THE LASHDIP STORY
Meet The Two Women Behind the World's Most Perfect Coat Of Mascara
As many great partnerships do, Jessica Harley and Gina Mondragon's began, quite literally, as an extension of their friendship and mutual passion for beauty, innovation, and long, lush lashes.
And like many great inventions, LashDip was something of a serendipitous accident...
As renowned beauty experts and entrepreneurs, Jessica and Gina were in the habit of trying out their expert techniques on one another in order to ultimately offer a highly personalized, premium service to their clients. They were brought together by their mutual dedication to offering appearance enhancing beauty solutions, both cosmetic & aesthetic, to the beauty industry. This dedication inspired them to invent a technique that would replicate the lash enhancement of traditional mascara—but with an innovative, hassle free, long-term result!
They met as industry colleagues in a Chicago Gold Coast salon and continued to work together for nearly two years—Jessica as a highly sought after master lash technician and makeup artist, whose reputation for perfection in her work built her a large client following; Gina as a nationally recognized and highly sought after master colorist specializing in hair extensions and color correction. As colleagues they were kindred spirits who appreciated one another's mutual talents in beauty.
Jessica was accustomed to applying eyelash extensions as a bridal makeup artist and in her work with television anchors, socialites and stylish Chicagoans. For many years she worked to refine and improve the existing eyelash extension techniques. Gina proposed an idea to create lush lashes without the need for mascara everyday, or eyelash extensions. Jessica embarked on exhaustive research, testing and retesting. The LashDip ladies, together, perfected a technique designed to give their clients the lashes they always wanted.
You could say it was a lash made in heaven...
