Influencing the Industry

Each business and industry has its own humble beginnings – take London Lash as a prime example. It all started in 2014 with a dream and determination. Our founder Hanna Putjato, a skilled and experienced Lash Artist, realised the importance of sharing knowledge and education with other Lash Technicians. With a small social media following, she began to grow and educate others by showing exceptional skill and passion for eyelash extensions. Experiencing rejection and pushback, Hanna took matters into her own hands and created London Lash with the ambition to be a leader in lash education and acceptance of Lash Artists of all levels, genders and backgrounds. To read more about Hanna’s full journey and get inspired, check out her story here.

Business Success

Women in any industry experience rejection and belittlement at some point in their journey, even in the 21st century. Hanna took these setbacks as inspiration and incentive to fill the gap which she saw as an important opportunity to educate other Lash Artists. As you too take on your journey towards success, experiencing setbacks should be your motivator and drive towards success. After all, women have been the backbone of the lash extensions world since it began, from incredible Lash Artists, to loyal clients.

Taking the Next Steps

Once you know you’re ready to take the first steps towards entering the world of lashes, be prepared to broaden your mind and educate yourself as much as you can. The ever evolving lash industry will take you to unimaginable heights, but you must be willing to grow and learn with the times. Taking one Classic Lashes course is great, but to be great, you must gather as much knowledge and practice as possible. Not only will this make you an experienced Lash Tech, but it will show your future clients your dedication and education when it comes to lash artistry.
