5 SA celebs with fashion and beauty brands

The beauty industry is a million-rand industry in South African, it's not surprising that some celebrity favourites have jumped on the business bandwagon.

Pearl Thusi

Black Pearl

Pearl’s haircare range is considered gold in the hair care industry. Not only because it’s locally manufactured but because she’s living proof that her products work. The range can be found at Clicks stores but often flies off the shelves as quickly as it lands.

The range has also inspired a quicker move for other haircare manufacturers to move into the natural hair care industry, something that was much needed. The products are described as being for all hair types including, coily, kinky, zig-zag, and desiring moisture. Whether 3a or 4c curl type, natural hair requires moisture.

DJ Zinhle

As the pillar of strength to many around you, we honour the centrifugal force that we’re able to create! Love being a woman and celebrate being one every day! And to every #FlutterQueen that battles their various circumstances, the hurdles, the sacrifices and the compromises they make, we wish you all inner strength! Happy Women’s Month!”
