Not everyone is blessed with full, long lashes or even brows, and as women age they begin to see a loss where once there was abundance. Where Mother Nature falls short, Occhi Lash & Brow in Oakbrook Terrace fills in the gaps. Literally.
Walking into the Occhi’ studio with its bright open space and hints of purple (the color of royalty) one cannot help but feel that they are in for, well, a royal treatment. It is just the kind of pick-me-up a woman needs whether she wants to look her best for a special occasion or a classic every day look without the need for any Mascara. At Occhi’ Lash & Brow we strive to help women accentuate one of their most important features— their eyelashes and eyebrows.
Occhi’ is that rare gem you find and almost want to keep it to yourself, but it’s nearly impossible when everyone can’t help but notice your eyes with overflowing compliments. Suddenly, you realize that this secret must be shared with other women! At Occhi’, the staff are all highly-skilled and trained eyelash and eyebrow artists who really listen to clients to achieve desired results.
“It’s amazing how simple eyelash and brow extensions can change the way a woman sees herself,” said Occhi’ Lash & Brow Founder Lynn La Palermo. “Our greatest joy is watching women leave our studio a little bit taller, with a brighter smile.”
The secret is in their attention to detail regarding training, hygiene, sanitation, quality products and consistent technique. All of the eyelash and eyebrow Artists at Occhi are trained using the exacting standards set by Founder, Lynn La Palermo. Her philosophy is that all Artists use the same technique regarding adhesive use, lash length, curl, sanitation protocol and creative design, ensuring the client receives the same result regardless of which Artist performs the service.
At Occhi,’ sanitation and safety is the foundation the studio is built upon. All tools are sanitized in a chamber at up to 400 degrees, and then packaged for the next client. Occhi’ Lash & Brow is the only eyelash and eyebrow studio in the U.S. with a Medical Board of Advisors, consisting of; A Optometrist, Ophthalmologist, Cosmetic Eye Dr, Optician and General Medical Physician. Occhi Management meets with the Board of Advisors on a quarterly basis to discuss all matters regarding eye health and safety.
Founder, Lynn La Palermo is no stranger to Chicagoland as a well-known Esthetician and Makeup Artist. For
more than 3 decades, Lynn has honed her craft studying with legendary Hollywood Makeup artist Syd Simons, the original Creative Director at Playboy. From there she opened a small spa offering full—service skin care in Oak Brook. And, after seeing the market saturated with spas, Lynn narrowed her focus, achieved new certification in Permanent Makeup and then Eyelash Extensions, and created a much needed niche.
Lynn’s impressive background also includes Volume Lash training with Nadia Afanseva of X VIP Lashes. Lynn is a member of the National Eyelash Education Safety Association (NEESA), and sits on the Editorial Board of Advisors for EYELASH Magazine, the industry’s leading trade publication. Additionally she has trained Estheticians at L.A. Sports Club and Mario Tricoci Salons.
