Downtown Business Spotlight: Studio 11 Beautique

Published

4 minute read

For this week’s business spotlight, we stopped into Studio 11 Beautique! This charming space is located at #310, 5008 50th Street (right above MC College), Red Deer. This studio offers a wide variety of aesthetic services in a very pleasant and modern setting. We sat down with Kristyn Sutherland, owner of Studio 11 to learn more!

What is your business?

Our business is basically a hub for entrepreneurs who are in the aesthetics industry. They are contracted out of Studio 11 and use this space to run their businesses. We can offer them the support they need such as marketing, technique classes, and business consulting. Our focus is to reset the industry, to move away from competition, and to concentrate on collaboration. We are looking at how we can work together to build something big.

When did your business open?

Studio 11 was previously owned and then I took over September 2019. The previous owner was working with 3 or 4 staff members and now we are up to 9.

What makes your business unique?

Our focus is collaboration over competition. We want to make sure we are there to support each other and our clients. Women in business are very popular right now and it’s important for us to show that we are an example of how we can work together.

What are some products/services that you offer?

We offer lash services including extensions, lifts, and tints. We currently have 3 nail techs for nail services, we offer spray tans and all waxing services.

Why did you choose Downtown Red Deer as the location for your business?

I was running a home-based business in Penhold when I was approached by Studio 11.  I came here for a few personal appointments and when I decided to purchase the business, I came on secretly as a staff member. The lease on the business was up in September so I had the option of moving and going somewhere or staying. I choose to stay mainly because most of my clients are in Blackfalds, Penhold and the Lacombe area and the downtown is central to these areas. I’ve had some issues getting my clients to come downtown, but I’ve had to redirect their thoughts a little in terms of what the downtown has to offer.

What do you think makes Downtown vibrant?

I can take a break and walk down to City Roast and see and experience what’s great about downtown. It is beautiful if you focus on what is beautiful about it. All the different little stores, the different people that you meet, it is unique and cultural.

I love Downtown Red Deer because… of the live music in the summertime, the outdoor patio, the great shops, and restaurants is what I love the most!

These inspiring ladies at Studio 11 are great examples of what empowering women in business Is all about! They are on the pulse of a changing industry by their unwavering support for each other and their community! Be sure to stop in and see Kristyn and her team for all your aesthetic needs!

The Laft Hus celebrates 35 years in Red Deer

Published on

The Laft Hus is a replica of an 18th-century farmhouse in the Numedal district in Norway. It was created through the efforts of volunteers, and it officially opened to the public in 1987.

The museum contains many old artifacts and examples of Norwegian arts and crafts and a small butikk of Norwegian items and the house itself is of note due to its traditional sod roof.

The museum and gift shop are open to visitors every day (except Mondays) from June 1 through to August 31, 9:00 am to 3 pm. For the remainder of the year, the Norwegian Laft Hus is open each Wednesday when a group of ladies meet to work on Norwegian arts and crafts.

This year, the Laft Hus celebrates its 35th year in Red Deer. The annual festival will take place on June 18, 2022 and will have many activities, entertainment, Norwegian food and vendors for the visitors to enjoy. Help us celebrate!
