Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittany Carver.
Hi Brittany, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
Hi, I’m Brittany, momma, esthetician, entrepreneur, and lash educator. I own a boutique lash and skincare clinic in Franklin; Glam and Glow Co. I offer lash extensions, lash lifts, body contouring services, butt cupping / noninvasive BBL, chemical peels, and an acne bootcamp by Face Reality. I’m originally from Columbus, Georgia. I woke up one day needing a change of scenery so I packed my car, started driving, and ended up here in Nashville in 2015. I began bartending downtown so my esthetics career was put on the back burner.
In 2017, a few months after having my daughter Scarlett, I decided to open my lash and skincare clinic. When I originally opened the studio, it was just to “get by” and be able to set my own schedule around being a new mom. I never dreamed it would take off the way that it did but it’s been an amazing journey!
It’s so crazy how the business has evolved, when I first began my esthetics career my passion was skincare. I had the best esthetician who cleared my acne when dermatologists couldn’t. She was the sole reason I went to Esthetician school.
I wanted to help other people achieve clear, beautiful skin the way my esthetician helped me but then came LASHES! I had no idea what lash extensions were, had not even heard of them but clients kept asking for lashes. I booked a last-minute course with Borboleta and never looked back (there were definitely times I almost threw in the towel).
Fast forward 4 years later I am now known for lash extensions. I believe that my clients come to me for the professional environment, my attention to detail, my desire to constantly evolve and change with the industry, and most importantly maintaining the health and integrity of my client’s natural lashes.
It’s easy to wake up each day and go to work knowing I’m empowering women. I truly believe when a woman feels and looks her best, she shows up fiercely and unapologetically herself and we need as much of that in this world!
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
My biggest obstacle so far has been Covid. I am sure for most businesses this has been the biggest obstacle. I actually closed my business down in August of 2020 and moved back home to Georgia. It felt like the safest option for Scarlett and I due to all of the unknowns and needing a support system. We have been back for about 2 months now and I have been able to build the business back to better than it was!
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Glam and Glow Co.?
Glam and Glow Co. is located inside of A.B.R Aesthetics at 256 Seaboard Lane Suite G 101 in Franklin. I specialize in lash extensions, body contouring, and non-invasive Brazilian Butt Lift (Butt Cupping).
Where we are in life is often partly because of others. Who/what else deserves credit for how your story turned out?
I would have to say my daughter Scarlett. Having her was the kick in the butt that I needed to revisit my esthetics career. If it was not for her, I would probably still be bartending and would not have this amazing career and business.
