    Not very busy!

    Sooo quiet at the moment, everyone is tightening their belt and in my area it seems everyone has done a lash course over lockdown. They are offering them for ridiculous prices and to be honest some of them look pretty good. I know the old adage that they won’t last or they’ll be stuck together...

    Should I contact the salon who’s work I corrected?

    I had a similar situation last year, corrected a local salons work. They weren’t horrendous but they weren’t what she paid for, they were all falling out. A friend of mine does holistic therapies in that salon so I contacted her and told her to tell her lash tech that her glue must’ve gone off...

    Diabetic, eyelash extensions?

    I do lashes and have never had a problem doing lashes on people with diabetes. I think you just need to let your technician know in case you fall into a diabetic coma whilst you’re on the couch [emoji848]

    Lash extensions lost their curl

    Hi peeps, I fitted a client with 0.07mm 3D C curl lashes on Wednesday and she has come back today with completely straight lashes, there is no curl to them at all. All still glued on but poker straight. Can anyone advise why this has happened? I've contacted the distributor to see if they can...

    Lash glue alergic reactions!

    Ensure they have a break from lashes for a couple of weeks to let their eyes settle down. I've had this happen a couple of times now and once they've had a break I've done them a new set using a sensitive glue and they've been ok. I have used Flirties sensitive glue in the past but now use the...

    Overselling yourself on Facebook

    Just remember that not everyone sees every single one of your Facebook posts, it's better to post more rather than less - you need to get yourself out there. Try to post something different each time and make posts really positive like how much you enjoy seeing customers leave with a smile etc x

    Shrinking Violet Body Wraps

    Because it is quite a big detox so it is advised that they should not drink too much caffeine or alcohol and drink plenty of water to continue to flush out the toxins. Ladies have to wait three months after birth as their body is still recovering and repairing itself so to do a massive detox...

    Shrinking Violet Body Wraps

    I did the course earlier this year and have done about 10 wraps in total perhaps a few more. I really struggled with it but I think this was more down to the clientele I currently have, most of my ladies wanted it before a night out or I had ladies who had just given birth wanting it so it...

    Chemical reaction? Please read and discuss

    My friend mentioned to me recently that when using Sally's own brand bleach it went red hot, I think she used their own brand peroxide with it.

    I feel exactly the same as you :-( this is my first week off in three years, I have worked all day today, will be working most of Friday and am also working Saturday and Sunday!

    Breast enlargement

    I had mine done and it made me realise I must have body dysmorphia. I went from a 32C to a 32E and can honestly say I couldn't tell the difference at all, I still feel the need to wear padded bras and although I feel less inadequate now I still don't feel they are big enough. Luckily I realise...
