How to Choose a Lash Technician…to Fit Your Style
Any type of beauty service is going to be personal. You are trusting someone with your very appearance – your body! Not to mention our bodies, our appearances, OUR LOOK is something very sensitive to most people. Trusting that to another person, especially a stranger, can be particularly challenging. You have to wonder if they’ll “get” you. Will they get your style? Will they listen to your wants, needs and fears? Are they trained enough to successfully complete the work you want done? On top of trust and insecurity, you are also going to be spending quite a bit of time very regularly with this person. Do you like them? Do they like you? Will a long appointment of service and small talk with this person annoy you – or make you feel like you’re visiting with a close friend? In the end you will need to choose the person who best meets your personal needs.
Lash technicians are no exceptions to these rules. In fact, you may want to have even higher standards for a lash technician than any other type of beautician or trusted service person you employ. Lashes are tricky, and the quality of work can differ vastly from person to person. Lash technicians will be working with sharp tweezers, pokey hairs and chemicals around your eyes, so you will want to feel complete trust in them and comfortable in their care. Lash appointments are sometimes two hours long – that is a LOT of small talk. And depending on how frequently you get lash fills, you may be seeing your lash technician once or twice a month! A bad lash technician might not only be annoying or pricey, but they could also do serious damage to your natural lashes, so finding the right fit for you is supremely important.
How can you find the right lash technician? It might take a little time and effort, but the results will be well worth it.
It can seem pointless and even awkward trying to find the right lash technician to meet your needs. It may seem far too time-consuming when you can just book with the lady on your street or the top-reviewed online. Resist the urge to book the first lash technician you find. You’ll be spending a lot of time and a significant amount of money to get gorgeous, long-lasting lash extensions. It’s worth it to wait and find the right fit. Your future self, your lash technician, and your lashes will thank you!
