6. What is your favorite part about doing eyelash extensions?
The best part about doing lash extensions is the transformation in clients that we as lash artists are able to facilitate. When women come to us, they most likely are looking for a way to make their life a little easier and make themselves feel a bit better than they already do. What they walk away with is new confidence within themselves, knowing that what they bring to us made those lashes happen, and the lashes are just there to open their eyes to a new perception of true beauty. Of course saving time spent in front of a mirror altering our faces & sleeping in longer is life changing as well!
7. What is your favorite style of eyelash extensions and why?
My personal favorite style of lash extensions is mega volume, and I love a natural sweep as it suits pretty much any face and personal style that one may favor. Mega volume lashes are extremely versatile and so much fun to work with! With mega volume lashes, the super thin diameter of each extension allows for every individual preference and lash professional recommendations to both be satisfied. Being that the natural lashes of our clients are sometimes damaged from other lash enhancing products, it’s important to be able to work with client expectations and mega volume is a fail proof way to do that. Keeping in mind that natural lash health is always the first priority, we are able to give clients a beautiful set of lashes with mega volume that will never compromise their natural beauty & health.
8. What is your funniest lashing story?
Lashing a client while she was breast feeding turned out to be quite an experience unlike anything else. Mom was obviously more than ready for a break and some “me time” but dad wasn’t ready to take their baby boy alone yet, so my client asked if she could just feed the baby while we lashed, and I happily agreed.. because who doesn’t love a quiet sleepy newborn baby, right?! About 30 minutes into our lash session, baby started getting the tummy rumbles and mom knew what time it was so she called dad to come grab him before a mess was made. Well as soon as dad came to save the day, baby boy showed dad that you’re never truly ready for anything and made a mess all over the bathroom, himself and dad. My client got a call from the bathroom and we both ran in to save the boys from further damage, when he ended up peeing all over my clients face, completely destroying all the lash work we had done. While mom ended up spending even more alone time getting her lashes fixed, dad took baby and surely realized that parenting is something no one is ever ‘ready’ for!
9. Where are you from? when did you move to Las Vegas?
I was born and raised in Las Vegas! While I’m so grateful for everything this place is, meeting so many people from around the world has also inspired me to see more of it for myself.
