Tania Withers is the founder of The Beauty Training Group, has over 9 years solid, hands-on experience in the industry. She owns a busy & successful Beauty Salon - Lashings of Beauty & Training - and regularly carries out treatments, in order to bring students the most up to date knowledge, based on her personal experiences. She boasted a full client base, many of which have been with her since she began. But Tania chose to put down her tweezers in Sept 2019 to continue to drive her businesses forward. She continues to work on compuetition sets and steps in at the salon when required and even though she is an educator herself, she continually trains in various ways to keep her knowledge and skills at a high level.


On top of Tania's broad range of beauty qualifications, she holds a valid AET (PTTLS) Teaching Certificate to help her teach a wide range of students in various ways. Tania also holds NVQ level 2 & 3 in Customer Service and this is important to her.


Tania is well respected within the industry and many fellow Therapists will contact her for advice and support, which confirms she is not only knowledgeable in her field, but also an approachable individual who enjoys supporting others. She has trained many other Beauty Educators and many of Tania's students return for further courses, due to the high level in which they are delivered and also because of the lifelong aftercare support they receive.


Tania is a regular feature writer in the Lash-Ed Magazine for Julie Knight and is a Workshop Host at the 2020 Lash Conference in Cardiff, hosted by Arianne Angove - Events by Always Bonita Beauty.


The Beauty Training Group has been designed to offer High Quality Beauty Training Courses, at affordable prices. Aftercare support and customer service is at the forefront of our business. As The Beauty Training Group continues to grow, more areas of the UK (and possibly further afield!) will be accessible to students.


Tania has worked hard over the last few years to produce a range of high quality Lash Extension products and Accessories. Her product range will continue to expand so that students can receive excellent training with excellent products, at affordable prices.


When training with Tania, you will not only receive basic training, but will also be given additional hints, tips and knowledge from the Master Lash Artist and Advanced Lash Stylist, who is classed as one of the best Eyelash Technicians in the South West. Tania is well respected for her vast knowledge and experience and is a sought after educator, renowned for extremely supportive lifelong support, even after the course is complete. Tania was ranked 1st Worldwide in 2016 Eyelash Emporium Lash Festival. 


- Tania ranked NUMBER 1 in the Lash Festival 2016 Classic Lash Category
- Tania ranked 7th Worldwide in the Lash Festival 2015 lash contest


Tania is a proud sponsor of many Lash Events and Conferences too and enjoys supporting fellow Lash Masters with their events.

She has also written The Lash Adhesive Bible which has been a huge seller across the UK to all levels, from Beginner to Educator. This can be purchased via our online shop

Business Mentoring is something Tania is now working on developing, due to being approached by several Lash Artists, Salon Owners and general Business Owners who are looking for additional and confidential support.
