When I need a beauty boost, I head to Splendor Beauty Emporium in Kimball Junction. Owner Delilah Gervais-Frank stocks an incredible line of products and also offers facials, waxing, microblading, lash extensions, and other services to keep you looking fresh. For those looking to improve their makeup game at home, Splendor gives lessons. And if you need a professional to do you up before a big event, Delilah’s team is up for the job. I chatted with Delilah to find out more about the story behind her business and how we can maintain healthy skin and hair through the cold, dry months.
How long have you lived in Park City? What drew you here and what do you love about the town?
I have been a business owner in Park City for 12 years. I have lived in many small communities but Park City has a supportive community spirit like no other. PC Pride!
When did you first get the idea for your business?
I opened my first store in Bozeman, Montana in 2005.
What’s your favorite aspect about your job and being in the field of beauty?
Ever since I was my daughter’s age (5 years old), I was obsessed with making people feel good … brushing my mom’s friends’ hair, painting fingernails, etc. As I have gotten older, I realize that small gestures can add up to a lot in people’s lives. I love having a place that can lift the spirits of others and give people confidence to face the day.
What are some services we should all get before winter hits?
I’m a big proponent of keeping your skin hydrated and glowing. A great way to maintain this is with our hydration facial. It will leave you plump and dewy!
What are your three favorite products right now and why?
Dr. Gross Gradual Alpha Beta Self-Tanning Towels. Keep the J Lo Glow going into fall. I always wear the Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Sticks because they don’t crease, run, or clump. And I never leave home without my Colorescience Powder Sunscreen. It provides instant protection upon application and can be reapplied over makeup.
