Nikki Hynek is the founder of the Pretty Lane and Dollup Beauty. You can find all of her Dollup Beauty products inside the beauty boutique here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and online. This makeup artist has blossomed into a stellar entrepreneur, utilizing her vision to help the beauty community and the Cedar Rapids community.
What is Pretty Lane?
"Pretty Lane is a place for all things beauty," says Nikki. Founder Nikki was selling her Dollup Beauty products originally all online and was missing the interactive portion of her business.
"I decided to open a space where women could come and learn how to do their makeup and experience beauty differently," says Nikki.
She explains that she wanted to create an effortless space for all women at different stages of their makeup journey. She had picked edited items for the storefront that are top of the line, fabulous products that she would use. With her expertise, she was confident that her consumers would enjoy these products as well.
This store is also for the beauty minimalists to feel comfortable. She wants these consumers to come in and experience beauty and makeup products in a whole new way—not overloading anyone with too many products, just her favorites. Nikki has curated a select group of collections, with you in mind.

Nikki explains, "We have a full spa menu but are doing it a different way." Nikki is changing the traditional spa experience. Pretty Lane intends to have spa guests come pre-appointment to sip on her pretty teas and mix essential oils. These essential oils will be personal to their spa experience. Nikki is hoping this interactive experience is one you'll never forget.
Not only do we sell Dollup Beauty in our retail-front, but we have products and brands ranging in bath and body, skincare, hair, accessories, tanning, and more—which, all these items are great for gifts! Everything in our pretty store has a purpose. These products are curated for customers varying from wanting to experiment with makeup and new products to a makeup artist/beauty guru. Also, in the Pretty Lane, they have giftable items.
The Pretty Lane is beyond thankful for the Cedar Rapids and Midwest community. "I love this area, I am from here, so it felt like a natural place to choose a for my first storefront," says Nikki. "And I said first, that's the keyword."
Nikki believes that Cedar Rapids is such a great supporter of trying new things and uplifting new and small businesses.
