a beauty & shopping event for women of color

The Vision


Black Girl Beautiful believes that all women of African descent are works of art. Our deep hues deserve tender loving care. Our textured hair is worthy of adoration. Beauty is not defined by the color of one’s skin, but the way darker skinned women are left out of mainstream conversations about beauty, you’d think just the opposite. We need to encourage and uplift the black consumer. Black Girl Beautiful celebrates our melanin, our bodies, our kinky and curly hair, and our graceful spirit. African American beauty shouldn’t be an afterthought. That’s why BGB is here....
