Damone Roberts’ name is synonymous with creating iconic beauty and for his renowned talent of sculpting the perfect arch. He is known for painting the features and shaping the brows of some of the world’s prominent beauties and famous faces, including Oprah, Madonna, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, Taraji P. Henson, Channing Tatum, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Nicki Minaj and Robert Downey Jr., to name a few.
Damone Roberts’ distinctive flair has immortalized him in pop culture as an answer in the 2004 edition of the board game Trivial Pursuit, and most recently as a question on the world’s leading game show Jeopardy. His talent expanded from beauty into acting in Ava DuVernay’s first acclaimed feature film I Will Follow, as well as her 2020 series Cherish the Day on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
In 2002, Damone created his flagship brow salon, Damone Roberts Beverly Hills.® Damone’s philosophy is that each person exudes their own individual beauty and that “every face deserves the perfect frame.”® In December of 2019 Damone decided to close his Beverly Hills salon, which he ran successfully in this location for 18 years, and another simultaneously in NYC for 10. He was one of the first black business owners to have a stand-alone Beverly Hills location. He knew, instinctively, that it was time to make a change and open a smaller, intimate location… giving opportunity for an even more customer orientated salon.
This decision not only allowed him to manage the enormous challenges we have all faced in 2020, but to react appropriately. It also has allowed him the focus on his Television work and to enjoy hosting a weekly “Beauty Therapy” IG Live, that has had thousands tuning in to hear him and his guests share how they made their brands thrive.
The Damone Roberts brand has also teamed up with some of the world’s biggest entertainment brands. In 2016, Angry Birds/Sony Studio hosted a key event at Damone’s Beverly Hills salon for beauty journalists, as one of the main characters was called Angry Brow. In 2015, the TV show Empire premiered at the Damone Roberts Salon with the cast. Damone was chosen because they considered Damone Roberts himself an Empire! In 2011, Disney approached Damone to build a duplicate of his Beverly Hills salon on their lot for the premiere of The Princess and The Frog, so that all the little girls going to the premiere could stop at salon to be turned into princesses.
Damone created the collaboration with the internationally best-selling cosmetic company M·A·C. In 2016, working closely with their development team, he created their “Brows Are It” collection, and has been the expert face behind the line.
The demand for Damone’s brand has been growing over the years. The debut of his OPI nail polish in the salon’s signature pistachio wall color, called Damone Roberts 1968, sold out worldwide in just four weeks.
Damone was featured as a regular contributing beauty editor for Oprah.com, with his own column titled “Dear Damone.” His passion for creating the perfect arch has been featured on countless TV shows and has graced the covers of some of the globe’s top magazines. His signature products have been featured on many shows and channels including MSNBC, The View, BET, Access Hollywood, Oprah, Good Morning America, CNN, Wendy Williams & Dr.Oz.
