5 Ways to Celebrate Love + Lashes Before AND…

We’re all about celebrating Valentine’s Day. But why limit the love fest to just one day?! We’re celebrating LOVE…all. month. long. So, yeah, dinner and a movie with your sweetie might be one way to celebrate the love in your life. But don’t discredit all the other things that make you swoon!

Here are 5 alternative ideas to do what you love with who you love most this February, lashes included.

1. “Mane” Squeeze, Please!

How long has it been? You know, since treating yourself to one of your favorite things ever? You’ve been dreaming of it—that feeling when, staring back at you in the mirror are your flowy, luscious locks. Don’t deny yourself any longer; book that appointment!

If that special someone insists on showering you with affection, then let them get you a gift card for that beautiful and bouncy blowout you love and, most importantly, the “me time” you deserve!

2. Dare to Dance!

Know that courageous confidence boost you get when you leave your lash refill appointment? Well, don’t let that feeling stop there.

 

If dance classes have been calling your name, then tango, swing or jazz your way into some fun on your feet!

Want company? Ask your main squeeze or best gal pal if they’re open to checking out some local dance studios together. Check and see if they have any Valentine’s Day events or specials to save extra $$.

3. Love + Lashes

There are a MILLION reasons you love him, but let’s be honest…his gift-giving could use a little work. Let him know he can make this Valentine’s Day super simple by purchasing a Lash Lounge gift card. Whether it’s a voluminous, new lash line you’re after or bold, new brows, you can put this gift card to use however your heart desires.

Psst…he’ll really get bonus points since, for the WHOLE month of February, first-time lashers can snag a FULL SET of classic natural lashes with a stylist for just $99 (at participating salons). All you have to do is give him the helpful hint!

4. Savor the Flavors

Love an excuse to indulge in your favorite eats and treats? So do we! That’s why we’re all about setting up a fun night with your favorite folks and food.

Whether it’s dinner for two, sitting down with the fam, takeout with your besties or sitting down solo to binge-watch Netflix, hit up your favorite restaurants or enjoy a mouth-watering mix of your grocery store front-runners this month. Good food plus great company—now that’s a recipe for February fun!

New Year, New Milestone: Celebrating Our 100th Salon

We’re taking on the new year with new, even bigger, dreams now that we’ve celebrated our 100th salon opening. That’s right: ONE HUNDRED!

It was a lot of hard work, but definitely no miracle getting here; it was the result of a pledge to serve YOU and your lash transformations. Your humbling loyalty, cheers and support have paved the way for this epic moment. So, please, raise your glasses and celebrate with us!

THE GRAND OPENING OF THE 100th LASH LOUNGE SALON

Each and every Lash Lounge salon took part in helping us reach this magical milestone. The lucky 100th justhappened to be The Lash Lounge New Orleans – Mid City. And their grand opening celebration didn’t disappoint! What a party to celebrate 1-0-0!

Hours before the event, owners Jamie Larson and Jeremie Ertle were ready. The salon was draped and dazzled in vibrant Lash Lounge colors. Invites were out, gift bags staged, tables of food beautifully arranged, while a jazz trio sang out classic New Orleans tunes. When guests arrived, there were smiles for miles!

The true “winning” moment was when the NFL’s record-setting New Orleans Saints quarterback, Drew Brees, stopped by to surprise and congratulate Jamie and Jeremie. Drew is a partner and board member at Franworth, a franchise-focused growth equity firm and partner of The Lash Lounge.

LASHING IT FORWARD WITH LASH LOUNGE LEADERSHIP

Also there to celebrate the momentous milestone for The Lash Lounge franchise were founder and CIO, Anna Phillips, and CEO, Meg Roberts. Both have a great passion and unbreakable commitment to the services each salon provides, each and every guest, team member and, of course, our FANTASTIC franchisees.

A Passion (Business) Project

Almost 15 years ago, our founder and trailblazer, Anna Phillips, opened the first Lash Lounge. She had a passion for lashes and their beautiful ability to simplify her guests’ daily beauty routines and make them feel like the most confident versions of themselves. That very passion has guided and guarded The Lash Lounge’s purpose as we’ve grown.

More than 10 years, 100 salons, 90,000 guests, 10,000 members and hundreds of expert stylists, franchisees and salon teams later, her passion and vision remain the lifeblood of our organization.

A Continued Commitment to Lashes, Our Craft and Our Guests

Like Anna, as we grow, CEO Meg Roberts shares a continued commitment to lash art, craft and YOU!

At the end of the day, we care. We’ve got the safe and sanitary lash products and services you crave. And we’ve got specialized stylists who will continue to work with you to create the customized lash looks you can’t wait to take to the town!

A Real Lash Lounge Superhero, Featuring Julia

As we get ready to say so long to 2019 and hello to the new year, one thing is certain: It was an honor to work with the incredible women from our “Lash Look” photoshoot this year! And it didn’t stop there; thanks to this series, we get a front-row seat to how they’re putting their new lash looks to work as they get even more comfortable with the strong, independent women they truly are.

Help us round out the year with one last spotlight on our lovely model Julia, who received a lash lift and tint…plus a new dash of confidence!

A LOOK BACK: DAYS WITH DRAB LASHES AND BROWS

As a working mom with a full schedule and passion for bringing joy to others, Julia is no stranger to the hustle and bustle of a busy life. Prior to answering our “Lash Look” model call, Julia had never had a lash or brow service done before—which was a shame because she always had this nagging feeling her eyes looked invisible under her glasses.
She hated it, but since her daughter was getting ready to start kindergarten, it’s not like she had extra time in the morning to spend on makeup.

 A BREATH OF FRESH AIR WITH NEW LASHES AND BROWS

When she got to the photoshoot, Julia was paired with our fabulous Lash Lounge training manager, Jill. The two spent some time chatting about the look Julia was going for while Jill assessed her natural features and hair color. The dynamic duo of a lash and brow tint plus a lash lift were just the services Julia needed for a timeless low-maintenance transformation.

The tinting of her eyebrows and lashes would give her natural, light-colored hairs that extra pop. For the lift, Julia was looking for a strong, tight curl to give her that refreshing, effortless oomph without the hassle of using a lash curler or mounds of mascara.

THAT “FIRST LOOK” MOMENT

Once the tinting and lift applications were complete, it was time for Jill to hand the mirror over to Julia so she could see her new look. “I love that it looks natural but enhanced!”

A PERFECTED LOOK FIT FOR A PRINCESS (AND SUPERHERO!)

Whether our guests are focused on their families, career or acts of empowering others, we love to hear and tell their stories!

That’s definitely the case for Julia, who works as a volunteer. “I am a princess and superhero character performer for children’s charity events. I volunteer with children who have medical needs or are in disadvantaged situations to bring them happiness!”


Julia’s incredible work keeps her busy; sometimes, with very little notice, she needs to be out the door to head to her rewarding role. Her new lash and brow look saves her so much time. “I feel ready to go even without putting on a full face of makeup!”

A WINNING LOOK

And just when we thought we knew the ins and outs of Julia, she went and threw a beautiful curveball at us! “I competed in a natural pageant two weeks after getting my lashes and brows done. The pageant required a ‘fresh natural’ look with nothing fake. My lash tint and lift was perfect! I was confident in my appearance without having to worry about how my eyes would stand out under the stage lights. I won the title for my age division and am now the 2019 Mrs. Texas Choice!”
Wow! Hear, hear to you, Julia!

__________________________

When the ideas and visions behind this Lash Lounge photoshoot began earlier this year, it was of course our goal to get beautiful photos of our eyelashes and eyebrows. But what was really special was the opportunity to meet our guests and get a front-row seat to their transformations.
We can’t wait to share more inspiring stories and results with you in 2020, so stay tuned for more of the superhero women behind our shoot. Miss the two we already shared? Don’t worry, you can still meet Paroma and Denise on our blog.

Oh—and if you’re ready to jumpstart your own fresh new look for the new year, take a look at our services (which may vary by location) and find a salon near you!

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!

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!

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

1. WEAR PINK

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.

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.

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!

Take a look at the lovely Denise and her custom lash look:

C Curl Lash Extensions

Curl: C Curl • Application Method: Classic • Level: Natural • Type: Silk

Now for Sarah and her drop-dead gorgeous custom lashes:

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!
