauty Supply Stores Around The Country
By Rachel George
Hair care is a multi-billion dollar industry, especially amongst the black community. African Americans spend an average of $54 million on beauty and hair products alone, according to a 2018 Neilson report. Some of this revenue is attributed to the increasingly growing number of black-owned beauty supply stores. Each year, more black entrepreneurs are joining the beauty and hair care industry, opening doors for other black entrepreneurs and brands. The Black Owned Beauty Supply Association has helped open over 400 black-owned beauty supply stores around the world for the last 15.
If you’re looking for a Black-owned beauty supply store near you, search no further. Here are 50 of the best beauty supply stores, 1 from each state.
