Meet Our Team

Nicole Nuyannes

Co-Owner / Esthetician

Nicole has always had a passion for the beauty industry since she was young. She never imagined her passion for beauty would not only turn into a career but also a business. Nicole graduated from Millersville University in 2016 with a degree in accounting and finance.

Although she enjoyed working in that industry, she didn’t feel fulfilled in what she was doing. Nicole decided to pursue her passion and go to cosmetology school. She graduated from Lancaster School of Cosmetology as a licensed esthetician. Shortly after she took a class for lash extensions and fell in love. She then took a class in Russian volume lash extensions.

After working on many friends and family members who were so kind to be models, Nicole knew this is what she wanted to do. The excitement and joy that people expressed when they looked in the mirror after getting their lashes done is what made it all worth it. Nicole loved making people feel beautiful and confident. Blink Beauty Lash Lounge is a dream come true for Nicole. She gets to combine the knowledge she has from both of her educations and work on both the business and beauty side of things. Nicole is excited to share her love and passion of beauty and lashes with both old and new clients!

Megan Forbes

Co-Owner / Esthetician

Megan, is overly thrilled to be able to share her take on beauty with the rest of Lancaster and surrounding areas as co-owner of Blink Beauty Lash Lounge. Megan started her love for beauty as a young girl just by simply watching her mother do makeup in her bathroom mirror. Megan has been a freelance makeup artist since she was 16 years old.

At the age of 18 Megan decided to become a CNA thinking of the possibility of becoming an RN one day. She continued on with makeup education throughout her early 20s. After she gave birth to her son Trey, she decided to follow her true heart and passion in the beauty field/industry. She not only continued her education in beauty but decided to be in her first pageant as a plus size model. Megan was crowned with the national title of Miss Fashion Week Plus 2017 USA!  Megan walked in a handful of local fashion shows and in 2019 she walked for London Fashion Week 2019.

Although Megan loves modeling, her goal was to always be an owner of a beauty salon. Megan took her first eyelash extension course in the year 2015 and started to do lashes on models as well as freelancing with wedding makeup. She then continued her education by taking the esthetics course at Lancaster School of Cosmetology. She graduated as an Esthetician in December of 2017. Megan then decided to pick up practicing with lash extensions yet once again. Over the course of four years' experience, Megan now specializes in different looks and styles of lash extensions along with current day wedding makeup.

She is thrilled for her business adventures with her partner Nicole Nuyannes in hopes to grow and expand in the future. She is extremely grateful to be supported by her husband, son, and stepson. She is so excited to continue to share her love and passion for beauty with her clients!!

Jessica Wenner

Salon Manager / Social Media Specialist

Jess is Blink's first ever salon manager! Jess helps with the daily operations at the salon as well as working behind the scenes on our social media platforms and website.

Karly Cataudella

Esthetician

Karly is our newest lash tech at Blink. Ever since Karly was young she thought She wanted to be a nurse, so after graduating high school she went to nursing school for a year while working at the LGH ER. Karly ended up moving down to NC and getting her CNA certification, moving back to PA, and getting her job back at LGH. She ended up going back to nursing school and then decided to stop her medical journey all together to pursue esthetics.

 

She has always been interested in the beauty industry, but it was just 2 1/2 years ago she decided to take the jump into the esthetics world. So, Karly quit her nursing career dreams and enrolled in esthetics school. When she started esthetics school she was always looking forward to taking the lash class and knew she would fall in love with it.

 

Karly loves how customizable lashes are to every single client and loves how they enhance everyone’s beauty. After being a client of Nicole’s for over a year and falling in love with the lounge she is so excited to become a part of it and work with such a supportive group of ladies! 

When Karly's not working she's spending time with her husband. They just got married in September! She also loves snuggling and loving on her 4 year old dog, Buck.
