Downtown Haverhill’s Design Her Eyes Relocating to Bradford Square

The team at Jill Lagasse’s Design Her Eyes is preparing to bring beauty across the bridge from downtown Haverhill into Bradford this spring. After two years at 62 Wingate St., the salon is relocating to a space double the size at the 3 Ferry St. former home of Papa Gino’s in Bradford Square, Lagasse tells WHAV.

With construction currently underway, Lagasse hopes to be open for business by early May and anticipates a “seamless” transition for her staff of five “lash artists” and their customers.

As a result of the revamp, Design Her Eyes plans to still prioritize eyelash extensions, tinting and eyelash lifts, and will also expand offerings to include massage, waxing and spray tanning. Prices range from $10 to $350. Lagasse explained the appeal of her beauty business to WHAV.

“I think it’s the way it makes people feel. I used to laugh when my clients would say it changed their life, but in reality, it saves a ton of time in the morning, and when you wake up, you just feel pretty,” Lagasse said. “It’s more about a feeling than the look, although the look is important.”

Eager to expand her business, Lagasse said moving into the Bradford Square centerpiece was a no-brainer. Taking over the space takes Lagasse—who lives in Andover—back to her childhood, she tells WHAV.

“It was like a unicorn popped out when I saw that ‘for rent’ sign. I kind of grew up there. My mom worked there I was young,” the salon owner remembers. “We lived on Laurel Ave., and we’d head over there after school. It was really a big part of my childhood.”
