Today we’d like to introduce you to Radmila Woll.
Radmila, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I am originally from Europe, Bulgaria. I moved to San Diego, California in 2005. I am a Licensed Esthetician and Eyelash Artist who has a passion for Lash Artistry. I have always been passionate about beauty and all forms of art.
Being in the beauty industry means taking part in the things I enjoy doing, expressing myself through artistic designs and making people look and feel beautiful. I also compete in Art lash Competitions where I create my own artistic designs.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
When I moved to America it was very challenging and a big lifestyle adjustment and cultural change. To find a decent job was a struggle because I didn’t speak English fluently. I enrolled in “English as a Second Language” program to improve my English and took online classes too.
I started working a part-time office job and in a retail shop for eight years. Then, I enrolled in beauty school and signed up for my very first eyelash extension course. I fell in love with lash extensions on the first day of class.
Then, I enrolled in Esthetician school and obtained my Esthetician’s license in 2014. My first Russian volume class was with Irina Levchuk in Los Angeles in 2014. She was the first one to bring volume lash techniques to the US.
Since then, I have completed a long list of advanced certifications from the best International trainers in the lash industry from all over the world. It was hard getting eyelash extension work at first.
So, I worked for some questionable employers to get some experience, some of which did not pay me for some of the work I did for them. However, that experience helped me develop my talent, and now I feel confident in my ability to work anywhere. My biggest fear is that I am not good enough.
There are many great lash artists out there. Complimenting and supporting other lash artists has a great return for me. There is always room for improvement and new things to learn. Never say no to an opportunity.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Lashes by the Sea – what should we know?
My mission is to earn customer’s trust by consistently delivering the highest quality eyelash service. I offer a wide range of eyelash extensions from very natural look too big and full Russian volume.
Russian Volume is an extremely advanced technique that only the experienced and highly skilled technicians can offer. This is one of my specialty areas. No mascara in the world can duplicate true Russian Volume. Every single fan is hand made on the spot — not clusters.
I use only higher quality, lighter and softer lashes. I never overextend my client’s natural lashes as this will cause drooping or twisting of the lashes and unnatural lash shedding that may lead to permanent damage. The procedure is very delicate, and absolute precision is necessary.
I can make unsymmetrical eyes, symmetrical — small eyes, big. I can enhance the best features from a person’s face and show the beauty in every client that they didn’t even know they possessed.
My proudest moment in my career so far was when I competed and won 1st place in the Lash Artists International Frame to FAME competition 2017 Lash Art Masters organized by Jill Heijligers-Peloquin. You can see my Art Lash work published in Lash Inc. Magazine.
As you see from my art pictures below, all designs and decorations are handcrafted by me. I would like to say thank you to my supermodels and Photographer: Lora Calcara. They help make my work look even more beautiful.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
My great attention to the finest of details along with my passion to make my clients beautiful are perhaps my greatest strengths behind my success as an eyelash artist. I enjoy beautiful things, and I am blessed with the talent to create.
