If the eyes are the window to the soul, consider Tina Marshall an interior designer who specializes in floor-to-ceiling windows.
Marshall is the sole proprietor behind Lash Out, a beauty studio that operates alongside her sister who owns, Sheer Necessities, a lingerie boutique in the Reading Bridal District. About a year ago, life changed dramatically for Marshall after she lost her job.
Luckily, she had earned her cosmetology license 15 years ago and kept it up-to-date through continuing education courses. So, she decided to brush off the dust and pursue her dreams of branching out on her own in the beauty industry. Today, she runs Lash Out, a beauty studio in the Reading Bridal District that focuses on lash extensions, permanent makeup and Tzone skincare.
She credits much of her success to happy clientele who not only tell others about Lash Out, but also keep coming back. In fact, Marshall says, she has a 90 percent client retention rate.
According to Marshall, lash extensions are applied in a multitude of ways. To get the best results, Marshall uses a process that’s called “one on one” extension where the stylist applies an a single extension on each lash. “This is more uncommon but the results are much more satisfactory, leaving a long, thick and natural look,” she says.
A set of full classic lashes starts at $150 with 2-3 week touch ups residing at $50 and 3-4 week touch ups at $60. A more dramatic look will cost $160 with touch ups remaining the same price.
In addition to the lash extensions, Marshall also offers permanent makeup and Tzone Skin Care. With permanent makeup, the time getting ready in the morning is dramatically reduced—by as much as half for most people.
“You wouldn’t need to fill in your eyebrows or apply lip or eye liner,” she adds. “Permanent makeup application is essentially painless and customers continuously leave satisfied.”
According to Marshall, Tzone products are top of the line. Based out of Cincinnati, Tzone is promoted across the U.S. Tzone Skin Care distributes a line of 40 cosmeceutical skin care facial products and 13 mineral dermaceutical makeup products. The products mainly target reparation and prevention of acne, along with rosacea, hyperpigmentation, aging, environmental- and sun-damaged skin.
“There is nothing more powerful than the skin’s inherent ability to heal itself,” Marshall says. “As long as it is provided with proper skin care and Tzone lifetime monthly and complimentary 30 percent glycolic acid face peels.”
