I did this client today, and it did make a subtle difference. i did explain to her that it won’t look like the pictures she’s seen online as her lashes are very short. It did work, however I think extensions would work better x
Which lash lifting products do you find work better, Lashbase or Lash Bomb? I'm currently using Salon Systems and I'm thinking about switching brands, I've heard really good reviews about Lash Bomb, but it's a bit pricier than Lashbase and Salon Systems! Is it worth it?
I'm also just starting out, I get most of my clients through word of mouth and social media. I would also recommend advertising on facebook marketplace – but I'd suggest doing it at a discounted rate whilst you build up your client base/portfolio.
Okay thank you! And how far in advance is wise for patch testing? Does it have to be exactly 48 hours before (if my insurance says so) or can it be a few weeks prior to treatment? I'm new to this and want to make sure I'm doing things correctly. x
I'm just curious to how everyone else does their patch testing? I dot each product on the clients inner arm, and some people tend to mix up all their products in one dish and dot that on the arm... I just feel a bit reluctant to do that, as I won't know which products they've reacted badly to...
Yes, I use the small shields and I leave it on for the longest time possible – I think maybe it will take me a bit more practice, and I think it also depends on the type of lashes! A lot of maturer ladies don't lift as well, but the younger clients I've had seem to lift right up. Very strange...
I'm trained with Salon Systems for lash lift, however, I've noticed that sometimes the lift isn't as dramatic as I would like on my clients, it often looks like a small and subtle curl, even when using the small curling shields and making sure to place the lifting lotion to the root.
