The Magic of Memberships: Your Look, Your Choice

Drum roll, please…brand-new Lash Lounge memberships are here! Keep your lash line full, savings in your pocket and a fearless, fresh appearance with 3 new custom options, built to match your lash look!

REGULAR REFILLS FOR CONSISTENT, FLAWLESS FULLNESS

Did you know that most people shed 20% of their natural lashes every 2 weeks? If you have lash extensions, this means that when your natural lashes fall out, the lash extensions attached to them will fall out with them. Over the course of 10 weeks, your lashes will complete their full shedding cycle; in other words, you’ll be back with an empty slate of extension-less lashes.

To keep your lashes “always on,” it’s essential to come into a Lash Lounge near you for regular biweekly refills. If you don’t, as your natural lashes shed, you’ll be left with a spotty lash line; gaps will start to appear between your natural lashes with extensions and those without.

Visit your stylist once every 2 weeks to keep your lashes looking flawless—as good as the day you got them! A Lash Lounge membership makes it a breeze!

All memberships include:

  • Members-only discounted pricing on 2 refills per month with a stylist
  • 10% off additional services, add-ons and upgrades
  • 10% off all products

Memberships Mean Maintenance

Life. It’s one heck of a ride. It keeps you SO busy. Sometimes, it feels like it’s impossible to fit one more thing in.

But, at The Lash Lounge, lash upkeep is easy-peasy since our memberships fit your budget and your schedule!

With membership, get those appointments locked in every 2 weeks. You’ll prioritize that much deserved “me time” in between the rest of the to-dos on your trusted calendar. You’ll stay looking and feeling your best and, when life gets stressful, you will have that regular relaxation to look forward to!

A CUSTOM LASH LOOK, A CUSTOM MEMBERSHIP

We are not a “one size fits all” lash salon. No guest is alike, so there’s no reason your lashes should be either! That’s why, when we developed these memberships, we built them with you in mind. You can choose the membership that best matches your lash look!

3 Membership Options

We have 3 different memberships to choose from. Each has the same benefits but is built to maintain your chosen lash look by application method:

Classic Membership:

This membership option is just like its name: classic! If you love classic lashes, at every refill, we’ll perfect your vibrant, natural lash look by attaching 1 lash extension to your natural eyelash using our classic application method. The result? A custom look that will never go out of style!

Hybrid Membership:

We love a dynamic duo here at The Lash Lounge. That’s just what the Hybrid membership is all about. If you love hybrid lashes, at every refill, we’ll give you the perfect blend of texture and fluffy fullness by combining our classic and volume application methods to complete your lash look.

Volume Membership:

For this fab, final membership option, at every refill, we’ll use the volume application method; we’ll attach a custom, handmade fan of 2+ eyelash extensions to your natural lash to give you a full, voluminous lash look.

The Breakdown: Membership Benefits

Now that we’ve got a good handle on the 3 Lash Lounge membership options, let’s dig into the benefits:

2 Monthly Lash Refills at Members-Only Low Prices!

Keeping up with refills will be easier than ever with the 2 refills per month included in your membership. That means you’ll never have to fret about trying to squeeze in that last-minute refill appointment and your lash line will stay full and picture-perfect all. the. time.
Plus, as a valued member, you’ll save at least $20 per month off the refill rack rate!

Silk or Mink: Choosing Your Lash Type

Made out of a premium synthetic material, our lash types provide a natural feel that will give you a safe, long-lasting look for your eyelashes. You can work with your stylist to determine which type is best for you and choose silk or mink. Silk will give you a semi-matte satin finish which provides a vivid appearance and mink offers a semi-gloss look which gives a fluffed and feathery look. Just see the examples!  And when you’re a member, you get to select one of these beautiful options at no additional charge. Just another membership perk we love!

A Discount on Products and Services

Products are an important part of any beauty routine—especially the ones for your lashes. From lash extension-friendly cleansers to makeup removers, mascaras, sealants and more, you will enjoy 10% off of all products and all additional services, add-ons and upgrades!

3 Beauty Routine Hacks to Keep Your Lash Extensions…

Lash extensions—they’re a way of life! To keep them fuller, longer, we all know a Lash Lounge membership is a must-have. But, in between appointments, what can you do to keep them in tip-top shape?

Aside from keeping them clean and keeping up with those routine refill appointments, there are some simple things you can do to keep that lash line full, healthy and retained. Sure, you may have to train yourself a bit to change your ways, but it’s a new year. What better time to make a change?

We sat down with our corporate stylist trainer, Shelley, to serve up a whole new batch of lash care wisdom:

1. Rubbing and Itching: Proper Method with Lash Extensions

Do you find yourself rubbing your eyes constantly? Or maybe a pesky itch you just have to scratch? Whatever it is, we understand! But with lash extensions, extensive rubbing can cause them to fall off prematurely.

We know you don’t want to lose any of those beloved lashes or that fabulous fullness, so if you must get to that itch, here are a couple simple tricks to try:

  • Refrain from rubbing your full eye and lash line and, instead, slightly rub your eyelid in a soft, circular motion to alleviate that aggravating itch.
  • Grab that handy lash wand and give your lashes a gentle brush until the itch is gone.

2. Heat: Avoiding a “Hot Mess” Mishap

Little-known fact: heat + lash extensions = bad news. Always pay attention to how close you’re getting your lash extensions (and yes, even your natural lashes) to any kind of heat source. Your lashes can get singed, end up looking clumpy and misshapen and the high heat can even cause your synthetic eyelash extensions to melt—yikes!

What immediately comes to mind? You got it: the hairdryer.

We get it; blow-drying is a must for most of our guests. If you swear by a good blowout, implementing the following two things each time will keep your lashes heat- and harm-free:

  • Put the dryer on a low heat setting. Yes, we know it might take a little longer, but it will be better for your lashes and even your hair, too!
  • Flip your head upside-down and dry. This will keep the heat that’s blowing directly onto your face and eyes to a minimum.

3. Moisturizing: Acing the Application

We are all about skincare here at The Lash Lounge; we love being good to our skin as much as we adore our lashes! However, we know that many moisturizing creams contain no-no ingredients like oil, which is not safe to apply near the eye area or lash line because it can break down the lash extension adhesive.

If you simply can’t give up that favorite oil- or alcohol-based serum or cream, there are ways to apply them a little differently to steer clear of your beloved lash extensions.

See Shelley briefly showcase her own moisturizing routine and demonstrate where and how she places her favorite skincare products.

Need a little recap?

  • Be strategic about where you place creams and moisturizers; do not messily rub all over your face and eyes.
  • Gently apply and rub into certain areas, even under the eye. Just be sure to avoid the eyelid entirely since the product can make its way down to your lash line, breaking the bond of the lash adhesive and the extension.

Studies have shown that two weeks of repetitive actions can turn into a habit. So, try tackling that itch differently, change up your blow-drying routine or implement this new moisturizing method for two weeks straight. You’ll have a new-and-improved routine in no time!

Tips & Tricks

Prioritizing Self-Care for YOU (and Your Lashes) in 2020

As we prepare to say so long to 2019 and start a fresh new year, don’t let you or your lashes go by the wayside. Here are some things to try on for size so you can prioritize self-care, feel on top of the world and be ready to tackle anything and everything 2020 may bring!

NOW IS THE TIME FOR THE “NEW YOU”

It’s easy to start the new year with new goals, but are YOU one of them? Take the plunge right out of the gate. Try one of the many things you have filed away under “one day” today!

  • Get that cute, maintenance-free haircut you’ve stewed over in 2019.
  • Sign up for that fresh meal delivery service to make dinner prep easier. (Sure, it may be a bit pricey, but sometimes splurging on something that makes life a little easier is SO worth it!)
  • Show up for that yoga class your friend is always inviting you to.
  • Make that appointment at The Lash Lounge for a flawless full set of lash extensions you’ve seen all of your friends rock this year.

You will be in awe when you notice how empowered you feel when you finally take a chance on YOU!

A NEW TAKE ON OLD ROUTINES

At times, all we need for a refreshing boost is to change things up a bit. Whether personally or professionally, edit your routine to get a new lease on life in 2020.

Change Up the Usual

It may sound silly, but even the smallest change can give you leave you exhilarated!

  • Calling all coffee lovers! Treat yourself to that $5 cup of joe once a week instead of the stale office coffee you endure each day. That work to-do list just might get tackled a little faster thanks to that better caffeine boost!
  • Take another route to work that’s perhaps a bit more scenic and visually inspiring as you start your day. It’s incredible how much a change of scenery can make you feel rejuvenated!
  • Toss in the towel when it comes to those boring or worn-out wardrobe staples and take advantage of New Year’s Day deals and steals. (It’ll be time to put those gift cards you’ve rack up over the holidays to good use!) Purchase some fresh threads that’ll give your look and overall confidence a much-needed makeover!

Say Goodbye to The Basic Beauty Grind

If you’re tired of that time-sucking, step-by-step beauty routine without stellar results, it’s time to prioritize a new lease on your beauty life and practice some self-care. The best way to do that is to transform your lashes!

Lash Extensions

From classic to volume to hybrid, we have a variety of customizable application methods and lash looks for anyone and everyone! Each option will create a new look that’s all your own.

The best part? The need to wear a full face of makeup will be totally optional since those new lux lashes will give your eyes a pretty pop that will completely refresh your look. You’ll also swoon over the time you will save since your daily makeup routine will be at a minimum.

Lash Lift

If you’re ready to toss that uncomfortable curling tool in the trash and give your flat or straight lashes a new and improved look, then you’re ready for a life-changing lash lift! Alongside your stylist, you’ll determine whether you’d like a gradual or strong curl—we can do both!

You’ll love that a lash lift lasts MUCH longer than swipes of mascara or a squeeze from that pesky curling tool. We’re talking 6 to 8 weeks longer! Hooray for another simplified beauty routine option, plus an updated look to love!

Lash Tint

From selecting the best color for your lashes to suggesting a shade that complements both your skin tone and natural lovely locks, our trained stylists will help you customize a lash tint service. The combination of the application itself and the expertise of your stylist will offer you riveting eyelash tinting results.

So, are you finally ready to turn some heads in 2020 and enjoy that new streamlined beauty routine? Conveniently select a salon near you, schedule an appointment online and be on your way to your new and improved life…or should we say “lash life”?

REFLECT ON WHAT REALLY MATTERS

To be truly be kind to yourself, it’s so important to reflect on how you spend your time—and who you spend it with. Is it what matters most?

  • Do you find yourself missing out on those book club nights with the girls ’cause life just seems too busy? What can you do to make it happen? Have the fam order pizza? Delegate the homework duties to your other half? Whatever it is, there’s almost always a way to make things work.
  • Will it kill you if you push the laundry a day and instead go to The Lash Lounge to get your lashes and brows done? You can’t undervalue a lash nap!

You will feel even more productive and rejuvenated if you give yourself time, well, to yourself. Sure, the laundry will still be there, but your body, mind and soul will be better equipped to tackle the task!


We make a lot of priorities as we step into a new year. This year, it’s time for #1 on that list to be YOU!

2 Custom Eyebrow Services for a Refreshing New Look

If you’ve been putting your brows on the backburner, now is the time to bring them back to life! See the two services that will not only give you that much-needed brow transformation, but also will do wonders for your overall look.

EYEBROW SERVICES

Whether they need to be shaped and cleaned up or you need a more defined look, The Lash Lounge can transform those barely-there brows into a “wow” moment. From holiday parties to special events to, heck, work tomorrow, you’ll completely crush all of them with your fresh new look!

Defined Brow Threading

Here at The Lash Lounge, we can contour and customize your look with eyebrow threading. To emphasize your natural features, we specialize in constructing defined brow lines. Just check out the results on this guest from The Lash Lounge Shrewsbury – Lakeway Commons!

Are you a fellow “over-tweezer” from back in the day? You’re not alone. But thanks to our threading process, we’re able to clean up those pesky stray hairs, then perfect the edges of your eyebrows by removing just enough.

Got some “peach fuzz” or annoying stubble areas that drives you nuts? We feel you! Kiss the tweezing, waxing, at-home messes, mishaps and chemicals goodbye and let us do the work!

See what our corporate trainer, Shelley, recently shared about this life-changing service, plus the other service you should combine with it for an even more dynamic brow transformation.

Precise Brow Tinting*

If you’re ready to take the plunge and give your lackluster brows that beautiful, bold boost they’ve been begging for, then an eyebrow tint is calling your name!

This service gives you a pretty pop of color that lasts 4 weeks, which is a full month of glorious, maintenance-free brows! You’ll swoon over your new color boost and bountiful brows. Plus—total game changer here—go makeup-free more often!

Our Perfected Tinting Process

Wondering about the process? With tinting, it’s a team effort here at The Lash Lounge. First, our professional stylists will work with you to determine the right shape for your new brows, then help you select a shade that complements your lovely locks and your skin tone. Our stylists combine their training, expertise and industry-leading products to clean up your brows and give you a look you’ll fall in love with.

Unlike some other brow tinting services out there, our dyes are 100% safe and definitely tried and true here at The Lash Lounge! We also use a low-volume developer to cut down on any risk of tingling or burning that can sometimes be associated with tinting services. Our stylists must complete an extensive program to perfect dye application and use every precaution to keep your brow area safe during the process. You can always rest assured that your beauty and health are in the best hands.

Beautiful Benefits + Results

What’s the best part about our brow services? Of course, your beautiful new arches! But you’ll also be thrilled with your new ability to get up and go without your daily brow makeup.

Eyebrow threading is a quick way to get a precise look without the extra effort, while brow tinting will give you a darker, fuller appearance. Whether you combine these two services (like you see pictured here on a guest from The Lash Lounge Houston – Memorial Green) or go with one eyebrow service alone, the results will leave you with a captivating new look. You’ll also be able to say so long to those brow pencils you’ve collected over the years—hooray!
