About the Institute

The Lash & Brow Institute was founded by Lisa in 2013

Our name became official in 2016. Owning The Urban Beauty Lounge salon highlighted the need for capable therapists who could work to a higher standard. Taking all of our most valuable knowledge, insider secrets and years of experience, the Lash & Brow Institute was born.

We now train hundreds of aspiring beauty therapists annually and pride ourselves in the highest industry standards and internationally accredited certification. We pride ourselves in offering technical product knowledge, navigating owning your own business and being a constant support to our valued students.



With 10 years of beauty industry business experience, owning The Urban Beauty Lounge and the Lash & Brow Institute, Lisa has extensive experience in her field. She has comprehensive knowledge in the art of eyelash extensions. Her training includes multiple eyelash extension certifications including under Olga from the Lash and Brow Art University, based in the Ukraine. Holding an educator’s qualification and International Accreditation for her Eyelash Extensions training with Lash Inc UK.

This offers peace of mind to students travelling abroad or living outside of South Africa that these courses are of an international standard.

Her training style is very practical and hands-on, giving students an advantage in the industry. Her strong online marketing knowledge is of great benefit to students looking to promote their skills to future clients. Her curriculum includes practical social media marketing advice along with tools for running an eyelash extensions business.

The beneficial relationships forged with her students extend further than classes as they are often still in contact years after the course and have opted to freelance at The Urban Beauty Lounge. The eyelash extensions courses all include entry to her WhatsApp support group which makes further learning an ongoing part of the package. Lisa feels very passionate about women empowering other women in business through collaboration and sharing of ideas.
