The Barberrettes expands with new Coterie Purlieu spa, adds three jobs

Felix Compos opened The Barberrettes in Downtown Lansing last summer, and the barbershop has become so successful, that he’s already expanding. Compos has taken over the 2,500 square foot space next door to open Coterie Purlieu, a day spa.

“We needed to expand services downtown,” says Compos. “We’re excited. We have other services we’re going to be offering soon.”

Since the spa’s soft opening Coterie Purlieu has offered manicures, pedicures and massage therapy. Soon, tanning and permanent makeup services will be added to the list. Though the spa has yet to announce its opening, some of Compos three new employees are already booking up.

“We do a broad variety of things,” says Compos. “We’re also going to have a small boutique with wraps and jewelry.”

A native of Downtown Lansing, Compos is excited to be building his business in the same neighborhood in which he grew up. His plans are to continually add new services, such as a five-dollar shoe shine station for business people during the lunch hour.

Compos hopes to have Coterie Purlieu fully operational by April 23.
