Michelle is a professional makeup artist and eyelash and brow technician. Growing up in a home where makeup was referred to as ‘warpaint’ and efforts put into your appearance were viewed as a waste of time, Michelle would lock herself in her room for hours and practise different makeup looks based on her favourite sitcoms leading ladies.
On her 13th birthday, she was given a makeup session at Visage and it was there she first learned the basics of makeup application and technique. Her interest in cosmetics grew and over those teenage years became a local amateur model where she soaked up the skills to achieve different makeup artistic outcomes from fashion & bridal shows.
Her post-secondary school path led her to a dual diploma in Business-Marketing and Information Technology which landed her a corporate career for 21 years; always though, with her makeup brushes in hand ready to help any friends or family members with makeup applications when needed.
Proudly earning certifications from the Canadian Beauty College, Elegance London, and Foundations London LDNMUA, Michelle has finally tapped into her purpose to give you the very best.
Today Michelle owns and operates Primp Haus a beauty studio located in Thorndale On. The Studio offers makeup application and all things for your eyebrows and lashes. Michelle welcomes all into her inclusive space and whether you're looking to practise some self-love with a special treatment or booking regular beauty maintenance you will find your visit to be personalized and professional and leave feeling pampered and primped.
Primp Haus offers a safe and inclusive studio for eyelash and brow maintenance and sculpting and for makeup artistry.
We currently offer lash tint, lift, and extensions. Service for eyebrows includes lamination, tint and threading. We also sell Adoreyes which is a Canadian-made eyelash and brow conditioner to keep them growing and looking their best. Makeup application is available in the studio or on location (travel fees may apply). We use the best products available and are MAC-recognized artists.
Primp Haus offers a referral program and a customer loyalty program. Be sure to ask us about it at your next appointment!
Lash Lifting & Tinting:
This is an aesthetic service that uses a perm solution to 'lift and curl' natural lashes while darkening them using a tint. The effect is often referred to as 'semi-permanent mascara' and has the impact of making lashes appear longer and eyes appear wider. It allows you to skip the daily curling and use of traditional mascara. It lasts up to 8 weeks.
This procedure transforms your natural (but sometimes messy or unruly) brows into a gorgeous, uniform and full brow shape in under 30 minutes. This convenient and non-invasive procedure can last up to 2 months and eliminates the need for daily grooming of the eyebrows.
Eye Lash Extensions:
Using individual fibres (lashes), your natural lash is cleaned, primed and isolated, then the fibre is dipped in a small amount of adhesive and attached to your natural lash. Each mature lash will receive an extension, one by one and the finished look is a beautiful, thick, long lash line. No mascara or heavy eye makeup is needed for extensions.
Hair removal by threading has been around for thousands of years and originated in the middle east. It is the process of using cotton thread twisted against itself and rolled along the skin over unwanted hair. The thread picks up each unwanted hair and pulls it out. Threading removes short lines of hair, therefore enabling precision sculpting quickly. Think of it as the accuracy of plucking combined with the speed of waxing. There is no hot wax used, no risk of burns and no waste with threading.
Waxing is the process of hair removal from the root by using a covering of a sticky substance, such as wax, to adhere to body hair, and then removing this covering and pulling out the hair from the follicle. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different human hair growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic hair (called bikini waxing or intimate waxing), legs, arms, back, abdomen, chest, knuckles, and feet. At Primp Haus, we use exclusively premium hard wax which is gentle on the skin, less risk of burns and less waste.
Spray tanning involves standing in a tent like structure while an airbrush artist applies a mist solution to your body. The solution has ingredients including, dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which interacts with your own skin's chemistry to give it a more bronzed appearance. Spray tanning lasts up to 10 days and is a safe alternate to sun tans.
Bridal Make Up Application:
Bridal makeup application can be done on location or in our beauty salon in Thorndale ON. Using luxury products that have proven to meet bridal needs and look just as you would like it for your special day. Soft glam? Glowy skin? Coloured/heavier on the eyes? We have you covered.

"Primp Haus is my new go-to beautician spa for eyelash extensions in particular. Owner Michelle is great: very welcoming, friendly, and professional. Her studio space is bright and airy and is located right in the town of Thorndale.
Michelle is very precise with her applications and talks you through what she is doing while engaging you in conversation. She is eager to show you the final result, and she is diligent in following up to ensure all clients are satisfied with their results. I highly recommend Michelle at Primp Haus for all your beautician needs."
B. Roch, Thorndale
"I highly recommend Primp Haus. I am a man and had my eyebrows threaded, a lamination and dye as well as a lash tint and lift. Yes, a man had this done and I must say it looks amazing! The care and artistic attention to detail from Michelle were incredible. I’m now a repeat client and I can’t recommend her highly enough."
