Chrystal L. Hair & Makeup

Chrystal Graves, the owner of the salon, believes that stylists should be able to work with all types of hair. 

Whether you want to try a new restaurant for dinner, continue to support your favorite Black-owned hair salon or purchase a new face mask for a good cause, shopping at local businesses owned by Black Columbians is just one of many ways to support and be an ally to Columbia's Black community. As we continue to work toward a more equal society, we can stand with the movement by supporting Columbia's many Black-owned businesses.

James Whitt, the director of the City's supplier diversity program, says the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with a poor economic climate, has created challenges for Columbia's minority- and woman-owned businesses.
