  • 1. MEET SOPHY MERSZEI As president of NovaLash EyeLash Extensions, Sophy Merszei is literally an eyeful — beautiful, brainy and full of energy and dedication to NovaLash. Ms. Merszei received her Bachelor's of Arts from University of Southern California and continued her education in the PhD program for molecular biology at University of Houston. Sophy’s background and interest in beauty can be traced to her girlhood affinity for cosmetics, as she worked in the cos- metics industry since the age of fourteen. As an educated chemist, with an emphasis on cosmetic chemistry, she has worked diligently to create NovaLash, the nation’s first lash extension manufacturing company. Armed with considerable research and a commitment to product superiority, Sophy is committed to creating medically approved products that are safe and reliable enough for use around the delicate eye area, in vast contrast to similar unregulated products on the market. The result has been a highly successful corporate launch, highlighted by an honor as ICMAD’s 2007 Cosmetic Innovator of the Year for her work formulating the NovaLash Platinum Bond Adhesive. Sophy’s commitment to product safety and superiority extends to the education and training of NovaLash employees and lash stylists, where NovaLash can — as with its adhesives and other product offerings, lay claim as the industry leader. “It’s been an ‘eye-opening’ experience to say the least,” said Sophy Merszei, commenting on the hot trend driving her lash extension business. “We see our NovaLash extensions as an ‘instant pretty’ for any woman looking for longer, fuller lashes.” “Our lashes are hypoallergenic, single lashes — available in a host of styles and colors, with a natural curve that replicates a natural lash. They are meticulously applied lash-by-lash with physician-approved, medically safe adhesives, to upper and lower lashes, where they enhance any woman’s beauty. They are weightless, wonderful and truly transformative.” In addition to her role as CEO of NovaLash, Sophy is an active member of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists and frequently writes for several industry publications. She is an expert speaker on the subjects of eyelash extensions, permanent cosmetics and cosmetic chemistry. Sophy was named VIP Woman of the Year in the cosmetic industry by The National Association of Professional Women in 2010. She currently resides in Houston, TX where she has opened her own semi-permanent makeup studio, The Lash Co., which specializes in NovaLash eyelash extensions.
  • 2. OUR STORY: CREATING LUSCIOUS LASHES WORLDWIDE The beauty, luxury and glamour of mile-long, dark, lush lashes without the use of mascaras and eyelash curlers is a beauty aspiration for most women. Since the dawn of recorded history, women have sought to make themselves more beautiful by enhancing and adorning their eyes using makeup and eyelash curlers as part of a beauty regimen. Now anyone can possess this coveted beauty attribute with the award-winning, NovaLash EyeLash Extensions. These state-of-the-art lash exten- sions are synthetic lashes bonded to the natural lash on a lash-by-lash basis using physician-formulated, medical-grade adhesives. Since eyelashes define the eye’s natural allure and beauty at the lash line, NovaLash EyeLash Extensions act to beautifully enhance the length, fullness and color of natural lashes. NovaLash is the leader in the field of eyelash extensions and is committed to providing safe, beautiful, flawless eyelash extensions to enhance any woman’s natural beauty. NovaLash was created by a team of physicians and scientists from the University of Houston and Baylor College of Medicine. Because Houston is home to the world’s largest medical center, NovaLash was able to collaborate with a number of health care professionals including doctors, nurses, chemists and toxicologists to produce and perfect the safest possible products and techniques. NovaLash lashes last upwards of 6 to 8 weeks, correlating to the natural lash lifecycle, and will require replacements, fills or touch up service(s) to replace lashes which have “cycled out”. The application of NovaLash lashes results in lush, long-lasting, eye-opening lashes for each wearer. NovaLash has made sound decisions regarding research and development, quality and training while setting the industry standard(s) for safety, products and training. NovaLash currently has six different US and International patents pending.

  • 4. STRENGTH P L AT I N U M B O N D B Y N O VA L A S H Eyelash extensions are currently the most profitable service in the entire beauty industry. In order to meet the needs of this fast-growing industry, NovaLash produces the highest quality products and supplies and offers superior physician-developed training courses. NovaLash's award-winning products allow salons and spas to achieve success because of the durability of our adhesive. The biggest challenge that the lash extension industry faces is trouble with inadequate adhesives that do not stick well. For this reason, NovaLash has developed Platinum Bond Adhesive, a physician formulated, medical-grade adhesive that lasts up to four times longer than competing brands. The most durable lash extension adhesive available • Rubber Toughened, Extra Flexible, Extra Strength Bond • Highly resistant to heat and friction • Strength: 3700 PSI (Steel: Steel Tensile Shear) • Color: High Gloss Black • Set Time: 30 to 55 seconds • Viscosity: High • Temperature Range: -65˚ to 280˚ F • Physician Approved • Physician formulated • Medical-grade • Highly waterproof • Oil resistant
  • 5. PURITY SENSITIVE EYES FUME-FREE ADHESIVE BY NOVALASH Dubbed the healthiest lash extension system on the market, this fume-free adhesive was designed for clients with sensitive eyes and allergies. Because your clients deserve the finest products available, NovaLash produces products that are: • Physician Formulated • Medical-grade • Formaldehyde Free as manufactured and d e l i ve re d as confirmed by testing under EPA method TO-11A/ 8315HPLC-UV* • Contain only ingredients approved by the FDA for medical and/or cosmetic use • AEWCA approved • ISO- 10993 • Quality-control manufactured • NovaLash goes to great lengths to eliminate the formation of formaldehyde in its adhesive during the manufacturing process. There are many extra steps followed to purify our adhesives. If these steps are not followed, formaldehyde can form in the bottle as a biproduct of exposure to water vapor in the air. • Once the adhesive bottle is opened for use, diminimis amounts of formaldehyde are produced. The amount of formaldehyde produced during the drying process is not a health hazard.

  • 7. LASH STYLISTS BEAUTY IN A WINK & IN A BLINK NOVALASH LOVE “About a year ago a staff member suggested that we add eyelash extensions to our business. I started to research the various products that were available and came across NovaLash. I was extremely skeptical given the economic situation and that Boardman, Ohio was not a big city were clients had a disposable income for such a service. Over the past year I have seen clients putting off their color services an extra week or two, so how could we introduce a new service and make it successful? We had to be sure that we would be introducing the best product available, the product that would provide the best training. I am pleased to say that NovaLash fit every criterion, the many referrals that we continue to get every day and that our business is up from last year is due to NovaLash. We are so happy with the product that we are thinking of adding the service to another location in 2010.” – Debra Hagan, Supervisor, The Salon and Spa at Macy’s, Boardman, OH “When I opened up Beauty Heaven 2 1/2 years ago I immediately con- tacted NovaLash about training one of our stylists. I was already a big fan, having gotten the service as a client, and knew that at least myself and many of my friends would be getting the service. I was pleasantly surprised when the service took off and we had to train 2 more stylists to keep up with demand. I have been pleased with NovaLash as they have demonstrated themselves to be strong leaders in the eyelash industry — setting trends, providing marketing support and setting a high standard for quality control. I would not consider working with any other company.” – Ann Merin, Owner, Beauty Heaven, Orange County, CA “Just a quick note to tell all those wondering about who the best lash extension company is, wonder no more! It is NovaLash. The product consistency and safety is paramount. The education offered is so important for the safety and comfort of our clients and the added bonus of the confidence to apply the lashes properly for the longest life of the extension. NovaLash has always been there working with me, answering questions and giving me inspiring ideas. Sophia Navarro’s advanced class is a must attend; she is so patient and talented — able to bring out the best in the artist! I love doing lash extensions; it is truly a glamorous career. Thank you NovaLash!” – Aimee Costales, Fayetteville, GA “In June of 2008 I began doing NovaLash Lash extensions. The training was absolutely wonderful, in depth and very helpful. I was very pleased with the quality of NovaLash products. After thoroughly reviewing several others in the market, NovaLash was the best choice for me. I am from a rather small town in the Vidor/Beaumont Texas area but my clients include women from all around. From soccer moms to models; my clients absolutely love their extensions and could not go without. I call almost every week to place orders or get information and the staff is very friendly and helpful and you get to know everyone by name. The sales team offers very personalized service, which to me means a lot. I’m an aesthetician and my extensions definitely overtake my services and hope they do so for years to come!” – Ashley Cornett, Lagniappe Salon, Vidor, TX
  • 8. WHAT ARE NOVALASH LASH EXTENSIONS? NovaLash Eyelash Extensions are a glamorous new way to extend the length and thickness of eyelashes, and are a practical, convenient and beautiful alternative to the daily use of mascara. Unlike decades-old, traditional false lashes, lash extensions are the first innovation in lash lengthening that can be worn daily, without nightly removal. Because each tapered, synthetic lash is bonded to a single natural lash, the final result is natural looking and difficult to detect, even close-up. HOW LONG DO THEY REALLY LAST? When properly applied, using the Platinum Bond Adhesive, NovaLash lash extensions can be worn throughout the year with minimal monthly maintenance. Touch-ups are recommended after the initial full set application to replace any lashes that may have fallen off. To maintain the full, thick appearance of a new set of lashes a visit to your beauty/lash professional is required every 4 weeks. HOW MUCH SHOULD I CHARGE MY CUSTOMERS FOR THIS SERVICE? As with any service, the price should be set in accordance with other services on the menu. Prices currently range between $150 and $500 for a full set. Partial sets can be offered at lower price points to make the service more accessible. CAN LASH EXTENSIONS HARM NATURAL LASHES? When applied properly, lash extensions will not harm natural lashes. NovaLash lash stylist Sophia Navarro has developed a technique that allows natural lashes to grow and thrive with extensions. This technique requires several different “separation” steps during the application process. Since each natural lash must be allowed to grow independently of its neighboring lash, proper lash separation is critical to healthy, successful applications. DO I NEED TO TAKE A TRAINING CLASS? Applying lash extensions can be tricky for some people and good results require not only thorough training, but patience, excellent fine motor skills and good vision. Most professionals who purchase a kit without receiving training, later abandon the service altogether because of poor results. The NovaLash training course is the industry’s only physician-developed course, with an emphasis on increasing extension wear-time, increasing application speed and using the safest, most advanced tools and products. NovaLash Platinum Bond Adhesive is the key to long-lasting lashes and can only be purchased by a certified lash artist. While lash extensions can be an extremely profitable service that sets your business apart from others, applying lashes using the proper technique is required to reap the full financial benefits of the service.
