our story

Instant Pretty Lashes, LLC was founded in June 2014 by freelance artist and Bay Area native, Christina Mendez.  She provided exclusive services; to include make-up application and eyelash extensions in the privacy of her valued clients' homes. 

Christina soon realized there was a gap in the beauty industry that fell between the stylist, the client and traditional salons. She wanted to bridge this gap and continue to provide exceptional service without losing respect for what clients seek in a traditional salon: relaxation, quality and availability.  In 2016, Christina turned a dream into a reality and collaborated with Mercedes Benz to create a mobile salon specially designed and custom built, allowing her to bring the traditional salon to the clients's door, the beauty van offers a modern, classy luxurious feel with full salon amenities that will cater to your beauty needs at any given private space.
