First of all, I feel I need to formally introduce myself. I am Kourtnie, co-owner of Lash Essential. I am a Momma, a wife, an entrepreneur, goofy, and a little crazy. I tend to obsess over any little thing that catches my attention. I HATE leaving thing's un-done. My mind will be constantly racing in bed at night, making a list of every possible thing I need to do the next day. I have this thirst for knowledge that I just can not seem to satisfy. And with the ever changing world of lashing, I am always obsessing!! I am a dreamer, and I believe anyone can do anything they truly set their mind to! I have been in the lash industry since February 2013. I am a Master Esthetician, but lashes have completely stolen my heart. I have a beautiful 4 year old little girl named Nayvee, and a handsome hubby named Brock. We love movie cuddles, snow cones, and random dance parties. I feel I need to go into these random detail's because these are the thing's that make up who I am!
Now that I have given you a little glimpse into who I am, and what I am all about.. let me introduce you to Lash Essential. We were established in May of 2015. We have been blown away by the growth of our baby as we have watched it grow! I say we, because I have an amazing, and talented business partner and friend. Her name is Becca! She has been my little guiding light through my whole lash journey. (We will do a separate post and give her the introduction she deserve's!) I have known Becca for about 4 and a half years. She started out as my lash artist, turned into my friend, became my mentor and then grew into my business partner! She is the one who originally taught me classic lashes, back when I really didn't know what I was getting my self into. Since then, I have challenged my self on a daily basis to grow and improve. I strayed away from these amazing product's, not sure if I could believe Becca when she said they really were the best. I have tried and failed. I have wasted so much money, and have had one or two nights end in tears because I wasn't sure of my self in this industry.
I then, at this point, had realized the error of my way's and questioned why I had caused my self so much grief. I went back to product's I knew with out a shadow of a doubt were the best. At this point, Becca was just selling these product's on a really small scale for about 5 year's. She was doing training's by referral's only. She loved the product and so she worked with the manufacturer to be able to purchase them for her self and pass on to her student's. After all of my attempt's and failure's with other product's, I was convinced that these product's needed to be available to more artist's. Becca and I had, had too many conversation's about wanting to start this company. We started brainstorming, and putting things into motion. We busted butt for a year to rigorously test product's, to build up our inventory, to write our manual's, and to create top notch training's. With all of this... Lash Essential was born!!
We want to thank you for joining us on our wonderful journey. We pride our self's on offering the best of the best. Our product's are top quality, and our training's are un-like any other. We are so-o excited for everything that 2016 has to come. We can not wait to share it all with you!!
