Who is Alexandria Gomez in five words?
Lexie is a beautiful, intelligent, hustler, motivator, and powerhouse of a woman.
When did you discover your passion for the beauty industry, specifically Lashes?
I discovered my passion for lashes in 2015 when I use to strip in the strip club and used strip lashes but wanted to get out so I then started doing makeup for the beauty counter Bobbi brown and I actually received a gift certificate to have mine done from my mom who was a single mom as well as I am today and my life was forever changed. I said this right here is what I want to do I’m going to become the next BEST lash artist. And I never looked back only forward.
You hold many titles as a salon owner, business coach, lash product creator and so much more, how do you balance it all?
I have always been a multitasker in life and if it wasn’t for my team at LNY I wouldn’t have had been able to become successful and let my creative juices flow. I had the help of Virtual Assistants that perform many tasks such as answering calls, reading emails, and helping me achieve success so that I am able to produce and be successful. I am actually a single mom currently and only focusing on my courses, products, my book “Habits of a Successful Lash Artist” on Amazon, and podcast at the moment.

I am a firm believer and self-care such as facials, massages, and nails, and pedicures. Everyone woman deserves to be pampered and feels beautiful.
A Lot of your time is spent nurturing and teaching upcoming entrepreneurs, What advice do you have for the next generation of lash artists?
If I could tell one thing to the next generation of lash artists is to “ Don’t sleep on the clock” and to always “Dream Big” bc all you have is time and in a blink of an eye that time will pass you by so make the most of every second you have and hustle every moment you have like it’s your last day here. And to never stop dreaming bc anything can be possible if you put your mind to it and want it bad enough.

Pretty Woman who hustles is a woman with grace and dignity who thrives to be the BEST at whatever they try to pursue in their career whether you are a stripper, stay-at-home mom, lash artist, or teacher. You do your job with Joy in your heart and Love for God bc without him we are unable to make it. You can do all things through Christ, prayer, and meditation. And hustle hard ladies it’s 2022!!!
