The Lash Lounge Flower Mound Owners

Name: Terrell & Yvonne Hemphill

Location: Flower Mound, Texas

1. Q: Where were you born and raised?

A: I was born in Austin, Texas and Yvonne was born in Los Angeles, California.

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

A: Yvonne’s favorite memory is Sundays with her family.  Early in the mornings she and her dad would go to the local Mexican bakery to get pan dulce (sweet bread) and bolillos (french bread rolls).  When they returned home, Yvonne and her dad would play music while her mom cooked breakfast for the family.  Her dad’s favorite song for her was ‘My Girl’ by The Temptations and he would always dance with her when the song played.  In fact, he still dedicates the classic song to her whenever they hear it.  Their special Sundays continued as Yvonne and her family went to church, followed by a fun filled day together at the park.  At night they would watch The Wonderful World of Disney as a family,  which made a perfect ending to their weekend. These are the childhood memories Yvonne loves the most!

My favorite childhood memories consist of family vacations, particularly our trips to Taos, New Mexico where we all learned how to ski together.  I remember this time fondly because for a week we would immerse ourselves in family bonding with no other distractions.  Just the four of us, all playing and enjoying each others company away from our otherwise dedicated rolls.  I found my parents (and) little sister to be quite cool after all!

3. Q: What were you doing before you decided to join The Lash Lounge as a franchisee?

A: Yvonne is currently the V.P. of Operations at The Lash Lounge corporate office in Grapevine, Texas and will continue to do so once we open our salon.  She has 20+ years experience in salon operations working for hair care brands within the franchise industry.

As for myself, I have 30+ years experience in the Real Estate/Land business and currently work for Enterprise Pipeline Company.

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

A: Yvonne learned about TLL when she was introduced to Founder and CEO Anna Phillips, by a mutual business partner.  The Lash Lounge Corporate Office needed someone with franchise operations experience and Yvonne was looking for a career path where she could make a positive impact by using her skills, knowledge and experience.  Yvonne was inspired and excited to have the opportunity to work with a visionary like Anna and is grateful to be part of The Lash Lounge team. Together, we are thrilled to now be franchisees!

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

A: Inviting, Sophisticated, Visionary

6. Q: What are you both passionate about in life?

A: Creating a fulfilling life and sharing it with our family. We are most passionate about the important relationships in our life, our family, which includes 5 children and 2 grandchildren. We have a strong commitment to them and strive to do the best we can to be a resource of love and unending dedicated support in achieving their dreams.

7. Q: What’s at the top of your bucket lists?

A: Yvonne: Taking a tour of Italy with Terrell.

Terrell: Watching the Northern Lights while lying under a fur blanket and enjoying a fine bottle of wine with my wife.

8. Q: As a couple and now franchisees, what would you like to be known for?

A: We would like to be known for being an effective team in life and in business. We would also like to be known for integrity in all we do, while also having compassion for others.

9. Q: What most inspires the two of you?

A: We have come from very humble beginnings. We fully know that success requires hard work, and while at times it can be fearful, we know that means taking risks.  We are inspired by our common goal of developing a business model that allows us to provide career opportunities for others.  Achieving our goal is fueled by knowing that sometimes the difference between what we want and what we fear is the width of an eyelash.

10. Q: What do you most look forward to when it comes to the future of The Lash Lounge Flower Mound?

A: What we most look forward to with our future salon is cultivating a positive culture that influences team members and customers. We want to pull together a team of people who genuinely enjoy contributing to a rewarding work place.

11. Q: What goals have you set for yourselves as an owners, as well as the salon?

A: As owners, our goal is to be true mentors to our team members while also providing a business where our clients look forward to coming to.  Kind of like Cheers.

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

A: Our parents!  Their endless love and selfless giving taught us to care for others. They provided a simple, loving home and role modeled a strong work ethic which influences who we are today.  They have always believed in our abilities, even when we didn’t know how capable we could be. They are definitely the wind beneath our wings!  Then of course, our children and grandchildren, because all the choices we make in life are with them in mind. They influence what we do each day.
