    I have elleebana & Lashus. Elleebana is quick - but strong - so be careful with your timing..... LASHUS is definitely my preferred when dealing with more fragile lashes as its strength diminishes, so the chances of over developing are removed I have also used Ellisons ‘Mylash’ and had great...

    Lash lift vs eyelash perming

    Both are ‘perming’! The end result differs depending on the medium used to wrap the lash around. Curling the lashes is the old way - lifting the new! Nowadays a ‘shield’ is used to wrap the lashes around, and the perm lotion is placed at the root to create a bend at the base, enabling the...

    The problem we all have in this industry is saturation. Folk wanting ‘cheap as chips’ Minimum wage..... yes I said it! Back in the day our wages were sh*t - but our commission / our ‘incentive’ was HIGH! We worked our arses off to please the client to keep them coming back to us - to ‘our salon’...

    25% for renting a room is mental! What if your takings are low..... The salon owner- imo- should set a daily room rent.... If you decide not to work - they get nothing!

    Self employed staff member caught complaining about owner

    I cannot see the benefit of self employment within a salon. As has been said many times before - you are just their landlord - the rent collector!
