Eyelash studio opening
A husband and wife are opening an eyelash extension franchise in Grand Rapids.
Amazing Lash Studio, an eyelash extension franchise, will open its first Michigan location at 2088 East Beltline Ave. NE in Knapp’s Crossing in October. The store is owned and operated by husband and wife team Randy Hagg and Lori Rincones.
“My wife and I have always been businesspeople and we are proud to bring the first Amazing Lash Studio to Michigan to fill an unmet need for eyelash extensions in the area,” Hagg said. “Amazing Lash Studio offers an inviting, comfortable and spa-like experience at an affordable price point, making it possible for more women to enjoy this unique service.”
The couple was inspired to open a studio after Rincones got her first eyelash extensions while on vacation last year. During a trip to Phoenix, the couple discovered Amazing Lash Studio – where the franchise is headquartered – and decided to open a studio in Grand Rapids.
Store construction now is underway and it will feature 10 individual, private rooms. This is the couple’s first Amazing Lash Studio and they plan to hire about 20 people.
They also plan to open two additional West Michigan locations in the future.
Colliers International West Michigan advisers Jon Geenen and Earl Clements handled the transaction.
“Amazing Lash Studio joins a complementary mix of businesses at Knapp’s Crossing including Woodhouse Day Spa and Ulta,” Geenen said. “Colliers is always keeping an eye out for new and exciting brands to bring to West Michigan and we’re delighted we could find them space in a growing retail center.”
There are more than 200 Amazing Lash Studios in 29 states.
