Meet the Stylists Kana (Eyelash Specialist)

Eyelash Specialist: Kana
Main Branch: Saratoga Salon

Q: Tell us about yourself. Where are you from? What are some of your career highlights?
A: I’m originally from Yamanashi prefecture, Japan where I worked as a registered nurse. My career started when I came to the states, where I acquired my certification as an eyelash specialist. While going to a Japanese eyelash extension school in LA, I gathered models on my own time to practice every single day so I can perfect my technique as well as maintain a high-quality customer experience.

Q: What's your specialty?


A: I have a way of creating not only beautiful, non-damaging lashes, but making those lashes last long. I carefully study my customers’ lashes, capturing their features and the way they grow to make sure that they’re sustainable. I also do volume lashes and color extensions depending on my customers’ desired look.

Q: Why did you become an eyelash specialist?
A: I remember I was captivated by my own eyelash extension experience. I loved how it dramatically changed my eyes, while still maintaining a natural look. I was always interested in learning about it and coming to the states was the perfect timing to kick-start my career.
Q: What do you love about your job?

A: Being able to bring my customers’ vision to life is the most rewarding experience ever. I love seeing my customers happy and satisfied with the outcome. The best part is when they come back for a refill, not only are some extensions still left but they still look beautifully intact. It’s really important for me to bring long-lasting satisfaction for all of my customers.
Q: Tell us about your aspirations.
A: To create a long-lasting organic lash adhesive glue.
Q. Who’s your muse?
A: Miranda Kerr.
Q: What do you do on your free time?
A: Spending time with my son!
Q: What’s your favorite quote?
A: Laughter is the best medicine.

3 things you probably didn't know about Texas


Hi everyone! Since our Plano Salon is getting settled in a new environment, we thought we’d share with you what we learned about Texas.

1. The origin of Texas
Did you know that the name “Texas” comes from the Indian language “Tejas” which means “friendship” and “allies”?

Way back in history, Texas was a province of Mexico, but from 1835 to 1836, Texas won its independence. Their victory called for a new flag which featured a white lone star and hence their nickname, “The Lone Star State” — a representation of pride and independence.

Staying true to its origins, the people in Texas are extremely friendly and we all take pride in the amazing state we live in. 





2. It’s bigger than you think it is
Texas is the 2nd largest state in the U.S. both by area and population. So, everything is really spacious out here. Many people drive big pickup trucks and roads and parking spaces are nice and wide—Yes!! So much room to breathe.

3. The center of rapid growth
After the Civil War, livestock, especially cattle thrived and became the center of the industry. In the early 20th century Texas experienced an economic boom with the oil industry, which later developed into a diversified economy bringing in high-tech companies as well as other new businesses. Texas is now the 2nd highest in gross state product and continues to experience rapid growth.

So, there’s a glimpse of Texas! Viange Hair is proud to be in the middle of an amazing, innovative state. And don’t forget to visit us at our new salon in Plano, Texas!
