CRWN Magazine 2nd issue celebrates self-love with The Love Issue featuring cover entrepreneurs Ivory + Ash.

CRWN, a magazine that celebrates the natural hair of the African Diaspora and the dynamic women who wear it, has announced a new cover with lifestyle brand innovators Deun Ivory and Lauren Ash. The CRWN Magazine 2nd issue celebrates self-love and is dubbed The Love Issue.


“In our first issue, we introduced CRWN and provided context for the cultural phenomenon that is happening around Black women and our hair,” says Editor-In-Chief  Lindsey Day. “In the second, we delve deeper into one of CRWN’s brand pillars — Self-Love — from the perspective of two creative, entrepreneurial powerhouses. Deun and Lauren are the embodiment of sisterhood at work, and have built a mighty community of Black women who are choosing to prioritize health, wellness and self care. Through Ivory + Ash, they’re inspiring, educating and integrating positive affirmations into our everyday lives, and it’s our duty as a community to get behind that.”

The forthcoming issue’s cover stars, Deun Ivory and Lauren Ash, connected through their work on wellness site Black Girl In Om. The duo now have lifestyle brand Lifestyle with Ivory + Ash, a new collection of illustrations and affirmations. The new brand envisions becoming “the Black Hallmark.”

The Love Issue will be released this winter and can be pre-ordered on CRWN Magazine’s website.
