"I began to explore ways to help my aunt feel and look good again after her treatments," says Scrima. "I decided to attend Lavish Lash training. My trainer, Crystal Boyd, became my mentor and friend. It was love at fi rst lash! I practiced on everyone and took over Crystal's clientele when she moved away." The 2013 LashBoom conference in Chicago was another pivotal moment in Scrima's career. "LashBoom taught us Russian Volume —I could fi nally give my clients a fuller look without damaging their natural lashes," she says. The next year, Scrima opened Posh Lash in the offi ce of a local eye surgeon. "It gives my clients an added sense of safety and professionalism to know that I'm affi liated with a doctor," she says. "It's an amazing feeling when your clients love your work, but the best compliment is when the doctor tells me he's seen my clients' eyelashes under the microscope and admires the precision of my work!" Recently, she opened a second Posh Lash location in nearby Lynnfi eld. "We see about 150 lash clients a week now," says Scrima, whose new salon also offers brow design and reconstruction in addition to lashes.
