Episode 32

Black Beauty Industry - A Billion Dollar Business So Why So Few Black Women Owners of Beauty Supply Stores?

The Black Beauty Business rakes in billions of dollars each year, but there are only a handful of companies owned by Black Women with a store selling the products that are targeted almost exclusively to our community.

Meet Pam Thompson of My Shade and Texture. She was tired of not seeing people who looked like her as the owners of beauty supply stores that were marketing and selling exclusively to Black women.

Find out more about her store, how she was able to remain successful during the pandemic, and the scare tactics competitors, with a stronghold in the market, tried to use to keep her from opening.

Visit the store's website to learn more about Pam and how you can place an order from anywhere: www.myshadeandtexture.com
