Today we’d like to introduce you to Aeriel Booker.
Hi Aeriel, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I started A|Bar shortly after ending my full-time career in the postal service. I always knew I wanted to pursue my passion in makeup artistry, then A|Bar was born. Make up was where I could be creative, feel free. Not knowing much about skin, I turned my side hustle into a business. A|Bar is an aesthetic place. Specializing in all things everybrows, lashes and skincare.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
A|Bar has not always been a smooth road. In the beginning, I struggled with maintaining consistent clientele. Starting off with no guide and extreme overhead, I barely made ends meet my first year in business.
Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
A.estheticsBarllc, better known as, A|Bar is a beauty bar located in Baltimore, MD. We specialize in all things eyebrows, eyelash extensions, waxing & skincare. We are best known for our number one service brow wax & tint. Our top priority is keeping our clients at top-tier status. Affordable luxury services for our guest sets us apart. We recently launched our own brow line that we are most proud of. A convenient full kit to seamlessly create eyebrows on the go. A|Bar also offers training courses for likewise professionals.
Can you talk to us about how you think about risk?
Starting a business is taking a risk. Working everyday a 9-5, guaranteed pay to hustling for ends to meet. Sounds tough… but the reward is I do what I love everyday. Risk comes with a reward.
