24 Black-Owned Grooming Brands to Support Now and Always

Here’s the thing about grooming: Everyone wants to look good, but everyone has specific issues that they need products to address. The problem comes when the needs of certain people are not met. People of color have tremendous buying power, and yet, product lines directed to their specific needs and founded by Black entrepreneurs are underrepresented on the shelves of major retailers (or relegated to a separate section). Since fashion designer Aurora James started the 15 Percent Pledge, a call for major retailers to dedicate 15 percent of shelf space to Black-owned brands to support Black-owned business; and the Pull Up For Change initiative, started by beauty brand founder Sharon Chuter, asking fashion and beauty brands to disclose how many on their staff, including executive teams, are BIPOC—the brands you’re using to wash your face and condition your beard are in the spotlight.

This is all great, but you don’t need to sit around waiting for your local drugstore to change its stock to support Black-owned grooming companies. You can use your wallet to put your money where your mouth is and find exciting new brands to overhaul your grooming routine. Start with this list, which includes some of our own favorite brands plus recommendations from other amazing lists out there. You may already know some of these brands and some you may not, but they can all fit into your grooming routine no matter how simple or extensive it is.
