Have you ever applied a pristine set of eyelash extensions (we are talking crème de la crème) only to find your client walking into their next appointment with a set of spider legs attached to their eyelids? All that hard work making sure each eyelash extension has been precisely placed, secured to the base and separate from its fellow lash neighbours, ruined! What has your client done to cause such lash destruction?

Now you're checking the time and feeling stressed. You are feeling stressed as you check the time. You have appointments scheduled back-to-back for the rest of the day. You know that most of your time will be spent fixing this clumpy mess.

You know once you’re finished lashing, this client isn’t going to be happy as they won’t be as full as they wanted them. So much pressure, so little time, how to deal? Does this sound all too familiar?

Unfortunately, the reality is you only see your clients for 1-2 hours every 2-4 weeks. That leaves your clients in control of the fate of their lash line for up to 672 hours. So, with such limited time, how can you reduce the likelihood of the above scenario from happening to you? The answer is through coaching your clients and training them to be responsible for their new set of lashes. 

Think of yourself as a personal trainer. A personal trainer helps clients burn calories during sessions and suggests a healthy diet and home program to maintain weight loss. However, if clients choose to eat unhealthy foods and drink alcohol after training, they won't see results.

Same goes with lash extensions. You might give them beautiful lash extensions, but they may still put on lots of waterproof mascara right after. Teach clients about lash hygiene, aftercare, and how to maximize eyelash extension results.

It's important for your clients and salon to provide an eyelash extension cleanser (also known as lash shampoo) before they leave. Why? If people don't care for their lashes, they may lose extensions faster. They may also have clumpy lashes. Additionally, they risk infections in their follicles.

This in turn will make your job harder at lash refill appointments and clients will ultimately blame you for their lash misfortunes. Eekk! Remember, an eyelash extension cleanser is your insurance policy…make sure each of your clients’ signs up!
