The Hello Beautiful Beauty Bar and Boutique will bring a variety of cosmetics and some special amenities to Pratt when its doors open in late May.

It's name says it all. Hello Beautiful Beauty Bar & Boutique will open its doors in downtown Pratt and bring cosmetics and some special extra amenities for the customers buying experience.

Jeri Mitchell is opening this new ladies boutique at 205 South Main in the former Crossroads clothing store. Renovations for the business are underway including removing the awning from in front of crossroads because it was allowing water to get into the building. A new sign is coming to identify the new store.

Hello Beautiful will feature long lasting lipstick, it stays on for three days, plus other cosmetics. LipSense, the long lasting lipstick, will be available along with a variety of foundations and blush.

Along with the cosmetics, Hello Beautiful will have SeneGence clothing plus jewelry and gift items. Her products will be moderately priced, Mitchell said.

Renovations are underway and Mitchell hopes to open the doors at the end of May. Among the changes inside the store will be a sit-down counter with bar stools where customers can get a make over.

Mitchell said she wants customers to come in and feel comfortable as they try on lipstick and other cosmetics.

"I want this to be a place to come and hangout and get a new outfit," Mitchell said.

Another element to the business is the possibility of skin care classes.

Mitchell has been working hard to get everything ready to open the new store. She only decided to start the new business in December 2017. She has been busy ever since getting merchandise and getting the building ready for customers.

Right now, Mitchell has no employees and no business hours have been set. As opening day draws closer, Mitchell will set days and hours of operations.

Those familiar with the interior of the store will see lots of changes. The inside is getting a new coat of paint and new lighting is being installed.

Besides in-store sales, Michell plans on having her products available for on-line sales as well. She will have a FaceBook page to keep customers informed on products and events at the store. She will also have Instagram for her customer convenience.

Her FaceBook group is Hello Beautiful VIP. Mitchell is still getting the word out about the new store and the page is not very active yet but she anticipates more activity as the news of the new business spreads and it gets closer to opening day. Her e-mail is hello

Mitchell is an independent Lipsense distributor and will bring her expertise to this new business venture in downtown Pratt.
