WORKSHOP HOST - Styling
Despite holding a BA degree in Political Science, her passion for beauty was stronger than anything that she decided to change her career path and become a lash artist.
Dominika began her career in 2016, has trained, and continues to train with some of the most talented eyelash extension artists around the world, constantly improving her skills.
In just 3 years she completed several training courses, gained acquired experience and placed multiple times in international competitions furthermore her work has been featured in well known beauty magazines and her volume styling recognized by many top lash masters.
She strongly believes that hard work, patience, professional attitude and believing in yourself is the key to achieve the success. She has been living by a quote from Confucius: “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”
Dominika will be hosting a workshop on Eye Styling.
Styling is one of the most important parts of eyelash extensions as they should compliment the clients eyes and enhance their natural beauty. If styling is chosen incorrectly, we cant expect to have returning clients and the whole treatment will lose its value and magic.
Every lash stylist who is passionate about their job should know that the most beautiful and flawless outcomes are created by using correct eye styling and mapping.

Founder and CEO of Tanya Whitebits,
EVENT SPEAKER - Topic to be confirmed
Founder and CEO of Tanya Whitebits, Welsh-native Shoned Owen had always been interested in the Beauty industry, particularly tanning since her teens. She used sun beds throughout her twenties until the dangers of skin cancer and premature skin ageing converted her to self tanning products.
In 2012 she attended an accredited Spray Tanning Course. She did this in order to boost her income and set herself up as a mobile tanning technician, a Mumpreneur so to speak. It fitted in perfectly around her work and children “I enjoyed having control over when I was working and how much I was earning!” Shoned became an expert in spray tanning also qualifying in 3D contour tanning.
Tanya Whitebits began life as a Professional Tanning Solution back in 2013 after Shoned became disillusioned with what was available in the tanning industry at the time.
Shoned began to explore the formulation of self tan in 2013.
Determined to remove all the barriers that were normally associated with fake tannning, her focus came to reality in the creation of Tanya Whitebits; a fast drying quality, non sticky and odour free formula.
Shoned will be one of our Speakers at the Lash Boss conference and will be nothing less than inspiring for all that are attending.
