Heather Polak is a professional permanent make-up artist and Xtreme Lashes stylist. She has worked within the beauty industry since 1986.
Heather was trained in the art of Micropigmentation (permanent make-up) at an accredited institute in New Jersey in 2006. She has received her advanced certification and has attended many ongoing training programs since then. She believes it is extremely important to stay up to date with all the latest application products and techniques.
In 2007 Heather was trained as an Xtreme Lashes stylist in New York. She received her certification that same year after returning to Canada to live in Kelowna B.C. At that time Heather was the only person in the Okanagan Valley offering the Xtreme Lashes service and one of only seven people listed on the Xtreme Lashes National Directory for Canada. In 2009 and 2012 Heather attended the Advanced Xtreme Lashes training program in Los Angeles and Calgary, and displays this knowledge in her Xtreme lashes applications.
Most recently, Heather has trained with a very talented and well known tattoo artist, Stacey Rae. She was trained in 3D nipple tattooing, and received her certification in May 2017 for the Areola Restorative Tattooing. Heather is now officially part of the A.R.T. Team! Heather is continually referred to by local physicians due to her high quality of work and attention to detail.
