Winners of Professional Beauty’s 2019 Lash Championships revealed
Talented lash artists from across the country took home top awards and gained industry recognition at Professional Beauty London’s Lash Championships 2019.
The two-day competition, which took place at PB London on February 24–25, saw artists put their skills to the test in three extensions styles – Classic, Russian Volume and New Volume – and each category had different divisions (Novice, Professional and Expert), so amateur and seasoned pros alike could take part.
Competition director Heather Hughes presented the winners with trophies, while second and third place were awarded certificates.
This is the first year the competition has taken place at the Professional Beauty London show, having successfully launched at PB North in Manchester last year.
The aim of the championship is to support the growing lash industry and shine a spotlight on the attention to detail required to be at the top of the game.
