Tips for Lashing
- Make Sure to check your lash work often for stickies
and proper isolation. Always be aware of the eye pads to ensure they are not sliding up into the clients eyes.
- Sit up Straight and your upper torso should be touching the edge of the lash bed, with feet flat on the floor, and wearing comfortable clothing while lashing. This will prevent back and neck problems. And help you be at the right angle to lash your client your eyes and the clients eyes should almost meet.
- Hair should be tied up, to prevent your hair brushing along clients face as well as preventing glue from getting into your hair.
- Tweezers are very very sharp always have control and know where they are even if you have to quickly look away. They can seriously damage the clients eyes or face.
- Register your Business with the City
- Get Business Insurance, we work around the eyes, any mishaps or accidents to the eyes or the face, could result in being sued.
- Ordering Products are available online or in house.
- You will need to set up an email address, and password to set up an account. for various social media platforms
- Always keep a stock of supplies so you never run out!
Client Waiver Forms & Insurance
It is your duty and law requirements to ensure you have the licence and insurance according to your business. Reach out to any insurance agency for quotes and requirements you may require. Also reach out to your city to find out the requirements for your home/travel based business.
It is also expected to have each client sign a waiver form. Have a lawyer make up your own individual waiver if you do not have one. It is to protect you as a business owner and to
ensure the client is aware of the risks associated with any procedure. Also if you desire to have pictures you also need to include a release to take and use their image on any social media outlet.
Take pictures! Try many different angles and don't forget to brush and review all photos when complete. It is a visual industry and these will make you stand out! Don't be afraid to keep taking photos until you get the right one. Use a great light. Ring lights for phones are a huge benefit and make the shot! Try to avoid overuse of filters. Though they look pretty woman appreciate raw beauty. Many women feel skeptical when there are too many filters being used as a way to cover. Definitely use apps such as facetune to help smooth clients skin avoiding the eye area and distort the background as this helps the eyes pop out.
When editing photos ensure you do not edit the lash line, keep your work authentic. However it is always wise to clean up any eyebrow hairs that are astray, acne, wrinkles etc to create a cleaner picture, after all social media is purely visual.
I love the apps:
to create unique looking photos.
Make sure you have a facebook business page and invite and share to everyone you possibly can. The more you get your name out there the better your outreach for new clients.
Instagram is a huge way to get your business noticed and aim to utilize all it offers. Link all your media pages together that way when you share on one it shows to the next.
Instagram is one of the quickest ways to gain new clientele. Some people like creating a catchy theme to entertain the visual clients.
CLASSIC SET $130 regular price once able to get say 90% coverage in roughly 2 hours.
In the meantime:
60 min fill $45 (touch up fill 1 hour)
90 min fill $70 (typical 3 week max if great retention fill)
120 min fill $90 (4 week fill)
These are tough prices. Guideline only. Price yourself to your needs and wants! But these are typical standard prices
Removals of your work should always be free . Coming from others I charge $30 per half hour from other techs if need be or if they are getting a new set I do free removals.
Also keep all receipts for products, training, supplies and decorations etc as you can claim all of this as a business expense for tax season as your accountant will put it under your typical taxes as a sole proprietorship and it will lower your tax bracket.
Get yourself out there! Be well noticed on all forms of social media.
Do giveaways but make them harder to attain. For example
Starting off your page you could make a post saying:
Like, share my page and tag 3 friends.
Once my page gets to 100 likes I will draw for free Set. Or free gift card. Free facial etc. Get creative. But make it at least 80 to 100 like increments as it’s very easy to get say 20 likes.
Hashtags are very helpful.
WordSwag is great for making catchy photos for promos.
