BEST NEW BUSINESS
Vakker Blomst Accessories
3626 L. Honoapiilani Rd., Lahaina
The words “beautiful flower” manage to roll off even our cumbersome American tongues with grace, so naturally the Norwegians say it better with “vakker blomst.” The blooming doodads of Vakker Blomst Accessories–handmade by hair stylist April Page–are as elegant as the business name behind them, and have been wowing wahine of the isle for the last two years. With a style that harkens to the glamor of the silent movie era–touched with tropical, nautical, fluttering flair–Page creates everything from everyday hair accessories to wedding veils, to feather extensions, to jewelry and more. “My son is the reason I strive to be better everyday though,” says Page. “I want him to see that dreams can come true if you work hard.” Whether augmenting local ladies’ allure for a night on the town to their big day, it’s no wonder Vakker Blomst’s been voted-in this year’s BOM.
