Wink Your Eyes Salon

Latrice Pinkins, owner of WINK YOUR EYES, has run this premier salon in Louisiana that specializes exclusively in eyelashes since 2009. Before Latrice established this beauty brand she was a journalist. She attended Southern University and A&M College and worked her way up to being the Managing Editor of The Southern DIGEST, the campus newspaper. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Print Journalism she went on to receive her Master of Arts in Journalism/Public Relations. Latrice was ready for whatever Journalism had to offer. She had internships and employment with various news outlets including: The Advocate (Baton Rouge), NY Times, and Cumulus Media. Then one day she decided to do something different. Currently WINK has two locations, one in Baton Rouge and another in New Orleans. Latrice attributes much of her long standing success to her great working relationship with her sister, Drenica Pinkins, who serves as the company’s business manager.
