How To Pick A Lash Technician . . .


For everyone who is looking for an instant eye makeover, choosing the right lash technician can be quite a challenge. No matter if you are stepping into the false eyelash territory for the first time, or have recently moved to a new place and frantically searching for a new artist, one thing is certain. Your new lash artist should absolutely tick all your quality boxes. 


After a brief pause during the pandemic, the eyelash market is once again booming. In fact, it’s is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2021 to 2028. With that many technicians out there ready to add volume to your eyes, why settle for someone less than perfect? 


Here are some insider tips on how to choose a lash technician for you!


Always check the lash technician's work on social media


Chances are that you spotted a few great candidates while browsing on your social media of choice. Trusted eyelash technicians upload images of their work regularly. If you are proud of your work, why not share it with the world, right? Whether it’s Instagram, Facebook, or even TikTok, take a moment to evaluate their client photos. 


Do you see something you covet for yourself? Is there a particular style that spoke to you? While you are looking for the best lash technician, don’t forget to tap on the “tagged” section. A trusted artist will definitely have clients tagging them on posts pretty regularly. This automatically means that the work on their profiles is really their own. Unfortunately, some technicians still claim other people’s work *sigh*.


 Look for a price list on their website or social media


One of the most important things you have to consider before choosing the right lash technician is, you guessed it, the price. Different artists have different prices. There are many contributing factors. Most charge based on the quality of the products they are using and their experience.


Lash technicians who work at salons tend to be more expensive than those who are working from home - that doesn't mean that you’ll be getting low-quality work if you choose at-home beautypreneurs. To put it simply, salon technicians have to consider rent, utilities, wages, and much more, while at-home artists can be more lenient with their prices.


You should also take into consideration the exact type of lash service. Classic and hybrid styles, for example, are more affordable than Russian volume. This is simply based on the materials, level of difficulty, and the hourly rate of the artist.


Lastly, make sure to check the price of infills.


Check the lash technician’s reviews


Nowadays, you can find much-needed information online for pretty much everything - including your future eyelash services. Make sure to check for unbiased reviews. This will give you a great idea of other people’s experiences to determine if a lash technician is really for you. Fb page reviews and Google reviews are a great place to start.

Is the place clean and professional? 


 Sure, you can’t understand everything by looking at social media photos, however, they will give you an idea of what the artist’s place of work looks like. If all of their photos show that the background is clean, organised, and in tip-top shape, that’s a great sign. After all, beauty treatments should be a relaxing and positive experience. We all want our treatment rooms to be aesthetically pleasing, clean, and tidy, aren’t we?


Does the artist offer consultation?


Lash aficionados know exactly what they want and need. However, if you are a first-timer, chances are that you might have some questions regarding the overall treatment and care. 

When choosing the right lash technician for you, make sure that she/he offers complimentary consultations for clients with concerns. 


It’s the artist’s responsibility to educate you on the different options, techniques as well as offer expert advice based on your natural lashes. Also, when you are brand new to the eyelash treatment game, you might want to have a patch test first just to make sure that you don’t have any adhesive allergies.


Is the lash technician up to date with the latest styles and trends?


Truly passionate and driven lash artists never miss a chance to tap into new techniques, follow the latest trends and keep updating their skills. If the artist is stuck in the old ways, then you might have to second guess your decision. It’s important to understand what type of lashes work best for the shape and orientation of your eyes. That means that you also need to have an array of options.


From Russian Volume, Classics, Textured, Express, and Hybrid to Eyelash curls, and even 2022’s trendiest style, the “salt and pepper” lash extensions, a skilled lash tech should be familiar with everything.
