STYLIST SPOTLIGHT: Sarah Pennington

I Heart Hair loves to showcase other talented men and women in the fashion/beauty industry who are making huge moves. Check out our featured stylist and some of the things she HEARTS!




Name: Sarah Pennington - Eyelash Extension Specialist
What all do you do?: I have been a makeup artist for many years, but specialize in eyelash extensions.  Eyelash extensions are semi permanent synthetic eyelashes that are applied to one natural eyelash at a time.  There are several different lengths, volumes, and curl options available that are mixed together to create a custom eyelash look for each client.

How long have you been in the beauty/fashion industry?: Well, I started my first job with Clinique in 1994!  I have been doing makeup ever since, working for lines such as Laura Mercier and Chantecaille.  I do special occasion and wedding makeup primarily now.  As for eyelash extensions, I trained for the service in September of 2008 and have been doing them ever since.

What is your hair regimen?: I am pretty low maintenance when it comes to my fine, wavy/curly hair.  I shampoo every 2-3 days, and use whatever curl product I happen to have in my closet, and blow dry with my Remington Airwave hair dryer, that has a special attachment to actually twirl my locks as they dry.  I find it helps to keep my waves from getting frizzy and out of control.  I do love to wear my Remy hair clip in extensions that I made myself, to give me extra volume.

What are some of your favorite products?: I love Bobbi Brown concealers, Laura Mercier foundations, my Clairisonic face cleaner, COTZ sunscreen, Fresh Twilight Glow facial illuminator, NARS Albatross highlighting.

What Do You Heart?: Black tea, snorkeling, great fitting jeans, Nest Moroccan Amber candle, a nice Scotch, Tokyo, fresh flowers, dark chocolate, super finds on craigslist and antique stores, and experiencing new cultures through traveling.
