Created by the founders of IV KULTURE in 2020, The 2% Black Nail Tech Initiative is focused on amplifying black nail technicians by creating a platform that supports, collaborates and showcases their artistry. Black nail technicians make up only 2% of the nail care industry - one of the largest gaps in the beauty cosmetics.
To build an inclusive nail community, there must be a space and place for the voices of the disenfranchised.
How to Support
A portion of the sales from IV KULTURE products help support this initiative. This includes creating a black nail artist directory designed to elevate a platform for techs to grow their clientele, a top obstacle once completing cosmetology school.
To create a more inclusive and diverse environment for black nail artistry and products. Through this effort, we can help close this gap and achieve a more connected nail community.
