ABOUT BLUFFTON LASH LOUNGE
Who We Are + What We Do
Established by Jenifer Locklair and Bethany James in 2014, Bluffton Lash Lounge is a professionally-licensed beauty boutique that offers eyelash extensions, lash and brow tinting, and facial waxing and threading services. The idea for Bluffton Lash Lounge originated as many great ideas tend to do—over a glass of wine! With a shared passion and years of experience in the Lowcountry's personal care industry under each of their belts, Jenifer and Bethany made the decision to combine their talents and open their own studio.
What began as a small studio space outfitted by a massage table and a dryer soon developed into a thriving business that joyfully serves residents of Bluffton, Hilton Head Island, and beyond from a charming cottage on May River Road. The atmosphere of Bluffton Lash Lounge can best be described as bohemian-zen—the peace and calm of a spa mixed with the eclectic decor of your favorite hang-out spot! As Jenifer shared with CB2 Magazine, “We want people to come in and get that feel, and relax and take a breather. We create a lot of good energy here.”
We are committed to excellence in every avenue, which is why we're intentional about the products we use and supply at Bluffton Lash Lounge. Our wax is soy-based and adheres gently to the skin. NovaLash—a leader in semi-permanent, individual lash bonding—is our primary lash provider. Both Jenifer and Bethany, who train all of our technicians, are certified practitioners of the NovaLash eyelash extension application system. NovaLash's award-winning adhesives are pharmaceutical grade, which is just one of the reasons why NovaLash has a reputation for being one of the healthiest eyelash extension systems. To help maintain your new lash look, we also stock nourishing mascaras and other beauty products in-house.
Read on for a few FAQs about eyelash extensions and what to expect from your appointment at Bluffton Lash Lounge. We look forward to welcoming you to the studio soon!

Have questions? We have answers!
WHAT'S SPECIAL ABOUT NOVALASH?
NovaLash’s glue is completely different from other glues. It’s oil-resistant, meaning you can get your lashes wet immediately. You can work out right away after your appointment! Since we cure our lashes with a dryer and distilled water, you can wash your face with oil and your lashes still won’t come off.
WAIT A MINUTE...WON'T OIL MAKE MY LASHES COME OFF?
Not at all! Actually, if your lashes start to get crusty, it’s because of a lack of oil. We encourage our clients to use coconut oil to remove makeup and to moisturize their lashes.
AFTER GETTING LASHES, HOW OFTEN DO I HAVE TO COME IN TO MAINTAIN THEM?
Our lash extensions will fall out with your natural lash. The frequency of your fill appointments will depend on your unique lash cycle, but we typically recommend a fill every two to three weeks.
WHAT COLORS AND SIZES OF EYELASHES DO YOU OFFER?
Lashes range in size from 8mm to 15mm in length, and we offer three different thicknesses. In other words? Your lash look is completely customizable! Although most of our clients go for black lashes, we do offer an array of colors including blue, purple, green, pink...even glitter! So fun for the holidays, costume parties, and other special occasions.
ARE LASH EXTENSIONS BAD FOR MY EYELASHES?
Quite the opposite! Eyelash curlers and mascaras can be rough on eyes and eyelashes. With eyelash extensions, however, you won't have any need for these products. If you do still wish to wear mascara, ask us about the formulations we offer in the studio—they work well with lash extensions!
