What to Do When You’re New to Being a Lash Artist
If you are a professional lash artist, it’s very likely that you have a number of questions surrounding the industry. Becoming a lash artist and entering into the career path can be a rewarding struggle and everyone has to start somewhere. Learning from the mistakes of some of the other lash artists in the industry can help to make sure you can move through your journey as a lash artist more steadily.
Here are some top tips to guide your progress:
Use great quality products:
If you are going to be practicing on a mannequin or even working with a client for the first time, don’t be intimidated to get better quality lashes. As soon as you can start booking clients, make sure that you are using the best quality of materials and practicing often. The only way that you’ll become a better lash artist is by booking clients or finding willing volunteers like friends or family to practice on.
Find a mentor:
It’s very helpful if you can learn from someone that’s been in the industry for years. If you have a trainer that offers ongoing refresher courses this can be an investment that’s completely worthwhile. If you know someone else that’s in the industry offering lash classes, you can often sit in on their sessions and regularly practice with them if they offer that service.
Learn about the latest products:
One aspect of this industry is that you will never stop learning. There are always new products available for testing and there are always ways that you can improve your efficiency. Take on continuing education and do it so you can try out new products so that you can always have the best for your clients.
