Beauty

What is a lash lift?

A lash lift is like a perm for your eyelashes. It lasts about 6-8 weeks, depending on how frequently your lashes naturally shed. It’s a game-changer for stick straight lashes that won’t hold a curl!

Life

Are you originally from the South?

No, but I’ve lived in North Carolina since 2006. I’m originally from outside of Chicago, Illinois. I got weary of the winters and was craving a change, so I moved down south and never looked back!

Beauty

Are you a hairstylist?

While I’m not currently working behind the chair, I was a hairstylist for many years before shifting over The Small Things full time. I knew at a young age I wanted to do hair, so I went to beauty school during high school and got my Cosmetology license at age 18.

Life

Where do you live?

I live in Raleigh, NC. I’m originally from Illinois, and grew up near Chicago! I love the South, but the pizza here doesn’t compare to Chicago Style Pizza!
