We’re bringing back our Business Spotlight Project! To start it off this month we are shining our business spotlight on Lashing Out Luxury Lounge! Located along historic Alexander Way – 5116 48 St. in downtown Red Deer, this established studio boasts a very classy and modern atmosphere while offering a very welcoming and comfortable space. We were happy to catch up with Kaely Langlois, co-owner of Lashing Out Luxury Lounge to get the scoop on this successful downtown business.
What is your business?
We are Lashing Out Luxury Lounge! We are a specialty lash and brow studio with some added aesthetic services.
When did your business open?
Lashing Out Luxury Lounge has been open for 8 years. Myself and my business partner worked here and were able to transition into ownership about two and a half years ago.
What makes your business unique?
We are the first specialty lash and brow studio to specialize in just lash extensions and brows in Red Deer.
We have very high industry-standard training for our staff, and we are also accredited to train. We take our training very seriously and it shows in the work we do, it sets us apart.
What are some products/services that you offer?
Our services include lash tinting, lash lifting, brow wax and tinting, henna brows, signature lash extensions, hybrid lash extensions, 2D volume extensions, 2 – 4 D volume extensions, 5 – 7 D volume extensions, mega volume extensions, derma-planing, facials, chemical peels, derma fillers, and Botox treatments.
Some products we carry in our building include bath products from Blackfalds, natural cleansers and detergents from Gull Lake, hair bows and baby items from Penhold, two clothing lines and scarves from Calgary, and tumblers from Penhold.
Why did you choose Downtown Red Deer as the location for your business?
We are centrally located and that works well because we have people that come from out of town, the north end and the south end. It’s nice to be right in the middle and its central for everyone. We remain downtown because we want to help in its continued growth and be a part of a thriving community.
What do you think makes Downtown vibrant?
I love how they are starting to bring local art into the downtown such as the big mural that is displayed on the building right beside us. I really like the market and the food trucks that happen in the summer.
We are also a part of the Adopt-a-Planner program and we feel it has really helped make the front of our business visually appealing. I think all the programs offered by the DBA are helping bring the downtown back to life. There is a little feel about it, and I think the DBA is really trying to help create positive change downtown.
I love Downtown Red Deer because… It’s the hub of Red Deer! Everything is central and you can find a little bit of everything here. There is good food, shopping and everything you need is here!
Be sure to stop into this unique little studio soon and see for yourself the talent and excellent customer service that make up the team at Lashing Out Luxury Lounge!

COVID can’t stop CAFF
Central Alberta Film Festival to proceed in Red Deer in partnership with CMHA
Screenings and Awards Show to take place in-person at Festival Hall in Red Deer with help from Canadian Mental Health Association
The 2020 Central Alberta Film Festival (CAFF) will take place onsite at Festival Hall in Red Deer October 14, 15, 16, and 17. Canadian Mental Health Association will run the box office and earn a portion of the ticket sales.
“The partnership between CMHA and CAFF is a perfect fit,” says Ranjit Mullakady, President of CAFF. “CMHA has volunteers in place, and CAFF has a way to contribute to CMHA fundraising.”
Organizers are preparing to offer an in-person festival experience in a safe environment, allowing for social distancing.
Tickets will be sold for blocks of time instead of individual films. Screenings will run 6:00-9:00 p.m. on October 14 15, and 16. Screenings will run 12:00-2:00 and 3:00-5:00 p.m. on October 17, followed by an awards show at 6:30-9:00 p.m.
A variety of short and full-length films will be shown during the blocks without intermission.
“People can take breaks throughout the screenings if they need to, with social distancing protocols in mind,” says Mullakady.
Seating will be at tables this year, so groups of attendees will remain socially distant from other groups.
“We’ve always known the Festival would go on, even with worries about COVID-19,” says Mullakady. “We have a backup plan if things change. The festival will go on.”
CAFF is prepared to go forward as a drive-in event if government regulations about indoor gatherings change.
