Community Highlights: Meet Laquetta Williams of Goddess Lash Extensions

Today we’d like to introduce you to Laquetta Williams. 

Hi Laquetta, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to be a part of the beauty industry I just didn’t know in what area yet but I knew that I wanted to be a part of making women feel and look good. I remember when I was little, I would go from styling my dolls’ hair to making them new outfits out of whatever fabric I could find to even putting makeup on them lol. I knew I had an eye for beauty. Growing up as a little girl from the Northside of St. Louis, I grew up in a time where your looks determine how far you would get in life, and still to this day, I believe that it still kind of plays a role in your success journey. I started Goddess Lash Extensions in 2018 I came up with that name because I believe that “Every Women Is a Goddess You Just Need the Right Lash Tech to Bring It Out!” 

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?
No one said that the road to entrepreneurship would be easy I mean if it was, we would all be entrepreneurs, right? But what I can say that for me for every failure or L I’ve taken during this journey has taught me to never give up and always keep going. I’ve faced many obstacles during my course to success, there were times when I had no clients at all to just about being fully booked to where I could quit my 9-5 job then I hurt my back and had spinal surgery I felt like I had been knocked a thousand steps back; but a wise person once said: “It never matters how many times you fall down what matters is how many times you get back up”. I take this with me as my guide. And every single day I get up and I strive to be better than the person I was yesterday because I know that I am one step closer to reaching my goals. 

We’ve been impressed with Goddess Lash Extensions, 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?
I started Goddess Lash Extensions in 2018. It’s a lash extension business where we offer Lash Extension services as well as, Lash Lifts, Ombre Powder Brows, & Waxes. What sets us apart from everyone else in the Lash industry is the fact that it was established based on Person-Centered Service; meaning that Goddess Lash Extensions is ran according to how I would want to be treated as a customer, I’m very big on customer service and I feel that having great customer service is what makes a business succeed. I try to make every client feel comfortable as possible and I always ensure that my customers leave satisfied. I am most proud of how far I’ve grown in this industry and I appreciate the people who trusted me when I first started because looking back on my work from 2018 until now whew! I really didn’t have a clue as to what I was doing lol. But the continued trust and support from my clients is what truly helped me grow without them I wouldn’t be here today. 

What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
I grew up on the Northside of St. Louis it’s what made me it taught me to be tuff and face every obstacle head-on. So honestly, I can’t say I dislike my city I am grateful to be a native of St. Louis it was said to me that St. Louis breeds winners and that what I am.
