My grandmother and namesake Savanna Anderson Horton, started her beauty business, the last of several enterprises, in 1965. She was the first black woman to own a business in the very first shopping center in Chicago--Lake Meadows. Savanna's Chez Pompadour was the largest beauty salon of its time on the city's South Side.
It’s her spirit that inspired me to reflect on my education and professional experience thus far. I've honed the skills and strategies needed to successfully market other's businesses—Why not my own? I felt completely and totally called to found SAVAMAC LLC.
When I first ideated SAVAMAC, I knew that I wanted to found a business that I would be proud to patronize as a consumer--a business to be admired and revered, like Savanna’s Chez Pompadour. Not a salon, but a unisex e-commerce brand that listens, adapts, and evolves to provide products for everyone (and every body).
I'm so happy that you're here to support SAVAMAC as a triple threat: a black-owned, female-owned, and LGBT-owned company that partners exclusively with American brands and manufacturers; one that actively seeks opportunities and partnerships with other small business owners and freelancers.
SAVAMAC ships exclusively in eco-friendly materials that are recycled and/or recyclable, compostable, or biodegradable. The same goes for all our product packaging. The products themselves are comprised of organic ingredients as often as possible, whether they are handmade by me or manufactured in larger-scale U.S. facilities.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you're as proud to shop SAVAMAC as I am to run it. Enjoy!
