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!

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!

A Day in the Lash Life: Modern Mom, Michelle

We’re diving into another inside look into the day and the (lash) life of a real Lash Lounge woman, Michelle from Modern Mom Life. See how this busy mother enjoys the convenience of lash extensions and how she’s taken them with her during all of her summer adventures!

Living Life With Lashes: An Interview With Modern Mom, Michelle

LL: When did you first fall in love with lash extensions and which Lash Lounge location do you currently visit?
MM: I started visiting the Frisco – Starwood location in the spring and that’s when my love affair with lashes began.

LL: Which service is hands-down your favorite?
MM: I have tried many of the services, but my answer is without a doubt hybrid and volume lash extensions!

LL: Has having lash extensions simplified your beauty routine? If so, please dish out those lash details for us!
MM: Lash extensions have absolutely simplified my daily beauty routine! Before I got hooked, I was applying several coats of mascara a day, but not anymore! I no longer wear mascara (nor do I need to—hooray!!), so that saves me precious time. I also love that, even when I don’t wear eye makeup, my lash extensions make my eyes appear more awake and dramatic. What woman doesn’t want that?!? I literally get SO many compliments and questions about my lashes from my friends, it’s amazing!

LL: What is it about having lash extensions during the summer that has been particularly life-changing?
MM: With kids at home and always being on the go, I don’t have as much time to apply eye makeup and create those dramatic looks I love so much. Now that I have lash extensions, I’m hooked on the simplicity of walking out the door without mascara or eyeliner, yet I feel like my eyes still look fabulous.

LL: What activities have you (and your lashes) enjoyed this summer?
MM: My kiddos and I have gone to the beach and also enjoyed many sunny days at the pool. My lash extensions don’t get in the way of me experiencing summer fun with my family. Like I mentioned, they have totally simplified my beauty routine!

LL: Does this mean you’ve gotten to enjoy some time in the water? If yes, please give us the scoop on how swimming with lash extensions has been for you.
MM: Oh yes, I have gone swimming A LOT this summer. Once I’m out of the water for the day, I make sure I brush my lashes with my lash wand once they are dry to make them appear full and fluffy again.*

*We recommend following your recommended aftercare routine when hopping out of the water, including a wash and a brushing, like Michelle does! A lash sealant keeps your lashes in place for longer, so is always good prep, too!

LL: From vacations to staycations to just simple fun, what has been your summer highlight?
MM: Our family went to Orange Beach, Ala. with my best friends and their families. It’s a yearly tradition to ensure we stay in touch with them since our lives have gotten so busy with growing families. We spent a week at the beach soaking up the sun and waves. It was a great way to kick off the season!

LL: Thank you for sharing your summer lash journey with us, Michelle! Is there anything else you’d like to add about your lashes and experience at The Lash Lounge?
MM: Overall, I LOVE that my lashes actually stay put! Your stylists are top-notch and, trust me, I know! I have received lash extension services elsewhere and they did not last. Not even just after a few days. I am so very pleased with the service and quality I have found at The Lash Lounge!


Hearing how much a guest loves her lashes is music to our ears, and so is hearing Michelle enjoyed ALL of her usual summer activities and took her lashes with her every “splash” of the way!
