There hasn’t been an official announcement made just yet, but after a post Beyoncé uploaded to Instagram Tuesday, people are abuzz about a potential venture she is about to embark on in the haircare industry.
In the post, the singer and songwriter uploaded a carousel of three images. In the first, she is seen wearing all white while looking in the mirror while teasing her hair. The second image is a picture from her childhood, where she is seen getting her hair braided while sitting in a salon chair. And in the third, the big reveal.
“How many of y’all knew my first job was sweeping hair in my mama’s salon?” she wrote in a handwritten note. “I was exposed to so many different kinds of entrepreneurial women in her salon. I saw firsthand how the ways we nurture and celebrate hair can directly impact our souls.”
She continued: “I watched her heal and be of service to so many women,” and “having learned so much on my hair journey, I’ve always dreamed of carrying on her legacy. I can’t wait for you to experience what I’ve been creating.”
According to Technavio, “the hair care market in the United States is projected to grow by USD 1.95 billion with a CAGR of 4.82% during the forecast period 2021 to 2026.”
It’s no wonder why the I’m That Girl star would want to get in on a piece of the pie.
