Eyelash extensions have been the most requested treatment in the beauty industry for the past few years, and they continue to grow in popularity. There are however a few of you that are still skeptical or nervous about getting them. Let me tell you, it is not scary at all! In fact, it is surprisingly relaxing and enjoyable. Most clients take a nap during their treatment.
I understand the concern about finding a lash artist whom you feel you can trust, so I am going to help you by telling you exactly what to look for so you know that your precious peepers are in good hands!
Here are 5 signs that your lash artist is a great choice!
Your lash artist proudly displays their certificate for all to see.
An accredited education is not cheap, and it is not easy. A well-trained lash artist has earned the right to brag about their qualification and should hang their certificate and seal of accreditation where clients can see it. Go ahead and ask them about their training; they would love to tell you about the countless hours they have dedicated to practicing and perfecting their skills.
Your lash artist will not hesitate to tell you which product line they use.
A quality lash artist cares about what they use on their clients' lashes. They have done their homework and tested many brands. They chose a supplier that they believe in and will tell you all about them because they know you will be impressed.
They are a proud member of NALA (National Association of Lash Artists).
Members of NALA are bound to strict Professional Guidelines, the NALA Code of Ethics and the NALA Decontamination Guide. If your lash artist is an accredited member, you can have peace of mind knowing that they are committed to the highest possible standards in their lash practice. You will find a directory of NALA Members on our global directory: www.nalamembers.com
Before and after photos.
Your lash artist is so good at what they do, that their work is displayed on their website and social media platforms. A before and after photo speaks volumes for what kind of results an artist is capable of creating.
Positive reviews online.
Social proof is a great way to validate someone's professional integrity. Search for online reviews to see what others have to say. Please remember, no one can please all of the people, all of the time! Always read negative comments with an open mind. A bad review doesn't necessarily mean that the lash artist is bad, just be sure there are also plenty of satisfied clients that would recommend them.
When you have a quality lash artist in your life, lash extensions have the ability to make a positive impact on your appearance, your daily routine, and your lifestyle. With the right lash artist, you will be ecstatic about your new luscious lashes!!
