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 Look and Life of a Real Lash Lounge…

Drum roll, please! We recently held our very first “Lash Look” photoshoot with real Lash Lounge guests as our models (whoop!, whoop!). Today, we’re overjoyed to share an inside look into the lash life of one of our lovely models, Paroma. See what this music-loving mother has to say about her lash transformation and how she’s applied her new look and confidence to her life. Let’s meet Paroma!

LIFE BEFORE LASHES

As a computer software professional in an office environment, it has always been important to Paroma to put her best foot forward each day; and that includes looking and feeling put together. Before answering our “Lash Look” model call, Paroma (who is also mom to a darling 5-year-old little boy) had never given lash extensions a go. And when it came to her daily beauty routine, she was no stranger to spending extra time each morning with those dreaded tasks of applying mascara and working to get her eyeliner on just right.

A CUSTOM LASH LOOK, PLUS THAT MIRROR MOMENT!

When the day finally arrived for Paroma to join us at our corporate training center in Southlake, Texas, the lash anticipation was high and excitement in the air! First, Paroma sat down with one of our uber talented corporate training stylists, Shelley, to chat about her desired lash look. Everything from her eye shape, lifestyle and natural eyelashes were all carefully considered in order to create her perfect, customized lash creation. To complement her beautiful, natural features and existing lashes, Shelley went with a volume natural application, silk lashes and a stunning D curl, giving Paroma the full, lush lash line she had her heart set on.

After her full set application was complete, it was time to lift the lash curtain and hand over the mirror for Paroma to feast her eyes on her lash transformation. Two words came to her mind when she first saw her new lashes: BRIGHT and BEAUTIFUL! She  just couldn’t believe how much the extensions enhanced her eyes, how much brighter her face looked and, of course, how beautiful her lashes made her look and feel!

A NEW LASH LIFE

Not long after the photoshoot, we checked in with Paroma to find out what she had been loving most about her new life with lashes. Did they add convenience to her daily beauty routine? Did they make her feel empowered and ready to conquer the day? We simply couldn’t wait to hear what she had to share!

Instantly Alive

After receiving her gorgeous full set of volume lashes, Paroma woke up every morning to a pleasant surprise she described as a “refreshed look” and that was without a stitch of makeup, too!

What Morning Makeup Routine?

Since Paroma has to get up at 6 a.m. and gets not only herself ready but also her son, this busy wife and mom has loved her new, simplified beauty routine thanks to lash extensions. She save loads of time since her eyes no longer need several coats of mascara or eyeliner. “Lip gloss is all I have needed,” she said.

Clothed in Lash Confidence

Another incredible part of Paroma’s lash transformation was the newfound confidence she gained. She shared “I’m more comfortable to feel natural on a daily basis.”

This is music to our ears because we love that she now has the ability to embrace her natural beauty in a way she has not done before.

Compliment City!

That extra confidence boost Paroma had also came from all of the compliments she was getting from family, friends and even strangers! “I got compliments for my eyes and lashes wherever I went and that helps make it worth to me.”

We seriously love that Paroma now feels like her eyes are more of a focal point and that they were literally “catching” other’s eyes, too!

LASHING EFFECTS

Since getting lash extensions, Paroma has felt even more inspired to try something new, set new goals and step outside of her comfort zone. Having lashes has helped her work towards those extra goals she has, both large and small!

Recently, Paroma took a step to do something for herself and be a part of a movement to empower women. How awesome is that?!

In her day-to-day life, she told us she’s been mindful to look to the women in her life for inspiration for encouragement in her own journey as a woman and working mom.

“I look to my mother as a role model. It’s impressive how she managed outside work and took care of us. I learn from her alot for my day to day activities.” Work, motherhood and just life in general is a lot to juggle for any woman, but thanks to the women around her plus her new lash life, Paroma can conquer it all!


When we planned this photoshoot, we definitely wanted to get gorgeous images of our lashes. But, just as important to us, we wanted to witness our guests’ lash transformations in all their uniqueness. It was our goal to capture the true beauty of each woman and how “beautiful” comes in all different ages, looks, shapes and styles. We are so thankful for Paroma and all of our stunning lash models for helping us do just that.

Stay tuned over the coming months as we share more of the wonder women behind our shoot…and how they’re living their best lives with LASHES!

Tips & Tricks

The Difference Between Classic and Volume Eyelash Extensions

One of the first things we discuss when a new client visits one of our salons is the difference between Classic and Volume Eyelash Extensions, which we are also going to share today! Before we jump into explaining the difference between these two lash applications, let’s revisit semi-permanent eyelash extensions and what exactly they are.

Semi-permanent Eyelash Extensions

These are individual extensions made of a synthetic material to look like perfect natural eyelashes; thicker at the base and thinner at the tip with a slight curl. The most popular color is Solid Black, however they do come in many other color options. Each extension is adhered one by one to a natural lash using a medical-grade bonding adhesive, which gives the appearance of a darker, more voluptuous lash-line.

Now for the difference between Classic and Volume!

Classic Eyelash Extensions

These is our signature lash application where the attachment of 1 extension is applied to 1 natural eyelash. The result is an enhanced lash line with a natural and realistic appearance. We recommend Classic Lashes to those who want their lashes to look beautiful yet natural. See the photos below of real clients with Classic Lash Extensions.

Volume Eyelash Extensions

When it comes to volume extensions,  we apply 2 or more of our lightest lash extensions to 1 natural eyelash. Our Volume lashes are most popular with our clients since they offer incredible fullness and last longer than our classic lash application. See the photos below of real clients with Volume Lash Extensions.
