Mini Maatje: Black-owned hair salons in Amsterdam

Hold your head up high!

When it comes to wellness and beauty, our hair is our crowning glory.  

And when it comes to curls and coils, you want to know that you’re in capable hands. 

Stepping out with a fresh cut is a priceless feeling – as is supporting local, BIPOC-owned beauty and wellness salons that help us look and feel our best.

That’s why Mini Maatje’s Editor, Amsterdam-based travel writer Lily Heaton, shares just a handful of Black-owned salons in Amsterdam where you can get a fresh fade while supporting local businesses.
