Making Beauty Products More Accessible

Founded in 2019 by Jaida Day, Black Beauty Near You was created from the lack of hair and skin products Black students have on and near UC San Diego's campus. With this disparity, Day realized that having access to these products on campus is essential and more convenient.

Her first step towards making these resources closer and more accessible is to make a change first-hand. That’s where Black Beauty Near You comes in. We will assist in bringing those essential beauty products closer to the Black community on campus and always value the opinions of our customers and listen to what they need.
