OWNER/LASH & BROW ARTIST/LASH EDUCATOR
Fiona started her lash journey back in 2012 when as a lash addict herself decided to learn the meticulous skill of lash extensions to allow herself balance within work life and mum life, leaving her unpredictable roster routine in the travel industry behind her.
Fiona is recognised for her successful business Fiona Harvey Lash & Brow which has steadily grown over the years. In 2018 she launched her new brand Fifth Lash to incorporate her training academy and very own eyelash extension product line.
She is now excited to welcome all clients and students to her new commercial premises providing the luxurious setting she has always dreamed of.
Fiona is a multiple award winning and published artist. She recognises the importance of furthering her education within the industry to allow her and her staff to produce the safest and highest standards of service for all clients.
Lash health is extremely vital which unfortunately is often compromised by other artists. Fiona and her team will always deliver safe and sustainable lash extensions which are perfectly customised to each and every client.
Fiona is also a proud board member of The Association of Registered Lash Artists (ARLA). ARLA was established to support the lash industry with a vision of safer standards for lash artists and consumers alike. She yearly attends Lash Vision Leaders, a conference where a small select group of educators come together to discuss defining an agreed outline of how the lash industry should be regulated. Lash Vision Leaders meet annually to re-evaluate these guidelines and re-define them as needed. It is important to remember the lash industry is young and ever evolving.
When Fiona isn't working she thoroughly enjoys spending time with her husband Tal, and her two boys Aiden and Nixon. She is a lover of sport and when possible likes to hit a few tennis balls or throw out a fishing line. You will find Fiona most mornings working out extremely early at F45 Rototuna.
LASH & BROW ARTIST
Pania is very excited to be apart of the Fifth Lash family and brings her business mind and natural lash talent to the team.
Pania comes from 20 years in fashion business management before taking a leap of faith in herself to start a new career as a lash artist, and considers herself to be very lucky to train and certify under the guidance of Fiona. One of the things she loves most about working in the fashion and beauty industry is being able to unleash her creative passion in styling - "creating something you love just as much as I do!"
A couple of things Pania has learnt about herself on this journey so far is her super power to get people feeling completely relaxed that they fall asleep whilst she works her lash magic.
Pania considers herself to be very patient however her children may say otherwise! She has two beautiful girls in which she enjoys spending time with outside of work, spending quality time with friends and family is extremely important to her.
Pania looks forward to developing her lash and brow skills and advancing in education within the beauty industry.

Neneh was always passionate about the idea of making woman feel their absolute best that she made the move from Brisbane, Australia to attend Hamilton’s Elite International School of Beauty and Spa Therapies where she obtained her Diploma in Beauty Therapy as well as her international qualification through ITEC in 2015.
With Neneh's natural creative flair and aiming for perfection in all that she does, whilst studying she found her love and passion in doing brow shaping and tinting, makeup, waxing and nails where she also won the Celtine Instant Nail Artist Competition judged by the founder of Orly himself, Mr. Pink.
One of the highlights to Neneh's journey since joining the beauty industry is knowing her client’s trust in her to slay their treatments but also building relationships that ultimately result in friendships. You’ll come to find that you’re not only booking to get treatments done by Neneh, you’ll also be coming in for your regular catch up session.
Being given the opportunity to further her skill set by training under the lash industry’s best, Neneh is really excited to being apart of the Fifth Lash family and in time, executing your desired lash goals.
