Insurance is something that seems like a nuisance until we need it right? A bit like when my dining room ceiling literally collapsed on top of the dinner table and just missed my head. Being lath and plaster, it would most certainly have knocked me out. I know, it might have knocked some sense into me as my mother would say! At least I was insured, otherwise it would have been very, very expensive on the pocket!
However, it’s important to make sure that you are insured and the training you do is accredited somewhere to enable you get insurance for the treatments you are doing. I have heard of therapists pulling their hair out as eyelash extension clients threaten to sue. Usually it does not come to anything, but one day, it just might so, be prepared. Continue reading
This morning was our broccoli breakfast club. You may have read in my previous blogs about the famous green breakfast club where we eat breakfast together and talk about everything from business development, personal development, health issues, what kind of curtains should go on this window or that window….etc, etc, etc. Continue reading
A video blog for you this week!!! If you are not doing lash lifting, you are missing out! I hope it inspires you.
As lashpreneurs, we need to do everything we can to avoid eyelash extension reactions occurring so I thought a quick reminder of how to avoid the dreaded reaction scenario would be useful. My golden rule for the last twenty five years is ‘If in doubt, leave it out’ and it has served me well. You know when you go against that voice inside that says “better not do this client” and it proves to be right. Always listen to your inner lashpreneur wisdom!!
Eyelash extension reactions depend on a number of factors, so let’s re-cap on the various points concerning safety and minimising the possibility of false eyelash reactions.
False eyelash patch testing is fundamental and you must put 2-4 lashes on one eye and leave for 48 hours. What is the point of just putting glue behind the ear when it’s no-where near the eye? Continue reading
I have had lots of conversations this week about removing eyelash extensions. It’s not so often that we have to remove lashes, but we have to remember that if clients are having standard eyelash extension products applied they really should.
Often clients forget how their natural lashes were and they get very used to having thick, luscious lashes, so you can reassure them that nothing has happened to their lashes whilst they were wearing eyelash extensions. They just got used to more length and thickness!!!
Express Lashes, however wonderful they are, do need proper removal. You are layering lashes on and obviously sticking lashes together, so it’s crucial to make sure clients come in to the salon within a two week period (preferably) to have them removed. They can, if they wish have a new set put straight on, but if they are going to continue, it’s a good time to convert to proper eyelash extensions for prolonged, uninterrupted wear!!!
I have been looking at some really ridiculous images lately and thought it would be a great topic for this week’s blog as everyone keeps asking about 6D Lashes. It’s all very well loading your client’s eyelash extensions on, but will they be able to see? Extreme I know, but having loads and loads on might look nice if you like that sort of thing, but they will be so uncomfortable. Imagine the weight on the client’s eyelids! Her daily life will become the eyelash gym and her eyelids will start growing muscles!
Joking aside, there comes a time when eyelashes are eyelashes whatever you call them. People just want gorgeous long eyelash extensions that look amazing. They don’t want to have eyelids that get tired of holding the weight of masses of lashes and they certainly don’t want to be irritated all day by the work of an over enthusiastic therapist.
