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!

Lash Lift: 6 Beautiful Benefits from Our New System

Like that little extra oomph signature to a lash lift? It’s the x-factor that makes your eyes pop using only the beauty and strength of your natural eyelashes.

If so, we’re THRILLED to announce our new system to perfect those beloved curls. Highly regarded in the beauty industry as one of the best lash lift methods out there, this new process is now available to YOU at The Lash Lounge. Here’s the lowdown.

Goodbye, Lash Curling Tools

If you’ve been using a lash curler for years, it’s time to toss it out! A lash lift from one of our salons will give you that beautiful curl without the hassle of using an uncomfortable tool—no more ouches in your future!

Custom Curl Options

The beauty of a lash lift is the limitless opportunity to give your flat or straight lashes a new lease on life! Before the service begins, your stylist will assess the length of your natural lashes, then chat with you to determine your desired look and whether you want a more gradual or strong curl.

Once you decide, your stylist will select the perfect size silicone rod to give you just the lift your heart (or should we say lashes?) desires.

Longer Lasting

Awesome news: A lash tint lasts MUCH longer than a quick curl from a tool or swipe of mascara each day. We’re talking 6 to 8 weeks longer! Get ready to enjoy a simplified beauty routine, plus a new, refreshed look.

30 Minutes of Bliss

Our new lash lift system takes approximately just 30 minutes. That’s right—we literally shaved your service time in half! So, lay back, relax and grab a quick lash nap before you conquer the rest of your day!

Low Maintenance + Minimal Aftercare

Other Lash Lounge services do require a bit of TLC when it comes to maintenance, but with a lash lift, there’s not much at all you need to do to keep your new lift in check. The only thing that is a must: coming in every 6–8 weeks to refresh that lash lift!

Yeah, we’re looking at you; make your appointment today!

A Look You’ll L.O.V.E.

Our 4-Step Eyelash Extension Customization Process

No client, their eye shape or their natural lashes are the same, which is why here at The Lash Lounge we take our client consultations very seriously. We want to determine a custom lash style to fit you and your life. How, you ask? See below for details on our 4-step eyelash extension customization process.

1. Face Mapping

Our Face Mapping system allows our stylists to determine the client’s eye profile. All eyes fall into 1 of 3 profiles and each eye can even be a different profile. Based on which profile each eye is, indicates which lash design will look the best. Our face mapping system provides a fool-proof, perfect lash design for each eye, every time.

 2. Lash & Curl Type

Our stylists strive to educate our guests on which lash curl is best for them and also which texture, Silk or Mink. We offer 3 different lash curls: C curl, D curl and L+ curl. (Stay tuned for more info coming soon to the blog on the textures and curls.)

3. Longest Length

To determine what the longest lash length is, our stylists consider the following: 1) The length of the natural hair 2) The condition of the natural hair 3) The desired look of the guest. If a guest requests a longer length, the stylist can use a thinner extension or suggest the client upgrade to mink lashes which are lighter in weight and won’t damage the integrity of the natural hair.

4. Application Method & Lash Thickness

The final step to the customization process our stylists conduct is selecting which type of application method the guest prefers (Classic Lashes or Volume Lashes) and which lash thickness will work best with their natural hairs.

After the stylist has completed the 4-step guest consultation, they will then complete the guest’s custom design code. Below is an example of how that design code is determined:

Design: Straight, Upward, Downward
Curl: C, D, L+
Lash Type: Silk or Mink
Length: List the longest lash length selected (i.e. 12mm)
Method: Classic or Volume
Thickness: .06, .07, .10, .15, .18
