S tep inside and you understand why Got Beauty has been dubbed Salt Lake's "Girlie Mecca" It's floor-to-ceiling shelves are lined with thousands of professional hair products and high end beauty brands.
"Got Beauty has a way of tickling everyone pink" says owner Tammy Upwall. It's not just the choice of product that makes Got Beauty irresistible, it's the full service salon, petite day spa, and of course, the most essential of beauty therapies...shopping."
"Our ladies can pamper themselves with a Princess Pedicure, have the Best Brazilian Wax in town, and then get lost in our eclectic selection of shoes, locally made jewelry, brilliantly fun gifts, designer handbags, amazing accessories and even great reads!"
"I've always dreamed of having a place that makes women feel good. A place where we can be surrounded by all the things we love. With Got Beauty I get to realize that dream every day!"
There is no secret as to how Tammy Upwall came into the beauty business.
"My grandmother helped develop Max Factor and Redken, my uncle, several cousins and my niece are makeup artists for major movie studios, and my father opened Utah's first retail beauty supply." I spent summers as a girl working with my dad, where I learned the most wonderful lesson: that it is totally possible for a person to make a living while absolutely loving what they do!"
"While our fresh, fun product mix and amazing atmosphere are huge factors in allowing our inimitable personality to really shine through and set us apart from ordinary beauty stores." Upwall credits her success to her knowledgeable and personable staff. (Aka the "got beauty girls" led by Director of Operations Jennifer Holmstead, pictured on the right.)
"Our employees are always up to date with the latest ideas, products and fashions. We love what we do, and I believe that shows in everything around us and in our commitment to our customers."
