Tell us about your business. What year did you open, services you currently offer, awards you've received and your proudest achievement to date.

I started KLIF in 2019 as a small business venture. At the time, I was working out of my spare bedroom at home and was the sole operator. However, as the business grew, I started to explore the possibility of expanding and offering more services. Fast forward to today, and KLIF has become a thriving business with a team of 13 employees and subcontractors. Our salon is located in Newport, and we offer a wide range of services, including lash, brow, hair, skin and injectable services.

Our commitment to providing the best possible service to our clients has not gone unnoticed. In 2023, we were honoured to be voted Brisbane's best lash salon by the Courier Mail. This recognition is a testament to the quality of our services and the dedication of our team.

At KLIF, we strive to create a welcoming and relaxing environment for our clients. We understand that each client has unique needs and preferences, which is why we offer a personalized approach to our services.

What are your favourite lash & brow services and why?

When it comes to eyelash extensions, the full set of Classic lashes with Flat lashes by LashJoy is simply unbeatable. This service is hands down our most popular in the salon, and for good reason. The lashes are not only incredibly soft, but also have a rich, dark colour that our clients absolutely adore and rave about.

Flat lashes are a newer type of eyelash extension that are becoming increasingly popular because they provide a wider and more dramatic look without adding extra weight to the natural lashes. They are also known to have a softer feel than traditional eyelash extensions.

LashJoy is a trusted brand in the beauty industry that provides high-quality eyelash extension products that are safe to use and long-lasting. A full set of Classic lashes with Flat lashes by LashJoy will enhance your natural beauty and give you a stunning, yet natural-looking lash line.




What's next for you and your business? What's next for KLIF in business?

KLIF has been making strides in expanding its business. The company has recently launched its own product line called TAME by KLIF, which has been receiving positive feedback from customers. The team is working hard to develop new products that will be added to the line, and we can't wait to share the details with you.

Furthermore, KLIF is thrilled to announce the launch of an online course for brow lightening. This service has been increasingly popular in the beauty industry, and KLIF is well positioned to capitalize on this trend. The course will be expertly crafted to assist beauty professionals in mastering the latest techniques and trends in brow lightening, and will be instructed by industry leaders.

These exciting developments are just the beginning for KLIF, as the company continues to explore new ways to expand and grow its business. Stay tuned for more updates on what's next for KLIF!
