Though their moniker implies a limited focus on only two treatments, the staff at The Lash & Wax Boutique has padded their aesthetic portfolio with far more services than just eyelash extensions and body waxing. Their classic and clarifying facials keep complexions smooth, and six assorted peels help fight signs of aging in delicious flavors such as blueberry and pomegranate. Spray tans, permanent-makeup applications, and long-lasting mink and synthetic lashes give the facility a spa-like feel. However, the real staff specialty is hair removal that reaches way beyond wax?the staff also banishes unwanted strands via threading and body sugaring, which is not only a gentler depilatory than wax, but receives a far warmer reception when accidentally dropped into a pot of coffee.

After serving in the United States Air Force for nine years, co-owner Jaymie Larsen decided to pursue a career that would allow her to reclaim her feminine side and indulge her passion for beauty. After graduating from the Euro Institute of Skin Care, she dove into a lash-extension course and knew she wanted to open a business where she could concentrate on building better blinks for eyes of all shapes and sizes.
At the same time, aesthetician and fellow Euro Institute graduate Athena Nazarian was gaining experience working as a consultant for Christian Dior and honing her skills at a Pro Sports Club spa, where she specialized in medical skincare treatments, makeup, waxing, and eyelash extensions. After opening her own lash boutique, Lashes by Athena, she soon found herself with more clients than she could handle, leading her to partner with Jaymie on a brand new venture.
