KNC SCHOOL OF BEAUTY

ASSIGNMENTS + RULES

HEY, BABE!

Thank you so much for attending KNC School of Beauty! As a Black female entrepreneur, it has always been extremely important to me to pay it forward and provide opportunities for emerging business like-minded individuals. Having a skincare line has always been my dream and I want to help other Black entrepreneurs who have similar goals and visions.

I’m forever grateful to be able to host this initiative with super boss babes like Nancy Twine, Melissa Butler, Trinity Mouzon and Shontay Lundy and create an educational platform for emerging and future Black entrepreneurs to learn how to navigate the beauty industry and successfully launch and grow their businesses.

Big thanks to my long term partner, Revlon, for their help in addressing the inequity within the beauty space and supporting KNC School of Beauty by covering tuition with a $25,000 donation to the NAACP Legal and Educational Fund.
