The Lash Lounge's founder Anna Phillips—an advanced certified eyelash-extension trainer—once traveled the nation to impart the art of semipermanent eyelash application to scores of fellow lash artists. Now, at all of Lash Lounge's locations, such artists work to ensure that every guest returns to their day-to-day activities batting fuller, darker lashes. They meticulously apply each synthetic strand to a natural lash with medical-grade glue, imbuing peepers with a customized, natural look that can last up to two months with proper care. Applying lashes of varying lengths, thicknesses, and degrees of curl, they have earned the praise of publications including Allure magazine and Women's Wear Daily.
They also strive to eliminate lengthy daily makeup applications with permanent-makeup services. After a complimentary consultation, a staff of licensed aestheticians and permanent-makeup artists precisely applies permanent eyeliner, lip color, or third eyebrows. For those who prefer makeup that washes off, Anna has concocted her own line of mineral cosmetics, brushes, and primers.
Before earning her medical aesthetics certification from the Metroplex Health System in Killeen, De Lash Epiphany owner Sheneta S. Coleman worked as a registered nurse for years, developing her compassionate bedside manner as she cared for intensive-care patients as well as recipients of cosmetic surgery. Today, she takes that same compassion and patience chairside, putting clients at ease as she helps them to build full, healthy-looking lash lines. A certified Xtreme Lashes stylist, Sheneta delicately applies the synthetic strands one by one to the real lashes, a process that ensures they'll shed naturally over the course of two–four weeks.
Xtreme Lashes taper to a fine point and follow a natural curl that draws attention to the eyes, giving clients more opportunities to win staring contests. Unlike some extensions that are made from mink or other animal hairs, Xtreme Lashes are made from polyester, making them more durable and less likely to cause an allergic reaction.
