We will give you many tips on this blog on how to scale your business as a lash artist and hopefully this will  help you get through this pandemic in running your lash business successfully. 


1. Upscale Your Skills

When your beginning your lash journey, you are offering the very basic lash set which is classic lashes. This truly is a great start, but in order to make more money as a lash artist it’s important to upgrade your lash skills as soon as you feel ready to do so.

I know this might be an additional expenses but I assure you that take this as an investment on your part. You will truly be able to stand out from your competition.

When you already mastered a basic classic lash set then it’s about time to learn new skill set, hybrid, volume, mega volume, and wispy lash set.

Remember, clients love variety, and they are willing to pay more for a lash artist who is able to offer them a variety of lash sets. It’s like going to restaurant, you would rather go to a restaurant that has a variety of food options, then going to a restaurant that only has a few options on the menu. The same goes with lash extensions, a client will  prefer to commit to a lash artist that can offer different lash set. Clients do not like to change their beauty professionals, they like to go to the same one, most of the time . Therefore, for your lash client to commit to you, it helps to have a variety of looks in your portfolio, because the client never knows when she may feel like trying mega volume, or colored lashes. 

Do this gradually, go to trainings one-step a time, it’s always good practice to put away at least 5% a year on trainings that you want to do as a beauty professional. Remember when you can offer more value, then you can already increase your pricing. You can search for local trainings in your area, online trainings are also really helpful, because they allow you to learn a skill in the comfort of your own home.

2. Upsell Your Other Lash Set

A client go to your salon asking for a classic, be proactive and maybe offering a hybrid or mega volume, or wispy lash set, tell them about the benefits and the beauty if can add on their over-all look

Some clients simply DO NOT know about the existence of other lash sets, and they would be perfectly excited and happy to upgrade to another set if they knew about it. Educate your clients and empower them, this is the best gift you can give them, and yourself.

Upselling would definitely be helpful for you to upgrade their lash set from classic to wispy which of course will be higher price and an obvious reason of having extra profit on your own.

In fact, you can also upsell your client on another service, you offer. For example, offer them a facial with the purchase of a lash set for 30 % OFF. This strategy works best if you offer a discount, with an expiry date, scarcity is really important here.

Use your charisma in sales talking to your clients, this is really important, your clients will not remember what you said to them,  but they will remember how you made them feel, therefore be sure to always make them feel amazing around you, so they will continue wanting to come see you for more services.

3. Selling Products 

My struggles looking for lash products are real and took years. I had to look for vendors that passed my standards as a lash artist. Products that I would be produce to recommend to my lash artists friends. 

I have wasted money, time, and efforts before I decided to create products that will be quality-tested by my team. This is a good avenue to make some additional income as a lash artist, but this avenue takes much more time, and finances then the other avenues. .

If you are not ready yet to start your own product line, that’s totally fine and because you need to have enough funds and the expenses can be quite high to start your own line .

You can start selling after care kits, lash foams and lash wands. This will be a good start that you can recommend to your clients. When recommending these products, educate them with the benefits of their after-care routine and that’s the time you will tell them which products to use and sell them their aftercare kits directly .
