About Lauren

Hi!  My name is Lauren Strickland, (soon to be Lauren Wright this November, YAY).  I am the founder and owner of Instaglow Spa and Permanent Makeup. I have been an Esthetician since 2012, and I have been a permanent makeup artist since 2017.  I am extremely passionate about my career and finding you solutions or products that will give you the results you’re longing for.

In opening the new location, I hope to offer you all of your favorite day spa treatments, including: skincare, massage, permanent makeup, lashes, injections, spray tans and much more! All while making you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and impressed when you leave.

If there is anything I can personally do to accommodate or help in any way, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask for me personally. I want nothing more than you to leave wanting to come back!

My Story

The last few years you may have found me located at Meraki Studio in Edwardsville. I quickly outgrew my location and decided to take a leap of faith and open a full day spa; Instaglow Spa and Permanent makeup. Everyone always talks about the “instant glow” after their service, so I found the name fitting!

Industry Experience

I have been working in the industry the last 10 years, and it has really made me strive for a higher standard of service expectation and results. I pride myself on giving you the most relaxing, high end service while making sure that you leave feeling stress-free, educated, and most of all leaving with a smile knowing you received a great service, whether that is from me or one of my talented service providers. We have a high standard to give you a service you want to tell your friends about and that brings you back for more pampering. Continuing education and keeping up with the newest services in our industry are very important to us.

I have built close to a thousand permanent makeup brow sessions and it always feels so good to hear people say how life-changing it is. Correcting skin complications and giving you a more youthful appearance while making you feel confident is always my goal. 

My Interest

One of my favorite things about my job is it never feels like work. I love meeting genuine people and giving them results they’ve longed for. A lot of my clients over the years have became great friends. I have enjoyed watching their lives grow and being there through life with them. Seeing clients transform and gain confidence as we correct skin concerns or enhance their beauty with permanent makeup, is always so fun.
