Last Friday, we were invited to the inaugural Black Beauty and Fashion Awards (BBFA) at Porchester Hall in West London.
It was an honour to be BBFA finalists based on the people's choice vote and we were thrilled to see the awards celebrate the achievements of the people & businesses who provide beauty services and products to people of colour in the UK.
Glamour was on full blast on the night and the entertainment was memorable, but let's get to the outcome!
We're pleased to announce that we won the ‘Best Natural Hair Brand’ award!
Thank you to every person who voted, retweeted, shared and supported us. We'd also like to thank the panel of judges, we're elated and blessed by the decision!
Congratulations to Vinna Best of Curly Treats Fest who won the ‘Influencer of the Year' award. We were also excited to see fellow Black, British businesses: Shea Butter Cottage, Slider Cuts & Treasure Tress walk away with awards.
Keep an eye out for our newsletter with a special celebration offer! As mentioned in our acceptance speech, we'll be crowdfunding (raising the money we need to grow Afrocenchix through giving special rewards to supporters) so that we can be an even better natural hair care brand by expanding our range and increasing our production (you guys have us in the kitchen twice a week right now!)
