Our Story

The Faces of Eyeconic Lash Studio

Monika Ford


My passion for empowering women to feel confident, elegant, strong, and beautiful is what inspired me to follow my heart and immerse myself in the beauty industry.

I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Texas A&M University Galveston and my Masters Degree in Counseling from Texas Christian University. However, my lifelong appreciation for beauty and aesthetics motivated me to utilize my naturally creative skills in pursuit of a new path.

I truly found my calling as a state certified eyelash extensionist. Quickly, I excelled in the detail oriented work, creativity, and the style customization of eyelash extensions.

Through diligence and dedication, I have earned a strong foundation of professional training and accredited certifications since 2013 in both classic eyelash extensions and Borboleta Beauty volume eyelash extensions. My commitment to regularly complete continuing education courses allows me to stay on the cutting edge of the eyelash extension industry while constantly improving my craft.

As an eyelash extension enthusiast of 15 years, I am a true believer in the positive and practical benefits of having eyelash extensions myself. Eyelash extensions are the best beauty invention since lipstick!

The reason I decided to become a business owner is because I wanted to provide a healthy space and opportunity for other women to grow  professionally, financially, and be the best versions of themselves. The climb in my career as a lash artist was a humbling struggle, but I’m glad it happened because I learned invaluable lessons and it gave me the fire to make a change.

I decided I was going to make my own rules and make the lashing work place better with higher standards on all fronts.

I love to help and watch people grow and that means I like to invest in Eyeconic’s individual team members as much as I can. I try to create opportunities for them to reach their fullest potential. I’m not one to oppress other women or feel threatened by their successes or growth. I get my joy out of helping and watching others transform, evolve, and ascend into their unique greatness.  I always have. (Hence my counseling background and degree) I want to always be a source of care and mentorship as well as a safe person to talk to. If I can better a woman’s life and be a catalyst for her to thrive, then this makes it all worth it to me.

My role as a successful eyelash extension business owner with two prior Uptown Dallas locations has encouraged me to bring my skill set to the wonderful Fort Worth community. It is my sincere privilege to serve as your Elite Master Lash Stylist!

Leigh has a diverse background, with a passion for making others look and feel their best. After teaching high school for 10 years, Leigh decided to go down a different path, and chose to go into esthetics. She ran a successful solo practice for almost 10 years before shutting down amidst the pandemic. In her practice, she performed a range of services from all types of facials and skin treatments, to waxing, sugaring, and eyelash and brow services.

The timing was perfect as Caroline was ready to start working after settling in to her second semester of college.
