DULUTH, Minn.

(AP) A local beauty spa is getting a makeup, spa and salon expansion, and is hoping for a spot in DulUTH’s downtown.

The owners of La Merced Beauty Spa said the company hopes to open its first salon and makeup space in the spring.

The beauty spa, which opened in 2015, specializes in makeup and hair services.

Duluth was a major draw for beauty brands in the U.S. as well as overseas.

In addition to makeup and beauty services, La Merce Beauty Spa also offers a full line of hair products, hair accessories, nail products, makeup brushes, and nail polish.

The owners said they want to expand into other areas in the Duluth metro area and beyond, including Duluth and nearby St. Paul.

They also said they’re looking for a full-service spa to accommodate more customers.

“We’re really excited to expand our business into other markets,” said Stephanie Follman, who is also the co-owner of La Lure Beauty Spa.

“We’re hoping to be able to be the first beauty spa in Dulux, which is about two hours away from our business.”
