Lash Lounge Owner’s Spotlight: Dana Bennazar from Jacksonville, Florida

We are excited to share that our new franchisee, Dana Bennazar from Jacksonville, Florida was recently featured in an article with the Jacksonville Business Journal. After a 10 year career in human resources, Dana took a leap of faith and decided to venture into the booming eyelash extension industry. She purchased the rights to The Lash Lounge in the Jacksonville area and is getting ready to embark on finding the very first of her five locations. We are excited to welcome Dana to the TLL Franchise family!

Here are some highlights from the article:

JBJ: Why make this change to begin with?

Dana: After you spend so long in the same field, and become specialized in that field, you stop being stimulated and learning new things. This change is new and different and exciting, and it’s a challenge for me.

JBJ: What attracted you to the Lash Lounge concept? What is it like?

Dana: The Lash Lounge is a compelling service. I like that it’s this glamorous service that is easy and maintenance-free. The service level of The Lash Lounge, their true respect for customers, their team, and the organization led me to want to be involved with them. They have a very high standard of how they treat their employees, and coming from HR, I really connected with that.

The Lash Lounge was founded in 2006 and it was the first salon of its kind that focused solely on eyelash extensions. What’s different is they are committed to a safe, sanitary and really customized approach to eyelash extensions. They have a face mapping system that allows the stylist to determine what the best placement and thickness is based on each client’s unique eye shape. I think it’s a perennial thing women are interested in: how we look and making a good presentation to others.

JBJ: Why do you think this concept will be successful in Jacksonville?

Dana: I think that there are a lot of professional women here who want to look great and don’t want to spend a lot of time doing it. A lot of them are moms or young professionals. This is an effortless way to look great all the time, without having to use so much product that washes off.
