Frankie Widdows


Frankie Widdows is the CEO of Eyelash Excellence ™ and Nail and Beauty Excellence. Although originally trained in all things beauty she knew that her passion was for nails and lashes.

Frankie’s creative flair originally led her down the path of focusing most of her attention to that of nails, earning her a reputation for producing some very unique nails designs with her love of animals being the theme of many of her bespoke  creations.

However, Frankie’s creativity was also evidenced in her lash work, where she soon found her other passion and realised that she had a real natural talent for eyelash extensions.

Frankie soon realised that she had to make the tough decision to focus solely on one area and she decided to pursue Eyelash Extensions.  This lead her to become a Master Lash Artist, International trainer, Mentor, Celebrity lash stylist, Lash Judge, Guest speaker and developer of Lash products.

Prior to Frankie’s career within the beauty industry, she served as a Police officer within the K9 department for 10 years until venturing on to her new path into the beauty industry.

Frankie’s businesses have flourished and continue to develop and expand year after year. Over these years she has been assisted by her small hand selected team, these include ex students of hers that she has seen grow and develop into amazing  technician’s whom share her same ethos and passion.

Frankie’s training academy is based in the South East of England, but due to demand she travels worldwide to deliver her unique in person training. Inventively Frankie also developed her courses to be online so that her training is now accessible to anyone!
