THE LUSHLASH TEAM
I am the Owner and Director of the Lushlash Hair & Beauty Salon, Lushlash Training Academy and the LL Lashes product line. I have been doing lash extensions since 2015 and have been a qualified teacher since 2017. I began lashing as I wanted a career that would work around my two small children. It did exactly that and it was the best decision I have ever made. I practised every single day for hours a day until I could perfect my skills. I love nothing more than taking my time making perfect fans and creating a mega volume full set with full coverage. My passion above all is teaching and sharing my knowledge with the hundreds of students I have the privilege of teaching on a weekly basis. I can honestly say I love every bit of what I do and if this is work…I am living the dream!
CEO / Director
I’ve been qualified in lash extensions since 2017 and have since qualified in a variety of other lash, brow and beauty treatments.
I love to create real thick volume lashes and a perfectly curved lushlift. So much so I went on to train to become an educator and have not looked back.
When I am not at work I am at the pub, not just any pub but my own pub! In 2021 myself and my business partners opened a pub and whilst my life is busy, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’ve been qualified in lash extensions since 2018 and love nothing more than creating a nice fluffy set of Russian lashes. Since joining the team I have also trained in lash lifts, henna brows, brow lamination, waxing and tinting.
I enjoy being part of salon life, and have a great team of girls working alongside me. In my spare time I do love a cheeky gin and a good night out! A girly night out and a gin in hand makes me one happy lady!
I have been a Lash Artist since 2017 and this has by far been my best ever job choice. I trained with the Lushlash Training Academy and never looked back. I now love nothing more than to create a nice full set of lashes and a perfectly curved Lushlift. I loved doing lushlifts so much that I decided to train further and since 2018 I have been teaching alongside my colleagues in the Lushlash Training Academy. I am also trained in waxing and taming those brows is very much a guilty pleasure.
When I am not over in Lushlash Witham with the team doing treatments or training I am at the pub, not just any pub but my own pub. Fun fact, in 2021 I opened up a pub with my business partner and whilst life is busy, I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Advanced Lash Artist
I have been a qualified Lash Artist since 2018 and have since trained in Lushlifts and waxing. I always loved beauty but never had the courage to pursue my dream. I then joined the Lushlash Training Academy and completed my first of many courses and never looked back. I absolutely love what I do.
Creating full sets and a smile on my clients face is exactly why I chose this profession and I am lucky to have built a lovely client base at the salon.
In my spare time I love socialising, eating out and I spend a lot of time with my niece and nephew whom I adore!
Debby Strode Smith
I am a qualified Nail Technician. I pursued nails for the first time back in 2003 and on and off whilst my children were small. I began doing nails again full time when my children were older in 2016 and I now love working in a salon environment with all the girls. I do both gel and acrylic and in my spare time I love getting creative with my side business with resin also.
I’ve been obsessed with hair since I was little, my mum and I were always coming up with new styles for school. I’ve been fully qualified for 4 years now and in that time my career has taken me all across England, Italy and Spain.
I also run my own online business where I crochet toys in my spare time and I love to be creative. I love working in a busy salon environment and making people feel great about themselves.
I began my career as a Saturday girl at 15, 6 months later I took on a hairdressing apprenticeship, qualified in my level 2 and 3 hairdressing and have been qualified since 2018. I love being creative in every way. The best part of being a hairdresser is giving my client’s that makeover experience and making them feel good. In my spare time I also have my own personalised flower business and I am a foodie so I LOVE going out for dinner.

Junior Lash Artist
I’m a mummy to my beautiful daughter Aaliyah. The main reason I chose to train as a lash technician was because it was so flexible around my little girl and I wanted to try something different and learn a new skill. I have been a qualified lash artist since 2019 and I absolutely love it. My favourite thing to do is Russian volume lashes and I love to see clients happy with the finished result. I’m also trained in B12, Aqualyx, Henna and Highly Defined brows. I really love what I do and when I am not working I am spending time with my family.
Junior Lash Artist
I joined Lushlash in 2020 on a part time basis and have not looked back. I love creating wispy sets of lash extensions and love being creative. I also have a passion for brows and in 2021 completed the highly defined and brow lamination courses.
I love art and often paint and enjoy a cocktail or 2 with friends in my spare time.

Shipping Manager & Product Administrator
I joined Lushlash Witham in 2019 as a Receptionist/ Administrator for the ever expanding product line. As the product line grew and moved into a warehouse, so did I. I review all incoming deliveries, process orders, package & ship parcels and help aid the smooth running of the warehouse.
When I am not surrounded by a treasure trove of lash supplies, I am at home cooking with my daughters and embracing the quality time with them.
I have been working with the Lushlash team since 2020. I am based at the Lushlash Halstead Salon and whilst I am customer facing there, I am also at the end of the phone for both salons and for all product enquiries.
My main role is working behind the scenes on social media and speaking with clients. What I love most about my job is that no day is the same and I get to speak to a variety of different people all the time.
I recently moved into my first home so in my spare time I am busy making my house a home which I love!
