This month is when we celebrate Black History Month in the UK. Following the killing of George Floyd and the subsequent Black Lives Matter protests, it's vital that we celebrate the Black community in the UK. While we’re not here to give you a history lesson (although you can go donate and support The Black Curriculum which addresses the lack of Black British history in the UK Curriculum), we can do what we know: support and celebrate the best Black-owned British fashion and beauty brands.

Grace Wales-Bonner key theme for her A/W 2020 collection is "second-generation Jamaicans living in London during the 1970s," as seen with this super chic blouse. Go to the designer for super-cool tailoring.
Never did pastels look so enticing. Cold Laundry has been wooing us over Instagram with its pared-back aesthetics and simple shirting, tailoring and loungewear, all in pastel hues. Be quick, though, as nearly everything is sold out right now.
While candles aren’t the only products that Liha offers (see its skincare and soaps too), it’s this candle that smells of lavender and hibiscus, as well as geranium and frankincense, that’s caught our eye.
Dizziak only launched a couple of years ago but already boasts a cult following. While this does work on all hair types it’s particularly great for Afro hair, and it doesn’t rely on harsh chemicals. Worth trying its conditioner, which has rave reviews.
The Afro Hair & Skin Co. not only has some of the chicest packing we’ve seen in a while (always nice to see something pretty on our beauty shelves), it’s products are loved. From shampoo bars to face masks, we guarantee you’ll love it all.
