Our Story

Owner and Founder, Samantha DiFilippo was born in Thailand. The American Red Cross helped her and her family relocate to the United States, where she could build a better life. Samantha grew up in San Diego, California and moved to Rhode Island in 2000.  Samantha has always had a passion for the beauty industry and making others feel beautiful, inside and out. However, that passion exploded in 2009 when she began doing eyelash extensions.

In 2013, Samantha took that passion and expertise and created Ch’i Lash. If you’ve ever met Samantha, you would know she loves to promote positive energy, hence the name of her company “Ch’i”, which means positive energy. Samantha is full of gratitude for life, love, joy, peace and happiness. Her motto is “Love what you do with love” and “Achieve happiness and success will follow”.
