Pretty White Female
It was the politics of Afro hair a few weeks ago and on Tuesday 10th June The Beauty Project are hosting Pretty White Female - How Beauty Can Appeal to Every Woman which is an event that looks at Women of Colour and the beauty industry. Chaired by beauty journalist, broadcaster and blogger, Sali Hughes, she will be joined by health & beauty director of Women's Health, Anita Bhagwandas, presenter Gemma Cairney and founders of multicultural beauty site, ThandieKay, Kay Montano and Thandie Newton. They will be discussing whether beauty brands are doing enough for Women of Colour. This is such a great topic and one that really needs to be addressed but my only gripe is that the panel should have someone who is a darker shade. This was rightly addressed by Natalie Clue from Beauty Pulse London on her Instagram account - the reply by Sali was that women of a darker shade had been invited to join the panel but there was either no response or no interest. You can read the conversation here.
Either way we will be at the event. We hope to see you down there.
Pretty White Female takes place at Selfridges London, for more information or to book tickets please visit the website.
