B-Bombshell Salon was an idea with the geek community in mind. It’s a place for people that identify as geeks or geek adjacent who don’t fit in with the yoga, kale, paleo, gym, sports types (it’s cool if you like those things too, we’ve been known to eat a few bushels of kale and attempt to be bendy at some point I’m sure!).
Our first hurdle was to obtain funding, so we launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise money. We managed to raise $7200 thanks to our awesome and generous contributors and we’re so thankful for them because this may have never happened otherwise. After that, we were able to secure a loan and then the hunt for a location began. We wanted something with transit access and was in a centralized city such as New Westminster.
Our original choice for location’s rent was rather astronomical (especially for a brand new business that’s just starting up) so after some searching with our amazing realtor, we found our first home at 808 20th Street.
We quickly outgrew that space, and it was time to expand! Our larger space has allowed us to hire more staff and expand our hours.
Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed, supported, cheered and critiqued us. We couldn’t have done it without you.
