Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

At PrettyGirlsMakeFaces, the staff specializes in sprucing up appearances by applying semi-permanent eyelash extensions. Professionals affix silk, faux mink, or mink strands to individual lashes using medical-grade adhesive. With extensions varying in length, thickness, and curl, clients have the ability to request anything from a subtle boost in volume to a dramatic new look altogether. The extensions remain until the existing lashes fall out naturally, which means a full set can last as long as three or four weeks.
