Ignacia Garcia


Ignacia Garcia is the founder/owner of Flutter Lash Studio Corp. Garcia was one of the first individuals to receive both training and certification from Xtreme Lashes in January of 2006. Later on that same year, she went on to receive her advanced certification from Xtreme Lashes in November of 2006. Garcia became part of an elite team of Xtreme Lashes trainers in 2008. Since then, she has trained individuals from coast to coast who have gone on to become successful Xtreme Lashes stylists.

"I have a lot of passion for what I do", Ignacia says. "Lashes to me are truly an art form. My trademark is that I customize the lash extensions for each individual , Taking into account face shape, eye shape, lifestyle, and a myriad of other factors. My advanced training has also taught me how to use color combinations to really enhance the eyes and allow individuals to make their own personal statement."

In October of 2007 Ignacia was honored by Xtreme Lashes when she was named Xtreme Lashes Professional of the month.

Recently, Ignacia has added to her repertoire with the addition of fibroblast facial treatments and scalp micro pigmentation. Both of these allow her to expand into transformational and restorative types of work to treat the individual needs of each client for a truly personalized beauty experience.

Velvet Medina


Velvet’s amazing creativity and sparkling personality make her a client favorite. She was educated by Xtreme Lashes (and her aunt, Ignacia) in 2016. Velvet’s commitment to delivering excellence to every client is inspirational.

She has been interested in fashion and beauty since she was small. With a majority of her family in the beauty industry, Velvet’s entry into the business was simply second nature. Her thirst for knowledge is endless. Velvet is always adding to her abilities with workshops and additional education. Travel and music are other inspirations that influence her work along with her sweet pup Russell, who’s often Velvet’s sidekick at work.

Kelsey Mark


Between lashes, being a makeup artist and her singing career, Kelsey is a gal in constant motion. From her beginnings in Grand Rapids to her high school years in Texas, her adventures have made her the outgoing and friendly technician that clients adore.

Makeup and fashion were interests since childhood, so when the opportunity arose to learn makeup artistry she took advantage and discovered a deep passion. After learning about the transformative powers of makeup, lash extension training seemed like a natural progression. Kelsey took the Xtreme Lashes class in 2017 and has great aptitude for design and application.

When not working, you can find her spoiling Gilbert, her beloved pug, at the gym or at a karaoke bar near you.
