What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Being in the beauty industry as a makeup/hair artist, Ashanti Crawford found that the "pampered" experience wasn't really being met (without spending thousands of dollars). She wanted to create a business for clients to get their hair/makeup done & feel glamourous and beautiful all at the same time!
What do you love most about your job?
Being able to see a beautiful person and help them feel that beauty and confidence on the outside is what its all about. "Everyone can be pretty, but having confidence, now thats Beautiful!" -Ashanti Crawford
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
"I love coming to Ashanti, she makes me feel beautiful every week. I absolutely love her." - Ellen
Whether your idea of pretty is glowing skin and a pop of color on the lips or smokey eyes with dramatic contouring, Blushington Makeup & Beauty Lounge can help you achieve your beauty goal. Professional makeup artists at the popular beauty boutique create date-night, wedding, and everyday looks using products from both high-end brands—including Stila, Becca, and Kevyn Aucoin—and indie brands such as Girlacktik and Temptu.
Because they focus purely on makeup—with a few lash-extension and brow services thrown in—Blushingon's staff have experience that lets them seamlessly blend eyeshadow, conceal acne or undereye circles, or change face shapes with contouring techniques. In a video for BuzzFeed, a reporter praised Blushington's date-night makeover, saying she felt a "solid 10 out of 5 in terms of confidence" afterward.
Inside the pretty boutiques, where blush-pink accents mix with white decor and shiny products line glass shelves, guests can relax and sip champagne before their makeovers. They can also take a more active role during makeup classes, watching as artists apply makeup to half of their face and then copying the steps on the other half.

The Humble Abode salon and spa feels like home—which is not surprising, as it's situated inside a cottage surrounded by greenery and beaming with natural light. And it's easy to make yourself at home there, too, because their menu's extensive selection of services could easily require a whole day's sojourn. Beauty treatments include lash tinting and six kinds of facials, such as lactic peels and microdermabrasion. The signature facial pampers each of the face's 55 muscles—a perfect complement to the luxuriating body treatments, including deep-tissue massage and reflexology.
Those looking for more internal therapy can seek out one of the three chiropractic doctors, who aim to treat anything from sports injuries to spinal dysfunction. The Humble Abode also has a certified hypnotherapist, Myke Zykoff, who addresses behavioral issues with hypnotherapy and the calming effects of meditation.
To help guests ease their pain through fitness, a team of instructors leads Pilates classes in both group and private sessions. The bending and stretching sessions take place in a sunny studio furnished with reformer machines and mats, which can double as beds if you just never want to leave.

Online, and Perez Hilton. The staff exfoliates faces with more than 10 varieties of facials and peels, using the boutique's own line of products custom formulated from medical-grade ingredients free of parabens and sulfates. Therapists also treat clients with massage modalities such as Swedish, shiatsu, and deep-tissue, as well as waxing treatments that use specially formulated hard and soft wax for all areas of the body.
