Drawing on four generations of traditional West African beauty recipes, Richelieu Dennis co-founded Sundial Brands in 1992 to help more consumers address their unique skin and hair care needs. In addition to his work championing inclusion in the beauty industry, Dennis launched Sundial’s Community Commerce program to provide educational and entrepreneurial resources to women’s manufacturing cooperatives around the world.

Tristan Walker, Bevel

After years experiencing irritation and razor bumps from mass-market shaving products, Tristan Walker wanted to make shaving simpler for men with coarse and curly hair. So he founded Bevel, part of his Walker & Co. family of brands that’s designing health and beauty solutions specifically for people of color. Walker has also been named a USA Today Person of the Year and Fortune Magazine’s 40 Under 40.

How do you turn a hobby into a multi-million dollar hair and skin care empire? Just ask Lisa Price, founder of Carol’s Daughter. She started making homemade fragrances and natural beauty products in her Brooklyn kitchen in 1993 and hasn’t looked back — bringing Carol’s Daughter from neighborhood flea markets to the Oprah Winfrey Show to a L’Oréal acquisition and beyond.
