Taking a trip back in time…
Ardell were naturally inspired by the magical birth of false eyelashes. If you didn’t know already, the first false eyelashes were thought to have been created in 1916 from the demands of D.W Griffiths, a film director seeking to make his leading lady, Seena Owen, look as glamorous as possible in the film INTOLERANCE. He contacted a wigmaker who could combine human hair into gorse mesh to weave onto the actresses natural lashes. D.W Griffiths knew instantly this was the birth of something incredibly special and glamorous that women the world over would want to recreate.
Inspired by the goings-on in the early 1900s, in 1971 Arnold Miller founded the Ardell brand alongside his wife Sydell and through combining their first names Ardell was born. Their mission was simple: Give women a way to make their eyes beautiful and unforgettable. Their success started by the introduction of their first line of individual lashes, Duralashes which is still a very popular product in the Ardell lash range today.
Fast-forward 9 years to 1980 and the ever successful brand was purchased by beauty giants American International Industries, who gave the brand the means to enhance their range to not only selling one of the world’s largest collection of high quality, easy to use false lashes but also a collection of cosmetics and brow products.

Whether you prefer understated and natural, bold and flashy or Disney magic, there will be something in Ardell lash collection with your name on it.
