Leah has Real Beauty
Real Beauty is a company located at Crane Park North, St. Philip that produces its own line of nail, lash and hair products and offers makeup and pedicure services. The company which is owned and operated by Leah Husbands also has an online store that retails skincare products and beauty tools.
Husbands who is a former student of Louis Lynch Secondary also caters to entrepreneurs, providing motivational and coaching services.
The businesswoman said she decided to be an entrepreneur because it was always a life goal. The business has been operating for nine-years.
“I became an entrepreneur because it was my goal, as a teenager I would develop ideas, write them in a journal which is a practice I continued. I mixed my own hair oils and was into beauty. I decided while I was pursuing my degree at Cave Hill to do the Freelance Makeup Artistry course in New York which thoroughly introduced me to makeup and by doing the course it gave me the opportunity to work backstage at New York Fashion Week. This experience boosted my confidence to formally open my business as a Makeup Artist and to create my own line of Beauty products,” she said.
Husbands who has completed The Private Secretary’s Diploma at the Barbados Community College and has a Social Sciences Degree from UWI Cave Hill in addition to the Makeup Artistry Certificate said that the New York experience provided the opportunity to work in New York Fashion Industry.
“One of the highlights of my business was the opportunity to work for Black Entertainment Television on one of their TV shows “ How to Rock Kicks” where I did make up for a few male models who are now internationally renowned in the fashion industry, “ she said.
Husbands said customer service is important to Real Beauty which is why she decided to personally build her website ensuring that it is customer friendly.
“Customers and customer service is paramount to Real Beauty hence my website makes it easy for customers to find, view, buy and book online. Real Beauty prides itself on listening, collaborating, and supporting fellow beauty professionals and entrepreneurs. My market research identified a need for quality acrylic brushes at a reasonable price for nail technicians. The result led to an expansion of Real Beauty products to meet that need. I would like to thank Jehovah, my family, loved ones and customers for their continued support.
Reflecting on her journey over the past nine years as a business owner, she said that one of the things that entrepreneurship has taught her is resilience and determination in the face of challenges.
