Our Story.

From her parents' living room
to the top lash salon in Canberra.

Welcome to Capital Lashes, where we believe every woman deserves to feel confident and beautiful with a sustainable, styled, and stunning set of stunning lashes.


Our story begins with Rachel, our founder and lead lash artist, who fell in love with eyelash extensions at 19. She was obsessed at first lash by how they made her feel and the convenience of feeling"done" without putting on makeup.

However, after experiencing numerous lash mishaps from poorly trained lash artists, Rachel realised there was a need for high-quality lash extension service in Canberra that didn't ruin natural lashes. That's when she was prompted (begged) by friends to become an eyelash artist herself! So, she started her own Lash Salon Business in her parents' living room in March 2017 called Capital Lashes.

Since then, Capital Lashes has outgrown five salon locations and now resides in the heart of Kingston. Dedicated to high quality, safety and sustainability, Rachel has received 40+ lash extension qualifications from top educators around the world. In 2019, Rachel became one of the 15 industry leaders for the International Association of Registered Lash Artists (ARLA) and collaborated with other leaders to set new industry standards. Rachel has received the highest international lash educator qualifications from the National Association of Lash Artists (NALA - USA)  and the International Lash Masters Association Australia (ILMA). In 2021, she launched Capital Lashes Academy to teach her stunning, fully tailored, and lash health-focused lash methods to other remarkable women around Canberra and Australia.


Rachel and her team regularly travel interstate to attend lash conferences and they are continuously training through in-depth in-house training programs to ensure they have the best knowledge, techniques and expertise.  As a result, Capital Lashes now has the most dedicated and highly skilled team of senior lash and brow stylists that have made Capital Lashes what it is today - THE place to go for Sustainable, Styled, and Stunning lashes.

Capital Lashes is passionate about raising industry standards, educating clients, and providing exceptional lash and brow services that make our clients feel confident, beautiful, and cared for.


Thank you for trusting us with your lashes.

With Love & Lashes,


Rachel and the Capital Lashes Team x
