Hidden Gems: Meet Audrey Raezer of Starlet Lash Lounge

Today we’d like to introduce you to Audrey Raezer.

Hi Audrey, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Shortly after graduating esthetician school in 2014, I was hired at a local salon. There I met a coworker who was a lash artist, and at the time while working at the salon I also worked as a bartender/ waitress and I was very familiar with wearing lash strips, she ended up doing my lashes and I was in LOVE! I had never considered doing lash extensions until this point. My coworker offered to let me watch her work on a client to decide whether or not doing lash extensions would be something I would be interested in. I decided to go ahead and get certified in them. Long story short, after becoming certified the salon owner at the salon I worked at didn’t want two people doing lash extensions, because of this I decided to go off on my own four months after being certified. This is when Starlet Lash Lounge came about! From that point in 2015 to now, I have been a lash artist and owner of Starlet Lash Lounge. Starlet Lash Lounge originated in Colorado Springs, CO and recently relocated to Sarasota, FL!

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Definitely not a smooth road! I have no degree in business and no previous experience in anything business. It has all been a learning lesson throughout the years. I will say with my current relocation from CO, there have been some struggles rebuilding and establishing my business here in Sarasota. I’m literally starting all over again.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
I have seven years of experience as a lash artist and I specialize in Russian Volume but also offer other lash services such as Classic and Mixed Lashes and offer trainings to other lash artists. What sets me apart is that every set I create is tailored to my client’s unique facial features, as well as making my client’s natural lash health a top priority. I believe lash extensions should enhance a woman’s beauty, not overpower it. What I’m most proud about Starlet Lash Lounge is that it’s a space for women to be empowered. Whether she’s looking to feel confident day in and out or confident in her lash skills as a lash artist. We believe in being the best version of yourself!

We love surprises, fun facts and unexpected stories. Is there something you can share that might surprise us?
I still feel like I have no clue what I’m doing 🙂
