Today we’d like to introduce you to Noelani Brewster.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Noelani. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Before my business was even thought of, I worked at Bebe’s corporate office. While working, I received my Esthetician license and did lashes In my spare time. While pregnant with my second son, bebe decided to go out of business leaving me with no job. After my son was born, my husband and I decided it would be best for me to stay home with the children. During this time, I still did lashes and Esthetician work from out of my home, but now that our babies are getting older and I started to get more clients, we decided it would be best to find a place for me to bring my clients outside of our house. After searching for years, I finally found the perfect place. It needed work and decorating. About three months after signing the lease, I finally got everything together and had a grand opening on August 11th. Noelani cosmetics is open and taking appointments. We offer eyelash extensions services and eyebrow Microblading
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The whole process was a struggle but I never gave up! Every time I got closer to having a grand opening, a new issue would arise. I had a passion for eyelashes and giving up was not an option. My advice for anyone who is looking to own their own business, you have to hustle and give 100%. You have to work late hours, post to social media a thousand times, pass out flyers, do anything you can think of to promote and get your name out there to get clients. Owning a business isn’t going to happen overnight, you have to get permits, supplies, and spend money.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Noelani Cosmetics – what should we know?
I am a licensed Esthetician and certified lash artist. I can perform any Esthetician work such as facials and wax services, but I’m known for eyelash extensions services. Eyelash extensions are achieved by isolating and bonding each of your natural lashes one at a time. I do not apply glue or lashes to the skin. I’m most proud that I give my clients 100% each time. I focus on quality and not how fast I can finish. I do work at a great pace but I always make sure each client always leaves happy and loves their lashes.
What’s the most important piece of advice you could give to a young woman just starting her career?
Don’t give up! When I started my work, it didn’t look great. But I keep practicing and was determined to be great.
