B.O.E AWARDS SILVER SPONSOR
ABOUT UWAYE, THE FOUNDER
Uwaye was born and raised in Nigeria before she moved to the UK in 2011. She is a Chartered Accountant at a ‘Big 4’ firm who has always had a passion for Entrepreneurship. While studying at the University of Reading, Uwaye noticed the lack of ease when it came to shopping online for Afro-Caribbean hair and skin care needs. She was constantly met with a lack of choice, exorbitant prices and poorly navigable websites.
Having grown up helping her mother with a highly successful hair shop back in Nigeria, Uwaye had gained an understanding of this type of business. She leveraged this knowledge to birth Crowned Mane Hair & Beauty in 2020, a one stop online shop for Afro-Caribbean hair and skin care products with reasonable prices and a seamless shopping experience.
