Meet the Eyelash Pros: Lash Affair
We chat all things eyelash extensions with this beauty duo and find out what they're crushing on.
If the eyes are the window to the soul, then eyelashes are the drapes. And the gals at Lash Affair know a thing or two about fancifying said drapery. We hit up owners Lindsey Rock and Kristie Kipp for the low-down on their eyelash extensions—they offer classic lashes and new volume lashes—and what wedding trend, band, and local coffee shop they’re crushing on.
For the #SLCFashionBridals giveaway, they’ll be decking out the winner with volume lashes—valued at $225, that’s nothing to bat your lashes at. Be sure to enter to win if you haven’t already; the giveaway ends September 7 at midnight!
Below, take a peek at their eyelash finery, read our Q&A, and find out why lash extensions are a big-day “I do” and why they’re big fans of naked cakes and wedding planners.
Q | Why weddings?
A | Every bride should feel perfect on their wedding day. Lash extensions add that little extra touch to make you feel glamorous. We love customizing looks for all types of brides and strive to make sure we have options for every budget. We love hearing about the planning process of weddings, and giving advice if we can. And we love hearing how wonderful each bride’s day was when they come back in after the wedding.
Q | Describe your overall style and aesthetic:
A | Lash Affair is simple, classy, and sophisticated. We customize every look to meet every unique style.
Q | How long have you gals been at it?
A | We have a combined experience of 8-plus years.
Q | Wedding trend you love?
A | Lindsey: Naked cakes; I love how simple yet elegant they can look.
Q | Wedding pet peeve?
A | Lindsey: I really dislike when a wedding is unorganized. I really believe if you spend a little extra money on a wedding planner, you will enjoy your special day so much more.
Q | Favorite wedding or style blog?
A | We have two that we love: The Perfect Palette; Chrissy always has such great color inspirations; and Wedding Paper Divas; we love their fresh take on wedding stationary.
Q | Best Instagram feed?
A | Too many good ones to choose just one!
Q | Who does your hair?
A | Lindsey: I actually have two hair stylists. Kristie Baker from Salon L.A. Camille has been coloring my hair for years. When I got married I added extensions to my hair and love them. Stephanie Salaz from Salon Shag does my extensions.
Q | What item of clothing or accessory has been in heavy rotation this month?
A | Crops! They are so easy to dress up or down. They pair perfectly with a little heel for work but are great for running around on the weekends, as well.
Q | What item of clothing or accessory are you currently coveting?
A | We love a good statement necklace to add pop to any outfit.
Q | Best local restaurant you’ve tried lately?
A | Our favorite would definitely be Porcupine Pub & Grill.
Q | Current soundtrack?
A | Glass Animals
Q | Utahn you’d most like to meet?
A | Brit Andrus. We love her style, positivity, and the fun spirit she brings to her blog.
Q | Where’s your next travel destination?
A | Lindsey: In November, I’m headed to the Eastern Caribbean on a 7-day cruise to St. Thomas, St. Maarten, and Coco Cay. I’m so excited we’ll be leaving right when the snow should start falling. Kristie has an amazing trip planned to Europe next fall; she’ll be there for 2 and a half weeks and is taking a cruise through Spain and Italy.
