It brings us great joy to announce that five of our fantastic lash stylists have qualified for the finals of Australia’s first LIVE lash competition! Grace, Sabina, Cynthia, Leonie, and Isobel will compete in various styles and divisions at the Sunshine Pro Series on the 30th of July, which will take place at the Brisbane International Hair and Beauty Exhibition.
In order to proceed to the finals, our technicians had to select a model whose lashes they had impeccably applied and submit a number of full face, open and closed eye quality photographs to display their skill. Each technician spent hours on their application, selecting the right model, creating the best style, applying the lashes flawlessly and taking the perfect photo to capture their work!
The live finals will be judged by seven renowned Lash Masters from around the world, including Inna Kharlaomova and Tatiana Bilolovets from the Lash Art University in the Ukraine, Mariko Matsumoto from Marie Rush Lash Tokyo, Joy Crossingham and Katya Espinoza from Brisbane Lashes, Kimberley O’Beirne from Lash Vision Eleebana and Renee Gurney from Lash & Brow Professional. Technicians will be judged on the cleanness of their work, coverage of lashes, styling, symmetry, application, technique and overall look.
Winners who place first, second and third will receive extremely generous prize packs of lash products, which have been generously supplied by the event sponsors, Lash Joy, Lash Vision, Lash Collection, Lash and Brow Professional and Glamcor Professional.
Competition Director Joy Crossingham is counting down the days to the first live lash competition in the country stating, “it’s such a positive sign that the Australian lash industry is now progressing faster than ever before” and she “looks forward to undiscovered lash superstars getting the recognition they deserve”.
Lady Lash director Charlotte Creasey was delighted at the announcement of five Lady Lash technicians proceeding to the final stage of the competition.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have five of our very talented lash stylists go through to the finals. I know they all put a huge amount of effort into this, and that regardless of the outcome, they will do us proud in Brisbane!”
However she recognised that the competition won’t be easy.
“We know that the level of competition is going to be extremely high, and we are so excited about seeing the way that other lash stylists work, as well as being judged by some of the finest in the industry.
This competition is a fantastic initiative of Joy Crossingham and Brisbane Lashes, and something that I feel will really help to raise the standard of the eyelash extension industry in Australia.”
Winners will be announced on the 30th July.
