Loving using Bronsun Hybrid tints at the moment, to create some really striking brows. The WOW brow includes mapping, bronsun and precision waxing and tweezing to create a sharp defined brow to a greater or lesser degree depending on what you're after.
I decided to go with Sienna X for my spray tan service. Winner of best tan 12 years in a row is impressive! I had one recently with the very talented @getbeautiful_shepperton and it was perfect 7 days later (I don't wash!)
I do have Bondai Sands too.
Come for an Express Tan if you'd rather not sleep in it.
Special offer of £25 until the end of May. Increasing to £30.
Not long to go now for this fabulous event which is on Saturday 23rd April in Manchester.
A full day of masterclasses. Grow your lash mastery, your business acumen and all round confidence as you soak up a whole heap of knowledge from an array of masterclasses. Rub shoulders with a whole host of like minded lash geeks. Make new friends. Put faces to insta handles and just have a ruddy good time....plus you get to boogy in top Manchester club at the end of the day.
Tickets are still available and you can snap one up witn a 10% discount code Joanna10. Purchase at
I've just run my presentation through and cannot wait to share it with you. Hope to see you there.
OMG I'm a fully signed up member of the YY lashes fan club as of today. I bought two mixed trays from Franke @eyelashexcellence ages ago and it's just never been the right time to use them. Until now and wow, just wow. Look at this lush set.
Clients why would you need them? If you like classics but would like a little more oomph these could be mixed. Also if you don't like to lie still too long but want 100% coverage these are quicker for me than handmade volume. I love them 💗
Lash artists why would you use them? Well the pics speak for themselves but seriously they are so fast. This is just about 100% coverage and took me 2 hours including a wee/tea break. Great news if you're only trained in classics, want more volume in your sets but don't want to use premade fans. These apply just like classics and look like volume...genius!
These are 0.05 mm and CC curl. The only thing is the shortest length is 8mm but it's easy enough to cut them at the base to make shorter lengths.
it's always hectic doing a tandem lash lift but it's great fun. This mother and daughter-in-law duo both wanted a lashlift but this saved them a little time as it's about 30 to 45 minutes quicker and they both get to lie down and relax together! 💜❤️🧡
I had a lovely parcel today and in it were lots of goodies but this beautiful trophy in picture 1. This was me pushing me to enter a brow comp #browslayer2022 @undergroundbeautyvault run by the ever so lovely @samantha_janee_ Blow me down I won 2nd place which is such a buzz! Thank you judges.
The point of this post is to encourage you to push yourself, even if you don't truly believe in yourself - you will never know what you can do until you force yourself to push a little. I never saw myself being awarded for brows but there you go...I took a chance and funny thing is I did it with 10 mins until the deadline! Imagine if I hadn't pushed 🤣 Take a leap! Go on! What's the worst that can happen.
I've pushed myself all the way through my beauty journey and it's the reason that it has been so - beautiful 🧡
The second pic is a vid from my studio wall. Those are some awards and courses I've taken in my 12 years in the industry and pic 3 is another 30 from my filing cabinet. My walls just aren't big enough!👄👄👄
I have spent ££££££'s on trainings and competition entries and events. Every penny has been worth it💸💲💰🪙
Students please don't think your first lash course with me is IT. I'm just the gateway. It's up to you how far you want to go and how far you are prepared to push but it's all there for the taking.
enter competitions? 💯 yes
attend events? 💯 yes
take more trainings 💯 yes
Is it ever too late to stop learning?
Events wise coming up:
If you are a brow artist there are still a few tickets left @undergroundbeautyvault for 7th May in London. Cannot wait for this!
If you are a lash artist there are some tickets left for @lashtopia in Manchester 23rd April. I'm presenting at this one.
@Lashfest is in London and you can still get a ticket. I'm MC for the day and presenting. That's 15th May. It's going to be insane 🤩🤩🤩
And also on 15th May @worldlashuniversity in Birmingham. This is always a great event. There are some tickets left. I wish I could go but I'm at Lashfest.
I do have a 50% off ticket for this one if you'd like it. DM me
I love this handmade volume set on my niece @willowindiaa
I can't remember what competition I did them for but I didn't place. But what did I get? Was it a waste of time and effort? Hell no!! I grew as a lash artist, I got some beautiful photographs and had the great pleasure of not being rushed and really being able to sit into my role as a lash ARTIST rather than that of a COMMERCIAL lasher - always rushing!
Nothing wrong with bread and butter commercial lashing but it's not until you do a comp that the true artist gets to shine.
If you haven't done one before. Push yourself this year and watch your artistry blossom and grow.
I just love what I'm able to create on this client with M curls.
Firstly in pic 2 you can see how diddy and fine her lashes are AND this is without her lower lashes tucked away so actually less than they look here. Asian women have around 20% less lashes and tend to be straighter and finer - however, in young women they tend to be keratin rich which also means that despite their appearance they can be strong and this clients lashes are testament to this. Nearly 3 weeks retention in pic 3. Amazing really.
The M Curl is perfect for her shaped lid. The straight leg allows that beautiful curl to just pop out from underneath as you can see in pic 4 to great effect. Just check out those inner corners 😁
My client also takes great care of her lashes and washes them regularly. The fans are always still pretty and fluffy. Not closed up and stuck together with eyeliner and flotsam and jetsam. In short, this infill was a dream to do. An absolute pleasure 💙❤💜🧡
Style, elegance, easy to wear, suit everyone and just put that spring in your step and sparkle in your eyes.
They can be full too. Just make sure your lash tech is into using all the layers and getting 100% coverage near as dammit.
How full they look obviously depends on how many natural lashes you have and how densely populated your lash line is. Classics don't hide any gaps as well as volume lashes can but other than that they are the same - from hardiness, styling and enhancement of your features to comfort and application duration (ish)
I don't charge less for classics at Flashlash as I charge by time. So a 2 hour set of volume or classics is the same.
I still have availability in Feb and if you are looking to be a regular; my books can take 2 more atm.
The next person to book a full set in Feb, using code FEB plus like and share this post too will get £20 off!!
Your wish is my command here at Flashlash. Some clients like to have a silent appointment and relax into their lash nap. Others need a little catch up or maybe need my thoughts on something they are dealing with...what is said in the sanctum of my studio stays in my studio and believe me; I've heard it all. Others request a cat nap on the lap. It can be very therapeutic to have a little warm furry creature snuggled up and just look at Zebedee here - nose down in blanket fluff, full camo! Not sure who's happier, my client or him (blanket washed obvs to protect animal sensitive clients and all the covid malarkey)
I love to tend to my clients' individual needs - lashes, comfort, emotional 🧡💛💙❤
Due to various reasons I have 2 rare spaces for regular lash clients. My books don't open up very often but they are right now!!
What is a regular lash client? Someone who comes for a full set and them comes back every 2-3 weeks for an infill. You can choose the same day, same time or select adhoc from my diary on my booking app.
I have good availability the week of Jan 17th if you want to get cracking but also if you want to take advantage of my January 15% discount for new clients or existing clients trying new treatments.
Watch the video of one of my classic lash sets coming together 💜
"I fold the good old days up and place them in my back pocket for safe keeping, draw the match, cremate the unnecessary, the light of the fire warms my toes. I pour myself a glass of warm water to cleanse myself, for January, here I go, stronger and wiser into the new"
My lovely sister in law sent me this excerpt today. It's so lovely.
I actually am not a massive fan of NY but I'm alright once I get a few days into January.
Hopefully this one will be better? I knew that 2021 would be shit. I wasn't wrong 🤣
Excited to say Jemima is joining my team as our resident MUA (literally!) She is fully qualified. Trained by @makeup_academyuk and is doing an introductory offer of full makeup for £20 (+£5 with strips) whilst she builds up her portfolio.
