WHO ARE WE?
LashBar™ was founded in 2016 by husband and wife duo, Joseph and Lina Mai. With their combined experiences, Lina designed and built out the first LashBar™ while Joseph worked on perfecting the operations and customer experience.
Creating a family-like environment was a priority for both Joseph and Lina as they built their business from both a customer perspective as well as an employee perspective. Soon after the first LashBar™ was established, other artists expressed interest in owning their own LashBar™ location, and in February of 2018, the couple decided to Franchise their company. They have since expanded to 12 Franchise locations with several more in the works.
LashBar's mission is to provide entrepreneurs the platform they need to soar to new heights and fulfill their dreams of entrepreneurship while not compromising their creativity.
Our mission is to instill confidence in our guests through perfected lash services and an amazing salon experience.
