We had the good fortune of connecting with Dayna Tames and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dayna, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I started Tameless Lash Artistry because I wanted to build a lash salon and academy where integrity and customer experience are top priority. I’m passionate about this craft and it saddens me to see subpar work and education in many areas of the lash industry. There’s a need for something different. This is why at TLA we focus on the artistry aspect of lashing and not the commercial side. Nothing is more important than the health and integrity of your natural lashes and every set of lashes created is thoughtfully constructed to meet each one of your specific needs. We’re also partnered with Bella Lash, one of the worlds largest lash companies, to bring the highest standard of education to our students that’s backed by award winning artistry.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Currently, I’m most excited about our Classic Courses. Students experience two days of undivided attention and in person coaching while learning the fundamentals of Classic lashing and beyond. They dive deep into online theory, prior to coming to class and must complete and pass multiple tests before coming to their in person training. This means our students build a greater understanding of lashing and leaves room for hours of hands on practice where they can work on models under the supervised guidance of myself. They can focus on perfecting practical techniques and create a foundation that’s built for success. Students will not be certified for just attending class. Unlike other trainings, they must send in multiple case studies and they must be approved by Tameless Lash Artistry and Bella Lash. This sets our students apart and puts them miles ahead.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
I would take them hiking in Sedona and we’d stop at The Hudson for a drink and the gorgeous view. We’d go hiking down Horton Creek Trailhead in Payson and have lunch at Mikes Fish and Chips (seriously, the best fish fry you’ll ever taste.) We’d find some time to go tubing down the salt river and if they’re up for it… spelunking in Pepper Sauce Caves in Oracle.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My shoutout goes to Trina Dial Horne from Maven Artistry. I took my first volume training with her and it changed the trajectory of my career. She’s an expert in our field, an inspiration and a true artist. I highly recommend her courses and can’t wait to train with her again.
