Prabh Sandhran, Educator

Prabh was born and raised in India and moved to Canada in 2014 searching for a life and new education opportunities.

She started working at Plush in 2016 as an esthetician, and the only service she knew at the time was brow threading. She really found it rewarding making her clients feel beautiful with just doing eyebrows. Prabh started taking more interest in the beauty industry, received more training, and provided most of the spa services for five years. However, her passion for brows kept growing and she decided to pursue education and training for Nano brows (semi permanent brow tattooing). After doing nano brows or 2.5 years, she also completed her training for lip Blushing a year ago. Now her main focus is Permanent Makeup and teaching the 2 day lash extension courses. Her goal in the future is to also teach permanent makeup.

‘My true love is when my clients leave my room feeling beautiful, happy and confident.’
