Eyelash extension equipment is not cheap, and neither are the treatments you offer your clients!
What can you both do to ensure you’re getting the most out of your lashes?
Here are some tips to ensure you and your clients get the best out of your products:
All products have a shelf life that should be rigidly adhered to.
When you open a new product, write the date on it with a permanent marker so that you can keep track of how long it has been open. Eyelash extension glue/adhesive will last for three months once opened, or six months unopened. After this it must be discarded; our eyes are just too important to risk damaging them. It’s unlikely a tube of adhesive will last you three months before you run out any way, but if that does happen, why not run a special offer for a weekend (before the glue goes out of date) to use it up and attract new clients in the process?
Keep all of your products at room temperature – and I don’t mean a room in the heat of summer!
If products are kept somewhere too hot or too cold, their performance will be affected. Ensure your treatment room (or stock cupboard) is kept at a reasonable temperature, all the time and you will hopefully not have to replace products that have spoiled in the heat or cold.
Ensure you have enough stock of wholesale sealers, primers and mascara to sell to your clients.
If they leave your salon with a great look, and the means to keep that great look for longer, they are more likely to return. Never leave it til the last minute to order more stock; if you let your client down, they may go elsewhere to get what they need. Keep an eye on the AH Francis website for offers; you could grab yourself a real bargain.
Even if your client visits regularly, make sure you refresh them on aftercare procedures. Make sure they know how they can maintain their eyelash extensions and keep them looking fabulous for longer.
