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.
The information below is about our Lash Extension philosophy and the fundamentals of the art of Eyelash Extension application. For information about each of our services and the differences between them, please visit: Services.
Authentic Russian Volume
REAL Russian Volume Extensions involve the application of a hand made fan of extensions in varying number to one individual natural eyelash. Based on your individual natural lash patterns, thickness, lengths and style a set of lash extensions will be designed which is specially tailored to you. Each fan applied at your appointment will be made, at your appointment.
In recent times we have seen a trend in the industry towards the use of “pre-made” volume fans. Created by a machine, these identical fans are pre-made by the thousand – their application therefore is a “one-size-fits-all” methodology. While there is a place for this much quicker method of creating a set of Lashes please note this is not and should not be referred to as “Russian Volume” which specifically involves the hand-crafting of fans.
We do not use pre-made volume fans. The service we are offering is GENUINE Russian Volume using the authentic technique of creating and attaching hand-crafted fans. A much faster service could be offered by using commonly found “pre-made fans” and simply attaching these identical factory made fans to each natural lash. Through years of our experience it is our belief that the same effect can not be achieved as with hand crafted fans. There is a high risk that pre-made extensions will not last as these fans cannot be properly attached to the natural lash and only achieve a short term, superficial bond. As you do your research, please remember to ask your Lash Artists if they are hand-making your volume lash fans.
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.
