In commemoration of International Women’s Day, we thought we should celebrate by acknowledging these amazing female-led brands built through years of hard work and dedication to get where they are today. As founders of their respective brands, we honour these women who pave the path for the next generation of women everywhere.

First, we have Mindy McKnight, the #1 hair educator on YouTube with her channel Cute Girls Hairstyles and the founder of Hairitage, an inclusive, clean and affordable haircare line that empowers all hair types and textures. Hairitage started out of the need for affordable and inclusive products that worked for her family’s hair needs and textures. In a blended family of 8 there tend to be different hair types, patterns and textures. The hairline comprises 34 products which include different benefits such as Cleanse, Hydrate, Condition, Restore, Style and Specialty with their fragrance-free, colour care and purple shampoo and conditioners, all done with naturally-derived ingredients like Apple Cider Vinegar, Aloe Vera, Apricot Seed Powder, Lemongrass, Jojoba Protein, Vitamin B5, etc.

Jaimee Lupton caused a huge disruption in the beauty industry with her viral haircare brand MONDAY, which is the brainchild of the New Zealand entrepreneur and beauty enthusiast.
