BBR’s Year In Review: Must Know Moments
Transformative Strides in Beauty Equity
In a groundbreaking year for beauty equity, the ratification of the SAG-AFTRA contract marked a historic win, mandating qualified hair and makeup artists for diverse talent. This, coupled with pioneering legislation in New Jersey and New York, set new standards in beauty education, focusing on inclusive training for textured hair.
These achievements are not just milestones—they are bold steps towards rectifying long-standing challenges in the beauty industry, championing a new era of diversity and excellence.
Our Black Beauty Excellence Luncheon during NYFW was a highlight, celebrating individuals who’ve made significant contributions to the beauty industry. Honorees like Tym Buacharern, Yancey Edwards, Akua Robinson, Jackie Aina, and Danessa Myricks were recognized for their transformative impacts in various capacities. This event not only honored their achievements but also underscored our commitment to elevating black excellence in beauty.
The BBR Portal has emerged as a key platform in connecting brands with top-tier beauty professionals proficient in all hair textures and skin tones. This initiative has opened up numerous opportunities for beauty professionals and has been instrumental in promoting diversity and inclusivity in the industry.
The Big Motion: Amplifying Talent at NYFW
Our role in NYFW’s BIG MOTION show was a testament to our commitment to inclusivity. We enabled over 40 beauty professionals to showcase their expertise at this major event, highlighting our dedication to breaking barriers and championing diversity in the fashion and beauty world.
