    Similar situation to teeth whitening. Im not getting into an argument about opinions on who should/shouldnt be doing it, but if legislation changes then that part of your business is wiped out. Thats a valid point/concern xx

    Jumping in from beauty not hair, but somethings been bugging me for a while & @Haircutz you might know the answer :) Can you hold insurance with 2 companies at the same time? So say half your treatments are covered by one insurer & the rest of your treatments covered by someone else? Xx

    Eyelash extension advice

    Some of them look too close to the skin of your eyelid so they are digging in (think like a splinter) so no wonder they are sore! I would have them removed. Although they will grow out & away from your eyelid I would want it done sooner rather than later. At the end of the day you need to...

    The best people to ask would be your state licensing board or the company you trained with/insurance company. We are in the UK so our regulations & laws will be totally different to yours xx

    SVS/express lash techs

    Hi Kayleigh, thanks so much for your advice :) At the moment Im so busy I struggle fitting in 90 minute classic lash appointments, & was swayed by the fact they say it takes 45 mins but if its going to take as long (and longer till Im well practiced) then its not going to be any good for me...

    Is this reasonable for an employee?

    Then carry them around? It sounds like your mind is already made up that you don’t want to provide them. Your question was wether it was a reasonable request. And as a business owner, my opinion is yes, it is a reasonable request. If you don’t want to do it then tell your boss that xx

    Is this reasonable for an employee?
