Professional Beauty launches first-ever Lash Championships at PB North and PB Ireland

Professional Beauty is launching a new competition to find the UK and Ireland’s top lash artists.

The Lash Championships, which will make its debut on the show floor at PB Ireland (October 7–8) and PB North (October 21–22), will comprise three categories: Classic, Russian 3D Volume and New Volume.

For each category, there will be three divisions: Novice (for competitors who have up to 18 months’ industry experience), Professional (from 18 months to three years) and Expert (three years or more).

“These two-day competitions undoubtedly support our industry by providing lash artists opportunities for growth and success,” said competition director Heather Hughes, who has worked in the lash market for nine years. “It’s their chance to gain recognition in the industry, which can have considerable benefits for their businesses.”

Entries cost £50 for professionals and £15 for students. The entry deadline for the Ireland Lash Championships 2018 is October 4. Enter here.
