I try to give you guys as much information on this blog to make your journey easier and more efficient than mine was when I was starting out.

So, when you are a beginner lash artist you need to invest in some supplies and some larger items. Some items you can definitely save, but a lash bed or recliner is not one of them.

Here’s my personal review on both a lash bed and a recliner. I would like to give you as much information so that you would feel comfortable investing your hard earned money in whatever route you choose.

 

HERE'S MY REVIEW ON A LASH BED AND I DON'T HAVE THE BRAND FOR REFERENCING:

  • Client comfort, you might get a lash bed that’s extremely not comfortable for the client, and they will end up complaining after 1 – 1.5 hours. It’s not going to be ideal for the client.
  • Lash artist comfort, this is the most important in my opinion, why is that?
  • Well, because you will be spending 5 – 8 hours working if you are not comfortable, you will rush through your lash sets and develop backaches as well as neck pain.

MY RECOMMENDATIONS IF EVER YOU DECIDE TO GET A LASH BED:

  • 65 cm minimum in width for your client’s comfort, ideally 70 cm for bigger clients, and for a lash artist to have space for her material.
  • Make sure it has a simple bottom part, no extra sticks where the legs are, they will bother you when you are trying to move and work.
  • This is extremely important since a lot of these beds are intended for massage therapists that work standing up. For a lash artist, it is very important to have enough space for the legs.
  • There are various finishing's. Ideally it is preferable to buy a bed that is easy to clean and disinfect.
  • Keep in mind most of these are made for massage therapists, therefore, not exactly keeping in mind lash artists’ comfort. So you have to be proactive and pick a good one.
  • Be sure you cover it is a good material that can be cleaned and disinfected, a plastic vinyl cover works very well for this purpose.
  • The advantage of a lash bed is that it doesn’t take up as much space as a recliner, it can easily be used for other services such as massages, facials, and waxing as well.
  • Another aspect to keep in mind is that there is space on the side for lash tiles and a lash pillow if needed.
  • It’s affordable, customizable, and reliable.

DISADVANTAGES OF LASH BED

  • One of the disadvantages is that the height of the table can not be adjusted, and this can result in backaches for the lash artist, unfortunately.
  • The other disadvantage is that the bed can sometimes be unstable, it can also be incredibly uncomfortable especially for bigger and heavier clients.
  • It might not be the most comfortable bed for clients to be lying on for 3 hours straight.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A LASH BED?

When it comes to purchasing one, there are several factors to consider.

1. HOW HIGH OR HOW LOW DOES IT GO?

Don't just consider your size. Consider the client's size as well. Do you think a client standing 4'5 would have trouble getting into your bed? You must strike a balance between a comfortable height for your client and a comfortable height for yourself.

 

2. WHAT AM I USING IT FOR?

The versatility of these beds is surprising, which is why they are one of the most useful pieces of equipment for lash extensions.

 

3. CAN IT BE CLEANED EASILY?

Make sure you buy a lash bed that you can use the proper sanitation products on! You can get a vinyl cover for a cheap price to protect your original tablecloth from wearing out and tear from cleaning and use.

 

4. IS IT POSSIBLE TO REPLACE PARTS QUICKLY?

Things break and it’s good to be able to purchase replacement parts for your lash bed.

 

5. HOW IS THE SHIPPING?

Have you ever purchased something on the website and had to pay a high amount of shipping fee?

One of the reasons I purchase so much from Amazon is that the delivery is usually really upfront and the majority of items are returnable. Also, some companies won’t ship to PO boxes. You might also be required to pick up the item at a drop point if the item is large enough.

 

6. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST AND WHAT IS YOUR BUDGET?

Keep in mind that depending on where you live, this could be a tax write-off! (save the detailed receipts) And always check the warranty.

 

7. ARE YOUR CLIENTS COMFORTABLE WITH IT?

You need to make sure that your clients are comfortable with your lash beds. Sometimes buying lash pillows can be a quick fix.

LET'S TALK ABOUT RECLINING LASH CHAIR

Take a nap and wake up beautiful! Recliner lash chair can provide your client full support and comfort while getting their eyelash extensions done. 

This will especially aid in their overall experience as the more comfortable they are with you and during their session, the more inclined they are to be a returning client. 

Before purchasing an eyelash chair, make sure to check how far it reclines back, since you'll want one that will allow you to lash comfortably from your own stool or chair.

DISADVANTAGES OF RECLINING CHAIR

Keep in mind that there are some disadvantages in using a recliner chair.

First of all, lets consider price, recliners have a tendency to be much more expensive then massage beds. They can typically range anywhere between 200$-2000$.

Therefore it’s a onerous investment to consider wisely before taking the leap.

Another disadvantage to consider is the lack of space for the lash artist, there is typically much less space around the client’s head to put your supplies, such as lash tiles, lash pillow, and organizer.

Whatever you decide to purchase, consider your budget, your lash area, and most importantly comfort that it will provide for the lash artist and the client.

WHEN IT COMES TO BUYING NEW EYELASH CHAIR OR RECLINER CHAIR THERE ARE THINGS TO CONSIDER. NOT LEAST THE FOLLOWING:

  • Try Before You Buy – Given I have mentioned comfort a few times, It’s important to try a recliner before you buy it. Most online retailers offer a money-back guarantee.
  • Price – There is a huge variation in prices when it comes to recliner chairs. But, there is also a huge variation in what each chair can do and how it does it. Of course, I want you all to get the best price, but I’d also say, you get what you pay for. My advice would be to buy the best recliner you can afford.
  • After Sales Service – If you buy a recliner from a reputable retailer they’ll offer a warranty or guarantee for your peace of mind.
  • Size and Weight – It’s worth mentioning when you buy a recliner that some of them are not only big in size but also heavy. Make sure you have the space to accommodate it and help should you need to move it.
