INDUSTRY INFLUENCER

This is an award that is provided by the entire Lovella team and community to the artist whom we believe has had the greatest influence on the lash industry of South Africa.

From her very first day as ‘Lovella educator’, she has not only inspired her students, but also everyone at Lovella. The description of an influencer is not only “someone to watch” or “someone to lash alike”, but it is also a combination of so much more. We want to touch on a few points where she has expressed the biggest influence:

Being resilient enough to brush off negative opinions.
Taking the time to truly engage with, support and uplift members of our lash community.
Maintaining authenticity in her own brand and business.
Pushing herself with every lash set that she does and creating the majority of perfect sets in our industry.
Not only becoming but also creating an award-winning lash artist/employee.
Most importantly, remaining humble throughout all her growth.

Various nominations online said that they were inspired and influenced by her, and we wholeheartedly agree! This highest level of award appropriately reflects her value and impact as an industry influencer.

WINNER – NATALIE JOUBERT

The Lovella team would like to wish all our winners a massive congratulations and unlimited success in the future. We are truly blessed to have you as part of our lash community and industry.
