Introducing Lilia Verzhbo – "S academy" educator and founder of Studio 8. In 2011 Lilia has started her career as a lash artist in Russia, home to a flawless eyelash extension. 6 months after taking her first training she was fully booked with clients. Just one year later she moved to New York City. Appearance enhancement industry here wasn't developed yet, Lilia couldn't travel to Russia to learn most recent techniques so she had to learn from her own experience. Later she got a chance to learn from the world's top educators including Loreta Jasilionyte whose company Lilia represents in the USA and Canada since February 2017. In May 2015 Lilia has graduated from Christine Valmy International School of Esthetics.

Among Lilia's students are well known lash artists, multiple competition winners and trainers from different parts of the world.

"I believe every artist should find their unique style, following my way has helped me to build clientele who adore natural looks as much as I do. Trying to be like others can mislead you. Remember - you are unique, your vision will find its followers," Lilia says.

Today future lash & brow artists can avoid years of mistakes and get to the same professional level within months. Lilia has developed training programs aiming to sharpen students skills at any level. While the process of education is easy and entertaining Lilia's goal stays the same - influencing the industry and elevating quality of the procedures in the USA, growing more of professional technicians... no, artists.

After earning recognition all over the Europe, the procedure of lash lift is becoming more and more popular in the United States. By adding it to the list of services you can boost your profit and attract more clients. Lash lift today is the only procedure on the market that includes lash lifting, adding volume and color, nourishing natural lashes, at the same time it provides clients with most natural look and is so comfortable. 

A note from Lilia, "More than 5 years ago when I just started performing lash lift I was one of many technicians who mistakenly believed that lash lift was too easy, if I could do eyelash extension, lash lift wouldn't be a problem. The result of incorrect procedure is crooked lashes that can't be managed even by mascara. If you still think that Lash Lift is too easy, than I invite you to my training."
