Bombshell Hair Studio Celebrates Four Years
Bombshell Hair Studio – owned and operated by Brooke LeMasters – celebrated four years of service to the community on Saturday, Feb. 2. The celebration began with a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the Wetzel County Chamber of Commerce at 2 p.m., and light refreshments were made available. Afterwards, “Pop the Balloon” was played, and chances to win discounts, free Hot Hand Treatments, and a free makeover done by LeMasters were offered.
Bombshell Hair Studio also took the time to remind the community of its annual food drive.
LeMasters reported that each year a food drive is opened at the salon in order to celebrate another year of business.
She explained her business anniversary is not about her, rather it’s about thanking the community and her clients for their support. LeMasters believes the food drive is a good way to show her appreciation, and a nice way to give back to the community.
She also expressed she would not be in business if it weren’t for her clients and the community supporting her.
“I feel so blessed that they choose to spend their time with me, and (that they) support me with their business.” LeMasters explained.
The food drive started on Saturday and will last throughout the month of February. Those who bring a donation to Bombshell will be entered into a drawing to receive a gift bag from LeMasters.
While the food drive has a goal of thanking the community for their support, the ribbon cutting’s purpose is to thank Bombshell for its service to the community. The Wetzel County Chamber of Commerce has been supporting LeMasters and her business since 2017, and wanted to show appreciation for LeMasters having the courage to open her own place four years ago.
LeMasters reported she was very thankful for the chamber as well. She expressed how impressed she is with how much the chamber cares, and by its involvement in the life of her business.
LeMasters also announced that Bombshell will be receiving some new features in 2019. While already a full service hair salon with a focus on color treatment, owner and stylist LeMasters reported she has recently become certified to do hair extensions and will soon be a specialist and educator for a brand of balayage.
LeMasters says that she was certified by a tape-in hair extension line called Easihair Pro, and is building up a clientele on that front.
She also reported she was chosen to go to Atlanta in the coming month to work hands-on with celebrity stylist Candy Shaw on balayage. Shaw was trained in Paris on this technique, and is known to have been the spearhead to revolutionize balayage in America. LeMasters says she is very excited for this opportunity, and will bring back everything she learns to her clients.
In regards to these new additions, LeMasters said, “They’re popular and they’re new, and not readily available in this area.” For that reason, she is excited to bring this option to the community.
She said she will still be working with her clients through all of this, but will simply add education to her schedule. Bombshell will still offer its previous hair services and will continue to carry and sell makeup.
While the decision that thrust LeMasters to open Bombshell was somewhat centered around a desire to run things in a manner she decided, it was mainly a wish to offer the community a different type of experience that wasn’t available at the time that had her taking the first steps.
Within four months LeMasters had Bombshell open and running, with a line of clients already waiting. She reported that business was far better in the beginning than she could have imagined, and that in the past four years it has only improved. LeMasters reported that this trend reflects the support of the community, and said she is immensely thankful for it.
While LeMasters believes that the salon’s anniversary should not focus on her, the Wetzel County Chamber of Commerce aimed to show its appreciation for her hard work. This celebration was a success, and the community wishes Bombshell the best in the coming year.
