© 2018 Brown Beauty Co-Op

Welcome to the Brown Beauty Co-op! A partnership between Marjani, the premier indie beauty retailer for “brown girl approved” skincare and cosmetics, and Product Junkie, a natural hair start-up that aims to offer naturalista DIY-ers an in-store haven. Located in the District of Columbia, this one of a kind cooperative beauty space is not only a one-stop beauty and shopping experience, but it is also the place to be for brown beauty focused events and an incubator for emerging beauty brands to showcase their products and services.


We are the brown girls’ beauty playground!

Beauty is colorful


"...a much-needed shift that makes The Brown Beauty Co-Op feel especially timely."

KeNisha Ruff


Marie Hunter Beauty Founder & Creative Director, KeNisha Ruff, began her beauty career as a licensed cosmetologist in Madison, Wisconsin. Her passion for skincare and cosmetics led her through a professional journey in retail cosmetics, then to high end salons and spas, and now to her current role as a Professional Makeup Artist and Creative Director of Marie Hunter Beauty.  She isn’t just another lipstick aficionado; she’s an expert in the entire process of cosmetics formulation - from product development to package design. This explains why when launching Marie Hunter Beauty, she spent five years traveling the world to identify the best and most ethical cosmetic laboratories fit for the creation of her beauty brainchild. Today, those same laboratories that produce MHB’s cult favorite lipsticks like Boss Lady and sought-after fragrances like Prosecco are the same factories whose artisans and scientists produce the products of some of your favorite luxury beauty brands across the world. e.
