Here is a quick overview of how the competition will work.
If you are a solo artist, you will need to enter the SOLO LASH ARTIST division and if you are a salon owner (you have at least one employee) you will need to enter the LASH SALON OWNER division.
In each division, there are five categories that we’ll be awarding Lashies for. You can enter any number of categories. You can enter into only one category or all five if you want (or any number in between).
Please keep the word count to 750 words max for any category you enter. Each category has 5 to 6 questions for you to respond to. Please do not use more than 750 words to answer all the questions.
Each category essay will be read and rated by multiple anonymous judges. We will add up the scores and come up with the average score in each category. If your essay scores at the top of its category, you will receive a Lashies Award.
There can and most likely be more than one winner in each category. For example, we don’t believe there is just one person who is best at “customer service”. Instead, we believe that many business owners can demonstrate excellence in any of our five categories and if they score high enough in the essay, they will be honored with a Lashie.
The winners will be announced on September 27, 2021, via social media and email.
We will host the first annual Lashies on Sunday night November 7, 2021, at the LASHCONference. We will honor all our winners at this award presentation and pass out award certificates and trophies. If you can’t make it to the LASHCONference we’ll ship you your award certificate and trophy after the LASHCONference is over.
