Michael and Anita Bohannon opened the doors of Bovanti Cosmetics & Spa initially in the nineteen -eighties. This was during the time that Luke and Laura ran General Hospital, just to give you an idea of how long ago this luxury conglomerate has been around. I was about five-years- old at the time. Dude, that’s over three decades!

Bovanti Cosmetics is actually the third echelon business that expanded since Avon and the infamous Mary Kay. Look, I’m not trying to break hearts or upset anyone cause I’m sure this next statement is going to be an all-out culture shock. However, I’m not a fan of Mary Kay, and I’m not a big fan of Avon either, although they did step their shoe game up by a small scope. Bovanti on the other hand, we’ll talk about my reasons for being so smitten with the brand in a little while. But, let me just give you a little more history about the company.

As I said, Bovanti Cosmetics originated moons ago in Atlanta, Georgia. They’ve become one of the largest dimensional companies since—since… Nothing comes to mind. Bovanti is a beauty oasis in addition to a resort without the benefit of staying overnight. I’m pretty sure they aren’t turning anyone away from showing up three or four times a week. “Aaaall are welcome to come into the light.”

So, that’s the history of the parents. The Georgia store is still the central location. However, the business is entirely too large for the A.
Look, folks, we are talking about a million dollar international corporation. They’ve kept it in Atlanta for as long as they could until their daughters decided to hone into their passions and become the Bovanti brand.

The Bohannon’s entreprenuel genes trickled down like sweet honey, and stuck to their business perceptive daughters, Marquis and Marquel Bohannon. Both girls are co-owners and operators of the second generation Bovanti Cosmetics & Spa at the Four Seasons Mall in Greensboro as well as the newest location at Northlake Mall. “Marquis and I have always wanted to expand our family brand, Bovanti Cosmetics. It’s our goal to make sure that Bovanti is a household brand. We’re taking Bovanti to the next level and are excited about what’s next,” says Marquel.

Talks about the store opening, stroked Charlotte with a Tsunami blow. “I wouldn’t say that getting into the Charlotte market was easy. I actually wanted to get into Northlake Mall two- to- three- years ago. And the opportunity was here but the location that they assigned us, to lease out, just didn’t feel right. We waited. God was telling us that this is not the right time. He was telling us to get ourselves together because we would’ve had to leave our Greensboro store. Now, we’re in a place that we can run both locations.

The Greensboro store can run on its own and we don’t have to be there,” says Marquis. The beauty spa isn’t even open yet and it’s collecting attention by the minute—Thank God I was in on this. Ya know? It was a no brainer when brandUscript pitched the story to me; I was delighted to speak to the successors. These young women are inspiring, pleasant, and influential. Its big news to get a Cosmetic and day spa at such a prevalent and popular location. The demographics alone are going to keep the Entrepreneur-Beauties busy for at least five-years.

My rhyme and reason for being so favorable over the Bovanti product is simple. The make-up isn’t overbearing. A little dab of eye shadow, one layer of foundation, and a hint of lip-gloss, will set your sexy to one hundred on the I keep it poppen- odometer. The cosmetics are lightweight. The lip-gloss isn’t sticky or too dark, even though the shade is a little obscure in the tube. Looks are truly deceiving. I prefer natural earth-tone make-up. Let’s say that you have an overnight guest—a nightcap.

Of course, you get up before him and wash your face, brush your teeth, apply a little eye shadow, as well as a thin layer of lip-gloss, and then hop into bed while hiding a few tic-tacks under the pillow (you’re welcome newbie’s) so he can awaken to sheer femininity. “He, actually thought you woke up like dis.”

Their products look natural. Secondly, I think when you enlist in makeup artistry or skin health; it should be from the best source. The girls matched their Bovanti foundation to my complexion and they hadn’t met me in person until the day of our interview…The women are extreme experts and that won me over lickety split.
