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!

The Beauty of Customization

Customization is the name of our game here at The Lash Lounge. The way we see it, no guest is alike, so there’s no reason their lashes should be either!

From application method to curl to lash level, today, we’re talking the customization classics, plus three guests share their one-of-a-kind lash looks!

FORMULATED TO FIT

Every time you visit The Lash Lounge, the experience will be 100% about you. This is your time, after all—to relax, to transform, to reclaim and reintroduce yourself to the world.

But before you lay back for some lash zzz’s, our trained stylist will guide you through a customization . First, we’ll learn a little about you, your lifestyle and the look you’re going for. Next, we’ll walk you through our different lash types, application methods, curls and fullness levels. We even have a lookbook we can flip through to help illustrate all your options! Working together, we’ll pull together the inspiration for your unique lash creation.

With all the customizable elements in place, next comes our exclusive lash design technique. Here, we’ll use your natural features as our lash canvas to create a personalized look that amps up your natural beauty. Unlike other salons, we do not offer cookie-cutter, “one size fits all” looks. Celebrating your unique individuality is our passion!

3 REAL CUSTOM RESULTS

It’s this customization, attention to detail and care that sets our work apart from the rest. But don’t take our word for it! See for yourself how this lash magic comes to life. We’re spotlighting three real guests’ electrifying lash looks, unique works of art built specifically for them by their stylists.

MORGAN FROM THE LASH LOUNGE

Morgan, our guest from The Lash Lounge Corporate Training Center, is all about va-va-volume. So, we knew right way our volume extreme lash extensions were the perfect fit for her!

To complete this look, Corporate Stylist Trainer Shelley used our bright D curl extensions across her lash line. Now Morgan, who is a rock star realtor, can take on each day with killer volume lashes as she passes those keys on to her clients.

SARAH FROM THE LASH LOUNGE FLOWER MOUND – ROBERTSON’S CREEK

This before and after on Sarah, guest from The Lash Lounge Flower Mound – Robertson’s Creek, almost speaks for itself. During her consultation, Sarah shared with her stylist that she wanted long lashes, but with a more natural appearance.

To achieve this look, her stylist went with our classic application method and C curl lashes. This means that she attached one extension to each natural eyelash in our softest curl. The result? Nothing short of the timeless look Sarah had her heart set on when she stepped inside the salon.

GILLIAN FROM THE LASH LOUNGE CHARLOTTE – BLAKENEY

When we have a guest who is torn between our classic and volume lash applications, we have the perfect solution: hybrid lashes! That’s just what Gillian from The Lash Lounge Charlotte – Blakeney chose.

To master this look, her expert stylist beautifully blended both methods (classic and volume) and created a custom design to give Gillian our dramatic lash level. A picture-perfect lash line was the end result and now Gillian is hooked on hybrid!


Love getting an inside look into the customizable options and looks of our guests? So do we! See our recent post with teacher and business owner, Cate Gale, and what she’s sharing about The Lash Lounge and her love for her new, simplified beauty routine!

Tips & Tricks

6 Ways to Transform the Usual Smoky Eye

One of the easiest ways to glam up any look  is with a great smoky eye. Consider stepping outside of the box this holiday season and try one of these unique looks below to transform the usual smoky eye into a show stopping look.

Emerald Smoky Eyes

Instead of making a statement with the usual red lip, make one with a bold smoky eye, but in green. The perfect green eyeshadow paired with volume lashes will make any holiday look pop, just as we see below on actress and singer, Lucy Hale.

Smoky Wings

Bringing the smoky shadow out along the corners of each eyelid gives an even more dramatic, smokier look with a sultry wing effect, which is sure to take your holiday glam game up a notch! Just see how fabulous this look is on model, Bella Hadid.

Subtly Smoky

Because sometimes less IS more, we love the idea of a subtle smoky eye, as seen below on Eiza González. A faint eyeshadow with a hint of shimmer is the way to go to achieve this elegant look.

Smoky Gold

A gilded smoky eye never looked so good, just as we see below on Nicole Richie who completed her look with classic, full lashes. Try ‘going for the gold’ this season and select a shadow with a shimmery gold tone and try this look for yourself!

Smoke ‘n Glitter

A smoky eye should never be limited to only dark gray shades, but can work beautifully when glittery, warm tones are used. Just see how fabulous Emma Stone’s eyes look! We also really love how the smoky look was not just applied to her top lid, but also underneath along her lower lash line for an even more sultry look. #bowchicawowwow

Blue Smoky Eyes

Try taking the usual smoky eye up a notch by accenting the look with a pop of blue in the inner corners, just as Kelly Rowland did. Then of course, her lashes complete the look with the perfect amount of length and curl.

Tips & Tricks

The Difference Between Classic and Volume Lash Extensions

One of the first things we discuss when a new client visits one of our salons is the difference between Classic and Volume Lash 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 Lash 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 Lash 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.
