The studio specializes in hair and make-up for special occasions, adding momentum to the mini wedding boom on Passyunk. A bakery called Vanilya that specializes in wedding cakes, among other treats, is under construction next door and a wedding accessories and dress shop called Carolyn Verdi Boutique is opening next month on the 1700 block.
According to BBP’s Facebook page (where we got the photos, by the way) they started taking clients there last weekend. Owner Dana Persia has been doing booming wedding business on a freelance basis for five years. According to the website, Persia has a “team of experts” that can be dispatched to your location as well, so this shop fills another niche.
Welcome to the neighborhood, Dana. Seems a perfect business for this small location.
