Ive always wanted to get my eyebrows done but was always hesitant to trust anyone but I’m very glad I trusted Hailan. She took her time in perfecting the shape and symmetry and looks exactly how I wanted them to look. I also got my eyelashes done by Angel. Ive had lash extensions before but Angel exceeded my expectations and retention has been great! Both are very meticulous in their work and would highly reccomend HQ Beauty Care to anyone as their prices are very well reasonable.

I was a unsure if skin tightening would work for men as well as it does for women. I tried microneedling for the first time and I was simply amazed at the results which is a more youthful (Im oldish) and glowing facial complexion that lasts. If your a man that has crows feet or forehead wrinkles I would highly recommend that you book a free consultation with Hailan to see what she recommends.
— Jim Kootnekoff
Just got my eyebrows done with the Phibrows method at HQ and was so impressed with the professional technique and finished look.

Thanks to Hailan, I’m now a certified lash tech! I couldn’t ask for a better teacher, she went as slow as I needed and made sure I understood everything before moving onto the next chapter, she is patient and easy going and I had the best experience learning from her! She has so much knowledge and it shows through her teachings.. She also made it easy for me to afford the course through fair payments! Anyone who’s looking for a career in lashes definitely consider Hailan, thank you again! 🙂
— Rae-Anne Kane
I had a great experience with HQ Beauty! I got my eyelash extensions done by Angel and she was fantastic. I use Kat Von D eyeliner (good stuff) and I guess I didn’t get all of it off so it made her job a little bit more difficult to get the lashes to stick... but she took her time and made sure it was done right!
— Hope Tornberg
Amazing service by Angel, she didn’t rush and she made sure each lash was perfect before I left. She was super kind, and did an outstanding job. I got so many compliments, and will definitely be coming back soon :)

Hailan is meticulous! I have gone to many others for lashes and she is definitely the best. I have very thin, short lashes. Hailan gives me these thick, voluminous lashes. I have also had my brows microbladed by Hailan. I was always weary of the process. Because of Hailan’s professionalism, I knew I could trust her. They turned out wonderfully too.
— Anna Wong
I ave been going to Hailan for my lashes for a few years now, I have also had microblading, lash enhancement eyeliner tattoo.
Recently I saw her for microneedling and I was not disappointed. No pain and great results. She never ceases to amaze me with her attention to detail in every aspect of what she does, as well as her being so gentle and kind during each visit.
I have recommended her to many of my family and friends who have also loved each visit with Hailan.
I would highly recommend her to anyone for any of her services. You will not be disappointed!!!
— Cara-Leigh Cox
Hailan is a last genius! She helped pick a style that would compliment my eye shape, when I was unsure what would look best. I couldn’t be happier with the end result. I’ve maintained my natural lashes which was an issue with other lash techs in the past.
Talking to her felt like talking to a friend I’ve known forever. Affordable service, quality lashes and a relaxing room—what more could you ask for!
I highly recommend her !!!
— Rhianna Graham

I have seen Hailan for eyelash extensions....I was reluctant at first as my previous experience at a well known salon was quite negative.my daughter encouraged me to try hq beauty. I am thrilled. Hailan is such a perfectionist and is gentle and informative.
I have been complimented over and over about how lovely and natural my lashes look.
I recommend coming here before you go anywhere else!

Hailan is a pro! I was recommended to go see Hailan for microneedling. Firstly, she was so accommodating with making my schedule work with hers, both for the consultation and the actual procedure. Secondly she took lots of time to explain everything to me, from the actual process to after care. It’s been a few weeks since and I’m soo impressed with my results. I can’t wait for my next appointments.

I have had my lashes done by both Hailan and Angel and I can say that I will not go to anybody else for my lashes. They both do such amazing work, they don’t rush and they’re both perfectionists! My fills last way longer then I was expecting when I first decided to get lash extensions. I highly recommend either of these ladies!
— Melissa Antonopoulos
I had my microblading and eyeliner done with HQ Beauty Care. Best decision ever! My brows and eyeliner look amazing! Hailan did an awesome job.

— Annie Loiese Retuya
The amount of compliments I’ve gotten over my lashes are overwhelming! I’m referring everyone to this place, they really listen to what you’re looking for, specially Angel. She was a sweetheart and made the whole procedure feel less scary for a first timer, while still providing amazing service and skill!

Hailan takes great pride in her work, I had an amazing experience with her and her trainee Angel! Both were very welcoming and excellent at what they do. I would highly recommend choosing HQ Beauty Care! My lashes look so full and natural even after 4 weeks.
— Jill O'Connell
Hailan is fantastic! I saw her a few weeks ago for my first eyebrow microblading and it was a great experience. She really took her time to make sure I was happy with the shape and she wasn’t at all pushy with what she thought was best. Everything was clean and sterile...and the table was so comfortable! I was a little nervous about getting permanent make-up, but Hailan continually checked to see if I was comfortable or in any pain. My brows have healed wonderfully, and I am so happy with the shape and detail. I would 100% recommend going to Hailan for eyebrow microblading!!
— Rebecca Schroth
Hailan is nothing short of amazing! She is dedicated and also a perfectionist which is what you want when it comes to your face.

I highly recommend Hailan for any of your cosmetic needs!

Hailan has done my lashes for a while now and she is the best lash artist I’ve ever been to so when I decided to learn to do lashes I wanted to learn from the best!! After taking Hailan’s lash course, I feel confident and eager to do lashes. She taught me all of the basics, plus her own tips to which are the most helpful while learning. She was extremely patient with me throughout the entire process and reaches out to check on you and give feedback even after the course is over. If you are thinking of doing lashes you have to take Hailan’s course, she is honestly the best and has given me everything I need and more to become a successful lash tech! -Megan Ng

Update on my Micro Needling, my face has never looked better and my crows feet are gone! If you have ever thought about doing this procedure Its a must with Hailan, No pain what so ever. Highly recommended. I will be back to see her to remove more wrinkles
— Chris Aune
The micro needling has made a noticeable difference to my eyelids & eyebrow area. Very natural looking. The first 5-7 days the skin was darker but after 2 weeks now it’s gone back to my natural colouring. Will probably do the procedure again next year if the results last 6-8 months.

I visited this place because it had amazing reviews, but I didn’t expect her to be so patient and so meticulous with her work. This was my first time with extensions and she answered all my questions and took the time to find out what looked best for my eyes. Y’all, it was so relaxing!!! So worth the drive!!
— Sahar Elkadri

I would highly recommend Hailan for any procedure, her passion for the work she does is far beyond what I have experienced anywhere else. I had by eyebrows done and the time she took with me the 1st time was so thorough so I totally understood the procedure. Then when I had a touch up done a year later...I was totally amazed at how much time & dedication she gave me to be sure I was totally happy with the results....which I am very satisfied. Fantastic work Hailan and wishing you much success in your new location.
— Laura Stewart

An acquaintance recommended Hailan to me after my not so great experience at a popular lash bar. I’ve been seeing Hailan for about a year and a half on and off for lash extensions. Not only is Hailan so nice, kind, and funny, she does amazing work with lashes! She is knowledgeable, meticulous, gentle, and takes great pride in her work. I’m relaxed in Hailan’s studio, and like another reviewer, have also fallen asleep while Hailan worked her magic. Hailan is truly an expert and I would not trust my lashes to anyone else! Thank you Hailan!
— Amelie Comeau

I am so glad I came to see Hailan for my microblading!!! She was very thorough and explained the process step by step. I was so nervous and she took the time to reassure me and make sure I was comfortable with the process. She is very friendly and she doesn’t rush!! My eyebrows are beyond anything I ever expected. I LOVE THEM! I get so many compliments on the job she had done.
Thanks Hailan!!
— Missy Oh's
Hailan is truly a professional! As a nurse I was very conscious of her clean protocols not only for her but for myself. My brows look so completely natural with whiffs of my sparse blond natural ones adding to the texture. I highly recommend Hailan for any permanent makeup needs!
— Karen Lefkowith
Love my lash extensions!! Very professional service. Hailan does a amazing work, she is very friendly and very talented. She also uses High quality lashes that last me for so long.

— Ariane Villamayor
I did my training for the Basic Lash Extension Course with Hailan at her New Brighton location. She was very accommodating about the training days, her set up was very clean, and she had all the proper tools, tips and tricks to show me. I definitely felt confident after training with her., She uses the best products for the lash extensions and made sure I was sent home with the same. I would absolutely recommend her for training to anyone.

Hailan was amazing at Micro Blading my eyebrows. Her friendly nature, professional approach and attention to detail are incredible! I highly recommend Hailan if you are looking to get your brows done. She really took the time to make sure the shape and color were perfect before starting and then went over them 3 times to make sure she didnt leave any strokes out. I cannot rave enough about how much I love my result and how Hailan really is an expert in her field.
— Briony Langejans
So I got my first set of lashes I ever got (Before HQ saved me) hurt so much after the first day for like three days. I took such good care of them still, and luckily my naturals were not too harmed due to the bad set I got. I then googled best lashes in Calgary and came across HQ Beauty and booked with Yuri and her wonderful co worker Halian( who did my removal of the bad ones and saved my life with the new set!). She was absolutely wonderful, very clean and comfortable and she had the funniest parrot talking in the background (very entertaining to say the least). She was very knowledgeable about her work and explained that the problem my first set with someone else was that they glued together more than one lash and glued to the skin(very common issue that happens when going cheap :( do NOT GO CHEAP with lashes!!! Find the people that know what theyre doing and take their time to care for you not rush). To explain how well her service was I fell asleep throughout the service cause of how relaxed I was, i wouldnt of been able to sleep through my first experience...nope. I highly recommend HQ to anyone especially first timers like me. Safe to say Im lash addicted now and look forward to seeing the girls again :)
— Sara Hernandez
Whether it is my eyelash extensions or my eyebrows I am always 100% satisfied and receive non-stop compliments on both.
— Anita Hegwood
I drive 40 minutes every 2 weeks to go see her there are so many other lash technicians in Calgary that are so much closer but I don’t trust anyone but her to touch my eyes. I had previous experience prior to her where the tech glued all my lashes together so i was very picky and did a lot of reschearch and she’s the one I picked and iv been seeing her since . She is such a sweetheart! I love that she takes her time to make sure your lashes are perfect and doesnt rush through it and not to mention her work is amazing the fluffiness lashes ever!
— Derin Cheikh

Hailan is the BEST at eyelash extensions. She is a complete professional and genuinely cares about her customers. Her place is very clean and her work is the best that I have seen (for an amazing price too!). Hailan does a fabulous job with my eyelashes regularly and makes them more dramatic for the weddings I’ve had this year (without making them over the top). I recommend her for anyone looking to get their lashes done!!
