URBANBEAUTYCOLLECTIVE.COM is the go-to gathering place for ethnic style professionals and the people they inspire. The photos, forums and tips are from real, working black beauty pros with hands-on experience, not high-paid editors who give advice in theory.
URBANBEAUTYCOLLECTIVE.COM is the online community of the acclaimed nationwide network, Urban Beauty Collective (UBC).
Launched in June 2003, UBC is an invitation-only, national network of the best and brightest African-American, Afro-Caribbean, African and Afro-Latino hair salons and barbershops in the top 15 urban markets. UBC consists of more than 12,000 beauty environments in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Baltimore, Miami, San Francisco/Oakland, Memphis, Charlotte and New Orleans.
UBC is the catalyst for an exclusive promotional program called UBC-TV, which provides customized in-salon entertainment to patrons from the comfort of their trusted stylist's chair. UBC-TV is a branded-DVD delivered to salon doorsteps each month, showcasing the latest in movies, music, television and lifestyle brands. UBC-TV clients have included the following film and television companies, among others: ABC, BET, BLOCKBUSTER, CAPITOL, COLUMBIA TRISTAR, DISNEY, DREAMWORKS, FOX, FX, GIANT MAGAZINE, GEFFEN, IFC, JIVE, LIONSGATE, MGM, MTV FILMS, NEW LINE CINEMA, PARAMOUNT, SOAPNET, SONY, TARGET, THE CW, UNIVERSAL, UPN, USA, VERITY and WARNER BROS.
