With over 18 years in the cosmetology industry, Kristin Wood is a renowned eyelash and beauty artist with an extensive following in her thriving Honolulu studio.  Now, Wood is also adding the coveted title of successful entrepreneur to her resume.

In 2007, Wood established Kristin Wood Lashes – the state’s premiere eyelash studio – and best kept secret, specializing in semi-permanent eyelash extensions.  Wood’s extensive clientele ranges from Hawaii’s top female business executives, doctors, and attorneys to athletes and stay-at-home moms.  Celebrated as a pioneer in the eyelash industry, Wood’s vision, creativity and passion for all-things-beautiful, has driven her to develop exclusive products and techniques that have shaped and introduced the eyelash business in Hawaii.

On any given day, Kristin Wood’s luxurious and well-appointed Kapahulu studio is busy transforming her loyal clientele – all seeking to enhance both lashes and another priceless commodity – self-confidence.  Wood’s mission is to provide her clients with exceptional service and empower each guest with confidence and self-expression.

In addition to redefining the industry, Wood is also redefining beauty – one lash at a time, by empowering women to feel and look their best – both inside and out.  “I’m a firm believer that beauty begins from within and my goal as a lash artist is to empower women to discover, or reconnect, with their inner beauty through the art of eyelash extensions,” said Wood.

Much like the evolution of nail salons, eyelash services are becoming increasingly popular and Kristin Wood Lashes is leading the way.  As the first of its kind in Hawaii, the studio’s flourishing success is contributed to Wood’s high standard of excellence, including intuitive customer service, strict safety guidelines and passion for all-things-beautiful.

“As an eye doctor and surgeon, I am truly impressed with Kristin’s adherence and commitment to sterile technique in her meticulous application of lashes,” said acclaimed pediatric ophthalmologist Dr. Rupa Wong, M.D.  “She is always aware of potential complications and maintains the ocular health of her clients as a priority.  I only trust my lashes to Kristin and her trained staff. “

Inspired by her diverse clientele, Wood has proven herself once again as it relates to her commitment and passion for the industry with the recent debut of her advanced new product line, Ready-to-Wear Facet Lashes.  “Developed right here in Hawaii, Facet Lashes delivers the utmost in beauty, quality and value with our new product,” said Wood.  “With over five years in the making, Facet Lashes visibly delivers quality results, without sacrificing volume, texture and most importantly our strict safety and health guidelines.  As an added bonus, the natural and voluminous look is achieved in half the time as other forms of extensions, thanks to the new technique I developed.”

Kristin Wood has dedicated herself to the pursuit of natural beauty and empowering her dedicated following of Hawaii residents.  With the success and ever increasing demand for her signature eyelash services, Wood is taking Hawaii – and the mainland – by storm, or more appropriately by eyelash.  Kristin will continue to develop new products and technique, as well as debut additional studios in well-appointed locations within the year, including at Four Seasons Resort Lanai at Manele Bay.  This month, The Spa at Manele Bay debuted Kristin Wood’s lash services as part of the award-winning spa’s extensive menu offerings.  It is the first resort in Hawaii to offer such treatments.  To experience the ‘Lash of Luxury’ for yourself, please call (808) 738-7386.
