Her experimentation eventually led to a successful mail-order and online business in 1993, followed by the opening of her first store in Brooklyn in 1999. During the fall of 2005, she opened a second store on 125th Street in Harlem.  Over time, Carol’s Daughter has exploded into a multi-million dollar beauty empire with celebrity investors including rapper Jay-Z and actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, selling products at its stores, on its website – as well as TargetWalgreens, Ulta Salon, Sally Beauty stores and the Home Shopping Network.  In 2014, the brand was acquired by Loreal USA.
