Kati Prater, wife of the Detroit Lions player Matt Prater, has an exciting gig of her own. This spring, she will be opening The Lash Lounge in downtown Birmingham in The Pearl, a new development under construction at 856 N Old Woodward. Prater will become the local franchisee of the first location of The Lash Lounge, which is based in Texas with over 94 locations nationwide. “The Lash Lounge is your destination for semi-permanent and permanent beauty services,” they state, offering a complete menu of services, including eyelash extensions, refills, threading and more. “When you visit The Lash Lounge, you enter a retreat designed to rejuvenate you from the inside out. The Lash Lounge provides a refreshingly new approach to the daily task of making eyelashes long and lush, saving women time and delivering amazing results.” The Pearl, arriving in March 2020, is a luxury 26-unit multi-family apartment development located near the corner of Oak Street, close to Birmingham Farmer’s Market and Booth Park.
