Rana Hamadani

Owner and Lash extension educator

Thank you for considering me as your trusted educator. You have hundreds of training options at your fingertips, and you should be picky! Allow me to tell you about my personal style and philosophy when it comes to teaching. 

Before starting my career in esthetics, I spent over a decade designing, development and instructing classes in the workplace. No matter how busy my life was, I LOVED training and felt energized by the opportunity to give others new tools and techniques that could ultimately make their work-life better. 

When I started my lash journey, I was astonished at how limited my training options where in the Richmond area. I struggled for over a year to “teach myself” the tips and tricks, proper application, and lash safety protocols necessary to offer a great service. 

All the team members at Sage & Vine Aesthetics have been trained by me, because I believe in consistency and standards. As my student, you get all the same information. All the products and supplies provided mirror what we use at Sage & Vine Aesthetics. No secrets, no holding back. I truly believe that if the Richmond lash community can advance as a whole, we all win.
