Deka Lash is an eyelash extension franchise that provides a range of extension services, as well as supplemental lash lift and brow lamination services. The brand also offers membership services for clients who want to “auto-pilot” their appointments. After its 2011 foundation and 2016 entry to the franchise space, Deka Lash has grown to award over 300 territories with over 130 already open, bringing its unique, custom beauty experience to communities nationwide.

How Many Deka Lash Locations Are There?

After its foundation in 2011, Deka Lash began franchising in 2016, growing from a single studio in Pennsylvania to a network of 130-plus franchised locations across the country. Currently, over 300 territories have been awarded.

Though the concept’s number of company-owned locations has held relatively steady since its entry to the franchising space, the total unit count has followed an impressive upward trajectory over the course of the past seven years.

Deka Lash has become a prevalent player in the women’s beauty industry, bringing its key offering, eyelash extensions, to the market in a more accessible way. Thanks to its unique, accessible business model, Deka Lash was recognized on Entrepreneur’s “2018 Top New Franchise” and “2019 Fastest Growing Franchise” rankings.

What Is the Deka Lash Business Model?

Deka Lash has built its brand on the foundation of a comfortable beauty experience that is both private and connected. With a semi-private lash station, clients can receive lash extension services in a shared space without feeling entirely exposed. Because of the nature of lash extensions, clients consistently return for fill-in appointments, and franchise owners have relatively secure recurring revenue.

A franchisee’s build-out process and costs rely heavily on the number of lash stations the owner opts to support.
