The Lash Spa has been evolving since 2011 when founder Melissa Bergen started a small eyelash extensions business from a spare room in her home and at the time she was one of only a few doing lashes in Australia.
Since then the industry has grown along with the popularity of lashes. Where they once were an uncommon sight, they’ve now become almost the norm with most women because of their ability to create subtle, natural beauty without needing much maintenance – allowing you to wear less makeup and look glamorous all day long.
Over the years The Lash Spa has evolved to be a little more like a day spa – and that’s where the name comes from.
We noticed that a lot of beauty treatments were morphing into very sterile and impersonal services, in an attempt to appear more professional and exclusive – which we believe isn’t what many clients want…
So we decided to go the other way and to create the most relaxing experience possible during your eyelash extensions appointment because we know that the 30-60 minutes you get laying down on the lash table is one of your greatest opportunities to fully unwind…
We have delicious smelling essential oils wafting through the room, calming music, incredibly comfy treatment tables (that might put your own bed to shame), and little treats like our special iced tea on arrival and a goodie bag ready for your departure. You’ll also get a Collagen under-eye treatment applied while your lashes are being done to help reduce any fine-lines, redness or puffiness – because it’s the perfect opportunity to add a little luxury and pampering.
The Lash Spa has now grown into a thriving community with a foundation built by doing the best lashes on the Gold Coast – we get the majority of our clients through referrals because when women see our work they want to know “who did your lashes?”.
And our amazing lash extensions brings us to our lash technicians…
Melissa is the founder of The Lash Spa. She was among a small group who brought eyelash extensions to the Gold Coast back in 2011 after becoming certified and quickly amassed a loyal following of clients thanks to her unique style which resulted in much more natural looking lashes than other salons were providing at the time.
A master lash technician is technically one who has completed over 1000 hours of real-world lash clients, so Melissa has completed that feat numerous times over.
She took The Lash Spa down to Melbourne for a few years for a change of scenery but has since moved back to the sunny Gold Coast for the more relaxed lifestyle and weather that simply can’t be beaten.
A little more about Melissa…
She’s a fully qualified interior designer with a passion for all things design – some of her early work is featured at Night Quarter in Helensvale. She’s also proud mother of one, and another on the way. She loves good coffee, walks on the beach and the cream cheese cookies from Paddock Bakery.
Coming from a busy beauty salon in Surfers Paradise, Naho has racked up thousands of hours ‘lashing’ experience and was quickly chosen to become a part of The Lash Spa team thanks to her incredible eye for detail and ability to understand exactly what the client wants even if they aren’t 100% sure themselves when they walk through our doors.
When Naho started at the Lash Spa she already had an incredible talent and a solid foundation of experience. She was then further trained in the techniques and styles The Lash Spa is known for and has undoubtedly become one of the best lash techs on the Gold Coast.
Naho is delicate, precise, extremely skilled at applying lash extensions and you’re guaranteed to fall in love with the results she will achieve on your lashes.
Years ago she actually worked at a chandelier manufacturer and did all the jobs that were too fiddly for other employees because she has incredibly steady hands and the ability to achieve a level of perfection that isn’t possible for us mere mortals.
A little more about Naho…
She speaks fluent Japanese, loves shopping and taking full advantage of the beautiful Gold Coast weather by spending time at the beach.
