A new business joins the Leesville community, as Beauty and Brows LLC marks its grand opening this Saturday, September 3.

The business, called Beauty and Brows by J. Nicole, specializes in microblading, a makeup procedure that seeks to enhance and restore the subject's eyebrows to a natural shape.

The owner of the location is Jemima Jenkins, a newcomer to Leesville that’s looking to get to know the surrounding community while promoting the new business.

The grand opening acts as a means for her to invite some of Leesville’s residents and other private business owners out, sharing her story while also discovering some of theirs.

“It’s been a long journey, opening my own business,” Jenkins said. “I worked my way to this point, taking a leap of faith and I can’t wait to see what happens from here. I have a lot to offer, and hopefully the community recognizes that.”

Jenkins’ dream started with her professional interest in cosmetics, which eventually led to her studying and perfecting her skills in microblading. Of course, the business doesn’t just hold a professional interest in her.

“I’d always wanted to be in a ministry, to be a part of that message and word,” Jenkins explains. “I’m a Christian woman, so that part of my life is important. But, it really hit me, you don’t have to be in the ministry to reach people. We can share that message with anyone, and we can do it from anywhere. I like to think that this is the place where I can help spread that message that’s been an important part of my life, and spread that word with the community, to pay it forward.

“It was my own confidence that helped me to get to this point, and I want anyone who comes in here to know that they have that confidence in themselves as well to do great things.” Jenkins said.

The grand opening is open to the public, with plenty of refreshments and hor d'oeuvres available. Those that attend will be given the chance to win a number of door prizes, as well as the chance to know more about the business itself.

The event will be held on Saturday, September 8 at 3 p.m., and will take place at the Beauty and Brows LLC location, at 114 East Lula Street in Leesville.
