Meet Sandra “Sandey” Richardson of Blinklash in Newport Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sandra “Sandey” Richardson.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My journey began almost 10 years ago, I was in Los Angeles attending a beauty industry training when I met a lovely lady who had the most beautiful eyelashes that I had the ever seen. They looked like they could be her own lashes, they were long, curly and thick in a natural looking way. To my surprise when I complimented how much I loved her lashes she told me they were extensions. I was so intrigued and in awe of how they would look on me that I asked her for the lady’s number that did them. I was able to get an appointment my last day in LA. I recall being so excited, I could not wait to see how they would look on me. They looked so pretty and natural as if I was born with extremely long thick curly lashes and had one coat of a perfect non-clumpy looking mascara. From that moment on I fell in love with lash extensions. A few weeks later I became certified to do eyelash extensions and after about six months of practicing on everyone I could get my hands on I added the service to my facial studio. It’s been a total rush and hard work, but I still am excited about lashing.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I can honestly say that it’s been so fun. I enjoy meeting new clients and love getting to know my clients, it’s a delight catching up like when you visit your hairstylist. I guess the hardest part is when people move away. Also, its challenging but I always enjoy the growth that comes with it.
