About us

Welcome To Evay Cosmetics... Go The Evay Way!

Back in 1974, Vivian Akuoko, a Hartford, CT resident had a dream to create the best natural skin care products for women of color. With a few thousand dollars, two children, and a dream, Vivian worked her way through hair dressing school. Graduating in 1975, Vivian acquired an internship at the Enchanting Beauty Bar on Albany Avenue in Hartford, CT. Over the next 7 years, she continued to develop her love for women's beauty. Vivian acquired a 400 square foot space on Albany Avenue and started selling her own makeup and skin care line. In addition, her creativity was instrumental in starting the bonding weave industry, which is still popular today.

Over the next several years, Vivian found a niche working with cancer patients by providing them with specialty and custom made wigs. To date, Vivian has worked with thousands of cancer patients as well as national celebrities to enhance their beauty and restore self-confidence.

Today, Vivian and her team continue to stay dedicated to Hartford, Connecticut where they produce quality natural skin and hair care products on a global level, selling in almost every country. Evay Cosmetics has been awarded the Madam CJ Walker Award by the Zoway Foundation.
