Ahni Beauty Supply
Two ladies shared a dream and wondered whether it could become a reality. If you’re reading this, then you know it is reality. These ladies of AHNI Beauty Supply dared to enter the beauty supply marketplace in an environment dominated by corporate entities with dissimilar cultural backgrounds. As others have also climbed this mountain of obstacles, so did the founders of Ahni Beauty Supply; with their funding, determination, and the help of their families, Ahni Beauty Supply was born.
Although the enterprise is a business, it is grounded in family. At their core is caring for one another and the customers, our friends. Ahni Beauty Supply treats everyone with respect and dignity. In keeping true to who they are, they desire to help you beautify your hair, body, and spirit.
Why Ahni Beauty Supply Loves Black Girl Sunscreen:
We chose black girl sunscreen because it was requested by our patrons. Once we stocked the product we realized how great of a product it is with a variety of options. A lot of our customers are excited when they see that we carry the BGS brand. Last, but most important we are proud to carry black owned brands!
