I have participated and placed in lash competitions and I have been privileged to judge a number of Lash Competitions since 2018.
I have written a phenomenal number of articles about lashes, business, wellbeing and safety that have been published in professional lash magazines such as Lash-Ed and Lash Inc. along with pictures of my work. I have been featured in Scratch magazine, Professional Beauty magazine, Salon News, BBC Points West TV news and BBC Radio Bristol, Lash Boss Radio podcast and Life of KG podcast.
I’m the creator and editor of Lash-Ed magazine that launched in April 2018 where I get to work with some of the most amazing artists and influencers in the business. This virtual writing team helps lash stylists to develop their skills and enhance their businesses.
My primary purpose for training and writing is simple. I am passionate about raising the standards in the eyelash extension industry to protect its reputation and our clients so they receive the very best service.
I am the MD and co-organiser of the biggest Lash and business learning event in the UK. It’s called World Lash University and it encompasses an international Online Lash Competition and Business Awards. The next event is planned for Sunday 17th May 2020 at the Belfry near Birmingham.
You can probably tell that I am passionate about helping people. In addition to supporting colleagues with their lash careers, I am a guest speaker for a Women’s Development Programme that enables women to give and receive more from their lives and careers. I also facilitate work/life balance coaching and menopause awareness raising for self-help along with employers moral and legal duties to their age diverse workforce.
I’m the MD and creator of Behind the Mask that offers free online domestic abuse awareness training for the hair and beauty industry. This is designed to help them spot the signs that a client (or colleague) may be experiencing it and how they can help in the best way.
Now you know a little more about me, please feel free to contact me for amazing lashes and professional training! I look forward to seeing you soon.
