Drs. Joe and Eunice Dudley – Dudley Beauty Corp., LLC
Drs. Joe and Eunice Dudley probably didn’t have any idea that their small family owned operation would become one of the longest standing black-owned hair care companies when they were mixing products in their kitchen 43 years ago. Story has it that while the husband and wife team were creating formulas, their two oldest children would help package the products at night. The rest, as they say, is history. Their oldest daughter, Ursula Dudley Oglesby, currently runs the North Carolina based company as President. Besides boasting a large array of products from relaxers to styling pomades, the company also has a beauty school, which operates in four locations.
