Brew Bits: Beyonce’s Haus of Beauty

Add beauty school to the list of side hustle projects the Knowlesesesss are running. Beyonce cut the ribbon for the “Beyonce Cosmetology Center” (no, I’m not making it up) at the Phoenix House rehab center in Brooklyn today.

The program will teach the students all they need to know to pass the state’s cosmetology exam. Beyonce spent some time at the Phoenix House to grit it up and learn how to cuss before playing Etta James in Cadillac Records. She reportedly donated her salary from the film to the Phoenix House after being moved by the women she met there. The following year, she and Mama Tina came up with the beauty school idea (ya know, Tina’s a hair/fashion guru and all).

By the way, the president of Brooklyn (who knew?) has declared Beyonce an official “Brooklynite” by marriage.

Catch pics of the ribbon-cutting ceremony with Mayor Bloomberg here.

Can’t even hate on B’s good deed… but I sure hope there won’t be any hood lace-fronting up in there.

Good for her, even if she is a bit overexposed. I will give her credit for putting her face into as many projects as she can stand, that one will never be broke.
