I get asked all the time “How do you know someone is a great lash technician/artist” and that I am going to get the lashes that I want? Well there are a few main/important areas that you need to look for when looking for a great lash technician.
If you are new to the world of lashing or have had a bad experience in the past and you are looking for the perfect lash artist for you, you may be wondering where to start. Just like buying a car or finding the right hairdresser you need to make sure that you do your background and research. It is important that you are able to trust the person with your eyelashes and is professional, skilled and talented.
Here are the main and important areas that you need to look out for when finding a lash artist for you….
They will be happy to show off their work.
All good lash technicians/artists love to show off their work whether it’s a lash lift treatment or lash extensions. if their website, instagram and facbeook pages are filled with amazing photographs of work that they’ve done, you can be assured that they know what they are doing and they are confident in showing that off to others.
They ask you to come in for a patch test before your treatment.
If you have booked yourself in for a lash lift treatment or lash extensions, then a good lash artist will always as you to come in for a patch test beforehand. some techs will ask you to come in for a patch test before using certain adhesives, its all about safety for the client and so that the lash technician can give you the best treatment with the correct products to make sure that you have the best experience of lash treatments.
They Listen to your needs
A great lash artist will listen to you and help you choose the right look for you by asking questions and explaining your different options. Whether you want a dramatic look for a night out, a natural everyday look or you are a bride to be wanting a trial, a great lash technician will go out of their way to give you the eyelashes you’ve always wanted.
They wont be CHEAP
Now listen carefully at this point…. The cost of eyelash treatments will differ depending on your area and the particular salon, but beware of ultra low costs. A great lash technician will charge you an appropriate amount due to the high quality of their work and the time that it takes, if a price seems too good to be true, it probably is, and it’s not worth risking your eyelashes to save a few pounds. Make sure that you are asking questions with regards to how long they have been trained and which technique that they will be using. This will allow you o establish what they know about their lash products and the treatment itself. If they are a great lash artist then they will welcome all of the questions that you have.
They can show you their qualification.
All trained lash artists will have a certificate of achievement that they will be happy to show you if you ask. If they are unable to provide you with a certificate for their achievement, then I am afraid to say that they probably taught themselves from a youtube video… I know don’t get me started.
Always make sure that you are able to ask questions and that the lash artist you are talking to is happy to answer them. Lash artists love what we do and I for one am very proud of my achievements and clients, that is the type of person that you are looking for, someone that will treat your lashes as their own and give you the results that you want.
