You guys know I love networking with local businesses, especially female-owned and operated!! Coming together with all of our talents to create content that elevates both of our work is a fun and magical experience!
Not only is Shelby a fabulous businesswoman and lash expert, but she is also a great friend of mine! This session was back in May of this year, and ever since then, our friendship has blossomed! Check out the gorgeous team at Lashing Out – visit them to have the best lashes in town 😉
Here’s from Shelby-
Introduce yourself and tell us about Lashing Out!
“I’m Shelby Mckinney, owner and master lash artist at Lashing Out eyelash extension salon. Lashing Out is where I was able to grow my passion for giving women gorgeous lashes and help other stylists do the same. ”
Did you ever imagine owning a salon? When was Lashing Out born?
“I never really thought I would own a salon, I just thought I would be doing lashes solo or with someone else. Lashing out was born in December 2014 when I decided to go solo and my friend Hanna, who is our level 4 stylist, came with me. In these 5 years, Lashing Out has grown in ways I never thought it would!”
Where do you find the most inspiration for the style in your salon?
“The inspiration for the salon’s style was really to make it into my Barbie dream home. Most of the furniture items are vintage and recovered with pink velvet that I picked myself. I wanted the decor to be fun and stylish while still making our clients feel comfortable.”
What makes your salon and team better than the rest?
“We value education and all of our stylists are constantly being taught the most up-to-date techniques. All the stylists and staff at Lashing Out are a family. The personalities of everyone in the salon fit together so well. We have family dinners together and really think of each other as our family.”
What’s your favorite part of the day?
“I love getting to see how happy everyone is after they get their lashes done and being able to get to know so many fabulous men and women around Dallas that become a part of the Lashing Out family.”
How has your latest photography helped your business?
“Our amazing photographs from you have helped us elevate our marketing material, our social media, and our website. The headshots of our stylist and the shots of them in action have been great to show people close-ups of our work. The professional photos of our work, our salon, and our stylists will never go out of style. ”
Thanks for being such a ray of light to those around you, Shelby!
