Bowie and Crofton, Maryland
Xtreme Lash Stylist Since 2006
10 Things about ME and Why I LOVE to Lash:
What was your occupation before becoming a Lash Stylist?
Prior to opening Lash Moi, I was a hair stylist and owned a full service salon in College Park, MD.
Tell us a little more about it? What did you enjoy about it?
My joy from being a hair stylist and owning the salon was being able to take part in making people look and feel good. Our clients would come into our salon to either update their look or completely change their current look and would turn to me to do just that. I felt that I was able to give men and woman a bit of confidence when they left the salon that they didn’t have when they walked in. I also truly cherished the friendships I was able to establish with my clients.
What prompted you to look for something new?
In trying to keep up with the current beauty trends we researched the idea of adding lash extension services at our salon. Although I enjoyed doing hair, I didn’t love it. Once I took my Xtreme Lashes Level 1 Training class I fell in love and found my true passion! I decided to give up doing hair to focus on doing lashes and now I couldn’t imagine doing anything else!
What made you choose Xtreme Lashes?
My sister Emilie, who is also an Xtreme Lashes lash stylist, and I were both interested in doing lashes so we began to research the different companies and found Xtreme to be the best company, as they use the top products and have the appropriate training that we were looking for.
Does your salon offer any other services?
We provide cosmetic tattooing/permanent makeup and waxing services also. At Lash Moi, we currently have 8 Xtreme Certified Lash stylits and 2 Estheticians.
What was the most memorable lash application and why?
One of my clients went to another salon to get her lashes filled and came back to me crying. She was so upset by the way her lashes looked when left the other salon and expressed to me how much she loved my work and how I did her lashes. Hearing this from her not only made me feel so special, but also made me appreciate my hard work and dedication to my business. I strive to make sure that each and everyone of my client’s look and feel beautifulwhen they leave our salon, but when I hear it from them, I know I truly am lucky to be doing what I am meant to do and I know I have found my passion.
What’s YOUR favorite Xtreme Lashes retail product and why?
My favorite product would be Amplifeye. I have had many clients come to the salon with damaged and sparse lashes where clusters and other types of lashes. I have seen amazing results in there lash growth once they began using Amplifeye. Shortly after they began using the product, they were able to get Xtreme Lashes done.
If you can give ONE advice to a new lash stylist getting into the business, what would it be?
Don’t give up. No matter what the obstacle is, you need to find the strength to overcome it and believe in yourself, as you will find that you are much stronger than you think.
Do you have any favorite client testimonials about your work?
“I would like to stop and take a moment and THANK YOU for the fine service your business provided. Your Professional Team was extremely polite. I was seated in a relaxing upscale atmosphere with soothing music. I liked the way your staff addressed me by name, as it made me feel special. I appreciated the fact I was even offered refreshments, which totally blew me away. My Technician performed quality work, explaining fully each step along the way what was being done. They even gave sound advice on the upkeep and how to prolong touch-up visits. I felt they were not trying to take my money or take advantage of me. My personal needs according to my activities were addressed. Upon follow-up, I was asked” how can they improve their service for me”. They sought to personalize the time I spent with them and made me feel like FAMILY. Thank You So Much and I look forward to each and every visit, it is my relaxing time. Also, my Husband LOVES MY LASHES and tells me how sexy I look. He even doesn’t mind paying :)” – Sharlene S.
What is your Xtreme goal? Where do you see yourself in 2 years?
Since we have established, Lash Moi has 2 locations and is continuing to grow. My goal is to open more locations closer to all of our clients who make over an hour drive to get their lashes done. Our team began with just my sister and I and now includes 12 employees. We hope to continue to grow as a team and to provide the best service we can to our clients. In addition, Lash Moi strives to give back to our community. We have recently partnered with My Sister’s Place, Sarah’s House, Hospice of the Chesapeake and several local youth ministries in our effort to support the public. I would like to work more with our community in giving back as I feel that is really important. I hope that in 2 years I can continue to make women look and feel absolutely beautiful because to me, if I can put a smile on their face, it makes this journey completely worthwhile.
