About This Guide

A Note from Aleksandra


I was born an artist. All of my life, I have worked with my hands and have been intensely passionate about the world of colour, light, shape and beauty. I grew up on a farm in Poland, and searched for years to find something that enabled me to express this passion.

I attended the European Institute of Art and Design in Torino, Italy as the first step to my professional career as an artist. I studied fashion design, and eventually became a professional fashion designer.

I initially founded the first Permanent Makeup Studio in Ottawa, Canada in 2008. But I soon discovered that very few spas were offering eyelash extensions, something I personally fell in love with.

Though the demand for permanent makeup was high, the demand for eyelash extensions was astronomical. As soon as I hired and trained another technicians, they were fully booked within a few weeks.

But, over the years, things haven't always been rosy. More and more, I've noticed that unlicensed and untrained people are getting into eyelash extensions. On one hand this is great, but for consumers this can be a nightmare. I've seen it all, and finally decided to share my secrets in this guide, to give everyone the very basics of eyelash extensions.

Hopefully you will find it helpful, either as a consumer, or as a budding professional. If you're interested, I'm literally always hiring good people.
