Salon Owner, Educator, Award Winning Advanced Lash Master
Tania Withers is a well known Entrepreneur within Plymouth, Devon and renown for, what some clients will say 'The Best Lashes in Plymouth'
Tania is the founder of Lashings of Beauty and Training and absolutely loves what she does.
She started off with zero experience in the industry and started working on her own in her kitchen in 2011. In 2016 Lashings of Beauty and Training opened its doors and Tania as turned it in to the thriving salon that it is today.
With a fantastic supportive team behind her, the salon continues to go from strength to strength, boasting a fantastic reputation for both quality treatments and excellent service.
Working full time at the salon, plus running her other two companies and being a mum was hard to juggle. So in September 2019, Tania made a hard decision to put down her tweezers, so that she could take her businesses forward. She will still do the occasional set of lashes for Weddings and Special Occasions on request as well as Competition sets. Tania will happily step in at the salon when needed as Lashes still remain her passion.
The Beauty Training Group in one of Tania's other companies and it has been a huge success. Tania is proud to have a team of 8 other Educators delivering her courses across the country and aims to bring students the most up to date knowledge, based on her personal experiences. Even though she is an educator herself, she continually trains in various ways to keep her knowledge and skills at a high level.
Tania is also proud to have her own brand of Lash and Beauty products, under her business Freckle Beauty & Events. She sells her products to local Lash Technicians and Beauty Therapists, as well as Nationally too. Tania works hard to develop the very best products possible so that fellow therapists can offer clients high quality products to produce the best treatments. She is also proud to supply a range of Training Academies across the Country with her products. The Events side of the business is excited to be putting together Educational Conferences putting Plymouth on the Map and looks forward to inviting a range of Lash Techs and Therapists from across the country to join The Lash Boss Conference.

Ellie is one of our newest and youngest members of the team, but dont let that underestimate her skills in Nails and Lashes.
