April Showers, founder, Afro Unicorn, has announced a new global licensing partner, Magical Beauty, which aims to uplift and impact women and children of color.  

Magical Beauty is creating a line of unique hair care and styling products for kids ages 2 to 12, “Afro Unicorn Magical Tresses,” to debut in the U.S. at Walmart and CVS in the fall and roll out internationally in early 2024, as well as via e-commerce. The collection is aimed at specific curl patterns with a product line created for all textures and tresses.  

“I am extremely proud of what Afro Unicorn has achieved in less than four years, and I am incredibly grateful for the tremendous amount of support we have received from our licensing and retailer partners, the media, and a whole host of influencers that have shared our story,” says Showers. “We are thrilled to add Magical Beauty, our first Black-owned global licensing partner, as our newest licensee to offer our fans a whimsical experience in hair care.” 

 Additionally, L.A.-based studio Pure Imagination has teamed up with Afro Unicorn to develop and produce a range of content for broadcast, digital, theatrical and gaming, starting with an animated show for kids centered around three Afro Unicorns – Unique, Divine, and Magical – all with distinct personalities.
