Simple Beauty + Lovely Lashes for the Holiday Season

The holidays can be a whirlwind! Parties, presents, potlucks—sometimes, it feels like you have to be in 20 places at once. Who has time to look cute?! A Lash Lounge woman, that’s who! Because when you live the lash life, it’s beauty made easy. If everything else could just calm the heck down. 😉

See how the ease of an effortless beauty routine is taking Kaitlyn and Maria through this season…and just in time for the holidays!

KAITLYN: PROFESSIONAL + LOVER OF EYELASH AND EYEBROW TINTING

Kaitlyn is a public relations director in Detroit. Day in and day out, Kaitlyn is busy! When she’s not working, she’s throwing herself into her real passion: interior design. But where does she go to relax? Where does she feel “on top of the world”? The Lash Lounge, of course!

Making Time for Her Favorite Services

Even with her busy schedule, Kaitlyn makes time for not just 1 favorite service, but 3: a lash lift, lash tint and eyebrow tint at The Lash Lounge Rochester Hills – Boulevard Shoppes.

Kaitlyn explains why she’s hooked on this trio: “I have naturally super, super light lashes and brows, so having them tinted makes me feel so confident to step outside without makeup on.”

That B-e-a-utiful Feeling

And that’s what it’s all about at The Lash Lounge: embracing your true self!

“Obviously, embracing your own beauty is key, but I think we can all agree that we have our own vices that make us feel beautiful. For me, it’s dark lashes! I’m a mascara junkie and by getting my lashes tinted, I don’t have to worry about throwing on a few coats of mascara before leaving my house!”

A Simplified Look for The Season

Schedules, to-do lists, gatherings, travel—the list goes on and on when it comes to the busy holiday season. Luckily, Kaitlyn already knows her lash and brow tint, plus that life-changing lash lift, are all going to add up to be a total lifesaver for her.

She’ll be looking incredible and carrying an extra boost of confidence every step of the way and that, ladies and gentlemen, is how Lash Lounge guests conquer the holiday madness!

MARIA: WORKING MOM DEVOTED TO VOLUME EYELASH EXTENSIONS

With a passion for cosmetics and a killer wardrobe, Maria loves the valuable time she gets to spend at The Lash Lounge Metuchen – The District at Metuchen each month. The results she receives allows this busy lady to enjoy a simplified beauty routine and gives her that gorgeous feeling she deserves as she crushes each day as a working mom.

A Busy Life: Behind the Scenes

With a family plus another little one on the way, Maria admits making time for herself isn’t always easy, but it’s a priority—especially when it comes to her visits to The Lash Lounge. She explains, “I currently work as a program coordinator for Rutgers and I’m also a full-time blogger! So, I basically have two jobs. As a pregnant mom, I am always exhausted and feeling less than glamorous; it’s nice being able to run out the door and always feel “done up” without doing anything!”

The Benefits of “Me Time”

When we spoke with Maria, she told us that with all she has going on in life, going to The Lash Lounge and getting lash extensions makes her feel more like herself.

“I love my service because it’s a chance to have “me time.” I rarely get time to treat myself, so this is my alone time. I also love chatting with my stylist; we always end up laughing and the time goes by so fast!”

A Custom Lash Look…in Time for the Holidays

During their consultation, Maria and her stylist designed the perfect custom lash look: volume lash extensions with a dramatic D curl—such a stunning combo!

When it comes to the festivities quickly approaching, Maria says, “I think these lashes will make me feel so fancy for the holidays! Especially with Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner!”


Stay tuned! We’ll be sharing more inside peeks into the lives of real Lash Lounge guests, their lives and how they’re taking their custom lash and brow creations with them this season. Ready to start your own time-saving, holiday transformation? Find a Lash Lounge near you!

Tips & Tricks

Guest + Stylist Comfort: Proper Positioning for an Exceptional…

While working our lash and brow magic, we want everyone to feel relaxed and cared for each and every time. See the steps we take to ensure each guest and stylist (yep, their comfort is important, too!) is positioned properly, as well as some examples from one of our corporate training experts, Shelley.

HEAD + NECK SUPPORT FOR ALL!

At the end of the day, comfort for everyone is the name of our lash game. We not only want to make sure our guests are cozy and relaxed (hello, lash naps!), but we also want to make sure our stylists are comfortable, too. This is super important; a comfy stylist is one who can lash at their highest potential.

Guest Comfort

To provide you with the best possible comfort for your neck, shoulders and back, we place a special pillow under your neck area to give you that much needed head support while you’re lying down. If at any time the neck pillow needs to be repositioned, always let your stylist know!

Stylist Comfort

Being able to comfortably reach a guest’s lashes and brows without slouching or hunching over is very important for our stylists’ health and their ability to provide you with your custom service.

That’s a big part of why we get you settled in first. If you’re not positioned just right, then your stylist might try and compensate with her own posture, which could result in tightness or soreness in their back and shoulders.

OUR BUDDY, THE BOLSTER

One of the first steps we take when you lie down on our plush spa bed is to set you up with a bolster under your legs; this gets you in the perfect position to relax!

Comfort Accommodations— Oh, the Possibilities!

Because we know not all guests are built alike, we have developed special accommodations for guests with unique needs. For guests with back issues or those who are pregnant, we have a couple tricks up our sleeves.

Side Positioning

Something we’ve found to be super effective is transitioning the guest from lying on their back to their side. We’ll place one bolster behind their back for extra support and the other bolster either along their torso area or between their knees.

Don’t worry—we’ll always make sure their neck is comfortable and their head is as straight as possible, so the stylist can reach them properly. Good thinking! 😉

See how Shelley demonstrates this type of side positioning in the video below.


From our stylists to our beloved guests, we want everyone to feel as comfortable as possible. Which reminds us, learn about the 6 Ways to Enhance Your Lash Lounge Experience and start counting down the time ‘til you get to sink into that relaxing spa bed for your favorite service!

Eyelash and Eyebrow Tinting: The Dynamic Duo

Could your lashes and brows use a little extra oomph? If you’re dreaming of the day you can toss the brow pencils and mascara out the door for good, then dream no more. Let The Lash Lounge highlight your beautiful natural facial features with eyebrow and eyelash tinting.

TINTING: THE WHAT, WHO + HOW

What Is Tinting?

Our life-changing tinting services allows you to enhance your eyelashes and eyebrows with a deeper, natural-looking color and thicker appearance, bringing those lackluster hairs back to life!

Who Can Get a Tint?

Anyone can get a lash and brow tint! We usually perform this service on guests who have light-colored or barely-there natural lashes and brows.

For guests with light-colored hair, we always recommend pairing lash extensions* with a lash tint. After all, lashes look the most lustrous when they’re all the same color! If you’re already a member, we recommend adding a tint to your refill every other visit (every 4 weeks).

*If you’re wondering if a lash tint will reduce the retention of your eyelash extensions, it won’t! Tinting ingredients will not affect the adhesive bond between the extension and your natural lash, so you can continue your lash life as usual!

How Long Does the Service Take?

The tint application process is quick! We’re talking 30 minutes—just enough time for some quick beauty rest!

How Long Will A Tint Last?

Both our eyelash and eyebrow tinting services offer an immediate pop of color. Even better? It lasts for 4 weeks!

WHY GET A TINT AT THE LASH LOUNGE?

When you get a lash and/or brow tint at one of our salons, your stylist will combine both their expertise and our industry-leading products to customize the perfect look for you! Flaunt it day in and day out!

Our lash and brow dyes are 100% safe and gentle.* Plus, they are all created specifically for use on lashes and brows. Because we use a low-volume developer and ask that you keep your eyes closed for the duration of your appointment, there’s very little risk of that nasty stinging or burning sensation you might have experienced in the past.

* If you have allergies or allergy sensitivities, our dyes could be a trigger and we recommend that you give the salon a call before booking an appointment. Please be sure to ask us which services would be a better fit for you.

Custom Tinting Process

Here at The Lash Lounge, we use your natural lashes and brows as our artistic canvas. Our professional stylists will work with you to choose the best color and shape for your new lash and brow look. We’ll choose colors that complement both your skin tone and your lovely locks.

You might have heard of other methods of brow tinting, such as henna. What you might not know is they’re not always great options. Unlike our tinting applications, henna will tint the skin, too! Henna also tends to veer more toward reds and browns, seldomly matching a person’s hair or skin color.

RIVETING RESULTS

When you get an eyebrow or eyelash tint at The Lash Lounge, the results are mesmerizing. You’ll give new life to your lashes and brows and add beautiful definition to your stunning natural facial features.

Who better than real Lash Lounge guests to showcase the transformation?

See the lovely Julia header photo? She was one of the models from our “Lash Look” photoshoot; she’s literally glowing after her own custom lash and brow tint!

This guest from The Lash Lounge Dobbs Ferry – Rivertowns Square had her eyelashes and eyebrows tinted and the result? A beautiful, natural look.

A NEW LOOK AND BEAUTY ROUTINE (GOODBYE, PRODUCTS!)

The moment you lay eyes on your new lashes and brows marks the beginning of your new love story, starring tinting.

Add in the time you’ll save in the front of the mirror each morning and you’ll be hooked for good! Your lashes and brows will be darker and fuller than ever. Let’s face it, they’ll be captivating—they’ll be so good, it’ll be time to toss the mascara and brow pencils. You won’t have to worry about those icky, unattractive clumps and mascara smudges anymore, even when you swim!


EYELASH AND EYEBROW TINTING NEAR ME?

If you’re more than ready to let your natural beauty shine and turn some heads with a lash and brow tint, you can conveniently select a salon in your area, make an appointment online and be on your way to experiencing the beauty and benefits of lash and brow tinting!*

*Lash and eyebrow tinting are not available at all salons. Please check with your local Lash Lounge for availability near you.

The Beauty, Inside and Out, of a Real Lash…

Get ready for another jaunt into the lash life of the next model from our “Lash Look” photoshoot. Meet Denise! See what this wife, mother and grandmother had to say about her Lash Lounge experience and how lash extensions have changed her life—not just on the outside, but on the inside, too!

LIFE BEFORE EYELASH EXTENSIONS

As a busy, on-the-go woman who is all about putting her family first, Denise has always made time for her beauty routine which, prior to getting lash extensions, consisted of a natural makeup look. Then there was her mascara saga. “I definitely have a love-hate relationship with mascara, but like most women my age, I needed it! Even the most expensive mascara wasn’t perfect and always left flakes and smeared.”

A CUSTOM LASH TRANSFORMATION + TEARS OF JOY

When she arrived at the photoshoot, Denise was paired with stylist Tennia and together they collaborated on her target lash look. Tennia observed Denise’s natural lashes, as well as her eye shape. To enhance Denise’s lovely features, Tennia went with a classic natural application, silk lashes and a captivating C curl. Since Denise is blonde, Tennia also recommend a lash tint to give her natural lash hairs a little extra oomph along with her custom extensions.

Once Denise’s application was complete, it was the magical mirror moment—the time for her to see her new, flawless look. We asked her to recount her epic reaction: “I cried—with happiness! I honestly could not believe how natural my lashes looked. I initially worried lash extensions might look really fake on me, but all of my apprehensions were for nothing. I still looked like me, only better!”

REVELING IN A REFRESHED LASH LIFE

Shortly after the photoshoot, we circled back with Denise to ask her about her new life with lashes. Did it simplify her busy life? Did she feel different? We couldn’t wait to hear all the details!

Magical Mornings With Eyelash Extensions

Few women are eager to jump out of bed to put on their makeup. Denise is no exception! With lash extensions, “the best part is waking up in the morning with beautiful lashes. I’m able to just give them a little fluff in the morning and go.”

“Lash extensions are the answer for women like me. They are gorgeous, long and full and I never ever have to worry about flaking, smearing mascara again.”

That “Natural Beauty” Kind of Feeling

We think Denise is a natural beauty inside and out! But like many women, that outside feeling didn’t quite match how she felt on the inside until she discovered lash extensions. “From the first moment I saw my new lashes, I could not stop looking at myself for days! Seriously, I was amazed by the transformation. I’ve never been a natural beauty, but lash extensions made me feel like one.”

Awakening Inner Confidence

Time and time again, we’re humbled (and even brought to tears) when we learn how much our services provide our guests with a confidence boost. After getting that first full set of lashes, many go on to accomplish things they feel extra proud of simply because they feel like the best version of themselves.

For Denise, it was a profound yet simple awakening! “I love how close I can be to someone, look them straight in the eyes and know all they see is me, my eyes, my genuineness without worry about the distraction of mascara on my face. For me, it is such a confidence booster.”

LIFE-CHANGING, LASTING IMPRESSIONS

We cannot thank Denise enough for her honesty and willingness to share how much her first full set of eyelash extensions has had on her life.

“The wonderful experience and interactions I had with all of the women on your team and the beautiful and welcoming way they made me feel left an impact on me. What I noticed was how they treated each other, not just me. They built one another up with kindness and affirmation. They didn’t act like the world—they represented what the world SHOULD act like! I know it sounds funny because we are talking about lashes, but what I took away from the whole encounter was life changing. Making others feel beautiful, inside and out, makes me feel and look beautiful, too! I think of this as I make friends in my new neighborhood, volunteer in my community and bond with my granddaughter. Be sincere, be kind, be beautiful!”

But wait, there’s more! Denise has a message for YOU, too: “If you are thinking of treating yourself to a new set of lashes, I highly recommend this female-owned company.”


It was our hope and dream when we began planning this photoshoot to make ALL women look and feel beautiful. What we couldn’t have imagined is the lasting impact our models would have on our lives as well. Thank you, Denise!

CLEANSING AND MOISTURIZING: HOW TO CARE FOR LASH EXTENSIONS

To let our skin breathe, we all need to take a break from makeup and beauty products every so often. Today, we’re delighted to share some expert tips from Shelley, one of our corporate training stylists, about her own beauty, cleansing and moisturizing routines and how to clean eyelash extensions.

“Go-To” Products for a Fresh Face and Lashes

As we’ve mentioned before, not all beauty products are safe to use with lash extensions. But don’t fret! We have some incredible products here at The Lash Lounge that we not only sell in our salons, but that we use and love ourselves.

In fact, if you’ve been tuning into our weekly #TrainingTakeoverTuesday stories on Instagram, you have probably seen Shelley share her favorite cleansing products to keep her face fresh and her lashes clean.

As she mentioned, Shelley usually wears a full face of makeup each day. When it comes time to cleanse, her “go-to” product is The Lash Lounge’s Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover Gel. The great thing about this product is it’s not only incredible for safely removing eye makeup (yes, even with lash extensions), but it’s also wonderful for removing all-over face makeup. Then, when she’s ready to get her lash line squeaky clean, she uses our favorite dynamic duo: our Eyelash Foaming Cleanser + Brush.

How to Safely Cleanse and Moisturize With Lash Extensions

Let’s look back at Shelley’s cleansing routine. When it’s time for her to wipe her face and gently remove the cleanser from her skin and around her eye area, she does this with a lint-free cloth like the MakeUp Eraser.

Why use this type of cloth over a regular washcloth? A polyester-blend cloth won’t catch, pull or snag your lashes. So, the next time you’re leaving your lash refill appointment, ask your stylist if they carry a cloth like this. If they do, be sure to grab one. Otherwise, make sure to pick one up the next time you’re at the store. Trust us, you’ll never go back to a regular cloth again!

Like Shelley, most of us want to keep our skin and area around our eyes moisturized. But how do we do that while also keeping that extra moisture and oil-based products away from our lashes? See how Shelley does it! She strategically keeps it away from her eyes, especially her eyelids for optimal eyelash extension care.


We hope these few simple tips will help you care for your eyelash extensions, keep your skin clean, moisturized and looking flawless!

Stay tuned to our Instagram each Tuesday as Shelley (and the rest of our fabulous training tribe) share more of their knowledge and fun behind-the-scenes moments from life at The Lash Lounge!

Breast Cancer Awareness: 7 Ways to Show Support

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and as a company by women for women, we are honored to devote today’s blog to the strong women, their families and friends who have been affected by breast cancer.

Whether large or small, see how you can show support!

1. WEAR PINK

Throw on a scarf, paint your nails, wear a cute shirt or rock some stylin’ shoes. Whatever you do this month, add a pop of pink to your look!

And in case you missed it, see the 8 products Bobbie Thomas, style editor of the TODAY Show, recently shared with Hodda Kotb and Maria Shriver. They’re not only pink, but they also give back…which we love!

Make that extra time you spend on Facebook and Instagram count this month; show some support for the cause on your social pages.

You never know who might see it and how it could make an impact.

3. DO GOOD WITH YOUR DOLLARS

Many retailers—from large chain stores to our favorite local shops—are running promotions where a percentage of proceeds are donated to various breast cancer organizations. So, while you’re shopping, look for the businesses giving back!

One Brand We’re Blown Away By: Kendra Scott*

Who doesn’t love Kendra Scott? From the jewelry itself to the woman behind it all, this company is doing amazing things. Founder Kendra Scott lost her best friend Holley to the disease in 2016. Breast cancer research and education was very important to Holley, which drove Kendra to start the (BCRF) to honor Holley and her legacy.

This month, 20% of proceeds from the “Shop for Good: Breast Cancer Awareness” giveback suite from Kendra Scott will go to the BCRF research grant. Also with every purchase, one piece of jewelry will be given to a woman affected by cancer. How great is that?!?

Since 2016, Kendra Scott has invested over $793,000 for breast cancer research and support. They have also given 39,000 pieces of jewelry to women undergoing treatment through their “Buy One, Gift One” program. This year, they’re funding a $250,000 research grant through the foundation.

Ready to add some Kendra Scott to your shopping cart? We thought so!

4. FITNESS FOR A CURE

Whether it’s an organized walk, run or special event at your local gym (hello, Zoombathon!), jump on board and get active. Your participation will not only show support for breast cancer, you’ll also be promoting self-care, something we all need to rally behind!

Don’t stop there! Call your best gal pals and invite them to tag along, too! And if you want to rock some pink athleisure wear while you work out, see these fun and functional options from Macy’s.*

5. EDUCATE YOURSELF

Most of us don’t know all of the facts about breast cancer, but we should! Take control and educate yourself. Be proactive. Learn what you can do to reduce your risk. Learn how often you should visit your doctor for regular breast checks and mammograms. After you’ve done some research, don’t keep it to yourself; share this priceless information with friends and family.

6. WINK PINK

Supporting a great cause, empowering women and customizing beautiful lashes is what we live for! Here at The Lash Lounge, we love to add a little extra flair to your beloved lash extensions. One way we do this is with colored lashes.

Many of our salons offer a variety of colored lash extensions, including pink. This month,“Wink Pink” in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. and make a statement when you give pink lashes a try! You might never go back.

7. GRACIOUSLY GIVE

No amount is ever too small when it comes to donating to a good cause. Money is always appreciated, especially when it comes to research.

Tips & Tricks

Fall Lash Shedding: How to Care for Your Eyelash…

October is officially here and fall is in the air! But what do we dread about our favorite season? Fall lash shedding. Today, we’re sharing why this happens and what you can do in order to keep your lashes lush and full! #yourewelcome

WHAT IS LASH SHEDDING?

Remember when you’d make a wish after noticing a fallen lash? Yes, that was lash shedding and we all experience it, even with lash extensions.

Even though they completely replenish and regrow every 60–90 days, our lashes fall out in cycles. But don’t worry, this IS a healthy part of our hair-growth routine. On average, we lose up to 20% of our natural lashes every two weeks and, depending on our individual hair-growth, we can shed between 1 and 5 natural eyelashes per day.

The cool thing is that right at this very moment you have a new eyelash growing to replace a lash that fell out and, for the majority of us, this is a process that we hardly notice.

FALL LASH SHEDDING: WHY DOES IT HAPPEN?

You know how some animals shed their winter coats? Well, it’s mostly the same for us and lash shedding!

Why does this happen and why this time of year? As fall approaches and the seasons and temperatures begin to change, so does the humidity. This change is what can alter our lash growth cycle and can be the reason we notice a few fallen lashes here and there.

During this time, our bodies are increasing oil production to keep not only our hair, but also our skin from getting dehydrated. Just like it’s not uncommon for us to notice additional shedding with the hair on our head this time of year, it’s the same with our lashes.

HOW DOES LASH SHEDDING AFFECT EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

Here’s the deal: Lash shedding does not magically stop when you have extensions. It’s important to know that when you have a natural eyelash that sheds, your extension will go with it. For all of us, each individual eyelash is programmed to reach a certain length, fall out, then regrow, taking the extension along for the ride.

But, there’s good news! As long as you keep up with your lash refill appointments every 2–3 weeks (like the good lash guest we know you are…wink, wink), your lash line will stay full and gorgeous!

EYELASH EXTENSION CARE DURING THE SHEDDING CYCLE

Keep Your Lashes Clean

When you notice your lashes are shedding, one important thing to do is to keep your extensions clean. Why? During a seasonal change, additional buildup can accumulate along your lash line. To prevent this, use a lash extension-safe cleanser like our special eyelash foaming cleanser that will not only keep your lashes squeaky clean, but can also be used as an all-over facial cleanser. Talk about a win-win!

Another quick tip: Brush your lashes daily with a clean lash wand. This will keep your lashes in place and help to brush away any residue that may have landed along your lash line.

Use A Lash Sealant

Investing in a lash sealant is a good idea year-round, especially during the fall season. While it will not keep your lashes from shedding, a sealant will extend the life of the adhesive, locking your extensions in place for a longer period of time. Just think of it as an extra layer of protection for your lashes during the fall lash shedding season.

We have 2 sealants here at The Lash Lounge:
Our Black Diamond Sealant is a daily-use product that add a dark sheen and extends the life of your extensions. Our Protecting Sealant is used twice a week and is perfect for those with active lifestyles, anyone who lives in high humidity areas and those with oily skin.

Do yourself a favor and snag one of these “must-have” sealants during your next appointment. You’ll thank us later!

Keep Up with Your Lash Refills

Like we’ve mentioned before, it’s so important you do not miss a lash refill appointment…like, ever! Coming in for refills every 2 weeks will allow you to maintain that voluptuous lash look you love, even during the lash shedding cycle. Check out our membership options to make it even easier!


Never forget we’re here for you! If you have lash extensions and have some concerns about how many lashes you’re shedding, chat with your stylist. They are the trained experts when it comes to all things lashes and they’re here to help and offer tips along every step of your lash journey!

Tips & Tricks

5 FINISHING TOUCHES FOR YOUR HOMECOMING LOOK

Whether you’re on Homecoming court or just really into showing some school spirit, take your look up a notch and get game day-ready! Your social media pics will be stand-outs!

1. A WINNING LOOK: HYBRID LASH EXTENSIONS

Hybrid lash extensions for Homecoming are calling your name! Why hybrid? You can get the best of both our classic and volume applications across your lash line, leaving you with a full and fluffy look accented by gorgeous texture. Now, that goes with every dress!

Plus, consider the alternative: No one loves standing in front of the mirror fighting those pesky lash strips. Then, there’s the added fear of keeping them in place all night. Don’t be the person that misses the big play ’cause you had to run to the restroom to stick them back on—ugh! Go with lash extensions instead!

Why choose professionally applied lash extensions over lash strips?
Lash extensions from The Lash Lounge will stay put! Plus, if you get them done the week before, you’ll look fabulous for spirit week and all the fun leading up to Homecoming Day!

Leaving your lashes in the pros’ hands is always a good idea. You’ll get the pristine lash look that’ll make you the envy of all the girls. Plus, you’ll have peace of mind they’re properly applied and will last way longer than the lash strips from the drugstore.

2. UP YOUR NAIL GAME

No Homecoming look is complete without some showstopping nails!

Here are a few favorites to accelerate your nail game:

  • Rhinestones
  • Graphics
  • Reversed French tips
  • Tie dye
  • Glitter (always a glam go-to!)

Of course, when it comes to showing school spirit, any design that incorporates your team’s colors or even your mascot is a must! Just ask Seventeen.com!

 

 

3. SCORE BIG WITH A LASH LIFT

If you’re not quite ready to jump on the lash extension express just yet, it’s okay! Your dreams of amping up your lash game for Homecoming are not over; you can get a lash lift instead!

A lash lift is like a lash perm for your lashes. This service is ideal for those who have very straight or flat eyelashes and anyone who could use a little extra oomph added to their natural lashes. Pair it with a lash tint and make your eyes really pop!

Plus, if you fall in love with your new lashes (like we know you will), there’s not much you need to do to keep them in check. Just let them dry and avoid mascara for 24 hours after your service. After that, just keep them clean and give them a little brush every day. Then, visit your salon every 6–8 weeks for a new treatment!

Trust us, when you take all of those pics with your family and friends at the big game, you’ll love you new, radiant look.

4. TEAM BROW TRANSFORMATION

If you’ve been putting your brows on the backburner, now is a better time than ever to bring them back to life. You’ll be surprised how much a brow transformation can do wonders for your overall look!

Whether they need to be shaped and cleaned up with brow threading or you need a more defined look with a brow tint, The Lash Lounge can transform those barely-there brows and make them look “wow” just in time for all of those videos and photos before, during and after Homecoming.

 

 

5. TACKLE YOUR TRESSES WITH HIGHLIGHTS

Calling all color lovers! If you love the idea of adding a little life to your lovely locks for Homecoming but don’t feel like doing anything permanent, try clip-in hair extensions! There are a ton of options out there and some start as low as $10 or less (woohoo!). Check out some we found on Amazon.

Whether you want to add subtle golden highlights to enhance your natural hues or you want to show true school spirit with some festive pops of color, clip-in extensions are the way to go!


If you’re finally ready to transform your lashes and brows, we’re ready to team up with you! Find a salon near you and fall in love with a customized, winning look all your own!

Lash Curls: Three Options to Customize Your Look

Here at The Lash Lounge, we’re all about collaborating with our guests and personalizing a look all their own. One very important step to any custom lash design is selecting one of our three curls. Today, we’re excited to share how each curl is unique, just like our guests!

CONSULT + COLLAB

During every appointment for lash extensions, you’ll have a personalized consultation with one of our trained, talented stylists. During this time, your stylist will chat with you about the different customizable elements of a lash look, including your curl options.

Here at The Lash Lounge, we have three different curl options: C Curl, D Curl and L+ Curl. Each curl creates a unique effect and is recommended based on the look you’re going for and/or how your natural lashes are shaped.

Let’s take a closer look at each curl option so you can see for yourself just how uniquely beautiful each curl is!

C CURL

The softest curl we offer at our salons is the lovely C Curl. It is also the “go-to” curl option for guests who want their lashes enhanced yet desire a more natural lash look.

D CURL

For those guests who are a little more on the lively side when it comes to their lash style, the D Curl is a beautiful option. It is the tightest curl we offer and gives a gorgeous, dynamic appearance. Many guests with a D Curl often say their lashes give them more of an “awake” look and, ladies, we all know we need that, right?

L+ CURL

If you have natural lashes that are more on the straight side or tend to point downward, then the L+ Curl is for you! Time and time again, guests fall in “lash love” with the L+ Curl because it gives them the greatest, most gorgeous lift!

CURATING THE PERFECT LASH CURL

So, how do we get 3 different, yet downright perfect curls? Let us tell you!

We like to “heat” things up a bit here at The Lash Lounge, which is why our lashes undergo a double heat-roll process to ensure a beautiful, long-lasting curl. You and your stylist will work together to determine which curl is best for your natural lashes and for you!

REAL, CUSTOM RESULTS

We know you want to see more, so we‘re sharing photos of 3 real guests, each with a different, gorgeous lash curl!

The Look and Life of a Real Lash Lounge…

Drum roll, please! We recently held our very first “Lash Look” photoshoot with real Lash Lounge guests as our models (whoop!, whoop!). Today, we’re overjoyed to share an inside look into the lash life of one of our lovely models, Paroma. See what this music-loving mother has to say about her lash transformation and how she’s applied her new look and confidence to her life. Let’s meet Paroma!

LIFE BEFORE LASHES

As a computer software professional in an office environment, it has always been important to Paroma to put her best foot forward each day; and that includes looking and feeling put together. Before answering our “Lash Look” model call, Paroma (who is also mom to a darling 5-year-old little boy) had never given lash extensions a go. And when it came to her daily beauty routine, she was no stranger to spending extra time each morning with those dreaded tasks of applying mascara and working to get her eyeliner on just right.

A CUSTOM LASH LOOK, PLUS THAT MIRROR MOMENT!

When the day finally arrived for Paroma to join us at our corporate training center in Southlake, Texas, the lash anticipation was high and excitement in the air! First, Paroma sat down with one of our uber talented corporate training stylists, Shelley, to chat about her desired lash look. Everything from her eye shape, lifestyle and natural eyelashes were all carefully considered in order to create her perfect, customized lash creation. To complement her beautiful, natural features and existing lashes, Shelley went with a volume natural application, silk lashes and a stunning D curl, giving Paroma the full, lush lash line she had her heart set on.

After her full set application was complete, it was time to lift the lash curtain and hand over the mirror for Paroma to feast her eyes on her lash transformation. Two words came to her mind when she first saw her new lashes: BRIGHT and BEAUTIFUL! She  just couldn’t believe how much the extensions enhanced her eyes, how much brighter her face looked and, of course, how beautiful her lashes made her look and feel!

A NEW LASH LIFE

Not long after the photoshoot, we checked in with Paroma to find out what she had been loving most about her new life with lashes. Did they add convenience to her daily beauty routine? Did they make her feel empowered and ready to conquer the day? We simply couldn’t wait to hear what she had to share!

Instantly Alive

After receiving her gorgeous full set of volume lashes, Paroma woke up every morning to a pleasant surprise she described as a “refreshed look” and that was without a stitch of makeup, too!

What Morning Makeup Routine?

Since Paroma has to get up at 6 a.m. and gets not only herself ready but also her son, this busy wife and mom has loved her new, simplified beauty routine thanks to lash extensions. She save loads of time since her eyes no longer need several coats of mascara or eyeliner. “Lip gloss is all I have needed,” she said.

Clothed in Lash Confidence

Another incredible part of Paroma’s lash transformation was the newfound confidence she gained. She shared “I’m more comfortable to feel natural on a daily basis.”

This is music to our ears because we love that she now has the ability to embrace her natural beauty in a way she has not done before.

Compliment City!

That extra confidence boost Paroma had also came from all of the compliments she was getting from family, friends and even strangers! “I got compliments for my eyes and lashes wherever I went and that helps make it worth to me.”

We seriously love that Paroma now feels like her eyes are more of a focal point and that they were literally “catching” other’s eyes, too!

LASHING EFFECTS

Since getting lash extensions, Paroma has felt even more inspired to try something new, set new goals and step outside of her comfort zone. Having lashes has helped her work towards those extra goals she has, both large and small!

Recently, Paroma took a step to do something for herself and be a part of a movement to empower women. How awesome is that?!

In her day-to-day life, she told us she’s been mindful to look to the women in her life for inspiration for encouragement in her own journey as a woman and working mom.

“I look to my mother as a role model. It’s impressive how she managed outside work and took care of us. I learn from her alot for my day to day activities.” Work, motherhood and just life in general is a lot to juggle for any woman, but thanks to the women around her plus her new lash life, Paroma can conquer it all!


When we planned this photoshoot, we definitely wanted to get gorgeous images of our lashes. But, just as important to us, we wanted to witness our guests’ lash transformations in all their uniqueness. It was our goal to capture the true beauty of each woman and how “beautiful” comes in all different ages, looks, shapes and styles. We are so thankful for Paroma and all of our stunning lash models for helping us do just that.

Stay tuned over the coming months as we share more of the wonder women behind our shoot…and how they’re living their best lives with LASHES!
