A little over a week ago, we spoke up and showed our support for the Black Lives Matter movement and the Black community, recognizing change needs to happen now. There are many ways to show support for the Black community including showing love to Black-owned business.
With some salons starting to re-open across the country, we think it’s important, now more than ever, to amplify Black artists in the industry. In today’s blog post, we’re highlighting a few Black-owned salons in our DevaCurl family and how you can support them.

How to Show Support
Here are a few ways you can support Black-owned salons:
- Give them a shout-out on your social media pages
- If you’ve visited before, leave them a positive review
- Share recommendations with your friends
- Buy products from the salon instead of online or at a retailer
- And of course, book an appointment with them
