I’m Irene Ndobo, founder of Nubian Beauty. My inspiration behind starting the company was to offer premium products and services at a competitive and affordable price. As a consumer of beauty products and a regular at beauty salons and spas, I found there was often a compromise between quality and affordability, as I believe that having a quality product doesn’t always have to equate to breaking bank.
After a few years of school and another few years of trying to enter the working world, I decided to explore the idea of starting my own company, which led to the birth of Nubian Beauty. It’s been a while in the making and I’m inspired by the many women who’ve taken a leap of faith and become entrepreneurs.
We started out as an online store and on the 14th October we opened our first beauty salon, a space where you can get a glance into what our brand is about, shop our hair extensions and receive a variety of beauty treatments and services.
