Local Business Highlight: Sisu and Tyyli
Let's get to know Lindsey
I've been in the spa/salon industry since I was 19. I got my first job working the front desk at a small spa and quickly realized I was more interested in skincare, waxing, and selling product so I saved up and put myself through esthetics school. At 23 I was hired by a large luxury spa where I focused on European skincare and waxing. As the only fulltime esthetician there I was eventually put in charge of training new employees, which I loved but I was craving more control over my schedule and finances.
What pushed Lindsey to open Sisu and Tyyli
I went back to school for my cosmetology license because at the time I thought I wanted to open my own spa/salon but halfway through the program I found out about lash extensions and just knew this was going to be the next big beauty boom. I took a leave of absence from cos school to fly to Houston TX and was trained by the president of NovaLash eyelash extensions and the global educator...and I guess you could say the rest is history.
For the past 10 years my focus has been the lash industry. I have built a clientele and trained new lash artists in Michigan, Chicago, Indiana and the Caribbean for a couple years. I love what I do, I am able to flex my creative muscle and connect with people on a deep level.
What is Sisu and Tyyli
The most rewarding part of Lindsey's job
I've been lucky enough to be featured in a number of industry magazines and collaborate with amazing artists who I admire and make some life-long friends along the way, but the most rewarding part of what I do is helping to empower other women. From creating a custom set of lashes for a woman who is wanting to feel more confident to training a new lash artist who wants to start a new career and better her quality of life or support her family...that's the good stuff, that's the biggest reward!
