”When I opened my Boutique Spa I was curious to see what else lash related was around so I started looking for a different lash brand, one that offered amazing products. I came across Katie Godfrey on a lash forum and I bought a tray of KG Professional lashes to try. I was instantly surprised how much better they were compared to the expensive company I was using at the time. There is so much more variety in lengths and curls, but what was clear from the start and what instantly converted me over to KG products was how easily they were to fan. I now use KG Products in all of my lash treatments in my spa and my clients love them! I promote KG products honestly which is easy to do as they are the highest quality and customer care really is Katie’s highest priority. I’m honoured to be the very first brand ambassador for KG Professional”

Kelly Louise Jackson

KG Brand Ambassador

Kelly comes from a Law background and 2 years ago found her passion and love for lashing. Kelly rented a room at a local gym until she took her volume course with KG at the end of September 2017. Kelly left her full time job 5 weeks later to lash full time from home in her very own beautiful Lash Room!

“I’ve been fully booked working 12 hour days Monday to Friday ever since then. And currently have a waiting list for new clients and a 6 week wait for appointments. Safe to say I have never looked back!

I was looking for a new adhesive to use and wanted opinions so raised the question on a Lash Page on Facebook and Katie Godfrey commented on my post. I purchased the KG black adhesive and trialled it against another brand on a few models. Not only was the adhesive a dream to work with but when the models came back for their infills, the results spoke for themselves.

I’ve been using KG products for 18 months and have amazing results. I always recommend KG to other Lash Techs and to my clients because its an amazing brand with the highest quality products.

I’m so excited to not only be a Brand Ambassador for KG Professional but to be part of such an amazing team.”
