Quality Education and Training:
The first step is a no-brainer, you’ll need to invest in comprehensive lash extensions training from a reputable academy. The best courses are not necessarily the most expensive but rather offer you a fundamental understanding of everything lash related.
Look for courses that cover the fundamentals of lash application, safety protocols, hygiene practices, and business management skills. Too many a times we’ve noticed that some students who are newly qualified don’t understand the basics of how humidity and temperature plays a vital role in lash glue. This is just that, these are basic knowledge that should have been taught as a fundamental before one should even be lashing. As trainers and educators, it is your job to equip your students with all the latest knowledge as the industry is ever evolving and information is forever changing.
Ongoing education and staying updated with the latest techniques and trends will help you offer high-quality services and stay ahead of the competition. As suppliers, we can safely say that new products using new materials are being released every few months, if you see something that’s new on the market and if it is affordable for you, try it out! If they don’t work for you then that’s fine, but if they do work for you and make your life easier, then you’ll be so glad you did and probably wish you would’ve tried them sooner.
The lash industry is ever evolving and new products and techniques are continuously being released and changed, it’s vital that you don’t fall behind by using techniques and products that’s released 10 years ago. Continuously educate yourself! There’s so much information online, a lot are free, some are paid but you’ll be doing yourself a disservice if you completely block out information from your peers in the same industry as you.
