Small Business Spotlight: SNAPAHOLICS

1. What is your name and the name of your Business?
Kathleen Johnson and the name of my business is "Snapaholics"

2. Where is your business located?
Online business based out of Salt Lake City Utah

3. Business' Website:

4. Are you the owner? 
Yes, I am the new owner.  I purchased it from the previous owner a few months ago.

5.  Briefly tell us about your business:  
Snapaholics is an online store selling hair accessories mostly geared for kids but we have things for adults too.  We provide hair beads, beading tools, hair snaps, hair barrettes, and ballies for kids at great prices.  We specialize in hard-to-find bling!  We also have styling tools, satin pillow cases, and sleep caps.  We have a page featuring hair styling videos as well.  

6.  How did you come to be in this line of work?  
When I adopted my oldest daughter she was almost 4 and had tons of hair.  I had to quickly learn everything I could about taking care of and styling African American hair.  What a fun adventure that has been.  She is almost 10 now and I have learned so much along the way.  We also now have a 3 year old, so I have 2 gorgeous girls whose hair I enjoy styling and caring for.  

In my area, it is hard to find hair accessories and hair products geared towards african american hair so it has always been a struggle to get the right things for them.  So, when Snapaholics became available to purchase it seemed like the perfect fit for me.  I can continue to stay home with my cute girls, have my own business, and offer a product that I know is needed in areas like mine.

7. How long have you been doing this?  
I purchased Snapaholics just a few short months ago.  However, Snapaholics was run by the previous owner for several years.

8. Who would benefit from your product?  
Anyone can benefit from our products.  We have items that are geared towards younger girls but we also have items that older girls and tweens would like.  We also have items adults can use.  We are adding items weekly so we are trying to get a little of something for everyone.  Soon, we will have a bigger variety of sleep caps and we will have some designs for boys as well.

Fros on the Fourth!! Are you Ready?

As some of you may already know, Fros on the Fourth (a/k/a National Afro Day) is just around the corner!! 

 Fros on the Fourth was founded by BlkOnyx488 on Long Hair Care Forum in 2010, to encourage naturals to rock out "fro" styles and/or paraphernalia to celebrate the freedom and beauty of natural hair on Independence Day!

Last year Ms. Bree wore her hair out but not an "fro" style:

This is the first year we are participating in "Fros on the Fourth" and she will be rocking her "fro"!   Needless to say her daddy is very excited since "Wash and Go" is his favorite style. 


I would like to invite all of you to participate and let your little ones rock their "fro" this Fourth of July and we have something very special for those who want to show their support and share their "afrotanstic photos"!

Our friend at BABY BIG HAIR is a big lover of babies with big hair! We are so excited to be partnering with her and doing a Twitter Contest! 

Come on and let your Baby Big Hair celebrate this Independence Day a/k/a National Afro Day by proudly displaying his/her BIG HAIR!  Don't forget to take a photo and have it ready to be submitted for our amazing contest.   

I will post all the details, the prize and the GRAND PRIZE on or about July 4th, 2013.  So make sure you follow us on twitter @CurlzNSwirls and @Babybighair.
