Things to consider when finding your lash artist & when to find a new one:
•\tAre they a licensed Esthetician or Cosmetologist?
This is important because licensed practitioners are taught proper safety and sanitation through licensed programs.
•\tWhat lash company/brand of lashes do they use?
Yes, some brands are way better quality. (Psst, Lash Essential…) A great way to get a referral for an artist is to contact a lash supplier and they can give you the name of someone in your area.
•\tDo not skimp on price.
Lash artists that truly care keep up on up-to-date technique and products, and have spent thousands of dollars on education. They are worth every penny!
•\tWhen you go to your appointment, take notice of if they are clean.
It is probably not a good sign if there is dog hair all over where you are going to lie down for an hour.
•\tGetting lashes SHOULD NOT HURT!
I want to shout this from the mountaintops! Yes, the fumes can get strong and it may sting here or there. But if you feel like you are being tortured,RUN!
•\tWhen you leave your appointment, your lashes SHOULD NOT HURT!
No, you do not need to get used to that tight or poking pain after a lash fill. This could be happening for a variety of reasons. (i.e. Gluing the extension to the lid, poor isolation, putting too heavy of a lash on a natural lash that isn’t strong enough to support it, etc.) RUN!
