Delirium Beauty Lounge: an Eco-conscious Option
Jennifer Urinko had a vision, one that she wanted to share with her community and make a reality; owning and operating an eco-friendly, organic, and cruelty-free salon. Not only would services encompass this ethos, but the hair and beauty products used and sold would too. To bring her dreams of entrepreneurship to actuality, she began working with the Alaska Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in Wasilla to ensure she prepared efficiently and launched successfully.
Over several years, Matanuska-Susitna Regional Director and Business Advisor, Julie Nolen, worked with and supported Urinko to ensure her success. She reflected, “Jennifer and I started working together in September 2015, about two years before she opened her beauty lounge. Jennifer came to the Mat-Su Center with a vision and experience but needed some assistance in bringing her ideas to fruition. Over the course of the past few years, we have worked through many different aspects of the business including researching different business models, developing a business plan and creating financial projections.”
Urinko’s dedication and hard work have paid off. In 2017 she opened the doors to Delirium Beauty Lounge and is living her dream of small business ownership, with room to grow. She shared, “Julie has been a great asset with helping me to create a business model that is flexible and meets my goals. She has a wealth of knowledge. I’m pleased to say that Delirium is celebrating its 1 year anniversary with the expansion and grand opening of our Lash extension & Brow Lounge. I would highly recommend the SBDC.”
The Alaska SBDC could not be prouder of Urinko’s vision, work ethic, and growing success.
