Dana’s Beauty Supply
As a product overwhelmingly sold by Koreans to Black Americans, Black hair care and beauty supply stores have often served as both the site and object of tensions between Black and Korean communities and a marker of the white supremacist agenda to divide us. Dana’s Beauty Supply constructs an experimental beauty supply store and hair gel manufacturing lab, a model for what a Korean-owned beauty supply can exist as in our modern times
With fully-stocked inventory curated by Paris Beauty Supplyz, blowout sale prices, and proceeds being reinvested to support Black entrepreneurship, it reimagines the beauty supply as a space for critical dialogue, accountability, creativity, and community while servicing your beauty supply needs.
