A new salon offering eyelash extensions and permanent jewelry just opened in the neighborhood.

Mavis Wen, who’s been in the cosmetic industry since 2018, opened MavyBeauty on Ocean Avenue near Granada as a way to advance her business. The licensed esthetician went from working out of her home to sub-leasing a spot in the neighborhood to holding the grand opening for her new brick-and-mortar space on Feb. 17.

“I was born and raised around this neighborhood so it was really nice to be able to open something of my own,” Wen said. “It's so surreal.”

The bright space has three leather recliner chairs with overhead light bars, one of which Wen uses to conduct her services. There is also a small station near the door for patrons to get permanent jewelry along with a client waiting area outfitted with a cushioned bench. Wen plans to rent two chairs to other estheticians.

Services offered include full lash extension sets like classic, wet, volume and more for $155 to $185 with a $50 non-refundable deposit. Wen also offers three types of fill sessions: a mini fill after six days and a full fill after two weeks or after three, for customers to refresh their sets with prices ranging from $70 to $130. She also offers lash removal for non-full sets for $30 with the option to add on the service when booking a full set.

In addition, Wen offers permanent jewelry applications for rings, bracelets and necklaces for $65 and a $25 non-refundable deposit.

Services can take from 30 minutes to roughly 2 and 1/2 hours and include educational information on how to maintain the products.

“It’s very rewarding,” Wen said. “I take pride in myself in creating this experience for clients and the quality of my work.”

While Wen markets herself mainly on social media, she said having a salon has opened her up to new clientele and brought her regulars back for more.

“Our services could be for anybody,” Wen said. “It's meant for everyone.”
