Allow me to introduce our #featuredlashartist, Vivian Nguyen-Ngo, known on Instagram as @glamby.viv.
Hailing from Rockport, Texas, Vivian honed her skills at The Strand Institute and has been perfecting the art of lashes for six years.
Starting out, Vivian faced challenges with isolation and retention, common hurdles for many in the industry. However, she stands as a testament to the power of perseverance and the importance of continual learning. Her dedication to practice and ongoing education helped her overcome these initial obstacles.
What drives Vivian as a lash artist is the sense of achievement she feels after completing a full set—it's a reward in itself. She's motivated by the opportunity to enhance her clients' natural beauty, to contribute to their confidence, and to witness the transformative power of her work.
For those just beginning their journey, for any lash artist encountering struggles, Vivian's advice is straightforward and heartfelt: Do not give up. While initial sets may take 3-4 hours, remember that with practice, perfection will follow. It's not about how quickly you can complete a set, but the quality and artistry you bring to each lash.
Let's shower some love and support on Hannah's lash page @glamby.viv celebrating her dedication and skills in the world of lashing!
