When Merlin Callaghan visited her native Estonia in 2014 she discovered a new beauty treatment; lash extensions. Loving the new gorgeous, fluffy lashes, and the confidence boost they gave her, she was keen to continue having the treatment upon her return to the UK. However, her search for the perfect lash artist proved more difficult than anticipated, so in 2015 Merlin came up with a simple solution – to learn about the art of lash extensions herself.
Fast forward seven years and Merlin Lash And Beauty is now the go-to brand for perfect lashes, artist training courses and the finest lash products.
Merlin attained her qualifications by travelling to lash courses and bespoke mentoring sessions with industry leaders in Russia, Estonia, Romania, Ukraine, Finland and the United Kingdom.
With a meticulous eye for detail, Merlin creates unique individual lash looks for her clients who range from office and hospitality workers to sportswomen, celebrities and royalty. Merlin’s skilful approach, merging a range of spellbinding techniques with her own top-quality lash products, has earned her the nickname ‘Merlin The Lash Wizard’.
Merlin is now established in the global lash extensions industry as an international lash artist, trainer, mentor, competition judge and public speaker, while her Merlin Lash And Beauty company provides the finest professional lash products.
Merlin’s dream is for each lash artist to become the best they can be and have the best lash career built by in-depth and supportive training.
After spotting a gap in the market for quality lash products, Merlin founded the trademarked lash brand MLAB which provides high-quality professional lash products, developed and tested by herself and her Magical Lash Fairy Team and in consultation with her clients to guarantee the best lash products on the market.
To make her dream a reality, Merlin personally chose a selection of her students to become trainers for Merlin Lash and Beauty Training. Each of the lash trainers has a huge passion and devotion to deliver the best MLAB Lash Extension Courses right across the country.
