It’s been said that “age ain’t nothing but a number” and for model-actress-entrepreneur Beverly Johnson, that could not be truer!
The 50-something year old former supermodel recently launched a new beauty collection for women of color with products focusing on hair care as well as bath and body items.
Johnson recently talked to Racked.com about her new venture that is available now in Target stores.
“Well, I’ve been doing a line of wigs for a while but my daughter wears her hair natural and that’s the thing, even if you wear a wig or a weave you want to take care of your hair underneath. People don’t know that but I wasn’t sure about getting involved in business. I don’t have an MBA — my daughter [Anansa] has an MBA, so I found a business partner. I said, ‘eff it, I’m going for it.’”
Never one to rest on her laurels, Johnson is already in the works to produce lifestyle products that will compliment her new collection and says that it’s never too late to dream.
“We also have bath and body and the first skincare products will be coming out. We plan to do an entire lifestyle brand. I love linens, I love nice sheets, I collect beautiful things and I want to make them all myself, from the beginning. It’s everything I always wanted to do…. I used to think I wasn’t smart enough to start a brand, I was too old, I didn’t know enough about business; but it’s never too late to start.”
