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!

The Gift of Effortless Beauty During Holiday Travel

It’s here. The holiday travel madness is in full swing. Hitting the road and trekking on a long trip? Have a flight to catch at dawn? Whenever and wherever your travels may take you this holiday season, make sure your lashes and brows are on point thanks to services at The Lash Lounge. Because where there are flawless lashes, there’s a simplified beauty routine behind them! Talk about a huge lifesaver!

JET LAG-FREE LASHES + BROWS

We all know how it is after a long day of traveling. We’re washed out, we looked disheveled and, quite frankly, most of us are not at our best. But this doesn’t have to be you this year! You can arrive looking refreshed and better than ever!

Thanks to The Lash Lounge, travel triumphantly with smudge- and mascara-free eyes. The days of worrying about having a half eyebrow look cause your brow pencil wore off during your in-flight snooze, are over! Instead, select a service, make an appointment at a salon near you and let your lashes and brows dazzle during all the hustle and bustle.

Eyelash Lift and Tint

To give your flat or straight lashes a new lease on life, say hello to a lash lift!

With this service, you’ll be delighted to toss that pesky lash curler out of your travel bag and, instead, enjoy a stunning, natural-looking lash curl. But, wait! It gets even better! An eyelash lift will last 6 to 8 weeks until it’s time to make an appointment at your favorite Lash Lounge salon to keep that lift locked in place.

Got light-colored natural hairs and longing for even more oomph to your lifted lashes? Get your eyelashes tinted! That extra color pop will make your lashes look EVEN more lustrous and won’t fade away while you’re in transit. Just be sure to schedule an appointment to come in every 4 weeks to keep that captivating color in check.

Eyelash Extensions

We know you want to fine-tune that fashionable airport look, but don’t stress out or run late because you spent too much time trying to get that flimsy lash strip in place. And don’t be that gal on the plane who tries to apply mascara in the air only to land with smudged racoon eyes (Not cute, ladies!).

Go with lash extensions instead! From classic, volume or hybrid, we have a variety of detailed, customizable applications to create a look all your own. You’ll not only be able to travel in style, but your hassle-free, new refreshing look will put you at ease.

 

Eyebrow Tinting

Tired of having to worry about making sure your barely-there brows stay filled in all day while you board your flights? We feel you, which is why it’s time to get an eyebrow tint to lock in that bold yet natural brow look.

Our stylist will work with you to select, then customize a color that complements not just your authentic hair color, but also your skin tone. You’ll be blown away when you see the sharper shade and thicker brow line as you travel. It’s built-in beauty!

A REFRESHED LOOK!

One of the many benefits of all of the services we’ve mentioned is that our guests instantly get a brighter, refreshed look to their face.

You won’t have to dread the annual moment when your dad is ready to take family photos AS SOON as you arrive, and you won’t have to waste that precious family time trying to use one of those fine-tuning face apps to make yourself look like your best.

Instead, those tired, droopy eyes will be disguised thanks to your restored lash and brow look!

PERKS OF PACKING LIGHT

When our guests see just how incredible their new, effortless look really is, they often find that they don’t even need to wear much makeup at all!

So, lighten your load as you pack because makeup is optional (woohoo!!!). Instead, throw your favorite sweatshirt or sassy shoes in your bag. After all, you’ve got the space!


Whether you’re globetrotting for a holiday abroad or you’re taking a quick trip to see the fam, do yourself a favor this year and select a service that will make life a little easier for you. After all, ’tis the season to feel beautiful, confident and empowered!

And, just think, that “favorite” aunt of yours who’s known for critiquing everyone from head to toe (insert eye roll) will be speechless when she sees just how fresh and fabulous you look after your long journey.

Oh—and don’t dare miss out on your routine appointment while you’re away from your Lash Lounge home salon! Find a location wherever you’re at, so you can keep those lashes and brows in tip-top shape!

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

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 Does 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!

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!*

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!

Best Beauty Looks from the AMA’s (And How You…

Taylor’s Look:

  • Metallic eye shadow

  • A soft nude lip

Get Her Look:

  • For the eye shadow, we love the sultry shadow palette from Sephora which includes a silver metallic shade like Taylor wore, plus 13 more shades.

  • For the lashes, a full set of Volume Lash Extensions will have your lashes looking just like Taylor’s!

Ciara’s Look:

  • Nude glossed lips

Get Her Look:

  • Bobbi Brown’s shimmer wash eye shadow in ‘champagne’ is the perfect shade to highlight and illuminate the eyes like we see on Ciara.

Vanessa’s Look:

  • Nude matte lip
  • Full, flared lashes
  • Arched brows

  • To get your brows looking like Vanessa’s, get them threaded. Eyebrow threading is an innovative option for brow shaping and hair removal. It also has many benefits over waxing and plucking and can give you this same sexy arched look.

  • Super dark, warm smokey eyes
  • Volume lashes

  • Brown shades are all the rage this season and you can get this same edgy yet feminine look on your lips with Yves Saint Laurent’s ROUGE PUR COUTURE Lipstick with shade 53 Beige Promenade from Sephora. Continue the brown tones on the eyes by using a bronze shade like MAC’s Charcoal Brown eye shadow.
  • A full lash line on the top AND bottom can be achieved by getting Lash Extensions -and yes, you can even get lash extensions on your lower lid. This will open up your eyes and brighten your face even more than just having lash extensions on the top!
  • For the same bold brow look as Dua, get a simple brow tint. This service is ideal for those who want to darken their brows or simply give them a bolder look. And it also saves you the hassle of filling in your brows – which is a huge time saver! (Note: Lash tinting is available at many Lash Lounge locations, but not in the following states: New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts or California.)
