Christie McFarland Bush | Owner and Master Lash Stylist
Christie McFarland, who has always lived in the Metroplex, decided to change careers after 7 years of marketing/sales in the Medical Industry. She always wanted to be in the service industry of making people feel better about themselves, so she decided to go back to school. Christie enrolled in the Esthetology program at Ogle School in August of 2010.
Christie fell in love with the eyelash extensions, began putting them on everyone she knew, and they fell in love with them as well. More and more people kept coming to her, and wanting this new, fabulous look. So Christie decided to open up her own Salon.
Christie had the vision and created Lash & Glow, an eyelash extension and spray tan salon. Since then, Lash & Glow has become so much more than the original vision, growing in size and number of employees, all due to the skills, dedication, patience, and talent that help create beautiful, individualized looks for every client. Before and during those six years there were numerous mediocre training sessions and poor quality of supplies experienced. Also, being in the industry for so many years, having a full lash salon, there has been many first time clients that have come in with bad lash extension applications from other salons. Fortunately the poor work was corrected and replaced to meet the Lash & Glow excellence standard, which in turn gave Christie the vision to create Lash & Glow Academy.
In creating Lash & Glow Academy, the vision was to better educate the student lash stylist, and provide the best products, knowledge and training for a new stylist to use and grow a business. The core focus is the belief in taking the time to really instruct the students to properly do what this business is about, which is the safe application of eyelash extensions.
In addition to the Lash & Glow Academy, over two years ago, Christie had the vision to establish a Lash & Glow brand of products made with the best quality of ingredients that are safe and effective and allow stylists to truly Take Beauty to the Next Level.
“I believe that God made us all beautiful on the inside as well as the outside, and I just enhance what God has given us.” – Christie Bush
