5 Unique Things To Do With Your Gal Pals

August 4th is National Friendship Day and whether it’s a day at the spa or an adventurous excursion, call your besties, get your calendars out and set some time aside to make some memories!

1. Fan Girl Fun

Singing at the top of your lungs and dancing in your seat is the perfect way to have some fun with your friends! See what concerts are coming to your area or plan ahead and take a trip to go see that favorite boy band that you may or may not still be dreaming about after all these years. (Hello, Backstreet Boys!)

2. Race for Adventure

No one gives you that extra boost of confidence to step outside your comfort zone like your girlfriends. Plan something adventurous for your group like zip lining, going up in a hot air balloon (imagine those breathtaking views!), going on a hike, or truly take the plunge and go skydiving!

Doing something as a group that takes a bit of courage will do wonders for the bond you all share and will also make each of you feel more empowered than ever before!

3. Lash Out

Every lady needs to ‘lash out’ at times, which is why scheduling appointments for you and your gal pals at The Lash Lounge is a must! When planned in advance, many of our salons welcome groups to come in, enjoy a spa like experience, relax and receive a lash or brow service. Each of you will feel rejuvenated, refreshed and overjoyed when seeing everyone’s stunning transformations.

Don’t stop there! Plan a girls night out so you and your tribe can hit the town with your new, flawless lashes! We’re quite certain you all will be the talk of the town after everyone sees those flawless photos on Instagram.

4. A Recipe for Fun

Are there some foodies in your friend group or some who need a little extra help in the kitchen? If so, sign everyone up for a cooking class! There are a number of places that offer fun classes, and some chefs in certain areas will even come to your own home. However you plan to do it, enjoy creating some new recipes with your pals…and don’t forget the wine!

5. Chick Flick Fling

When does life allow you to relax with your bff’s and binge watch all of those epic chick flicks or sitcoms you all know and love? (Raise your hand if a Friends marathon instantly popped into your mind!) Pencil in some time at someone’s house or chip in on a suite at a hip hotel and make it a day of watching your favorite flicks…with room service, of course!

Want to take it up a notch? Suggest that the group get matching pj’s and bring loads of your favorite sweet treats. After you all indulge, relax and roar with laughter, we bet y’all will be planning your next chick flick fling before this one even ends!


Whether for a few hours or a full week, time with friends is good for the soul and we hope you’re now inspired to get some fun with the girls on the books!

Tips & Tricks

6 Ways to Enhance Your Lash Lounge Experience

It’s your favorite day, also known as lash refill day! Before you start counting down the time till you get to sink into that relaxing spa bed, take note of some ways you can enhance your anticipated bi-weekly trip to The Lash Lounge.

1. TAKE IN THE TUNES

Love listening to music to unwind? You’re in luck! Most of our salons offer earbuds or headphones so you can listen to your favorite songs while we work our lash and brow magic.

Got your own ear gear? Bring it with you! Just make sure your headphones aren’t too large; wouldn’t want you to be uncomfortable or potentially block your stylist’s lashing path during your application. Other than that, pick that playlist!

2. DON’T BE RUSHED

You. are. busy. Finding the “perfect” time to set appointments is tough! But if you’re cutting it close leaving work, picking up the kids or have to head to a meeting after your service, that’s a recipe for stress. We definitely don’t want you feeling rushed during your appointment! This is your “me time”!

If possible, try to choose an appointment time that will keep the stress level low and allow you to place that to-do list (and all other worries) on the back-burner—even if it’s just for an hour or two!

3. COOL IT ON THE CAFFEINE

Most of us thrive off of that extra kick caffeine gives us throughout the day. But here’s the deal: Drinking caffeine all day or right before your appointment can make it difficult for you to unwind.

Stillness is the name of our lash game! If you can, we urge you to save your favorite caffeine-charged indulgence for after your appointment.

4. THE MAGIC OF MAINTENANCE

Did you know keeping your lashes fresh and fluffed in between appointments helps you get the most out of your time in the salon. How? If you suffer a maintenance miss this month, your stylist may need to spend extra time caring for your lashes before she can start on your scheduled service. In extreme cases, we may have to add more extensions than usual to bring that lash line back to its original fullness. But that’s totally doable! Just be sure to let us know if you’re running a little thin and we can make sure to book the right amount of time to get your lashes back to beautiful.

The good news is the majority of our guests are lash care legends. Give yourself a pat on the back!

5. POSITION POSSIBILITIES

Generally, our guests lie comfortably on their backs during their appointment, but we know this may not be ideal for everyone. Whether you’re a mommy-to-be or a guest with back issues, our stylists are here to help!

Be sure to let them know about any issues you may have when lying on your back so they can work with you to find a position that allows you to get super comfy and totally relaxed during your service. Along with your lashes, the comfort of our guests is our #1 priority!

6. ASK AWAY

Last but not least, never hesitate to ask your stylist any questions or concerns you may have. If you’re unsure about a product, bring it in with you and share it with your stylist so they can assure you whether it’s safe for your lashes. Don’t take any chances if you’re not 100% sure; that’s what we’re here for!


Aside from making your lashes look oh-so-fabulous, we want you to feel comfortable and cared for each and every time you visit us. Let us work our lash magic and let The Lash Lounge be your home away from home! Looking for a location? Find a salon near you!

A Day in the Lash Life: Teacher + Business…

“See it in our eyes. We are women. We are warriors. Bosses, trailblazers, moms, sisters, daughters—every day, we face the world.”

You may have heard these words before. Maybe you’ve seen them on our salon wall or come across them on social media. These powerful lines were pulled straight from our brand manifesto where we lay it all out on the table: The Lash Lounge exists for you—to fuel the confidence you take with you every day…in whichever roles you play and through all of your accomplishments.

Today, we’re super excited to give you an inside look into the day and the (lash) life of a real-life Lash Lounge woman, Cate Gale.

Cate lives in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Texas and is a regular guest of The Lash Lounge Prosper – Gates of Prosper. Talk about a killer set of lashes, right? But what’s even more impressive is how she puts them to work for her!

Get ready to see how this busy boss lady does it all—and just how The Lash Lounge is helping her simplify her beauty routine and feel rejuvenated and gorgeous along the way!

Living Life With Lashes: An Interview With DFW Teacher, Influencer + Business Owner, Cate Gale

LL: We’d love to hear a little about your profession and your daily routine!
CG: I am a middle school teacher and also a business owner of two online companies. When I’m not working, I am a gym junkie and I also volunteer every week with student ministry programs. Needless to say, I am constantly on the go.

LL: How has getting lash extensions enhanced your busy life?
CG: On days when I don’t want to wear much (or any) makeup, I still feel put-together by having lash extensions. And not only do I feel put together, but I also feel super confident when getting out with little to no makeup on.

LL: Does having lash extensions simplify your daily beauty routine?
CG: Yes, it does! In fact, it has cut down my morning routine by at least 15 minutes.

LL: What does it mean to you to feel and look beautiful while being a boss and working woman at the same time?
CG: That’s a great question!
First off I think that every woman, despite what they do for a living should never feel like they have to sacrifice their confidence or what makes them feel beautiful to also be fulfilled in their career. I fully understand that so many of us are constantly on the go, many working multiple jobs while taking care of loved ones daily. But, self care is not selfish, and in order to function as our highest selves, we need to feel confident, so whatever that may be for someone, lashes, nails, makeup, hair, etc. they need to make that a priority. Feeling super confident raises our vibration that echoes out into the world, and all of that comes back to us tenfold. So when we’re sending out confident vibes, those all come back to us in different ways.

What does that mean to me:
I LOVE all that I do, and I love that having my lashes done when I wake up, allows me to tackle other things and feel confident and beautiful while looking my best. Lashes give me that extra pep in my step knowing that I don’t have to spend an hour on makeup and I can still shine!

LL: What are some other beauty related benefits you are enjoying now that you have lash extensions?
CG: What I enjoy most is that I don’t have to worry about dreaded mascara smudges, especially during allergy season or when I’m feeling a little teary-eyed.

LL: Summer will be here before we know it, which brings us to our next question: What do you think will be the biggest benefit of having extensions during the summer months?
CG: What I’m most looking forward to this summer is being able to go to the pool and not having to worry about my mascara running. Total game-changer!

LL: What do you love most about visiting The Lash Lounge and receiving your service?
CG: The lash naps are amazing, but what I really love most is the guest service. It’s SO great! The staff listens to you and treats you like a princess. I am also obsessed with the atmosphere! I feel like I’m getting the VIP treatment every-single-time.

LL: Lastly, in 3 words, please tell us how you feel after your appointment when you leave The Lash Lounge.
CG: Valued, rejuvenated, and beautiful!


Hearing our valued guests share how our services at The Lash Lounge have simplified their daily routines and given them priceless and empowered feelings of beauty and confidence is music to our ears. Many thanks to Cate for taking time out of her busy schedule to give us an inside look into her lash life!

3 Real Women, Their Lashes and Simplified Beauty Routines

There’s nothing more exciting and rewarding than seeing photos of our guests with smiles on their faces because they adore their lashes. We also love it when we get messages from these real women sharing how the experience and services at The Lash Lounge has transformed not only their look but also their lives. Today we are thrilled to share 3 of these real women and what they’re saying about their lashes and their new simplified, time saving beauty routines!

Amanda Upadhyaya

What Amanda has to say: 

Getting lash extensions from The Lash Lounge last month has made SUCH a huge impact on how fast I can get ready every morning. As the mom of a preschooler, I don’t have much time to spend getting ready before we start our day so it’s so helpful to just be able to throw on some BB cream and head out the door, while still looking completely “put together.” Having lash extensions over the holidays was a game changer, especially since my family and I spent the new year in Park City. Between snow storms and snowball fights with my husband and son, I was one of the only mamas without the wet mascara eyes, makeup stayed intact and my lashes had me still looking fresh and flawless even after being poured down on with snow!

  • Lash Addict from The Lash Lounge Carmel in Carmel, Indiana

What Sydney (AKA Syd) has to say: 

My lash extensions have made my “getting ready” time A LOT quicker! Often, I don’t have to wear mascara at all and when I do, it’s just very little and takes very little time, like 1-2 minutes. It’s nice to not have to invest the time into putting a ton of mascara on yet I  still get the long, full lash look I want!

Grace Liang

What Grace has to say: 

I LOVE my lash extensions from The Lash Lounge! They make me feel like a million bucks and I am addicted to them! During my last refill at The Lash Lounge, I chose even longer lash extensions and I can’t believe what a big  difference they make! Ladies, find a Lash Lounge near you and give yourself the opportunity to not only look good, but feel good, too! And if you live in Michigan, you can visit the Bloomfield location (Coming Soon) or the Rochester Hills location!
