Today we’d like to introduce you to Alexis Boatfield.
Hi Alexis, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
It all started in a closet the size of a pantry in my college house that I shared with 3 other girls in 2018. I saw a gap in the market where I was going to school and figured if I could at least convince my roommates and a few girls from my sorority to get lashes, I could make my money back from the training program I did. Little did I know, that small dream would turn into what is my passion now. Shortly after college, I finished Esthetician school. Then, I moved to Cleveland, OH where I opened up my first studio in Westlake, and Beauty by Boat was born.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Through a Pandemic, I had no idea once salons were able to open back up if I was even going to have a business anymore. Quickly, I learned what a loyal clientele I had built and it was full speed ahead.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a licensed Esthetician and Eyelash Extension Artist. I focus solely on the art of eyelash extensions and customer service. I am most proud of opening my first studio where I operate business, in Westlake with my best friend that does eyebrows, Alexa Faye Beauty. I love what I do because I have built long-lasting friendships and relationships with all of my clients. I am one of the first to know when major events take place in their lives. I wake up every morning, so thankful that I can make a small difference in each of my client’s life.
Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
I love our city for so many reasons. I love the closeness and homeiness Cleveland offers to all. I specifically enjoy the Westside for all of the amazing restaurants and how dog-friendly everything is.
