History of House of Lashes

House of Lashes was founded in 2012 to create a line of high-quality, affordable and cruelty-free false eyelashes that are inclusive to all eye shapes and sizes.

Jenn Chiba, the founder of House of Lashes, created the brand initially on a small scale, financed by family funds to fill a gap in the lash market. Jenn is a dedicated animal lover, passionate about creating cruelty-free beauty products. She truly believes that everyone should be able to experience the transformative power of false eyelashes without compromising their values.

Are House of Lashes Vegan Friendly?

Yes! Most House of Lashes are vegan friendly, especially as they are made from synthetic fibres. However, it’s best to check the packaging, as some lashes are not vegan friendly.

HOL adhesives are also 100% cruelty-free, making them an excellent choice for those purchasing ethical cruelty-free products.

House of Lashes Range & Styles

House of Lashes offers a large selection of lashes in various styles, ranging from natural-looking to dramatic. Whether you’re hoping for a subtle everyday look or something bolder for special occasions, House of Lashes has something for everyone.

We stock many House of Lashes products — false strip lashes, individual lashes, glues and accessories, including eyelash curlers and a waterproof lash case.

Here are our House of Lashes favourites and why we love them:

We love these Iconic Lite lashes because their iconic and lightweight design makes them perfect for everyday wear. The ultra-thin band is designed to blend seamlessly with natural lashes, giving a fuller and more voluminous look.

Siren is one of House of Lashes' most popular styles, offering a dramatic look that will make others look twice. HOL make the crisscross patterned textured lashes with high-quality synthetic fibres, and the band is thin and flexible, making them comfortable and easy to apply.

  • House of Lashes — Opulent Noir

Opulent Noir are… opulent and dramatic! These are perfect for evening looks and special occasions. The thick, multi-faceted design adds a hint of drama to your look, while the flexible band ensures these false lashes stay put all day long.

You can get full-on Boudoir or these; Boudoir Lite, which are lovely lashes graduated to perfection. The medium-length lash has a subtle to dramatic curl, giving you a sultry look without the heaviness of some of the other HOL styles.

HOL also sell a comprehensive range of bottom lashes, not lashes for your backside… but false eyelashes for your lower lid.

Other products that House of Lashes make that we love:

  • House of Lashes — Flawless Precision Lash Applicator

When you need precision, this applicator is your go-to tool. Perfect for applying HOL lashes and individual false lashes, this applicator is lightweight, easy to use and makes application a breeze.

How to Apply House of Lashes — Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Begin by preparing your false lashes — Measure the strip to fit your eye shape, then trim any excess with a pair of lash scissors.
  2. Apply HOL adhesive to the HOL band, starting from the centre and working outwards. Allow a few moments for the glue to become tacky before applying them to your eyes.
  3. Position your false lashes close to the lash line, ensuring they are secure and comfortable.
  4. Use an eyelash curler or house of lashes applicator to delicately press your false eyelashes into place, paying extra attention to where the lash band meets your natural lash line for a seamless look.
  5. Fill any gaps with eyeliner, and your look is good to go.

One of the most typical questions asked is how can you clean your House of Lashes’ false eyelashes so you can extend their life. It’s pretty simple! All you need is a gentle, oil-free cleanser and some lukewarm water.

To begin, remove your false eyelashes from their package and dip them into the lukewarm water with a few drops of cleansing solution. Gently rub both sides of the lashes to remove any makeup build-up or excess glue. Once you’re done, lay them out to air dry on a clean towel.

Are House of Lashes Reusable?

Yes, House of Lashes eyelash products are reusable! If you take good care of your false eyelashes, they can last a long time (up to 10 wears) when properly cleaned and stored.

To extend the life of your lashes, we highly recommend using our House of Lashes Lash Adhesive and Lash Cleanser, as these are specifically designed to be gentle on your false eyelashes.
