Crowns & Contours is the vision of Britney Chambers. Created in her dorm room her Junior year of college, the company was launched June 3rd, 2017.
A lover of all things beauty, the 21 year old wanted a physical representation of her belief in the power of health in attaining beauty.
Created to encourage women of color to embrace the things that make them unique and beautiful, the company goes deeper than outward appearances.
Britney started testing her passion for the beauty realm by starting her YouTube channel as a teen. She gained knowledge of hair care, skin care and makeup by watching, reading and speaking to those more experienced than her at the time.
She soon realized that she was making a grave mistake however when she started putting beauty over health. "I would choose to cover up a breakout with tons of makeup rather than actually tend to my skin" reminisced the co-founder.
"College didn't make it any easier. I was making poor dietary choices, not getting enough sleep, neglecting my beauty regimens and it started to show. My skin reached its worst point and my hair stopped growing, it was breaking and shedding. At first I couldn't understand why. I would spend my last bit of money on higher end products because they had quality ingredients but I just wouldn't see the same results that I used to. I realized that my issue was two fold. The first was that I was using products that weren't made with my level of versatility in mind. My beauty routine was constantly changing because so was everything else in my life. So I needed products that were multipurpose. The second issue was that I was simply focused on the outer while neglecting the inner. I needed to find a balance."
Britney took her struggles and turned them into a purpose and mission from which a company would be born. In addition to being the CEO, she is also the primary curator and product creator. Striving to always bring the gems of Crowns & Contours the best products, the Business Administration major spends an extensive amount of time in research and development.
"I encourage everyone to write their own narrative of the word beautiful. Never let someone else's insecurities shape the way you live your life." - Britney Chambers
