Hair Care, Life & Times, Style

Shop Small & Local This Holiday

Earlier in November you might have heard me quickly mention my new writing gig with the elite hair community, Our MANE Society, created by stylist to the stars and Aveda Artistic Director Tippi Shorter (it’s super exciting I know!). Just a few weeks ago I curated a gift guide with Tippi for all types of hair for the MANE Society that you can browse here…you know in case you need some fresh gift ideas:) Between the gift guide my love of shopping local, on top of small business Saturday that passed a while back, I thought why not share a few beauty and fashion brands that you may like to support. Besides, small businesses are what keeps the world and economy churning. Let’s play our part as supporters and see if they have anything you need!

Hair & Beauty

Get your fresh + made to order avocado hair mask by YouTuber and Naturall Club founder Meem of Picture Me Natural! Set up a subscription plan for someone special this year so they can achieve their healthy #hairGOAL going into the new year.


Need to snag a gift that’s vegan friendly or is your secret Santa someone who is sensitive to harsh ingredients found in others cosmetics? Gr33n Glamour has you covered as they are dedicated to providing non-toxic, organic, vegan and cruelty free beauty essentials.


Original Moxie is another fave product of mine (can’t ya tell from my results LOL!) that I’ve grown to love and had the opportunity of showing other curlies how to use the products for the best results. The best part about Original Moxie is that there is literally a product for every hair texture no matter how fine, course, straight or texture. Sample sizes are an option too for the perfect gift wrapped starter kit for anyone who wants healthy hair.


Wilde Gatherings has a variety of holistic skin care products that are made with raw organic ingredients, right here in Philly, and can be used on any skin type. You can find Wilde Gatherings sold at The Parlour Hair & Skin in Fishtown or at your nearest Anthropologie. Give the gift of healthy, radiant, and glowing skin!


Clothing & Accessories

Whether your shopping online or at the boutique in Old City, Fason De Viv has plenty of local finds in one spot from clothing designers, handmade leather goods, and body care to pamper your skin with.

Who would have knew you could find ethically sourced metals, customized jewelry options, and swanky designs all in Philly’s Queen Village! Anyone would be in for a treat with a gift from Bario Neal.

Which gifts would you be excited to have this year?
