Established in 2009 as “Perth Tans”, we began specialising in Perth’s Lashes in 2011. The newly branded Tan Lash & Beauty has remained under the same private ownership through out, placing us amongst the oldest names in the Perth Lash Industry.
Our growth has continued with 2017 seeing the opening of our second South of the River location in Cannington and our relocation into a new salon in North Perth – still on Blake street where we previously shared a space, but into our own specialised salon inside The Walcott Centre tailored specially to the services we offer.
The founder of Tan Lash & Beauty built and still works within the business, connecting with our customers on a daily basis and participating in a team that shares a passion for what we do. We enjoy and take pride in delivering the services we offer and do not operate like an investment which was has changed hands several times and has maximum profit as it’s primary objective.

Perth Lash Extensions & Perth’s International School of Beauty Therapy
Perth Lash Extensions Eyelash Technicians are professionally trained and certified eliminating the risk of leaving your lashes in the hands of a “self-taught” home operator whom could cause permanent damage to your natural lashes.
Having been in Perth’s Lash industry for many years, we have unfortunately assisted with the repair and removal of a large number of painful, incorrectly applied Lash Extensions to clients whom more often than not are none-the-wiser at their initial appointment that the incorrect technique was being used. It is is only as the natural lashes begin to grow in the day and weeks following that extensions that were not applied to a perfectly isolated natural lash will begin to pull at each other, irritate, poke at the eyelid and become itchy and uncomfortable.
Sometimes these have been applied by Aesstheticians who may be otherwise very talented but might only have had the opportunity to perform a couple of eyelash extension sets per week and not have the experience required or any formal training in this particular service. We do not offer a wide range of beauty treatments – Lashes are our passion day in and day out. Not only do we have the skill and experience but we can perform this high standard at a competent pace.
A Full Set of Classic consist of 140+ lash extensions individually applied to every suitable natural lash at a 1:1 ratio.
The Classic technique uses one set of specialised tweezers to isolate each of your natural lashes one by one, and another set to pick up an extension, cover it in medical grade adhesive and attach it to the natural lash. Read below for some more information about how crucial Perfect Isolation is to all aspects of Lashes.
Classic eyelash extensions are available in 0.15 mm thickness in lengths ranging from from 6mm-14mm and in different “curls”.
After your appointment, your extensions will start to fall out with your natural lashes over their natural lash cycle. Refills are available at 2 or 3 weeks when you could expect to have lost around half or if you decide not to refill you will continue to lose the extensions for another couple of weeks until they are all gone.
A full set of classic extensions generally takes our experienced technicians around 1 hour to achieve.
3D Russian Volume Lashes
Volume Eyelash extensions involve attaching several micro extensions in a fan shape to one natural lash at a 3+:1 ratio. Again, one pair of tweezers are used to achieve perfect isolation of the natural lashes one by one whilst another picks up 3-5 extensions in a hand-made fan configuration, dips them in glue and attaches to the base of the natural lash.
The thickness of these micro extensions range from 0.05 – 0.10 mm so they are much finer and fluffier than the classic lash extensions, however the technique multiplies the amount of lashes present 3-5 X over. We have extensions ranging from 6mm- 14mm and various curls in stock.
Russian Volume lashes allow a client with fewer natural lashes to increase the number of lashes present which can not be achieved with the Classic technique. Generally, a shorter length of extension is used with Volume Sets than classic as there are many more extensions in place and the additional length is not required.
The 3D Russian Volume set generally takes 1.5+ hours to achieve.
Hybrid Lash Extensions
This style of lash extensions combines both the Classic and Colume techniques in one set.
We will tailor the right combination for your natural lashes which might be using classic style extensions for the inner half of the lash line and focusing volume on the outer eye, or perhaps spacing the volume fans through out the lash line and filling in between with classic.
Added by popular demand, our Glamour Boost allows a client to add on extra time to a full set or refill appointment while staying within the same category.
Sometimes clients want to go the extra mile and pump up their volume without jumping up from from Classic to Hybrid or Hybrid to Volume.
For example they may feel they have alot more lashes than the average client and want to book extra time to ensure they can achieve maximum volume with their full set. Or they may want to book a refill but feel extra time is required that week.
10 mins can be up to a 30% increase in appointment time, depending on the base appointment type.

Lash Mapping / Styling
At the start of your appointment, we will discuss with you the look you would like to achieve and how best we can use the different thicknesses, lengths and curls to help you achieve this.
The Cat Eye style is achieved by using extensions increasing graduallyin length as they sweep towards the outer sections of each eye. This creates the illusion of larger, wider eyes which are further apart.
In comparison, The Dolly Eye style uses a longer length of extension in the middle of each lash line will create the illusion of eyes which are rounder, rather than wider.
Princess Lash Styling use extensions that remain consistent in length across the whole eye and are one of the more natural options.
Even just a variation in the curl used can make a noticeable different to your look. A ‘D’ Curl extension which has a more defined curl than a ‘C’ curl can be used to open up the eyes of clients with lashes that are naturally downwards pointing, opening up their eyes dramatically.
Perfect Isolation & Precise Application
These concepts are absolutely fundamental to Lash Extensions and are essential to ensure retention and to prevent damage to your natural lashes. IF the natural lash is not properly isolated, it will result in the clumping of natural lashes and extensions which prevents them from growing freely in their natural direction as they are all stuck together.
Unfortunately there are many inexperienced technicians who operate without adequate training and we are often asked to fix the aftermath of this. Without correct isolation, the extensions will feel and look normal at first, but as the natural lashes begin to grow within a few days they will pull against each other. This results in discomfort as they poke into the eyelid, itchiness as bacteria forms and is stuck underneath the clump of lashes and even permanent lash damage if the roots are damaged as the extensions are pulled out prematurely.
The Lash Health of our clients is paramount and we will not compromise on this. Incorrect isolation can actually allow a technician a shortcut to achieving a “fuller look” so beware of classic extensions sets which look like “strip lashes” intended to be worn for one night with a water based adhesive only. The Classic technique enhances the natural lashes and achieves volume by making each one longer and thicker. It will not result in an increased number of lashes if done correctly.
