Renovating, moving, changing product lines, offering more services, offering more specialized services…these are just some of the things that business owners contemplate to ensure they are meeting the needs of their clients while at the same time driving their own passion.
Entrepreneur, Nail Technician and Eyelash Extension Specialist Meg Willey recently decided to make some changes to her business, Vivid Beauty Boutique.
“I had gone through some life changes the last two years and decided it was time for me to downsize the salon and expand in other areas of my career. The lease for 18th Street, our previous location, was coming to an end in June and every time I drove down the 26th Street location I couldn’t help but think that this would be a perfect spot for us,” said Willey.
In the process of reshaping her business, Willey decided to sell part of it to one of her former hair stylists, Danielle McCoy. She assisted her in opening the Artistry Salon, where some of her staff moved to in December. In addition, Ashley Berscheid recently opened her own business (The Brow Loft in downtown Brandon) so Vivid no longer offers microblading, permanent makeup or makeup services.
The move to 1015-26th Street at the end of June reduced the boutique’s floor space to almost half of their previous location but allowed Willey to create a bright, modern, upbeat space that has a positive flow of energy. With five stylists and two nail/lash technicians the salon still offers complete hair services, manicures, pedicures, eyelash extensions, waxing, and sugaring.
Willey is also in the process of becoming a distributor for Mosaic Nail Systems, which will allow local nail professionals to obtain quality products right here in Brandon.
