Victoria Parrish is the founder and owner of Lashtastic Lounge, a business with a mission to bring the inner beauty that each woman who walks through the Lashtastic doors embodies to their own awareness. “Lashtastic Lounge began from a desire to create a space for women to express their feminine side fully and unapologetically,” said Victoria. “Modern-day women are tasked with so much from being the center of home life to providing for their families in emotional, spiritual and often financial needs, and on top of all of that – we’re supposed to also exude femininity. Each woman is unique in how her beauty is expressed, and the results-driven services provided here at Lashtastic Lounge allow each and every single woman to unleash her own unique femininity.” Victoria also strives to help out her local community through her business. “We love to give back in any way possible,” said Victoria. “We have been a sponsor for local elementary schools, doing giveaways for them as well. We are partnering with the Bright Beginnings Program through the Chamber of Commerce in Kernersville for local schools to have the supplies they need. We have partnered with The Beauty of Hope – where they donate 10% of revenue to help fight against human trafficking. Every year, we host a charitable donation for the local Women’s Shelter, having fun giveaways for our clients to partake in.” And, this is just the beginning. In her spare time, Victoria enjoys spending time with her supportive husband and her two children, 5 and 3.
