The Uptown Story
Dreamed up for years by owner Marci Matejcek, an Esthetician who desired to offer services that differ from the everyday salon & spa atmosphere. Uptown Beauty Lounge is the new generation of beauty salon treatments and experiences.
Starting as an in-home esthetics studio, Lashing Out Enhancement Studio aimed to 'Enhance Your Natural Beauty'. As time went on, and the services because more specialized and skilled, there was a need to move out of the home and into a commercial space. Lashing Out Studio & Spa opened it's doors in January 2015, taking on new staff that could learn the art and allow clients more flexibility and options.
Back up to the spring of 2014, Marci opened a professional esthetics supply store, and began teaching privately and at Elegance School of Esthetics in London, Ontario. She also created a natural and eco-friendly line of eyelash extension products called Lash Naturals.
In spring 2016, the time was right to make the move: Lashing Out's two room studio could no longer house the rapidly growing clientele. The demand for new services that are unique to the region was calling, and we decided to answer. Uptown Beauty Lounge offers all the services that the tri-cities needs, but didn't offer, until now!
