For 2024 Scream Pretty is supporting women in 2 ways,

Firstly, we're donating a piece of jewellery to Smart Works Reading for every order using the code 'IWD24' during International Women’s Day. Smart Works Reading is a charity that supports women, with mentoring and make-overs to help them back into work. It’s a fantastic charity we have an on-going relationship with.

Secondly to celebrate 2024 International Women’s Day, our founder Lucy Lee has joined the fantastic community ByWomenBuilt, (BWB) which supports and celebrates female founded business in the UK and the US (and soon the World?)

 In BWB words...

"Behind every great brand is a great founder.

Great founders are trail blazers — people who create something new; people driven by more than just a desire to get rich; people who leave the world better off than they found it. A few British names spring to mind: Richard Branson, James Dyson, Peter Jones.

But how many great founders can you name are women? Polls provide a staggering answer. 81% of 11-18-year olds are unable to name one single female entrepreneur. We have a plan to change that. We will showcase amazing brands built by women not only to profile great female founders but also to harness the power of consumer spending, in turn creating a fairer, stronger society.

Through By Women Built and from her own research Lucy Lee, Founder of Lily Charmed, wants to share these awesome female founded Brands with you. Please take a moment to dip into the socials, browse their websites and share those you love with friends and family. Word of mouth is your most powerful tool, to support female founded brands on this International Women’s Day!

Here are some of Lucy’s favourite female founded brands, that have similar values to Scream Pretty – please support and share them!


Female Founded Brands that Recycle with LOVE

Lucy says – Recycling material is one of Scream Pretty core values, recycle and reuse – here are my favourite female founded brands that have this as their USP

Neon Leo

 Neon Leo

Making slow fashion stylish. Empowering women with rental and preloved fashion. Neon Leo is a local rental and preloved fashion store located at 7 Market Row, Saffron Walden. Their mission is to help women elevate their style through sustainable fashion choices. When you enter their store, you'll be greeted with a beautiful selection of trendy clothing (from daily basics to exceptional event wear) sequins, glitter balls, amazing art and much more.

Customers can rent clothing (from Rixo, Queens Of Archive, Kitri, Sleeper, etc.) for a one-off event or sign up for an ongoing monthly membership. Unlike other rental platforms, Neon Leo is starting as an Essex and Cambridgeshire communal wardrobe where customers can try on items at their Saffron Walden store before renting them. Aside from renting clothes, Mandy and Abi also provide an on-trend curated edit of preloved clothing, shoes, and accessories in inclusive sizes (4-22) available for purchase. They also offer one-to-one styling advice and support in a welcoming and positive environment. Visiting the store is something any fashion lover will want to experience.

 Female Founded Brands that support and inspire confidence & Style



Having spent years of wasted time and effort struggling to find hairdressers and beauty ‘experts’ able to handle her curly Afro hair and brown skin, FroHub founder Rahel Tesfai realised that her demographic was not being catered for on the High Street nor online. As I’m sure many of you can testify to, this struggle was both real, painful, and all-consuming! So in 2019 Rahel started FroHub as an online Community which she initially hoped would result in the better transfer of information. As more effort, thought, and love was poured into what was initially her side hustle, the idea of an online platform, or hub, for all things black hair and beauty started to crystallise. And this is where FroHub has got to in 2024; the creation of this beautiful, easy-to-use, online destination which has become the largest Afro hair and beauty booking platform in the UK.
