We had the good fortune of connecting with Kelly Mattson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kelly, looking back, what do you think was the most difficult decision you’ve had to make?
Without a doubt this has been the most difficult year. Covid has wreaked havoc on so many businesses. If you’re a small business the chance of survival is dismal. My decision to downsize was the only option. This was an extremely difficult decision because I worked incredibly hard to obtain my storefront. In the end if you can let go of what you thought should’ve been, what you thought it should look like and your ego. You can survive, rebuild and succeed all over again.

What should our readers know about your business?
Kelly Lash is a premiere full-service eyelash extension company specializing in the art of individual lash extensions. We believe in consistency and making sure each and every person coming through the door has a wonderful experience. There are many salons and services tempting clients with low prices and fast services who are not using proper application methods or lash care. Applying long-lasting, natural looking lashes takes time and care to ensure there is no damage to the natural lash. Eyelashes are as unique as fingerprints, it just doesn’t make sense to provide women with a “one-size fits all” solution” – Kelly

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’m on the westside so always lots of options! Happy hour at Casa Del Mar, dinner at Hillstone or Elephante. Wine at Wally’s … shopping on Montana Ave…too many fantastic spots to choose from ! Malibu is a short ride and Calamigos Ranch is a favorite! Can not wait until everyone can reopen !!!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’m fortunate to have support in many different areas. LA, North Carolina & my home Boston. Friends, family and other business owners that are available to listen, give advice and guidance at a moments notice. Too many to mention but they all know exactly who they are !!
