Being a black woman can be challenging, and some of our favorite celebrities identify with this. Black women are not nearly as celebrated as their white counterparts for their talents and beauty.


Although black celebrities get their shine here and there, they aren't immune to the world's discrimination. These women have grueling interactions with hair and makeup stylists who can't cater to them on sets.

For the reasons above, black female celebrities have tried to change the perception of beauty for all. We've noticed four game-changing stars who are positively transforming the hair aisles for black women.

Pattern Beauty By Tracee Ellis Ross


Tracee is one of Hollywood's biggest stars, and one would think that stylists rush to work on her hair. Although there's more diversity in Hollywood beauty teams now, this hasn't always been the case.

The Grown-ish actress told Refinery29 that she did her hair while working on the set of Girlfriends. Her experience with learning how to do her hair equipped her to start her haircare line, Pattern Beauty.

"I've worked on jobs where there was a lot of support, celebration, and understanding of my Blackness, but when it came to hair, I've been my own little lone ranger."

Says Tracee Ellis Ross

TPH By Taraji P. Henson


Taraji P. Henson also shared her disappointing experiences with hairstylists on film sets. The Empire star was inspired to create her haircare line after struggling with scalp treatment and hairstyling for work.

"I felt like no one cared about my scalp, so I had to create a solution for myself,"

Says Taraji P. Henson

Her namesake hair brand focuses on scalp treatment and includes a serum, scalp scrub, and conditioner. TPH is available to purchase at Target and offers a solution to a problem that most black women face.

Flawless By Gabrielle Union


Gabrielle Union first launched her hair care line with her longtime hairstylist in 2017. The actress later relaunched her brand to better suit the black community and become exclusively black focussed.

"My first order of business was to reclaim my company and become 100% Black-owned, Black-led, and Black-marketed,"

Says Gabrielle Union

Since the relaunch that further includes black stylists and experts, Flawless has been doing very well. Even stars such as Alicia Keys, Zendaya, and Regina King love Union's accessible products.

Sienna Naturals And Issa Rae


Issa Rae collaborates on Sienna Naturals, which is a clean beauty hair care line. Rae presents that there is no one better to advise and work on black women's hair than black women.

Issa's venture into haircare is natural after the unpleasant experiences she's had with white hair stylists. Rae strives to make the brand accessible for black women with differing budgets and hair textures.

"This is an entire ecosystem that is created to serve all textured hair types, and Black women are at the center,"

Says Issa Rae
