Jessica and Kelsey are a powerhouse sister team when it comes to all things beauty. They revamped a historic West End building (100 Green Avenue) into a sleek, modern hair care and beauty salon that feels refreshingly minimal and relaxing. They opened the doors to The Beautiful Co. in May and are committed to giving Greenville the ultimate luxury experience and the most personalized service along with high end, imported organic products that you usually find in New York and Los Angeles (think Original & Mineral and Oway). They also offer bridal services and have the most ideal space for a group of bridesmaids to get ready on a wedding day. Keep this place in mind, brides!
These girls were nice enough to take time out of their busy schedules to tell us about their biz and vision for serving Greenville. I hope y'all enjoy hearing from them as much as I did in the following interview.
