LL Owner Renay Pegg

Name: Renay Pegg

Location: Carmel, IN

She is a: Wife, Mom, Entrepreneur

1. Q: Where were you born and raised?

A: I was born in Indianapolis, IN and raised in Carmel, IN.

2. Q: What’s your favorite childhood memory?

A: Wow – who can pick just one? Some of my favorite childhood memories include going to the beach with my family – the beach was and remains one of my happy places. I also love memories of playing outside with my neighborhood friends all day until dark!

3. Q: What were you doing before you decided to own a Lash Lounge?

A: I had a really successful, 11-year career working for the Federal Government and leading several teams working on high-visibility projects.   That being said, it was time for a change, and so approximately two years ago, I started my own Lifestyle Management company called “Do Life,” which has been really exciting.  Although it’s a small company, it’s really taught me a lot about what it takes to run a business and opened me up to meeting so many new people in the area.

4. Q: What are you passionate about in life?

A: I’m definitely most passionate about the important relationships in my life – namely my family. I like to think I have a strong commitment to them, and I’m doing the best I can to be a good person for them.

5. Q: What are the top two things on your bucket list?

A: I definitely want to travel throughout Europe and own a home right by the beach.

6. Q: Have you had a significant instance in your life that you’ve had to overcome? If yes, please share.

A: I don’t exactly have one particular instance that I’ve had to overcome, but rather, the overall experience of coming into a position of authority and leadership at such a young age. I managed my first major project when I was 24 years old, went on to be a Division Chief for a large organization at 25, then became the Director of an organization at 26. This was all during a time when a large percentage of the workforce at my place of employment was gearing up for retirement, and the “young people” were not looked upon favorably. I had to work extra hard to prove myself as a leader worth following, and ultimately, I was able to do that.

7. Q: What would you like to be known for?

A: I’d like to be known as someone who takes chances in life, and who does not settle for the norm just because it’s comfortable. Honestly, I’d like to be known as someone who succeeds in her endeavors.

8. Q: What most inspires you?

A: I’m inspired by my daughter; more specifically, by setting an example for her of how to live life the best way you can.

9. Q: When and where did you first discover and learn about The Lash Lounge?

A: Let’s see – it’s probably been less than a year since I discovered The Lash Lounge. It’s a funny story, but a friend of mine actually brought it to my attention. She was throwing out the idea of opening a franchise and asked me if I thought it was crazy. I thought it was amazing! The idea never really escaped me, and my friend ended up moving, so I started doing more in-depth research, and I immediately fell in love with The Lash Lounge concept.

10. Q: List 3 words that best describes your first impression/experience with The Lash Lounge.

A: Beautiful, fun, opportunity of a lifetime (wait, that’s 6 words – I don’t always follow the rules)!

11. Q: What do you most look forward to when it comes to your Lash Lounge location and the future of your salon?

A: I can’t wait to bring this amazing, amazing business to Indiana – I just know it’s going to be a huge success here. I feel it in my bones, and I’m so excited to see that happen – to see women experience The Lash Lounge, feel beautiful, and help The Lash Lounge family expand beyond its Texas roots.

12. Q: What goals have you set for yourself as an owner, as well as the salon?

A: I have several goals as an owner:

  • To have a career I love – that’s so important to me, and it’s a huge reason I chose The Lash Lounge rather than any other business
  • To grow something big! I really want to make as great a name for TLL in Indiana as it has in Texas
  • To build a culture such that the team wants to work there and clients can’t wait to visit
  • For this salon to become so successful that I have no other choice but to open another location!

13. Q: Who has influenced your life the most and why?

A: Oh wow, this may sound clichéd but it’s just the truth – my family. My parents are so brave – they took a risk in moving their family from Russia to the U.S., not knowing the language, and having to rely on help from others, in order to build a better life and brighter future. Talk about a huge risk! Then of course, my husband and daughter because all the choices I make in life are with them in mind. They influence what I do every day.
