In the series, Lawson can be seen prepping her hair in a vanity, in a black robe with fuzzy sleeves, with products scattered around her. “When it comes to beauty, it’s always been us,” her voice is heard in the background as the clip fades to solo shots of the female changemakers, including Hanifa founder Anifa M, fashion stylist Zarina Akers and Olamide Ayomikun Olowe, Chief. CEO of skin care brand Topicals. There is a single shot of Lawson wearing a black blazer with edgy detailing including delicate lace along her torso and arms. She paired the black suit with standout red lips.

“Remember your lineage,” Lawson can be heard saying as she touches a photo of her mother, Beyoncé’s grandmother Agnès Deron. The video comes to a close with Lawson rising from the vanity, seemingly for an opportunity. The all-women worked with styling duo Devin and Athena for the series.

“We are committed to celebrating the beauty and undeniable influence of Black women on all things beauty and culture and are thrilled to spotlight just a few of the many trailblazers who continue to light a fire in their respective industries. The launch of Shea Moisture’s Blueprint campaign serves as a reminder that black beauty is not only the driving force behind today’s culture, but always will be,” Tedra Michelle Jackson, Chief Marketing Officer, Shea Moisture, said in a statement.

According to the hair care brand, the Blueprint Grants program, which will be officially unveiled in late March, will include the women highlighted in the series. They will help select grant recipients who next light the flames and create new opportunities in beauty.
