Hanna Babanakava

Guest Speaker

Hey-hey! My name is Hanna, I was born in Belarus and lived there over 20 years. I started business in 2013 in Grodno, Belarus. I received training in hairdressing, makeup, nails (European degrees), and courses in brow modelling and microblading, all kinds of depilation and mehndi design. But Lash making was always my real passion. My vocation as a teacher is to provide unique strongest practical and knowledge base with continuous support after the course as well as raising the next generation of top-quality lash artists, lash champions, and brilliant trainers.

Angel Wings® is an international company that provides top quality eyelash extension services, supplies and training with head office in Montreal, Canada. We are proud of our responsible approach, high standards and outstanding client care. We passionately love what we do and want to share this love and passion with other lash artists!

After I moved to Canada and started working in 2017 I re-branded my company, created something much bigger and better. Now its popularity grows all over the world as we connect lash technicians in several ambitious projects. – Lash global™ Championship – the biggest international championship in Canada – Lash Global Conference – the biggest international conference in Canada – Lash Global magazine – the 1st international lash magazine that is based in Canada, started January 2018 – CatFight™ Championship series online – a unique project of championship series that are divided to independent Rounds, that have different rules, different judges and different prizes. It is very affordable and fast going. Started March 2018 – Lash Expert™ platform – online training and lessons for lash artists of any experience – Lash Global junior conference online “The Big Fish” (December 2018) – Lash Global Show – Series of thematic interviews with lash stars and discussions on special hot topics with all the dirty secrets “from the other side” of the industry. …and we have even more projects coming in the near future! – Nominated by Lash Industry Inspirational Person Awards for Most inspirational industry influencer

QUALITY FREAK My idea of quality services and supplies. I never wanted to work with cheap, low quality supplies or to do a very inexpensive (and, as a result, inferior) work. I’m a quality freak. That’s why I went to championships to learn what I’m worth. My prices have always been premium, but my clients know what they are paying for. Currently Angel Wings does not accept new clients and only provides services to our regular customer base. Applying this idea of perfect quality to lash supplies, I had a vision to create the best line of lash product to work with. As a multiple lash champion and prize winner I received lots of presents and had a chance to try many brands some of them good and others not so good. I put together all desired qualities like 20-line boxes, non-sticky covers, no glue residue, absolute minimum of short defective lashes in a lash tray, a uniform curl, a good grip, keeping the curl well, and many others. I have spent time collecting my expert knowledge about lash supplies. After 8 more months of testing and research I was able to design the product line I had dreamt of.

From Champion to champions. Our adhesive is made on Korean factory for my special demand. It was first made in 2017 to match the needs of Lash Championship participants. As a Champion myself, Judge and Sponsor I gave it to the winners of Strictly come lashes championship, UK, the best try I could have and surprisingly it became and still is our best seller. It went through a few adjustments. There were 2 main types in the beginning I was choosing from to find the final one. Now I have stopped on the formulation I personally and most of my old buyers like most.

I care and love my vocation, so it makes me extremely proud to offer Angel Wings product line I have created.


Angel Wings Lashes 20 LINES PER TRAY! Light lines for making every lash visible Top quality Ultra soft and flexible Easy fanning (if you have a skill of course) Nice natural deep black color Medium matte texture No blue shades and other colors in black No big gaps between the lashes No glue residue on lashes No stickies on tops Beautiful luxury and fall damage resistant box

Angel Wings Champion glue Fast, for volumes and classic Not thick (thin) by structure Oil and water resistant – unique in the global market! Always has a manufacturing date Has a detailed instruction in every box Latex free, formaldehyde free Carbon free in transparent version Good for sensitive clients Amazing retention – bonding power 50 days Doesn’t need any sealants or top coating Not tested on animals Follows the general requirements for North America and EU Downloadable MSDS on a sales page

Angel Wings Tweezers Designed by a champion-lashmaster for champions! Spotless! Hand tested Hand adjusted Stainless steel Non-magnetic (non-static) Double action – Easy fan, easy grip. Video proof of double-testing for every pair!

EDUCATION I never considered getting noticed or being invited to events by other technicians. However, in only one year I’ve become a judge and a speaker in over 15 international lash events and a highly demanded trainer. I understand that staying in one place in the lash industry makes the value of your work steadily decline. New trends emerge and new techniques appear all the time. Additional information gets revealed be it new facts about the lash glue or something entirely novel, which requires further study and experimentation. This is what draws me as a speaker to be one of the people who does research for the benefit of our industry, brings up and pours light on new and unexplored topics. The idea of offering fellow lash artists something new and useful is truly inspiring to me. That’s why I aim to create many ways to share the knowledge. Lash Global championship and conference brings together the best lash specialists from all over the world. Also, I have launched an online platform for courses and lessons. Aside from that I offer many absolutely free options to learn including my YouTube channel, professional blog, Facebook and Instagram community groups, as well as Lash Global magazine.

Training is all about innovation. Classic and Volume extensions are already old news. Nowadays most of the clients want volume extensions. But to provide this service new lash technicians need to go through two periods of training (classic and then volume) and spend a significant amount of time practicing before they start their volume course. My innovative program including both classic and volume online courses saves the student time and money. I collect my knowledge all over the world and add my own experience and inventions. This allows my students achieve better results faster. Overall, we offer many other live and online unique training courses with the information you will never find on other lash courses including: – Photo portfolio for lash artist – Special effects in eyelash extensions (Volume advanced training) – Expert volume (mega volumes and volume quality perfection) – Expert modeling – detailed styling analysis – One-hour volume speed-up – Championship preparation – Training trainers and trainers certification – Lash Expert special lessons online.
