My passion for empowering women to feel confident, elegant, strong, and beautiful is what inspired me to follow my heart and immerse myself in the beauty industry. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Texas A&M University Galveston and my Masters Degree in Counseling from Texas Christian University. However, my lifelong appreciation for beauty and aesthetics motivated me to utilize my naturally creative skills in pursuit of a new path. I truly found my calling as a state certified eyelash extensionist. Quickly, I excelled in the detail oriented work, creativity, and the style customization of eyelash extensions. Through diligence and dedication, I have earned a strong foundation of professional training and accredited certifications since 2013 in classic, volume, and mega volume eyelash extensions along with styling courses. My commitment to regularly complete continuing education courses allows me to stay on the cutting edge of the eyelash extension industry while constantly improving my craft. As an eyelash extension enthusiast of 15 years and a lash artist of 7 years, I am a true believer in the positive and practical benefits of having eyelash extensions myself. My role as the owner of Eyeconic Lash Studio in Fort Worth, Texas has been a humbling and exciting journey. Meeting Nikki and working with Endure Lash has been such a blessing and I can’t wait to watch her first time literally change the lash extension industry.

Alexa originally grew up in Michigan but moved to Raleigh in 2012. With 4 years of lashing experience, she opened Unfiltered Beauty in Raleigh, NC in 2017. After doing Nikki’s lashes for the past 3 years, the two decided to collaborate and create the Endure Beauty Pro/Unfiltered Beauty collection lash trays. Alexa’s preferred lash art method is hybrid lashes because they’re the best of both worlds and so customizable. When she’s not working, you can find her with her friends and family, her dog, or at the beach!

With a B.Sc. and 5 years of graduate studies in Microbiology and Neurochemistry at McGill University, Suzanne Hill maintains an acute understating of disease-causing bacteria and the importance of proper sanitation; the banner under which EndureLash Aftercare functions. Her expertise in biochemistry and skin physiology also stem from extensive experience as a teacher of advanced college courses for a Pharmaceutical program. As a result, Suzanne widely recognizes the chemistry behind the Endure Beauty skincare line and how the use of organic ingredients give rise to the appearance of a more youthful looking skin.
Suzanne’s strong belief in Endure Beauty and in its founder, Nikki Huebner, has led her on a campaign of bringing more awareness to the efficacy of her products as being true and affordable--making them accessible to all women.
Lastly, what she shares with those the most: involvement in this company--be it as a consumer, distributor, spa owner, lash artist, trainer or student--is a contribution to a worthwhile charity very close to the heart: the Chyler Family Room Projects in honor of Nikki's baby girl who passed in a tragic car accident at 18 months old.
Having an academic career herself, Suzanne loves Nikki’s passion for assembling a Lash Academy to further empower people through education and training in an ever-growing sector in beauty. It is Suzanne’s hope that you will join the Endure family because she would sincerely love to meet you!
