“When I dreamt of Prolong Lash, I wanted it to be a place where everyone thrived.”
My lash life journey began in 2006 when eyelash extensions were not even "a thing" in Australia. I had worked in corporate for 25 years and reached that point of burn-out.
A business trip to New York resulted in my discovery of eyelash extensions, and that was the beginning of my Lashing & Prolong Lash journey.
Like many lash artists, I started in the front room of my home in 2006, practicing on anyone that would allow me. The journey of learning to "Lash" is one that only Lash Artists can explain, and I experienced all our common challenges!
In 2008 I opened my first small salon, which marked the birth of Lash Design Studios – the first lash-specific salon in Australia at that time. Lash Design grew quickly, mainly through referrals. By 2012 we had outgrown our small salon and relocated to an 8-bed salon with a training facility on a well-known fashion strip in Melbourne. Our 15 Lash Artists worked on rotation 6 days a week and trained students once a week.
All Lash Artists will relate to that moment when you sit down to prepare your client and find they have clumping and build-up on their lashes. You want to cry and ask yourself, "How did they lose so many lashes in 3 weeks?", "How will I get this cleaned up and refilled before my next client?" That pressure is real!
In 2008 there were no cleansers on the market suitable for use with eyelash extensions. The creation of Prolong Lash Cleanser commenced when I commissioned a company to formulate a cleanser that was safe to use with cyanoacrylate-based glue, which would protect and extend the life of our client's
eyelash extensions and would help eliminate sticking & clumping.
Our Salon clients became enthusiastic volunteers, participating in testing and trials for over 18 months and providing feedback to help us "get the solution right." Prolong Lash™ Cleanser was branded, packaged, and officially launched in our salon in 2009. Within months we noticed that our clients started presenting for in-fills at 3 weeks with at least 60% of their extension still on and reduced clumping. Our clients
loved the cleanser, and our Lash Artists could now get on with their art of applying lashes without stress.
By 2022 Prolong Lash had Re-seller Partners in over 85 countries worldwide!
Prolong Lash™ Cleanser is truly oil-free and effective in protecting the natural lash health and prolonging the life of the extensions.
Protect your natural lash growth cycle, while reducing the risk of follicle infection.
Using Prolong Lash Cleanser twice daily is proven to extend the lifespan of eyelash extensions.
Eyelash artist have less clean up to do at infills, leaving them more time to apply new lashes.
