Tracee Ellis Ross Is Ulta Beauty’s New Diversity and Inclusion Advisor

Tracee Ellis Ross is already an award-winning actor, fashion icon, and CEO of her own hair-care company, Pattern Beauty. But, of course, as someone dedicated to amplifying Black voices and Black culture, she isn’t stopping there.
