Today we’d like to introduce you to Kristl Vulovic.
Kristl, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I was originally licensed in 2000 as a Cosmetologist and specialized in skincare and makeup in Oregon. At 21 years old, I had already worked for 2 years in this field and decided to move to California to attend GIA (the Gemological Institute of America) and broaden my education.
With my gemologist degree, I went on to work at Tiffany & Co. for about 6 years before finding my way back to beauty. At that time I was hired by the Anastasia Beverly Hills salon in La Jolla as an esthetician and brow artist. Shortly after, it closed and I went on to open Brow Lounge in 2008 with 3 other partners. As of 2017 (and 10 years of business), I am the sole owner of Brow Lounge.
Has it been a smooth road?
Brow Lounge has survived a ‘recession’ as well as being surrounded by numerous beauty storefronts coming and going. Trends change and so do market trends… especially in the beauty industry which keeps us on our toes.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Brow Lounge story. Tell us more about the business.
Brow Lounge is a specialty boutique. We specialize in brow artistry, microblading, skin treatment, spray tans, body waxing, acupuncture, lash lifts and lash extensions.
I am most proud of my team of beauty professionals because they are just that. They are professional and experts in their fields and they constantly strive to connect with clients on a personal level. This allows us to build relationships that endure trends and an ever-changing industry. We are not a typical ‘waxing salon.’ We care deeply for our community and we especially care about perfect brows.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Permanent cosmetics have been on the rise. Clients are constantly searching for ways to save time in their beauty routines and efficient, time-saving treatments are a must.
