The Light Elegance Story

Light Elegance

Light Elegance began in 1999 in Eugene, Oregon. Lezlie McConnell owned and managed an upscale salon and her husband, Jim, was a polymer chemist working with polyurethane systems used in the wood products and transportation industries. Turns out it was a brilliant combination. Jim and Lezlie were always interested in how to make things better for their techs—how can the products they all used day in and day out be better? Safer? Economical? More appealing to clients?

The products that Jim and Lezlie created and tested (and tested) in the salon became popular with both the techs and the clients and the business grew. And grew. They took a risk, made a plan and began creating, manufacturing and selling Light Elegance beyond their own doors. Lezlie sold the salon and Jim left his position as a corporate chemist. And Light Elegance was born.

Here’s what worked then and still works now—Light Elegance nail products are odorless, easy to apply, and have strength and flexibility for full-sets and fills. Light Elegance also offers a wide range of non-yellowing products that can be applied to gels, acrylics, wraps and natural nails. Lezlie dreams up the colors each season and Jim goes to work making the formulas better than they were last year. It’s as simple—and as difficult—as that.

Now Light Elegance is sold around the world to nail techs that appreciate the quality of the formulations. In Australia Beautyworld Pty Ltd represents Light Elegance and has established a growing Light Elegance
community. Support and interaction for Light Elegance nail technicians is available via the Facebook group Light Elegance Nail Techs Australia – but don’t let the name fool you as it’s here that you’ll see work and tips from some of the world’s best Light Elegance users.
