Entrepreneurial women of colour excelling in the hair and beauty arena are invited to enter the inaugural PRECIOUS Hair and Awards (PRECIOUSHABA), powered by PREMAE. The awards have launched to provide a platform for women of colour who have launched beauty products and services from their kitchen tables or tablets, often while juggling other roles, yet have managed to grow innovative and successful brands.
The key award categories include:
-Best Haircare Brand, Best Makeup Colour Cosmetics Brand
-Best Skincare (Face and/or body brand)
-Best Online Innovation brand (comprising of online retailers stocking multi-brands, apps or Beauty Box companies)
-People’s Choice Best Beauty/Hair Blogger Award – with an open voting system via Precious Facebook.
The initiative is the result of collaboration between the PRECIOUS Awards, which celebrates women of colour in business and leadership and Dr Clare Anyiam-Osigwe BEM, founder of the multiple award winning beauty brand PREMAE and the PRECIOUS Entrepreneur of the Year 2012. Judges for the awards include Precious Entrepreneur of the year 2016 Florence Adepoju, Founder of MDM Flow, the Cosmetic Scientist who launched her global beauty brand from her garden shed, trichologist and salon owner Latenda Kalimba and YouTube star Lizzie Loves.
The shortlist will be announced in May 2017 at a Precious Networking event hosted at Wah London, Soho followed by the official awards ceremony drinks reception in June at Virgin Money, plus goodie bag sponsorship by Tress Free.
Entries are now open and can be made at: www.haba.preciousawards.com until 8th April 2017
