Raylene’s Story

I discovered NovaLash almost 9 years ago. It was the best thing that happened to me. I found my love. I’ve been a cosmetologist for 11 years, and in my 2nd year of cosmetology, I saw in the back of a magazine a small ad for eyelash extensions. I went home that evening and saw a small bit on E! News about eyelash extensions. So, I got on my computer, googled eyelash extensions, found NovaLash, and read they were having a class in my town in about 2 weeks. It was my destiny. Shortly after my class, I quit hair and have only been doing NovaLash eyelash extensions. After a few years, I took Sophia Navarro’s Advanced Class. I went home to practice my new advanced skills and grew even more. In June 2015 I took the 1st NovaLash Advanced American Volume class in Las Vegas also with Sophia Navarro. That was a game changer! Creating a damage free full volume look was the ultimate dream. After building a pretty large clientele I decided to build Lash By Lash and opened in June of 2017. That fall I became the trainer for NovaLash for the state of Oklahoma. It was so exciting that my studio could be exclusively NovaLash. I really wanted to offer high-quality products in a very upscale studio with the best-trained staff. I couldn’t believe I achieved my dream of becoming a trainer with NovaLash. My second dream was to become a Brand Ambassador and LASHoff finalist.

With amazing education and training behind me, I decided to put myself out there more so I applied for NovaLash Brand Ambassador. I was named 2017 semifinalist. It really helped my social media and I noticed it gave me a small platform. The following year I applied again for Brand Ambassador and the LASHoff contest. I was named 2018 Brand Ambassador and LASHoff semifinalist. I loved that it gave me a platform to share my love for NovaLash as well as to inspire other artists, and I really enjoyed the creative aspect of making videos. The 2018 winner, Tonje Fjeldberg-Elshaug, really inspired me! So, when I applied this year I wanted to show that NovaLash eyelash extensions were not just seasonal luxuries. By that I mean, not just for one time of the year and that you can wear them all year-long in every season! NovaLash extensions are mainstream – they’re everyday lashes for everyday women. I really love sharing my NovaLash knowledge and that’s why I wanted to become the Lash Artist of the Year. So I kept going and became the 2019 NovaLash Lash Artist of the Year and Brand Ambassador! My dream came true and now I have a bigger platform to inspire others and share my knowledge of NovaLash.
