Rebecca Opong is the founder and owner of African Image Beauty Supply Salon (AIBSS) located in the Los Angeles, California area. She opened her shop back in 1987, and is one of the few Black-owned beauty supply stores in the area. This year, she is celebrating her 30th year in business! Rebecca, a native of Accra, Ghana (West Africa), first sold African clothing and fabrics at her store. When she saw that there was a demand for hair products for Black women, she got her license in cosmetology and began braiding hair. She also started selling hair and skin care products like 100% Black soap, African shea butter, weaves, and other items that cater to Black women. She even sold African movies!
