More about Rex & Margie…

Amazing Lash Studio, the franchisor of the nation’s largest and fastest growing eyelash extension brand, recently announced the opening of a new studio in Peoria, Arizona, owned and operated by Margie and Rex Bahm. The Bahms come to the brand with an impressive and esteemed franchise background. Margie Bahm is a tenured professional with over 20 years in sales, management, marketing and employee placement at Mars PetCare Division. “I have had a wonderful career with a great company, but I am now ready to move from big business to small business,” she says. “I have been getting lash extensions for several years and I watched my stylist grow her business from one room to a building! In June of 2017 I had my lashes done at an Amazing Lash Studio and I instantly fell in love with the environment and concept and, after much due-diligence, knew I was ready to open my own studio.” Rex Bahm has been at Right Toyota for over 10 years and is currently the Used Car Director. He could not be more supportive and comments, “I’ve seen my wife work hard her entire career but her level of excitement on this new business is over the top.”
