Lash Beauty was opened in 2008 by Agnes Tsoi. Agnes started out renting a small studio in Sola Salon doing eyelash extensions and facials. She found that most of her clients came to her for eyelash extensions rather than facials, so she decided to make eyelash extensions her main focus. Turns out that she liked this change as well because it gave her more creative range as she was able to create custom eyelash extension designs for her clients.
Lash Beauty Owner Agnes Tsoi can truly say that she has made a career out of doing what she loves. Growing up in Hong Kong, Agnes developed her passion for art at a very young age. As a little girl unable to take any art classes, she taught herself to draw and eventually became drawn to music. She begged her father at age 11 to take piano lessons, but only nine months in her mother pulled her out of classes because she didn’t think a career in music would make for a very promising future. Agnes later resumed her piano lessons as an adult and her artistic desires spread to include opera singing, Chinese calligraphy, and photography.
Once Agnes came to the US, she had all the creative freedom she could dream of. She had been a teacher and counselor in Hong Kong, with a BA in Theology from Hong Kong Bible Seminary and a MA in divinity from Acadia University, and although she initially came to the US for an MA in Counseling Psychology from National University, she fell in love with a new art form – beauty. Agnes began to channel her natural artistic talent into creating beautiful and intricate lash designs for her clients. She is professionally trained and certified Lash Artists. She feels that each set of eyelash extensions is a one-of-a-kind work of art, customized to best compliment each client’s eyes. She also applies her education background to her career by teaching lashing techniques to new and experienced lash stylists. Through Lash Beauty, Agnes feels that she has found herself both as a professional and as an artist living out her dream.
