Today we’d like to introduce you to Lisa Liken.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Lisa. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I was introduced to lash artistry by a good friend. She thought I may have a natural talent for it and urged me to try practicing to find out if I liked it. I quickly realized that I enjoyed it and made the decision to go to school to get licensed for aesthetics all-the-while perfecting my craft. Shortly after graduating and earning my license, I opened Studio Jolie in downtown!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
For the most part, I would say it has been a pretty smooth road. The hardest part of starting/opening your own business in this field is building your own clientele.
Studio Jolie – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
At Studio Jolie the main service offered is eyelash extensions. This is where one eyelash extension is individually placed on each natural lash. Something that sets me apart in my field is that I take my time for each and every client. Full sets will take anywhere between 2-3 hours and fills anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours depending on the lash style the client chooses. The reason for this is to ensure that I am providing a quality service to my clients.
Although lashes are the main service at Studio Jolie, we also offer facials and waxing.
Just a little fun fact: People always think my name is Jolie, but Jolie is my daughter’s name, which is a perfect fit for my business, because Jolie translates to “pretty” in French.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
I would have to say the proudest moment of my career so far is opening Studio Jolie. I put so much hard work into it and finally seeing my vision come to fruition is an amazing feeling.
