Lash Crowd

201710LAshCrowd

Marbellís take great pride in their appearance and when a new beauty salon opens, it is always arouses considerable interest. Society was fortunate enough to visit Lash Crowd, which opened during summer 2017, and talk to its owner Michelle Trezise and salon director Kirsty Penrose about the business and its fabulous lashes.

What sets you apart from other salons?

Our journey began in 2016 when a Lash Artist and her customer found each other and became friends. They shared a passion to bring something very special to Marbella’s beauty scene and in July 2017 Lash Crowd was born.

Lash Crowd is the first specialist lash, brow and beauty bar situated in Puerto Banús, Marbella. We are different to other beauty salons in Marbella who offer lash extensions and brow treatments as a secondary service, outsourcing them to third parties. We employ our own specialist artists and technicians who adopt the latest techniques and utilise the best products to ensure our customers stand out from the crowd! Furthermore, our staff are vigorously and continuously trained to ensure our customers always receive market leading treatments and service. We know no that two customers' features are the same so we adopt a consultation approach and recommend the treatments we think are the most appropriate for you.

What services/treatments do you offer?

We offer a wide range of treatments for lashes, brows and beauty:

Lashes

Our lash extension range is extensive and includes individual, Russian and Hyper Russian. We have also designed our own range of striplashes and have 24 different styles in stock.

Brows

We offer traditional treatments such as brow threading, tinting and waxing but specialise in the following specialist brow shaping and design techniques:

High Definition Brows is a specialist seven-stage eyebrow shaping and design technique. Our experienced artists will recommend a tailored treatment specifically for your eyebrows. The treatment stages include tinting, waxing and threading eyebrows to perfection, using specialist HD Brow products. 

Beverly Hills Definition is another specialist treatment we offer that provides a more prominent definition and uses premium makeup from Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Microblading is the latest semi-permanent treatment for perfect eyebrows. Our in-house specialist microblading artist consults with customers to agree an individual look by drawing the desired shape with removable pencil. Once satisfied, we will use a specialist microblading pen to semi-permanently draw on individual strokes one by one.

We also offer an array of beauty treatments:

Laser Hair Removal

We have invested in the latest safest, effective and pain free laser machines from the US. We offer permanent hair reduction (including ingrown hairs) and all skin tones are suitable for the process. You will see results after a single treatment, but 6 to 8 treatments are normally recommended.

Laser Rejuvenation

Laser rejuvenation is a spectacular ant-ageing treatment, which stimulates the skin cells and promotes collagen production. Your skin will feel soft, smooth and tightened. You will see an immediate improvement after a single treatment but we recommend monthly maintenance sessions.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is the new way to exfoliate your face. It involves an experienced technician using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. You will see an instant improvement in your skin texture and tone, with the long term effects being increased cell turnover, reduced wrinkles, acne scarring reduction and the removal of fine facial hair, also known as vellus hair or peach fuzz.

Nails

We offer an array of nail treatments including nail repair, file & tidy, manicure, pedicure, shellac manicure, gelish manicure and gel extensions.

Makeup

We offer makeup application by our MUA team and customers can choose from an array of natural and party looks.

Is there a particular range of products that you use?

The majority of our lash extensions have been designed specifically for us in Germany, so we have our own brand. We also stock a range of premium products including Revitalash, Revitabrow, Chrissanthie, High Definition, Anastasia Beverly Hills and the Tropic vegan-friendly natural beauty range.

Why have lash extensions and brow shaping become so popular?

We live in a world where beauty and fashion are heavily promoted by the media and the Internet. Celebrities promote the latest beauty trends to millions of people all over the world and women just love keeping up with what these famous names are doing. The lash and brow market has grown considerably in recent years and we forecast it will continue for quite some time to come.

What are the lashes made of and is there a particular brand you prefer to use?

We have our own silk lash extension brand, which has been designed exclusively for us. We also have our own range of striplashes in both silk and mink, and 12 different styles of each.

Is there a trend in lash styles?

The latest trend in lash extensions is Russian Volume with 75% of our customers opting for this look. More and more customers are having two tone Ombre lashes fitted. We currently offer these in blue/black, purple/black and red/black.

What is different about the Russian lashes you offer?

We have a huge selection of thickness, length, colour and curls. We utilise a special glue which works exceptionally well with Marbella’s humidity levels. Also, applying Russian Volume lashes is an art and we have the best Lash Artists in Marbella to ensure we exceed customer expectations.

What is the average cost of lash extensions and how often do they need to be replaced?

A full set of Individual lashes is €80 and Russian Volume lashes are €120. Both require maintenance appointments every two to three weeks, which costs €40 (Individual) and €50 (Russian Volume). Some clients prefer to come to us weekly for a tidy up which costs €20 (Individual) and €25 (Russian Volume).

Thank you Michelle and Kirsty for explaining the amazing world of lash extensions. Well, there you have it Marbella – the ultimate place to go for lashes, brow shaping and much more is Lash Crowd.
