The Lash Lounge, a luxury eyelash extension studio, will debut its first Arizona location with an opening Wednesday, Jan. 9.

In addition to a ribbon-cutting ceremony, the celebration, according to a press release, will include exclusive promotions at the 1,200-square-foot lash and brow studio, 15147 N. Scottsdale Road at the Scottsdale Quarter.

Pamela Percy, a former executive engineering manager who was in the engineering industry for 30 years before opening the lash establishment, owns and operates the Lash Lounge Scottsdale Quarter.

“It is thrilling to go from a career in engineering to owning this franchise and providing women the opportunity to embrace their beauty,” said Ms. Percy in a prepared statement. “I am honored to bring this high-quality lash experience to Scottsdale.”

Ms. Percy said, in a recent phone interview, she decided she was looking for something more than her career as an engineering manager.

“There are a lot of overlap skills that I can pick up and bring here going from a male-dominated world to a female-dominated business,” she said.

Ms. Percy, a mother whose son attends Arizona State University, said her background in engineering enabled her to transition into the beauty business by using engineering skills such as problem solving.

Since she applies her technical knowledge for things including working with the medical-grade adhesive for lashes, she ensures that factors like narrow-grade humidity are accurate.

“It really becomes a different type of problem solving, along with leading teams, as all of that overlap,” she said, adding the “business will be terrific” because of the applicable skills, background and vision, plus stellar stylists.

Ms. Percy plans to open more stores in upcoming months and is looking at areas in south Scottsdale or Arcadia, and possibly the east Valley. She’s received feedback from clients already who have participated in the soft-opening and training at the new site.

Meanwhile, the Chandler resident, who enjoys hiking and working out despite her “busy home-life and busy work-life,” looks forward to the grand opening.

“It’s right around the corner,” Ms. Percy said. “I have a group of people helping me to put together a party itself.

“I’m looking forward to doing a ribbon cutting and having people see the store itself,” she said, describing the soft opening training with her seven stylists who are certified and experienced on proper techniques and quality.”

She likes the look of satisfaction from clients who are happy with their appearance after seeing themselves in a mirror at the end with “beautiful lashes that are easy maintenance.”

The Lash Lounge is expanding its Dallas-based franchise that has approximately 50 locations open in the U.S. and has sold more than 300 franchises in various stages of development to open by 2020, according to the release.

The release described the female-founded company that provides semi-permanent eyelash extensions individually tailored for each client through a face-mapping system.

Using only premium synthetic material that is curled to imitate a natural lash, The Lash Lounge offers classic lashes and multi-volume lash extensions, eliminating the need for mascara.

The Lash Lounge Scottsdale is noted to have massage beds, headphones for customized music and health standards with medical grade-lash adhesive application techniques.

Other beauty services offered will be eyebrow tinting and threading, permanent makeup and eyebrow extensions.
