GIRLKIN Lashes is a luxury lash lounge built on a premium experience paired with the highest quality lash services.



While the lash and brow industry is rapidly growing, GIRLKIN believes that products and service standards cannot be compromised. They are committed to giving their clients, affectionately called GIRLies, expert advice, and recommendations on services, styles, treatments, and availability. As a result, every customer gets a luxurious and comfortable experience; the customers’ time, satisfaction, and trust are their top priority.   Kim designed GIRLKIN Lashes with two principles in mind: an exclusive customer experience and stunning lashes, of course. Kim started lashing from her living room in 2016 and quickly built a clientele of hundreds throughout Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC. In 2018, those principles transformed her living room of love and lashes into her luxury lash lounge flagship location in Pikesville, MD. Within three years, Kim was able to add three additional salons to the GIRLKIN brand. The mission is to provide an unmatched experience with gorgeous lashes and unbeatable customer service in a glamorously luxurious environment.   While Kim created GIRLKIN well before her luxury salons, the name divinely foreshadowed a business that empowers women to feel their best. Intertwined with her passion, GIRLKIN is a play on Kim’s maiden name. GIRLKIN Lashes offers an exciting way to empower women and entrepreneurs in the community. GAINFUL. INFLUENTIAL. RELENTLESS. LADIES KEEPING IN-NETWORK. GIRLKIN believes in the empowerment of all women and their beauty choices.    GIRLKIN is a lifestyle brand. The heart and CEO of GIRLKIN Lashes, Kimberly Fernandez, prides herself on providing her clients with a place of relaxation and solitude through ever-evolving times. Once clients step into the space, they become one of the GIRLies, a part of the GIRLKIN brand, and the driving force behind all GIRLKIN team members. Her passion is infectious and authentically refreshing when you talk to Kim about her business.    Kim is a transformational leader in the beauty and business communities! While sustaining a prosperous 18-year career in Senior Management, she’s built a brand that is just as transforming in the beauty market as her leadership has been in everything she has touched.    Married and raising four amazing boys, Kim enjoys volunteering and supporting our youth through sports, crafts, and community activities. GIRLKIN encourages getting involved in the local community in whatever way is possible. A large part of the community that Kim knows is working mothers. She wanted to give back to those mothers, to provide them with a luxury experience – an oasis where they can feel pampered, even if just for an hour every few weeks.   Every GIRLKIN Lash location (lounge) features sparkling surroundings and a serene, upscale color palette; enjoyable and expert stylists add to the pleasant and ultimate customer experience. This experience of luxury, coupled with the stunning result, tends to draw sophisticated, successful clientele to GIRLKIN. The primary market for GIRLKIN services is professional women in the 30-year to 50-year age bracket, though, of course, GIRLKIN serves customers of all ages. A typical GIRLie is a professional woman that is required to present themselves well every day but does not have time to spend a great deal of time applying lashes every morning.    In 2021, Kim franchised GIRLKIN (GIRLKIN Franchise, LLC) and her vision to grow GIRLKIN across the globe, providing opportunities for like-minded business warriors with a drive to serve and secure generational wealth. Her first franchise location opened in July 2021 outside of Atlanta in Dacula, Georgia.   GIRLKIN does not just stop at offering their services, they also use their own exclusive GIRLKIN brand, high-quality, professional products. Each team member is equipped with the tools they need to provide the experience the customer expects. All artists are double and triple certified in eyelash extensions and are insured. GIRLKIN offers licensed esthetician services, including adhering professional eyelash extensions.  They are empowering their employees and franchise owners by providing the opportunity to expand services to provide customers with the ultimate beauty experience. Services can include but are not limited to brow tint, lash tint, brow shaping, brow lamination, facials, microblading, waxing, make-up, and other esthetic and nail services.   GIRLKIN has created a supportive environment between the executive, administrative and stylist teams. This is also mirrored in the franchise model. GIRLKIN believes: the customer is always our top priority and is always considered first in what we do. The GIRLKIN Lashes employment opportunity is for high-performing, motivated customer-savvy professionals. They only hire the best—polished, passionate and personable. GIRLKIN franchise owners can expect benefits like a strong identity, thorough education and training programs (initial and ongoing), quality products, commitment to keep improving the business model, rewarding business based on satisfying customers, and competitive, successful and sustainable business model.   GIRLies that come to a GIRLKIN location can expect the same service and atmosphere no matter when or where they go. Kim’s unique technique for lashing includes; not adhering to multiple natural lashes together, comfortable, custom design set of lashes, and 1:1 personal service every time. It’s all in the details; the service beds are comfortable with faux fur, and they provide blankets, so the customers fall asleep quickly. GIRLKIN gives clients a full, natural, gorgeous look through its superior, one-lash-at-a-time application process. In addition, a custom-built mapping system ensures stylists create the ideal, most flattering design for each eye size and shape.   Keeping the branding on point, eyelash extensions are offered with matching names based on the style of extensions. For example, GIRLKIN offers School GIRL, Glamour GIRL, GIRL Crush, and Show GIRL. Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent, synthetic extensions that are adhered one by one onto each natural lash (not the skin) by using a medical adhesive that lasts 2-4 weeks.    GIRLKIN is driven to empower both customers and employees. GIRLKIN lives and breathes their principles. GAINFUL. INFLUENTIAL. RELENTLESS. LADIES KEEPING IN NETWORK., but it ripples out even further. It means to uplift and encourage others, support other artists, operate with integrity, exude a positive attitude, and live up to what the GIRLKIN brand is today, tomorrow and beyond.
