Confessions of a Lash Geek Blog

So this is my Blog "Confessions of a lash geek", as the owner of Essential Beauty a self confessed lash geek. I hope to impart my knowledge and expertise to help you get the best from your lash extensions or gain knowledge as a lash tech.

I started my lash journey at the beginning of 2010 when lash extensions were still relatively new to the beauty world. I continue to take courses and mentoring sessions to ensure I am upto date with lastest within our industry.

A little bit about me if you dont know me already, I Deb I live in Washington with my partner Andy (the one who brings the coffee), my daughter and my 2step children. We also have 3 dogs Bruce, Hamish and Millie. So life is as hectic outside the salon as it is inside. I'm really lucky my family are supportive as I spend alot of time either lashing, talking about lashes, watching videos of lashes, reading about lashes you get the idea lol.


What sets Essential Beauty, Washington apart from other Eyelash Extension salons.

About us.

Here at Essential Beauty, Washington we have specialised in Eyelash Extensions for nearly 8 Years. 

Deb has taken numerous courses ran by many different companies over the years and gained her Master Eyelash Extension Technician qualification in 2014.

Because we are so passionate about what we do, we spend many hours making sure we are as up to date with different techniques and products as possible. Deb is involved in the testing of many products before they are available to other Lash Technicians.

We in-house train all our technicians and we do not class our technicians as fully qualified until they have served at least 3 years.

Deb is also an experienced trainer of other Lash Technicians and offers mentoring for those wanting to develop and expand their expertise.

Why we differ.

Over the years we have come across some horrendous eyelash extensions done by un-qualified lash technicians.

Improper isolation of the natural lashes, using lash extensions that are too long, too heavy or the incorrect curl can all cause damage to the natural lashes. Meaning they will shed sooner than normal or possible break off leaving gaps and damaged lashes. 

For this reason we do not infill eyelash extensions from other salons, because we can't guarantee the quality of the lash extensions already applied or be sure of the products they have used.

Trying to infill incorrectly applied lash extensions is pretty much impossible and will give a very poor finished result, because we want to maintain the integrity of the work we produce we dont offer infills from other salons.

What we offer our clients:

Different levels of Lash Technicians based on experience which is reflective in the price the client pays

On going training and development of our technicians to offer the latest products and best service we can.

Educating our clients on the best way to look after their eyelash extensions and products to help clean and maintain their lashes.

A friendly environment, we pride our selves on a down to earth everyone is welcome salon. 

Online booking service meaning clients can book your appointments when is suitable to them 24/7  you can find our booking details here.
