I will apologise up front if the below comes across as a bit of a rant but I just couldn’t let this one go, something needed to be said and I hope since you’ve opened this you’ll read until the end.
So lately I’ve been liking and commenting on Instagram posts (nothing new there) But what is new is that I’ve started asking Lash Techs whether or not they are entering the Sunshine PRO Series Live Lash Competition.

So my background is Thai/Dutch and before I began in the Lash Industry I was running my own Fashion Clothing store in Fortitude Valley here in Brisbane. Things were going great right up until around 2008 when the GFC hit and then business got really slow so I decided to take a holiday and visit my family in Thailand and at the same time thought I’d do an Eyelash Extension course while I was there.

Last night was full of excitement for us Lashers here in Australia and New Zealand as it was the announcement of the winners of the Australian and New Zealand Lash Championships for 2016!!
Months of preparation went to organising the competition and the sponsors from Enchanted SPA and Lashworx along with the all the organisers and judges did a fantastic job of bringing it all together.

Eyelash extensions are actually semi-permanent eyelashes that are applied to each natural lash individually to create the most natural-looking lashes possible. Eyelash extensions are different from strip false eyelashes because unlike you glueing the strip and applying them onto the skin to your lash line, a professional Lash Stylist will apply one eyelash extension to each…

Also known simply as volume lashes, we’re going for volume rather than length by applying two to eight extensions onto one single natural eyelash, known as the feathering technique. We use only super fine extensions, typically 0.05mm to 0.07mm diameter in either Faux Mink or Silk lash fibres that won’t damage your natural lashes. The final…

With Eyelash Extensions now the leading segment of the beauty industry here in Australia with an estimated 2 million (and growing rapidly) self confessed “Lash Addicts”, there has never been a better time to become a qualified Lash Stylist.

Since opening one of Australia’s first dedicated Eyelash Extension salon’s over 7 years ago I never would have thought that Lash Extensions would become so mainstream. It really has become a “must have” of so many women these days.

Compared to classic lash extensions, where you could only SAFELY attach one eyelash extension to each natural lash, Russian Volume Lashes (also known as 2D – 8D lashes) breaks through that limitation by having anywhere from 2 to 8 super fine extensions applied to a single natural eyelash, SAFELY.
This has only been made possible thanks to recent technological advancements.

So you’ve decided to learn volume lashing! Here are 3 of the biggest mistakes lash stylists make… (and how you can avoid them!).
This is where it all starts and unfortunately too many stylists do not research their options for Volume training as well as they should and often end up making their decision based on price. Choosing a training course because it is the cheapest will only end up costing you more in the future.
