    Check Your Inventory

    • Ensure you have a sufficient supply of lashes in various lengths, thicknesses, and curls to cater to your client’s desired look.
    • Make sure that your adhesive is not expired and is in good condition.


      Prepare Client Information

      • Review your client’s history, particularly any notes about allergies or sensitivities.
      • Have a consultation form ready for new clients to fill out, which should include questions about their health, lifestyle, and desired lash look.


        Set a Comfortable Environment

        • Ensure the room is at a comfortable temperature.
        • Play soft, relaxing music to help your client feel at ease.


          Be Ready to Educate

          • Be prepared to answer any questions your client may have about the process.

            FOR CLIENTS

            Clean Your Lashes
            • Arrive at your appointment with clean lashes, free of mascara or any other eye makeup.
            • Use an oil-free makeup remover to ensure all residues are removed.


            Avoid Caffeine

            Try to avoid caffeine before your appointment as it can make your eyes twitch, making the application process more difficult.


            Dress Comfortably

            You will be lying down for a significant amount of time, so wear something comfortable.


            Communicate Your Desired Look

            • Bring pictures to show your lash artist the style you are interested in.
            • Be clear about your expectations and any concerns you may have.


            Prepare for Aftercare

            • Make sure you understand the aftercare instructions before leaving the salon.
            • Purchase any recommended aftercare products.
