Former Nightlife Exec Opens Beauty Boutique in Southern Highlands

Natalia Harris brings a keen eye for aesthetics to Glam Parlor Lash, Brow & Beauty Lounge

Natalia Harris may have semiretired from the nightlife industry, but it’s difficult not to notice its influence on her new Southern Highlands–based lash and microblading salon, Glam Parlor Lash, Brow & Beauty Lounge.

If anyone was going to compare the look, it’s something they might find in a nightlife-type lounge rather than a spa setting,” Harris says. “You feel like you are in a mini-club when you are here. It’s old-school Hollywood meets new-school glam.”

The lounge (10660 Southern Highlands Pkwy., Suite 103) officially opens with—what else?—a VIP event December 8.

Harris spent more than 10 years in nightlife in various capacities, most recently as the marketing director of Play Management, whose portfolio includes Light Nightclub and Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay. But after having a baby, she decided she needed to shift her career ambitions.

“I’ve always been interested in beauty, and I live in this neighborhoods. There really wasn’t anything like this,” she explains. “If I was going to get an eyelash service, I was driving 20 minutes. That was around the same time when I was trying to figure out what it was that I wanted to do.”

Harris, who fell in love with the ease of having lash extensions and microbladed eyebrows, knew this was the kind of service she wanted to bring to her community once the space became available. But that meant creating a salon with two key concepts in mind: quality and ambience.

The ambience was the easy part. Harris knew the decor needed to match her style and personality, and that meant lots of pink and glitter.

“I wanted this to be a princess cave,” she says of the 1,500-square-foot space, which features dramatic chandeliers, sequin drapery, a glam station and a neon sign that reads “Wake Up Glam.”

For Harris, and thanks to her nightlife background, part of the ambience meant giving clients an elevated experience. So, all eight lash stations are private, and feature oversized, comfortable recliners with built-in USB ports. The two microblading rooms are also secluded.

But finding the right artists and stylists was more challenging, and Harris hunted everywhere in the city for superior and talented professionals.

“It’s not about just putting a set of lashes on somebody,” she says. “It’s important to keep their lashes healthy. The artists we have here do a good job of that because we want to make sure we have long-term relationships with our customers.”
