OLYMPIA'S PREMIER LASH AND BEAUTY BOUTIQUE! VOTED KING 5 NEWS BEST OF WESTERN WASHINGTON!
THE STORY OF PRIMP
I graduated from the University of Washington with a B.A. in Speech and Hearing Sciences which allowed me to work with developmentally disabled children for three years. Truly rewarding and challenging in all the best ways. Although I loved my job, I always found myself being drawn to the beauty industry in some way.
I experienced my first set of lashes while preparing for my engagement photo shoot in Bellevue, WA back in 2011. Not only did I love the lash therapy sessions I had with my lash specialist, but I loved what lashes did for my confidence. After learning more about the Aesthetics industry, I knew I wanted to be able to give to others, what lashes brought to me. As the years passed by, lashing became more than a job, it was therapeutic and fun, and still is to this day. There's nothing better than the reveal, when a client opens their eyes and loves what they see.
I brought the lash game to Olympia before many people even knew what they were. After years of training and working in Olympia salons, and after months of stressing to meet the demand of my returning clientele, I decided I needed more flexibility in my schedule to accommodate each and every one of you- and Primp was born. Over the last six years, I have trained several local lash artists, and I take great pride in seeing them excel as business owners in the industry.
Doing lashes and playing with makeup was only supposed to be for fun; I never thought it would literally change my life. It’s an amazing and beautiful thing when your passion and career come together. Every day I get to hangout with incredible women, while making them feel beautiful...and the best part of all is that I get to call it "work." I love being the person who can help someone feel confident and beautiful not only on the outside, but also feel good on the inside.
It has always been my dream to be able to provide a "one-stop-shop" for all things beauty, and Primp & Refinery is just that. Annie, a very talented hairstylist and owner of Refinery, was a coworker of mine at a salon in downtown Olympia back when I first started lashing. I’ve trusted her with my tresses since day one. After parting ways from that salon to pursue our own endeavors, we stayed in touch and continued to chase our dreams of something bigger and better. The stars finally aligned in 2017 when she presented me with a gorgeous space with the most amazing windows! The beauty collaborative began.
Refinery, offering luxury hair services for men and women. And Primp, offering lashes, brows, microblading, makeup artistry, spray tans, and dermaplaning. All the beauty services and products you need under one roof! We have created a space that is welcoming and on-trend, and sought after by individuals up and down the west coast. We strive to provide the finest services in the industry, and we hope that is evident after visiting us at the beauty collab.
