ABOUT US

Storm Flaum

Founder and Owner of Lash Studio

Storm started her passion for the beauty industry at a young age. As a terrible nail biter growing up, she discovered her passion for the world of beauty when her mum took her for her first manicure in an effort to get her to stop biting. Eventually she kicked the habit, but her passion for working with others and studying the human body grew.

She studied a 3 year national diploma in Somatology at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology and graduated top of her class in 2006. She then joined the Carlton Hair International team and worked with them as a junior therapist until she found herself expanding her expertise to become their inter-branch manager and Trainer. From there she became a Trainer for the sensational Italian cosmetic range {comfort zone}.

At the heart of it all, lash extensions are Storms ultimate passion. She was introduced to lashes in 2006 and continues to enroll in further educational courses and enters competitions. She is qualified in classic, advanced classic, volume and pro styling lashes. She has developed an affinity to conquer the most challenging of lash types such as sparse, fine hair or previously damaged lashes.

With such a thirst for beauty and health knowledge, Storm has also completed her studies in Touch for Health (kinesiology) and aesthetic treatments such as superficial chemical peels, microneedling and microblading.

Teri Gennison

Owner of Swoosh Beauty

Teri studied beauty for 2 years and qualified as an ITEC therapist in 2010. She then focused her skills on additional courses such as holistic and aromatherapy massage and nail treatments. After working for numerous years in the hospitality industry she couldn’t wait to dive back into the beauty industry and she went back into studies and completed an extensive makeup course at Smudge makeup academy in 2012.
