Today's Inspirational Woman of the day is the totally amazing and self made business owner and entrepreneur Tania Withers - Lashing of Beauty and Training
After having her first child in 2010, Tania searched for a career where she could be flexible around childcare. In 2011, Tania entered Beauty Industry with no previous experience in this field.
Previous to this, Tania worked at Plymouth Pavilions for 9yrs. After getting continual promotions, she worked her way up from a casual member of staff to Leisure Ticketing Manager and gained a wealth of knowledge in various areas such as Team Management, Customer Service, Marketing and more.
After training in her first few beauty courses, Tania quickly realised that she thoroughly enjoyed offering Beauty Treatments but felt a lot of the training that was currently on offer was not the best. Aftercare support was non-existent and many of the tutors lacked passion. She spent most of her time self-teaching at home to expand her knowledge in each treatment to ensure she could offer the best to her clients.
Based on her experiences, she felt there was a gap in the market and decided to go to college and undertake a Teacher Training Course which would enable her to offer high quality training courses.
Soon after, she put together her own training manuals and submitted them for accreditation and launched her own Beauty Training Academy in June 2014.
By this point Tania was specialising in Eyelash Extensions and had a bursting client base. Working from home with a young family was difficult but it enabled her to continue to grow the business with little overheads.
In September 2014 Tania was head-hunted by national training company Flirties and decided to offer a range of training courses under their umbrella.
In October 2014, she started proceedings to take over the lease of a local salon in a Eggbuckland. Tania is well known across the country and locally within the beauty industry and is a well respected Educator and Lash Artist. In December 2015, Tania was ranked 7th in a Worldwide Lash Contest out if 1300 entries.
In February 2016, the Premises was finally transferred in to Tania's name and Tania opened the Salon & Training Academy earlier this month (15 months since starting the process!!)
This week, she announced that she's also taking on a second premises in Torpoint, to be able to offer both treatments and trainings in a second location!
Tania's passion for training is as strong as her love for offering treatments themselves. Her clients are extremely loyal and many have been with her since she started. Customer Service is a top priority, something she feels that can be forgotten about within this industry. She has a small team which work in a self employed basis and each specialise in chosen treatments, to ensure they're only offering the best treatments possible. She intends to expand even more over the next few years and we know she will continue to drive the business forward with her drive, enthusiasm and passion. We wish you every success.
Tania offers Accredited Training Courses in various aspects of Beauty, many courses from complete beginner level up to advanced. On top of the courses the salon(s) also offer a huge choice of beauty treatments including Eyelash Extensions, Lash Lifting, Brow Enhancements, Massage, Facials, Reflexology, Hopi Ear Candling, Acrylic and Gel Nail Enhancements, Waxing, Manicure & Pedicure plus Hair-up.
Please feel free to check out Tania's Facebook page or website for more information on what she has to offer...https://www.facebook.com/Lashings-of-Beauty-and-Training-P…/

As our clients will know, this has possibly been the longest ever process in history! But we got there in the end. After a torturous 15 months, the salon was finally transferred in to Tania's name. We are now excited to move the business forward and expand as planned!
The new move endeavors to offer our clients a wider range of beauty treatments as well as beauty courses. We will open 6 days a week and have specliast thereapists working in each area to ensure their skills are not spread thin.
We have a top of the range standing sun bed available, 3 nail stations, 2 lash extension couches, 1 separate relaxing beauty room plus a brow bar and makeup section.
We also host a wide range of beauty products that are in stock and available for purchase within the salon.
Special offers and promotions will be available on a regular basis to reward our clients, old and new!

Lash Festival 2015
The Lash Festival is a Worldwide Competition run by UK company The Eyelash Emporium. This is an annual event and thousands of Lash Artists from all over the world enter in to two categories.
Tania entered in to the Individual Lash Category and one of her pics became extremely popular within a matter of days! Within the first week, Tania shot up to 1st place and remained there for the duration of the First Stage with a staggering 1402 votes from the public, over 300 votes above the contestant in 2nd place!!
However, this didnt meant that Tania was automatically put through to the final stage. Judges from across the world had to scrutinise the entrants and decide who was going forward to the final stage.
Tania was successful and made it through to the Final Stage and had to rely on public votes to help give her a chance of being crowned World Lash Master 2015!!
Could Tania be crowned Worlds Best Lash Tech?
We hit the headlines for a second time in 2 weeks!!
The Herald have been extremely supportive of Tania getting through to the Final Stage of the Lash Festival Competition. So much so, that they have done a second article on her.
You can read the full story here...
Plymouth Herald called her... "The Queen of Lashes"
Tania in the Plymouth Herald!
After entering the Lash Festival 2015 in November 2015, The Herald got wind that Tania was doing well, so got in contact to ask the locals for some support. You can read all about it here...
November 2015 we got our tweet back!
We've been pretty quiet on Twitter over the last few months, due to a hectic summer and new staff joining the team. But we are back and want you to come follow us as another avenue to keep up to date.

Competition Win for Tania
On 10th May 2015, Tania entered an online competition with Frankie Widdows and won 1st place! The three judges chose Tanias picture, saying "the uniformity of the set was flawless, with a perfect graduation in lengths" they added "the lashes were placed a perfect distance from the lash line and isolation was exceptional"
Tania was sent £100 worth of lash goodies including new tools, lashes, coloured lashes and a training manual and dvd.
