5 Local Black Businesses to Support this Holiday Season

5 Local Black Businesses to Support this Holiday Season


Silk Curlz is a family owned business  in Edmonton, AB, Canada. The owner and operator, Tramaine, is a working mother of two. She aspires to educate and empower women of all hair types with the knowledge to protect their locks.

The packaging their products are delivered in is a vibrant purple. Super cute and filled with goodness. I had the pleasure of ordering a satin sleep kit from her earlier this year. The kit includes, a satin headband and satin eyeshade, all enclosed in a cute reusable satin bag.

The Sweeties is another family run business which we adore. They offer a variety of accessories from headbands, to bows and more.

 We’ve had the pleasure of seeing this mother and daughter trio during this

summer’s markets. My daughters love their colourful and big hair bows. Their hair bows are stylish and come in many varieties.

Amped Lashes

Lash extensions have become all the craze and we’re here for it! Single mom, Jessica, has taken the time to become a skilled lash extensionist. Pre-pandemic, she started her own business which became successful very quickly. She opened up shop in St. Albert but has since returned to the Edmonton area.
