We recognise that Beauty and Fashion are inextricably linked. Personal style, freedom to express and experiment with Fashion are also part of today’s beauty culture. Beauty and Fashion also play a huge role in understanding more about our heritage.

Cheryl, Cosmetic Scientist and BBFA Founder says “advancement is taking place in the industry concerning black beauty, hair and fashion and it must be recognised! There’s much more that needs to be done, especially in the areas of advertising to the demographic and supporting entrepreneurs in the field, however, this annual event will assist in the progress as well as recording successes made".
We are moving beauty forward; championing entrepreneurism, promoting and celebrating diversity. We aim to give consumers of black beauty products a voice that can be heard clearly and help carve a market space for new businesses, products and innovation.
