In 1905 Madame Cj Walker revolutionized the hair care industry by creating, selling and manufacturing products specifically geared toward Black women.  1910 she created the Madame Cj Walker Manufacturing Company, employing over 3000 women.  Since that time women of color have both created their own beauty supplies and operated their own beauty salons.  However, we left vacant the distribution of beauty supplies for Women of Color.  Although we are the largest consumers of Beauty Supplies We-Do–Not-Sell Beauty Supplies.  According to a Huffington Post Article in 2104 the black hair industry is potentially a 500 billion dollar business. We are consumers but we are not producers and distributors.

On September 17th 2017 that is all about to change.  It’s time for a TAKEOVER!  Harlem Fashion Week in partnership with E.M.E.R.G.E  Natural Beauty Industry Alliance  have joined forces to create a beauty supply pop up tour! Coming to your neighborhood these women of color are going to sell the beauty supplies that you use everyday and together they are going to TAKEOVER the beauty supply industry.
