    No patch test for lash lift?

    Hi, I've had the same thing happen to me as well. People can sometimes get annoyed that I am asking for them to come for a patch test and will often say but I've had a lash lift before (at a different place). I also insist on another patch test if the last lift (with me) has been more than 6...

    New Kaeso products, boosters, oil & serum

    Thank you for your help, love the smell of the VIT C drops. Can feel a bit sticky compared to the luxe serum or oil but smells lovely.

    New Kaeso products, boosters, oil & serum

    I hope it's okay to ask for some advice please. I finally managed to get some of the VIT C drops! I usually use the Luxe facial serum in the morning followed by the hydrating moisturiser and the Elixir oil in the evening followed by the hydrating moisturiser. Should I carry on doing the same as...

    New Kaeso products, boosters, oil & serum

    Thank you for replying. I'm hoping to get them soon to try out, I can't find them at Alan Howard or Dennis Williams which are nearest me, so will have to have a look at other places. I love the smell of orange essential oils, reminds me of summer, so the Vit C one really appeals to me. Do you...

    New Kaeso products, boosters, oil & serum

    Has anyone used the new Kaeso sleep oil, anti-ageing serum, radiance booster or orange booster? Just wondered if you would recommend them and how the new oil and serum compare to the existing elixir oil and luxe serum. Thank you.

    First male client in home salon

    Hi, I work from home too and mainly do massage. On my brochure it says male clients are by referral only. I've had to turn down quite a few male clients and when I've explained why I've so far never had anyone complain or feel offended, people understand. My male clients are all...

    Lash lift fail, how to fix?

    Hi, if you move this to the 'skin' forum you will hopefully get some more replies. The lashes have been over processed, the lotions may have been left on far too long, not been completely removed and/or applied too far up the lashes. Also, they may have used an incorrect rod size which is too...

    Anyone used the new Elleebana lash lift adhesive squeeze tube?

    Hi, for those of you who switched from the Elleebana glue to Lash base glue, did you patch test all your clients again? I planned to patch test everyone again, but I have just checked the listed ingredients on the 2 boxes, and it is exactly the same. If anyone can give me some advice I would...

    Anyone used the new Elleebana lash lift adhesive squeeze tube?

    Wow - 30 minutes is amazing for a full treatment! Did you ever use the Elleebana glue? or have you always used Lash base? I'm wondering if there is much difference, there is certainly a difference in price! thanks.

    Anyone used the new Elleebana lash lift adhesive squeeze tube?

    Seriously impressed with 5 minutes! The quickest I have done it is in 10 minutes and that was because the glue was older & super tacky so the lashes pretty much stuck straight away.

    Anyone used the new Elleebana lash lift adhesive squeeze tube?

    Thanks for your reply and advice. I think I will give the new glue tube a try and either use multiple micro brushes or dispense it into another tray slot. When you dispense from the tube, I don't suppose you can give me a rough idea of how long the glue remains workable please? thank you.

    Am I too old to study beauty therapy?

    I re-trained at 41 starting with a Level 3 Diploma in Body Massage. I work from home and it was the best decision I ever made. I have a lot of clients similar to my age who say that they aren't comfortable walking into a busy salon or hairdressers where there are lots of young therapists. My...

    Anyone used the new Elleebana lash lift adhesive squeeze tube?

    Hi, has anyone else tried the new Elleebana glue squeeze tube? My glue is starting to oxidise so I am wondering if the tube might be better. I always seem to only get through about 2/3 or 1/2 of the glue before I have to throw it away. On the website it says to squeeze what you need into the...

    Advice for tinting fair lashes after Elleebana lift

    Hi, I did an Elleebana lift & tint on a client who is a red head with fair lashes. I left the tint (Belmacil) on for 5 minutes. When I removed the tint the result was a bit disappointing. On her next visit, should I increase the tint time and by how long? or should I apply more tint? or both...

    Home based/mobile - which payment methods do you accept?

    I've only been open for 2 years, I started off accepting cash only. Now I take the odd bank transfer and have quite a few who pay via Paypal. Clients like Paypal as once they have me set up it's just a few clicks. I've only ever had one new client who said she would pay me when she got home. I...

    Working from home moan

    Seriously, what is wrong with people!? I thought it was bad enough having clients turn up 30 minutes early ringing the doorbell when I'm still with another client! I just wouldn't answer the door or put up a sign. People can be so rude!
