The London Lash you know and love is officially ranked in the top 200 female led businesses in the UK 🎉🥳
Did you know though, that LLP started out on eBay? That's right, our founder and Director Hanna Putjato built London Lash from scratch after deciding that working in a pie factory wasn't really what she wanted in life!
Hanna worked in a salon in London and eventually grew a big enough clientele to open her own salon - at the time called Lady Lash - but was being asked multiple times per day if she would teach people the Russian Volume techniques she was using in her work - at the time, Russian Volume was VERY new to the UK and wasn't widely taught at all.
Hanna left the day to day of her salon to the girls she'd hired since opening the salon in Victoria and started putting asking if she could train for a number of UK lash schools, but they all turned her down. Not one to be put off by any kind of setback, Hanna started writing her own training manuals, and looking at sourcing training kits. As it turns out, creating her own kits was the best option, but that can get expensive...
Hanna borrowed a bit of money and bought her first batch of products. Not content on just offering courses, Hanna set out to make sure her students always had somewhere they could get high quality, reliable lash supplies.
Orders started coming in, and Hanna migrated her shop from eBay over to a proper website where she could sell courses and products all in one place. She rented a storage unit to act as a warehouse and scheduled daily collections so that she could ship all over the world quickly and effectively, without waiting in long lines at the post office every morning!
London Lash grew and grew, and stands before you today a totally different picture from where we started! Now, we have customers and students in more than 50 countries all around the world, have been featured in newspapers and lash magazines in multiple countries, and have won numerous awards for our products and services!
We couldn't have done it without you, the customer, and we cannot wait to educate, provide high quality products, and inspire the next generation in the years to come!
