Lotje Lakt stands for no nonsense nails. In response to the existing, often one-sided and conservative styles that can be found in a lot of nail salons in Antwerp, Lotje founded her own business in 2019 with the idea to bring a slight change to that landscape.
Starting off at The Pony Club, she quickly found her own style and attracted clients who were drawn by an aesthetic that was fresh and a bit different in the field of nail styling in Antwerp.
Exploring colours, textures, shapes and new techniques, Lotje keeps up to date with the newest trends.
Besides salon work, Lotje is a freelance manicurist for fashion productions.
Whether you’re going for a subtle nude or bold and daring nail art, you will walk out with nails that suit your taste and style.
Lenah de Wit is an Antwerp based illustrator who does stick and poke in her tattoo shop Doe ta ni tattoe. She often heard from her friends and acquaintances that her illustrations would lend themselves well to tattoos. At first, she found it scary to draw on people, but in the end, curiosity won and she bought the necessary material. She carefully posted her first flash, her first series of designs, on Instagram under the name Doe ta ni tattoe, which means ‘Don’t Do That Tattoo’ in Flemish. Shortly afterwards she got her first tattoo on her sweetheart’s skin. Since then she hasn’t stopped poking.
After 20 years of hairdressing experience, Hasna Labreg defines herself as a sculptor in the hairdressing industry. In her work, she loves to make different volumes by working with geometric and graphic lines specifically for clientele with a strong own identity to make them happy.
