With Las Vegas being the entertainment capital of the world, there’s no doubt that the majority of women who work in many of the industries in Sin City need to look their best. Lash extensions have become one of the must-have beauty essentials in maintaining their daily beauty routine. With the demand for service in any industry, the quality can sometimes be compromised. For Lash Queen, Ariane Lazo, quality, and longevity is something that can’t be compromised when applying lash extensions.
With 15 years of experience in the beauty industry as a Hairdresser, Aesthetician, Make-Up Artist, Lash Artist and Cosmetology Educator, Ariane has put all this knowledge into choosing the right products and has refined her skills to offer the best service in this oversaturated market. Consequently, this has led to many referrals and continuous bookings that have kept this lash queen busy. This hasn’t stopped her from taking the next step in creating a brand that offers a line of luxury lash products and training to help other lash artists provide better service. With the launch of lashqueeninternational.com, an online store, all her Lash Queen products are available along with registration for artist training and other helpful resources. “Once I was able to reach a level of success in my business, my passion for being an educator encouraged me to empower others to contribute to improving the quality of service in my industry,” says Ariane.

Just as many businesses around the world that have been hit hard by the pandemic, Vegas truly showed a domino effect due to many businesses and industry’s that rely on each other to succeed, the beauty industry being one of them. Times like these are a true test to see if business owners have prepared or can adapt to hard times. It was important from the beginning to start Lash Queen International on the right track by creating an LLC and keeping her financials organized. It was her initial intention to be able to show that her business was profitable to buy a house and protect her financial future. “Putting in the work of creating a legitimate business would ultimately help me to keep it from going under,” Ariane adds. It is very common for many beauty professionals to not claim their income, such as sub-contracted workers that do not keep track of their income and spending. This put many of them in very tough situations throughout the pandemic and were forced, in many cases, to find other career paths or jobs. The change and uncertainty have made a lot of us feel uncomfortable, but for Ariane, once she adapted to this unfortunate situation, it was time to find ways to use this down time to step back and evaluate how she could improve her business and come back strong. Resilience is built in those who can get through and learn from tough times in life. She is now hoping to help others in the beauty industry to be better self-employed or business owners because a Queen is only as strong as her kingdom.
