Lashing out on the warm coast

Lash Hush Studio opens on Foul Bay Road

Alison and Scott Paulin left the cold Alberta winters in Calgary for the moderate climate in Victoria. The couple had spent the last 20 years in day home care and insurance. Both had been customers of Fabutan, North America’s largest indoor tanning franchise, and they wanted to be self-employed.

“We had been customers there for years and they have great products,” said Scott. “We decided to leave Calgary and move to Victoria.”

Once here they opened Hush Lash Studio at 1072 Foul Bay Road. The reaction so far, said Alison, has beengood and they feel welcomed by people in the neighbourhood.

“We are in the neighbourhood for the long run,” said Scott.

At Hush, all they do is eyelash extensions. Their lash stylists are well-trained and up on the latest trends. Professional and health conscious, the lash stylists turn sparse eyelashes into a full set of semi-permanent eyelash extensions completely customized to flatter each person’s eye shape in length, thickness and placement.

The procedure takes anywhere from one to two hours for classic or volume eyelash extensions. The lashes are put on one at a time and will last about three weeks. As natural eyelashes fall out, Hush offers touch ups and re-lashing. Hush also carries a full line of lash extension friendly makeup.

Clients are encouraged to book online and information and guidelines will be emailed before the appointment so a client knows what to expect.

Hush plans to open a second studio in Tuscany Village in mid-May.
