Lori Kim Wunsch

Founder, Lash & Brow Educator, Online Business Coach

I am fortunate enough to be able to serve women looking to become part of the lash industry, teaching them the art of lashing, helping existing artist up-level their skill set and helping them grow their business.

I am a mom to 3 beautiful girls and have an amazing man who supports me 100% in all I do in life.  I have a big personality in a goofy, quirky and spontaneous way, I am an addict with anything having to do with personal growth as well as with continuing education within this industry.

Being in the beauty industry since 2001, having built Eye Candy Lash + Brow Boutique and now opening Eye Candy Lash Academy, I have learned and have grown a lot.  I am here to share my knowledge and experience.  Helping women to be able to build + create a life where they can financially take care of themselves is the stage of where I am at in my life.  Let's learn, share and grow together!

Became Co-Owner of Portage Location, August 2019 Eye Candy Lash Academy, Volume Lash and Micropigmentation Educator

I’ve been in the beauty industry since 2005 having started as a makeup artist then becoming a licensed esthetician and now a Lash & Permanent Makeup Specialist. I have owned two salons in the past, achieved many certifications and taken several courses, and will continue to educate myself as this industry is ever evolving.

Family is so very important to me. I have chosen my path in life so I can be my own boss and spend more time with my husband and our 3 amazing children. This career has given me the freedom to do that and provide for my 3 kids. I wake up everyday feeling blessed that I have a job I am so passionate about. I am excited to share my knowledge and expertise with my students and look forward to meeting you at the New Eye Candy Lash Academy!
