Eyelash artists Jussie and Shondra Weinberg recently invited First Selectman Beth Heller to a ribbon cutting for their new business, Amethyst Lounge. The sisters’ business is located in the old Red Barn location at the corner of Center and Amity roads.
Heller congratulated the sisters on growing their home-based business into a storefront. “This is such a unique business, and I’m proud that Amethyst Lounge has chosen Woodbridge as its new home,” said Heller.
The spa offers eyelash extensions, skin treatments, eyebrow sculpting, massage, reiki and aromatherapy. Both of the Weinbergs are certified eyelash professionals and each has more than 12 years of experience. They also teach the art and safety of eyelash extensions.
The interior of the building has been painted lavender with black accents and period furniture. The lobby area is home to an assortment of goods by local artisans, including jewelry, crocheted clothing, aromatherapy and more. Upstairs is classroom space and an area for organic spray tans; downstairs are the eyelash stations and a massage room.
An initial investment for a full set of eyelash extensions costs around $200 and touch ups are necessary every few weeks. Touch up sessions last about 90 minutes while the customer also receives aromatherapy and a heated neck wrap. “There’s no rush to anything we do,” explained Jussie, “and you leave feeling pampered with an amazing set of eyelashes.”
Amethyst Lounge is open Monday, Wednesday and Fridays 10 am to 4 pm, Tuesday and Thursday 12 pm to 7 pm and Saturday 9 am to 3 pm. For more information, visit AmethystLounge.com.
