Q: What are your favorite lash products to work with and why?
A: I love the Ultra Bond Adhesive because during my 6 years of lashing I have never heard of any complaints from clients for allergic reactions. It has ability to stick each individual eyelash extension to client’s natural lash and provides a strong bond in no time, yet it is gentle enough for people with sensitive eyes.

And during my trial period as a trainer, I was given the opportunity to learn so much from the best, which is Mary Jane Dana herself, the Co-Founder of Lavish Lashes.
Q: What do you think sets Lavish Lashes apart from other eyelash extension companies?
