How many of us, like Kimberly, remember the days of watching as our mothers, grandmothers, and aunties got their "hair dyed, fried and laid to the side", whether in the back of the house or at the salon? There was a spirit of camaraderie and kinship, and the conversation was always electrifying no matter the topic.
EIGHTH+KIN honors the brave and groundbreaking women of our past – like Miss Yvonne – ensuring their stories are heard by creating a culture centered on community and Friend+Kinship. In the spirit of reclamation, EIGHTH+KIN provides a gathering place for beauty enthusiasts to immerse themselves in a true, multi-sensory shopping experience while discovering emerging and established Black+Brown prestige beauty brands. Shoppers can play in makeup, take a selfie or two in our various photo spaces, treat themselves to a beauty service in our very own salon suite or just sit back and relax with a glass of wine after brunch.
We want to keep the recipes (rituals)going, of course there are highly curated virtual and in-person experiential learning workshops, pop-up activations & services to help our community stay on top of application techniques, perfect skincare rituals and explore hair care
and style trends.
Although EIGHTH+KIN was created in the sprit of cleansing and starting anew, the mission to advocate for the disruptors of tomorrow remains the same. We will always uplift the founders of today and serve as a champion for the founders and creators of tomorrow. Several services are available to established and aspiring beauty brands through various retail Partnerships + Bootcamps and events to meet the beauties behind the brands.
EIGHTH+KIN sets the standard for elevated, emerging brown beauty. Say goodbye to the mainstream beauty experience (you know the one) and experience beauty better with your newest kinfolk in beauty at Eighth+Kin!
