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

Guest + Stylist Comfort: Proper Positioning for an Exceptional…

While working our lash and brow magic, we want everyone to feel relaxed and cared for each and every time. See the steps we take to ensure each guest and stylist (yep, their comfort is important, too!) is positioned properly, as well as some examples from one of our corporate training experts, Shelley.

HEAD + NECK SUPPORT FOR ALL!

At the end of the day, comfort for everyone is the name of our lash game. We not only want to make sure our guests are cozy and relaxed (hello, lash naps!), but we also want to make sure our stylists are comfortable, too. This is super important; a comfy stylist is one who can lash at their highest potential.

Guest Comfort

To provide you with the best possible comfort for your neck, shoulders and back, we place a special pillow under your neck area to give you that much needed head support while you’re lying down. If at any time the neck pillow needs to be repositioned, always let your stylist know!

Stylist Comfort

Being able to comfortably reach a guest’s lashes and brows without slouching or hunching over is very important for our stylists’ health and their ability to provide you with your custom service.

That’s a big part of why we get you settled in first. If you’re not positioned just right, then your stylist might try and compensate with her own posture, which could result in tightness or soreness in their back and shoulders.

OUR BUDDY, THE BOLSTER

One of the first steps we take when you lie down on our plush spa bed is to set you up with a bolster under your legs; this gets you in the perfect position to relax!

Comfort Accommodations— Oh, the Possibilities!

Because we know not all guests are built alike, we have developed special accommodations for guests with unique needs. For guests with back issues or those who are pregnant, we have a couple tricks up our sleeves.

Side Positioning

Something we’ve found to be super effective is transitioning the guest from lying on their back to their side. We’ll place one bolster behind their back for extra support and the other bolster either along their torso area or between their knees.

Don’t worry—we’ll always make sure their neck is comfortable and their head is as straight as possible, so the stylist can reach them properly. Good thinking! 😉

See how Shelley demonstrates this type of side positioning in the video below.


From our stylists to our beloved guests, we want everyone to feel as comfortable as possible. Which reminds us, learn about the 6 Ways to Enhance Your Lash Lounge Experience and start counting down the time ‘til you get to sink into that relaxing spa bed for your favorite service!

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 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!

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!
