Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica Weathers.
Hi Jessica, 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’m the owner of Bomb Brows, a permanent cosmetics (permanent makeup) business located in St Peters, MO.
I am a certified permanent cosmetic professional, and a licensed tattoo artist. I have more than 500 hours’ worth of training in: microblading, lip blush tattoo, eyeliner, ombre brows, saline removal, and color theory.
My mission is to help women feel confident in their skin.
To obtain my tattoo license and better my craft, I attended a nine-month PMU Apprenticeship locally in St Louis. I completed 50 services and more than 300 hours of training and hands-on application of my skills. I’m continuously looking for ways to provide my clients the safest and most up-to-date methods of permanent cosmetics via tattoo and microblading. I only use the highest quality of equipment, anesthetics, and pigments to achieve the best results and provide you with a phenomenal experience. In addition, I strive for the most natural and realistic effects in my craft. These range from hair strokes and eyeliner to a splash of color for your lips!
I include my clients in the process 100% of the way. This is so they feel comfortable and knowledgeable of the services they are about to receive as well as what precautions to take both for pre and post-care. My job is not only to provide you with the best and most beautiful permanent cosmetics but to give you a boost of confidence for your everyday life. I enjoy lifting other women’s spirits, supporting women business owners, and encouraging any gal pal to pursue her dreams!
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?
Nothing worthwhile is without challenge. I started my PMU business in November of 2019, in the middle of the pandemic. Many service based businesses were, and still are, struggling due to the effects of COVID. I knew that safety, cleanliness, and being as efficient as possible to get my clients in and out quickly would be important. Providing a safe and sterile environment for my customers made them comfortable to come receive their services.
Also, many PMU Artist come from a cosmetology or lash artist background with a client base. Although I have been around this industry my entire life, I have never worked directly in the industry and had to build my clientele from the ground up. During my apprenticeship, I offered some great deals to new clients! This helped get people through the door, but referrals from my customers is really what drove my success. I feel a bit lucky, but to be honest, I worked very long days to build my clientele, perfect my skills, and ensure I am on top of the industry standards for PMU. So I guess, maybe it was hard work and not actually luck.
We’ve been impressed with Bomb Brows LLC, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Bomb Brows offers permanent makeup/cosmetics for brows, lips, and eyes. Eyebrows can be a “game changer” for some women. Especially those who feel they never had brows to help sculpt their face or lost them from something like cancer. I include my clients 100% of the way so their comfortable with the change and love their new brows.
I specialize in custom brows offering several different styles of eyebrows such as; microblading, ombre brows, and combo brows. I also offer lip blushing tattoo and eye lash enhancement. Lip blushing is a cosmetic tattoo of the lips that enhances the beauty of the natural lip color, improving the shape of the lips, giving definition and the illusion of fullness.
Lash line enhancement is a thin line that sits at the root of your lashes and gives the illusion of a fuller lash line. Available for top, bottom or both. As always, my mission is “Helping women feel confident in their skin.”
Most importantly, I enjoy helping other women. I will always encourage someone to follow their dreams and work a little harder to make them happen.
Can you share something surprising about yourself?
Well, people always find it cool that I grew up a military brat and traveled the world quite a bit overseas. Other than that, I’m pretty normal!
But also, I am a mom and work a full-time job. It’s tough building your dream business while also working a full-time position. I have worked over ten years in the corporate world in HR/Sales, and it was a big decision for myself and my family to pursue being a small woman-owned business. I am very grateful for all the opportunity I have been given and earned throughout my professional career. People always ask me “how do you do it all?”- and to be honest it’s with the grace of God, the love and support of my husband, and the passion I have for my work and clients.
