" I have always had a natural ability and love for beauty. Knowing that the beauty industry is a highly saturated market, after I matriculated, I decided to make the practical choice and started studying towards my B.Com Accounting degree. Whilst studying I started working part time at a tanning studio. It was there that I discovered eyelash extensions. I decided that doing lash extensions was a great way of getting my foot in the door with regards to beauty but with it being more a more specialised treatment. I enrolled in a course through Lasting Lashes in 2008 - I was one of the first few trained in Johannebsurg to start offering lash extensions as a treatment. As lashes became my passion my BCom degree went from being full time to part time as I focused on building up a client base. Once I completed my degree, lashes became my life.
I felt the need to develop another skill and in 2013 I qualified in permanent makeup through Premier Permanent.
Being a complete perfectionit and stickler for attention to detail, I ensure that my work and the work of my therapists is always of the highest quality. There are so many salons these days and so many people do the same treatments.I have worked hard to develop a good name in the industry and I surround myself with staff that envision the same values and goals as myself.
At Allure Lashes and Aesthetics we treat all our guests as a priority. Our individual and specialised service ensures that all of our guests leave feeling important and happy."
Owner, Lash Tech & Permanent Makeup Specialist
" In 2015 I was given an opportunity from Louise to come and work for her, knowing I had a very limited background with beauty (having started a course in hairdressing but not completing it) and coming more from an administration background, I had to take the chance and run with it. I began by doing a nail course . Louise noticed how I would sit and watch her do lashes, she approached me and said that she was going to train me. Scared and nervous, thinking I could never do this, I went for it. I did in-house training with Louise and subsequently got certified through Vogue Lashes - now known as Lovella - I was so proud of myself the day I got my certificates. Four years later I can honestly say that my choice of career is the best choice I could have ever made. Not only do I get to do what I love everyday, I get to make people feel beautiful and happy, in turn seeing that makes me happy . I have learnt so much about the beauty industry in terms of skin products, nails and permanent makeup that I can't wait to learn more.
In my spare time I love spending time with my family . Besides my love for lashes I also have a great love for baking. I am outgoing, love to laugh and enjoy being around good company."
In 2013, I decided that I wanted to make a change in my life and enrolled at Hydro International College. It was there that I studied to do nails and lashes.
Once I completed my course I worked at a few salons gaining experience before I began at Allure Lashes and Aesthetics.
I began at Allure Lashes as a nail tech, I took on a keen interest in lashes as I would watch the other therapists doing lashes as I did nails on their clients. Louise saw my enthusiasm for this and trained me further with the lashes.
