About Us

Hello Family,

My name is Kai Hodge and I am the CEO and founder of Uzuri Beauty. I wanted to personally welcome you to our online shopping experience. Your time and money are extremely valuable, and we do not take your support for granted. If you are anything like me, I am sure your schedule only warrants essentials, and beauty/hair care supplies are always one of them.

At an early age, and growing up in a single parent home I quickly recognized that black women were a "different kind of amazing." We are capable of making something out of nothing. This inspired me to join the military at the tender age of 17 to make a life for myself and my family. While serving our country and traveling the world, I would often become frustrated with the lack of variety and representation for black women, particularly within the hair care industry. It has been said that black women are considered one of the most underrepresented groups in the world, and I honestly couldn't agree more; especially when it comes to hair care. I birthed the concept of "Uzuri Beauty" with an intrinsic desire to create a modern and upscale black beauty supply experience. I want black women to feel and look their best, because we deserve it. After a long tenure in the Navy, I have decided to go from serving our country, to serving the black woman and her hair care needs. This is a step of faith, but it is one that is so necessary. I am looking forward to going on this journey with you.
