Julian Addo

Nominated by: Cheriss & Company

"I haven't met Julian personally, but this woman recently BLESSED my natural hair journey.

While "quarantining" at home, I spotted a Youtube review/tutorial for a product that I remembered seeing in a super adorable Jayde Kamille video on Instagram. I was eager to figure out how to master my curls (translation: frustrated and over it) so I watched the hair stylist's video and was instantly motivated. I tried one of the products and my curls LOVED it.

I nominate Julian, not only because her fabulous product line, Adwoa Beauty, inspired me to continue embracing and exploring my curls, but also because I learned that her commitment to her business/customers is so strong that she actually turned down a distribution deal with a huge retailer in the early years of her business -- that takes guts, courage and vision. 

And I'm also cheering for her because this month she launched on Sephora.com. It looks like she kept pushing and found the right offer in the end. So yep ... she deserves to be celebrated! - J'Nae

Why are we doing this?

The heart of our mission is to shine light on Everyday Women: the woman holding down the front desk at your office, the woman at church working on her 4th degree - your mother, your sister, your mentor, your best friend. These women may not grace the cover of Vogue or Forbes, but it's no question, they deserve way more recognition than they get.
