On any given day, The Lash & Nail Company’s team of seasoned beauticians can be found gussying up the hands, faces, and eyelashes of their patrons with an array of glamor-boosting services. The salon’s aestheticians apply sets of permanent and semipermanent extensions around peepers to beef up natural eyelashes, whereas nail technicians slather natural backscratchers with OPI Axxium gel that can remain chip-free for up to two weeks or seven high-fives from the Statue of Liberty. Staffers also perform facial waxing services to de-fuzz visages.
The brainchild of independent entrepreneur Bianca Jackson, B-Lashes Beauty Parlor both distributes lashes for a leading overseas manufacturer and dispenses them at Bianca's storefront location, a "lash lounge" that specializes in eyelash extensions. Her staff of certified technicians enhances glances with synthetic mink and silk extensions selected by clients from a variety of colors, textures, sizes, and thicknesses. Unlike many brands, which deliver tacky-looking strips or thin lashes still bearing gluey residue, Bianca's lashes are lush and luxurious, adding naturally-looking body and volume to each sultry wink. That's why they're the lashes of choice for a who's who of notable local personalities. Specialized gels bond the formaldehyde-free lashes to existing natural lashes, with results lasting more than six weeks. Clients wear the extensions while showering, sleeping, and even chopping onions. In addition to offering lash enhancements, Bianca also bolsters looks with permanent-makeup applications and waxing services.
Trained at the Aveda Institute of Columbus, the eponymous owner of Felicia Rand Esthetics strives for technical excellence in all of her services. The dual-licensed aesthetician constantly updates her skills in her specialties, which include nail and skincare services such as facial and bodily waxing. She also wields strip lashes, lash extensions, and lash tints to add drama to eyes and amplitude to butterfly kisses. Her salon is located inside Mezmerize BNB.
