The owner of BB Makeup Cosmetic Bar in downtown Duluth is celebrating her first year in business in a big way.
Soon customers can get more there than their special line of hypoallergenic cosmetics and a transforming makeup job applied by a professional makeup artist.
Beginning Saturday, owner Shannon Luloff is expanding her services. It will also include facials, spray tanning, foot reflexology, waxing, manicures, pedicures and hot oil hair and deep conditioning scalp treatments,
The kick-off will be celebrated from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the store at 101 E. Superior St. with one-half off deals, free gifts and giveaways, $15 mini facials, other special offers and cocktails.
Luloff said she’s expanding because people are always asking if they also offer facials and waxing services. Moreover, it gives the business more to offer special event customers, including weddings, parties, pageants, fitness competitions and photo shoots.
Moreover, the added services will allow them to use their expansive space more effectively and give the business a better chance at success, she said.
She’s also open to partnerships and collaborations with other small, complimentary business concepts, Others who have used the space so far include a fashion designer with a display on bridal headpieces, a woman who does teeth whitening and parties hosted by women selling jewelry, clothing and other items.
“I hope to see continued interest as these are fun and allow us to meet other female small business owners and to support each other,” she said.
With the expansion, Luloff said she’s hiring cosmetologists/ estheticians. She’s also started a Facebook group, “Twin Ports Beauty Industry” for people in the industry to share opportunities such as jobs, training and philanthropic efforts.
