The brand hosted a re-launch party at its flagship megastore in Glasgow’s St Enoch Centre last night.

Hundreds queued to rub shoulders with Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, Big Brother favourite Bradley Riches and new Capital Scotland breakfast host Laura Anderson.

The store now features a cutting-edge base bar for customers to try before they buy, an event space dedicated to masterclasses as well as state-of-the-art hair diagnostic cameras.

The firm also has a store at Silverburn Shopping Centre.

Now the retailer has set its sights on a third Scottish location at Glasgow Fort in the near future.

CEO Brendan McDowell told The Scottish Sun: “The atmosphere is absolutely buzzing.

“We opened our first store here during Covid at Buchanan Galleries and we moved down into St Enoch.

“We’ve just done a full revamp of the store and the crowds are absolutely delighted.”

BPerfect has gained a worldwide following through its popularity with celebrities and influencers.

Mr McDowell added: “Ekin’s glow is everywhere, it’s gone viral on TikTok. It’s great to have her here.

“The local support we’ve received today means a lot as well.

“We’re hoping to open another store at Glasgow Fort if all goes well.”

The entrepreneur previously made the move to showcase his brand on Dragons’ Den to garner more attention.

His products impressed the hard-to-please dragons and he was quickly made a tempting proposal.

But viewers went wild for the entrepreneur after he turned down an £80,000 offer in a shock move.

Afterwards, Brendan shared he felt it “would be losing creative control” over his brand.

He also confessed he “didn’t need the money” as business was already booming.
