What inspired you to become an educator?
What inspired me to become an educator is my 6 years of experience in the business. Lashing has tremendously changed my life for the better. I've gained financial security, perfected a skill I can do anywhere in the world, meet amazing people every day and I can share that with the new generation of lash artists. My transition from lash artist to educator came about earlier this year 2023 as I'm ready to embark on a new chapter/journey of my lash career.
