With over 1.8 million black people in the UK, there are stories of black women traveling miles and miles to find a black hair shop, either physical or online, that cater to our needs. Despite black women having high spending potential, the UK beauty industry still ignores the needs of black women. In the UK, black women account for a total of 80% for hair products. An average black woman spending £137.52 more on their beauty products per year than their white counterparts.
Not a lot of black hair shops are black-owned, instead the sub-industry is dominated by South Asian men.
As black women spend a large amount of their money on black hair products, we need to uplift the brands doing the work making these black hair products accessible to more of the Black population. This post will take a look at the black owned hair shops and online stores in the UK.
