Meet Laura Frostad :
Originally from Phoenix, Laura met her husband while he was working in the United States and she moved back to his hometown, Calgary, where she started her dream & calling- Laura Brows. Mom to two young boys, lover of coffee and the outdoors, Laura is a mentor, as solid as a rock, and is always truly authentic to who she is.
I met Laura a few years ago in the same way as many others do- it started on Instagram when I heard about this magical place that could transform my brows with a simple tint and wax. Then I booked an appointment, and though it wasn't with Laura herself, I was really impressed with how Laura conducted herself as "the boss". With a confidence that can only come from a combined years of experience and passion for what one does, Laura made herself available for everything- whether a Brow Artist or a client had a question, she would stop what she was doing to help and share her thoughts. I also noticed how Laura went around to talk to each client and say hi to ensure that everyone felt comfortable, welcome, and like one of the family.
There's no question that Laura Frostad is an incredible, inspiring and generous human, and it's because of all this, that my co-planner, Chelsea, and I wanted her to be a part of this project. We asked Laura some questions to learn a little bit more about who she is, and you can read that interview below.
What are three pillars/foundations that your business is built on? And how does this correlate to your personal life?
What are some of your favorite local businesses?
I don't think I have any that are not my favorite.
Another thing I loved about what Laura said is when she talks about integrity and how when you mess up, you make it right and get back on track. This is something that is so important in both personal and business life. People make mistakes, and we need to remember that for ourselves and for others- nobody is perfect. But what truly makes the difference is how that mistake is handled and that it is made right.
Laura Frostad is a woman of direction and strength.
She knows that failure isn't a dirty word, rather it's an opportunity to refine and hone who you are and how you're going about things.
She is a huge supporter of people, charities and the local small business community.
She is a woman of deep core values, courage and self assurance.
She strives to grow, both personally and professionally, even when it seems like things are against her.
And I am so happy to have shared a bit of Laura's story with you.
I also need to thank and acknowledge those that helped make this shoot happen and help create & capture the beauty of this small business community here in Calgary. Yes, there are women in these photos, but there is also a group of women in the background that also encompass all that I talked about- these women are killing it and I am so honored to know them and to have worked with them.
