Karen Tappin (Pink Dress, Dope Afro) is an entrepreneur and educator. She is one of the billion-dollar beauty industry’s rising stars. In just seven short years, Karen, the founder and proprietor of Karen’s Body Beautiful, has transformed her organic body care line from a modest home-based business to a blossoming enterprise with robust internet sales, a luxurious store and a chic spa. Karen developed recipes for a full spa line made from all natural ingredients, including lotions, soaps, scrubs, oils, candles and bath salts. Karen’s products were immediately a hit-so successful in fact that Karen’s Body Beautiful was officially launched in November 2003. Karen’s first store in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn opened three months later. Karen then created an all-natural hair care collection that quickly developed a cult following. The business grew at a rapid clip and Karen installed a kitchen in the store to make her products, which streamlined the production process, increased capacity and drew interested bystanders from the street, who often became customers. And after years of managing her successful spa Karen has shut it’s doors to focus on a bigger/ national picture. Karen’s Body Beautiful products are now available at select Target Stores!
We couldn’t be happier for you and wish you nothing but success Karen! Thank you for always supporting those from Around The Way!
