Genna Rose, Lashes, Brows and Training is a cosy salon based in the town of Chippenham in Wiltshire. We specialise and only offer Lash and Brow treatments and Training, priding ourselves on creating a community within our four walls. We aren’t the ‘usual’ beauty salon and nor do we want to be. We Laugh, we cry, we put the world to rights and we make inappropriate jokes (yep! all with our clients as well). However, Due to the treatments we provide, it is a high priority for us that both our clients and staff feel comfortable and welcome throughout their time with us. So as an aim to add to this experience, we have decided to start a blog for everyone from clients, people in the industry and those looking to train and begin this crazy career we call ‘Lashes and Brows’. We have just celebrated our 3rd birthday and are so excited for many more, so follow along, ask questions and enjoy.
Everyone’s journey to finding what makes them want to get up in the morning and go to work is different. That is no different for us; all three of us have had very different previous work experiences before finding lashing and never turning back (we aren’t allowed to leave, it’s in our contracts!) – for legal reasons, this is a joke- Please enjoy the weird and wonderful ways we have ended up here because we definitely have.
Genna – Director and Master Lash Artist.
Whilst on maternity leave with her second baby in 2014 Genna set off on her first training course to give her the freedom to be her own boss. Not knowing where ‘Eyelash extensions’ could take her, or where she would end up, Genna completed several other courses within the beauty industry, from facial, waxing and spray tanning. After building her client base as a mobile therapist and working out of her home, Genna saw a gap in the market and opened her own salon in the December of 2018, specialising in Eyelashes and Brows. Since then the salon has gone from strength to strength, expanding to now an Award-Winning Training Academy in December 2019 and expanding her team in the July of 2019 and now the proud employer (cough…Owner) of 2 amazing and talented girlies. Genna prides herself in personal education, providing the most up-to-date skill and information to her clients, students and staff. Winner of ‘The Lash & Brow Artist of the Year 2020’
Tyla- Senior Lash Artist and Salon Manager.
Tyla is an odd one. She graduated from Winchester University in 2018 with a 2:1 in Forensics but decided that just wasn’t for her. After paying her do’s working in hospitality and doing standard office jobs she decided she needed a change and wanted to find something she enjoyed. Always wanting to do something in the beauty industry, she found Genna Rose and took a leap of faith. Since then Tyla has won a couple of awards for eyelash extensions (client choice award at the lash social 2019, 1st place beginners Russian volume and 2nd place beginners classic with SR Signature 2020). Ty is loving all the new trends for brows. Tyla is qualified in Classic lashes extensions, Russian Volume, Lash Lifts, Eyebrow waxing, tinting and lamination. whilst managing the daily runnings of the salon and even Genna’s personal diary 🙂
Eden – Jr Lash Artist.
Well, what can we say about our Eden? Since starting with us in the September of questionably the most unstable year in our history 2020. She has absolutely smashed it, with no prior experience apart from making her own brows look banging on the daily. Eden started her working life taking care of other people’s kids, beginning in a nursery and then moving on to nannying for private families. As much as cleaning up after tiny humans is great (not) it wasn’t buttering her muffin. So lashes and brows seemed like the next logical step right? Cleaning up after Genna and Tyla is now her full-time job, and she LOVES it. Eden is now our amazing junior lash artist, qualified in classic, hybrid and Russian volume lashes, lash lifts, eyebrow wax, tint and laminations!
Kevin – Head of security.
Paw giver and attention seeker. This is a role that Kevin was born for – literally, we had his name and job role picked out before he was conceived. Although he had no choice it’s something he has taken in his stride and looks forward to every day. You’ll find Kevin doing his daily surveillance out the front window, making sure to show everyone he has been to his station by leaving his nose marks on the door. Although he isn’t the best at security, he has the best paws and dopest ears in the industry – you’ll find no one better than our Kev.
