Hi. Hello. I’m so happy to, well kind of, meet you. Oh, maybe I should tell you my name. Let’s start this again; Hi, I’m Vanessa. Welcome to The Lash Professional.
My passion for lash extensions began in 2006. This lash journey started all because I was intrigued that I could save my friends precious time by simply having them switch from strip lashes to eyelash extensions. My girlfriends and I would spend countless amounts of time trying to perfect the placement of those tricky lash strips. At times we thought we had found perfection in our application, but now looking back at photos, we weren’t even close.
During extensive research, probably while snacking, I came across eyelash extensions. What?! I could help my friends save time on their beauty routine by simply learning this super, duper, secret beauty service?! It wasn’t very popular during that time, so I naturally assumed it was a super, duper, secret beauty service. Anyway, goodbye lash strips, hello lash extensions.
I enrolled in beauty school and signed up for the very first eyelash extension course I could find. AND, I fell in love. I fell in love with lash extensions the first day of class. When I say fell in love, I mean that head over heels kind of love. The love that could be considered obsessive, but you label it as PASSION to make yourself feel better. I lashed, lashed, and lashed. It was all I could think about and all I could do.
My client list grew from my girlfriends, to girlfriends of girlfriends, to girlfriends of girlfriends of girlfriends. I quickly realized that not only was I able to save these women time, but I also was making them look and feel good. Their new, beautiful lash extensions made them feel pretty on the outside and our time together gave me an opportunity to make them feel pretty on the inside. I was hooked. Fine, now we can label it as an obsession. I was obsessed. This was my calling. I can make women feel good about their physical and inner being at the same exact time?! It doesn’t get better than that!!!
Because of lash extensions I have met the most fantastic women EVER. These women have changed my life in a tremendous way. Clients became close friends. Fellow lash artist became close friends. Actually, the label “close friends” doesn’t come close to doing our relationships justice. These women became my sisters. Yep, that’s it! SISTERS. We help each other get through the lows of life, celebrate the highs of life, promote each other, are kind to each other, accept each other, learn from each other and we love each other.
This passion, okay you’re right: obsession, was not just the best career choice; it was the best life lesson. Eyelash extensions taught me the value of sisterhood. Lash extensions made me rethink what society was teaching me and every women. Oh my gosh, we’re not here to be in competition with each other; we are here to lift each other, understand each other, and rise with each other. Yes, please.
Once I learned this life changing lesson, I wanted to share it with everyone! Why wouldn’t I?! I wanted other lash artist’s to be able to experience what I was feeling; to join the sisterhood movement. Well, it wasn’t a movement quite yet, but I knew, in my deepest heart, it would become one very, very soon. I strongly desired to spread the love that I was shown all day and everyday at “work”.
