Hi! My name is Jenna I am 31 and I grew up in Aspen Colorado. I’m a wife of 14 years to a handsome electrician and a mom to two adorable kiddos. I am both a lash extensionist and makeup artist. I have my own lash studio in my home that I work out of around the clock and absolutely love what I do!
What sparked your interest in lashing and how long have you been in the lash industry?
As a makeup artist, I love being creative with the face. I have always thought it was fascinating how you can transform someone’s look with the smallest changes. I went to school for lashing right out of beauty school and have been doing them ever since! Going on 10 years now.
What has been some of the best advice you have received since starting your business?
Never stop learning. The industry is always growing and changing so I should be too!
What does your daily routine look like?
My mornings are usually crazy getting kids ready for school and dogs fed, however I do make time for myself! Thankful for lashes that keep me looking awake and glam! I tend to book myself back to back with clients until I pick my kiddos up from school.
What is something that you do, just for you?
Honestly? I haven't done much just for me in a while, but I love getting a good massage or facial and shopping gives me life! I also sing in a band and love to do that.
What was one of your hardest life lessons, and how did you learn/grow from it?
I would say, one of the hardest things I’ve had to learn is that the world isn’t what I thought it was. Growing up in a small town (we call it a bubble) I was very used to kind, joyful people. Strangers who talk to each other just because. When I moved away from Aspen for a short period of time, people weren’t kind and caring and so I have made it a point in my life to always carry joy and kindness, especially to my amazing clients!
Do you have any tips for those in the industry looking to grow?
Don’t be intimidated. I always find other artists who’s work I admire and instead of feeling like I’m not good enough, I study and train and watch other people’s techniques. There is always more to learn and there is always new things to try.
