Black Ballad presents: Beauty and inclusivity with Tobi Oredein, Funmi Fetto & Hani Sidow

Tuesday 15th October 18:30 at London - Gower Street

Earlier this year Boots made headlines by announcing its partnership with Rhianna’s Fenty Beauty brand, a landmark for many women who have for too long been excluded from high street beauty brands. However, there is still a long way to go for representation in the beauty industry. Join co-founder of Black Ballad Tobi Oredein as she leads an honest and timely discussion about where the industry has been, where it’s at now and what still needs to change.

She will be speaking with Funmi FettoGlamour Executive Editor and Beauty Director and a former British Vogue Beauty Editor, whose book Palette is not only a first-of-its-kind kind beauty book directly aimed at women of colour, it is a rallying cry for representation and inclusivity.

They’ll both be joined by beauty influencer and author of Insta-glam Hani Sidow, whose Glamour UK column ‘The Glam Hijabi’ breaks taboos about being a beauty-loving Hijab wearer, helping inspire other women on Muslim beauty, fashion and modesty.

Together, they’ll explore issues around beauty, exclusion and empowerment. Come along and bring your questions.
