Tracee Ellis Ross Opens Up About the Inspiration Behind Her New Haircare Line Pattern Beauty

Tracee Ellis Ross is on the cover of Glamour UK‘s October 2019 digital issue, out now.

Here’s what the 46-year-old Black-ish actress had to say…

On her new venture, Pattern Beauty, a haircare line, and how it is very much inspired by her own personal relationship with beauty: “I went through those teenage years when everybody is searching to figure out who they are and all of a sudden become so aware of how they look, how they are seen, what’s cool, what’s in…sadly, there were not a ton of images, outside of my family, of people who looked like me.”

On her realization that women of color have subliminally been told that their hair type was undesirable: “Oh, there was no ‘eureka’ moment. When I was going through all of that I didn’t have an understanding of the larger cultural context; I didn’t understand that the culture of beauty and the industry of beauty was actually specifically leaving me out and not celebrating me.”

On how her brand has been 10 years in the making and the journey it’s taken her on: “That has been fraught with many disappointments, me running up against many of the things that were exactly what made me feel bad about myself. People saying to me: ‘You don’t have the credibility to do this, you need to partner with a professional,’ and me attempting to explain that I, like many women of color and people with curly hair, have become our best experts because the industry has not supported us.”

Tracee Ellis Ross Shares the Moment She Felt Like Giving Up in Hollywood

Tracee Ellis Ross looks stunning on the cover of Essence‘s October hair issue, on newsstands later this month.

Here’s what the 46-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On being relatable to fans: “The truth is, I’m glad they can identify with me, because I identify with them. I feel like we are a community of sisters out here. That kind of makes me cry a little bit, because we are a community of sisters told by mainstream society that we are not the thing, and I know I’ve had to make my own way through that messaging. I look out and see other sisters and think, I see you. Do you see me? Because I see you.”

On feeling like giving up in Hollywood: “There were moments of that. I really thought when Girlfriends finished that the pearly gates of Hollywood were going to open, and they were going to be like, ‘What movie would you like, ma’am? Please, choose whatever.’ That did not happen. It forced my soul to continue to search for what it longed for, dreamed of, wanted to be.”

On when she knew Black was beautiful: “It took me way longer than I wish it had. I’d catch glimpses of people who saw beauty in ways I had missed because of the blinders society gave me. Then one day I was watching a Nina Simone documentary and I thought: Wait. It should be her name next to the word ‘beauty.’ Why was I sold the wrong vision? My heart knows that’s beauty.”

Tracee Ellis Ross Gets Sibling Support at Pattern Beauty Launch Party!

Nothing but love in the Ross family!

Tracee Ellis Ross got nothing but support at the launch of her brand Pattern Beauty line held on (September 8) at a private location in Los Angeles.

The Golden Globe-winning actress got support from her siblings Evan Ross and his wife Ashlee Simpson, brother Ross Naess and his wife Kimberly Ryan, as well as pregnant sister Chudney Ross and her husband Joshua Faulkner at the event. Guests enjoyed Casamigos Tequila and Mezcal.

Also in attendance to show their support were Lena Waithe, A Black Lady Sketch Show star Robin Thede, Pose‘s MJ Rodriguez and Tracee’s Mixed-ish stars Arica Himmel, Mykal-Michelle Harris and Ethan Childress.

Patten was 10 years in the making,” Tracee Ellis Ross told Marie Claire about the hairline. “I wrote my first brand pitch in 2008 when Girlfriends finished. It’s taken me that long because the gatekeepers and decision-makers of the beauty world did not understand the magnitude, importance, beauty, breath, and consumer dollars of the curl community. They wondered why anyone would want products from me. The pitch and hair products I wanted to create then are the same now. The difference is now I apparently have credibility. This is made from the heart of a woman who is honored to be a part of this community. This is 20 years of dreaming, digging in my hair, and thinking about what I was longing for.”

Earlier in the week, Tracee Ellis Ross stopped by The Daily Show with Trevor Noah to promote her Pattern Beauty launch.
