From to the sidewalk, to the red carpet, to the stage and from the boardroom, to the classroom, to our living rooms, Black women can rock any hairstyle and perfect any makeup trend on the market.

Over the years, the ESSENCE brand has remained committed and unapologetic about our mission to serve Black women deeply. Part of that mission is also to remind the world just how much Black women rock as magazine cover girls.
