The Lash Lounge
To say Leisa Erickson has an eye for details would be putting it mildly. Each day, she hovers above the peaceful faces of her clients with sleek, silver instruments in her hands. She uses these tools to glue synthetic extensions to each lash, one at a time. That's why she opened The Lash Lounge—to create a haven both for her craft and the women that appreciate the drama that lush, lengthy lashes add to their look.
In addition to being certified as an eyelash extension artist, Leisa is also a licensed cosmetologist. Her cohort, Carly Castelli carries the same credentials as Leisa, along with the title of fastest lash artist in the West. Together this duo primps fringed lids with extensions and applies semi-permanent mascara, which tints lashes for up the three weeks. They also shampoo the delicate strands inside tiny eye-sized showers to kill potentially harmful bacteria.
