Did you know that women and minority women owned businesses receive a minuscule amount of funding each year? This makes it harder for small businesses such as Marie Hunter Beauty and other independent owned businesses to scale up.
With the holidays officially here, we’ve gathered up some of our favorite women owned and operated businesses for you to shop this holiday season. When women support one another we ALL win! Some have even provided us with a promo code to offer you! Happy shopping and let us know in the comments who your favorite women owned businesses are :).
1. Loza Tam
Sometimes doing your hair just seems like a hassle and we’ve all seen one or two people out and about running errands in their hair bonnets. Loza Tam has a stylish collection of women’s headbands, turbans & hair accessories. Protecting your hair while still looking chic is sometimes hard to accomplish, all of their hair accessories are lined in satin to protect the hair against frizz, breakage and moisture loss. Loza Tam’s African Head Wraps come in an array of colors with mustard being a top seller. Top publications such as Allure and Refinery29 are taking notice and you should too! I don’t know about you, but I’ll definitely be stocking up on few a colors this season, the green satin turban has my name written all over it!
