Bianca Cave – Hamilton

I was introduced to eyelash extensions around 8 years ago when a lovely friend offered to lash me (I was 4 months into 3 children in 3 years and didn’t even know what day it was, life was crazy!) She had to convince me as I hadn’t heard of them before but I am SO glad she did – I felt pretty for the first time in years! Which is why, about a year later and after much researching I chose to train with LashWorx – I wanted to help other woman feel great and also it was the perfect way to have an income while working around small kids. Lisa was amazing (she still is!) and really revved up my passion for the art of lashes. I have grown my business over the years and had the pleasure of lashing many wonderful women (and men!) and am now lucky enough to be a LashWorx trainer – I am so passionate about this industry and so grateful for everyone that has helped, educated and supported me along the way – I couldn’t imagine my life without lashes now!

Danielle McClelland – New Plymouth

I was working in retail when I decided I wanted to work for myself. I wanted to have a better work life balance and to spend more time with my kids. My lash journey started in 2016. From there I also trained in lash lifts and volume lashing with LashWorx. The training and support I received after my training really helped me a lot, which then led me to placing 3rd in my first NZ lash competition in 2017. Then 1st place in NZ lash competition 2018. My passion for lashing didn’t stop there. I’ve always been someone that believes a woman should always have the skills to be able to support herself, and create her own career success. I approached Lisa from LashWorx about being a trainer. From there I’ve taught students the skills of lashing, and tips on running a business. I love the connections I’ve been able to make through teaching and lashing. The clients that have turned into friends and the extra time I’ve been able to spend with my children while still being able to support my family financially. Lashing is not just my job it’s my love. I will continue to grow my career and I’m excited to do that along side LashWorx.
