First things first, keep your workplace organized. You surely don’t want to lose time searching for something as you can’t remember where you left it a couple of minutes ago.
Make sure you know the place for each tool, and each lash tool, in turn, is clean and ready to assist you with a new client entering the salon.
In order to ace the time management skills, try to have a conversation with a client before an appointment, to learn what they desire, and think about lash mapping in advance. Also, in order to save some time and speed up the lash extension process, ask your customers to come with clean lashes.
Practice makes it perfect
Surely, as a lash artist, you aim for a new experience and inner growth all the time. It’s a common desire to nail your job each day every day. Some say it takes 10,000 hours to reach perfection in something. But don’t be scared of such big numbers. With constant dedication and persistence, it won’t take long till you notice that you work faster and learn lots of new skills. You need lots of lash extensions practice, without a doubt. Better yet, nothing can compare to practicing on a real client. Watch educational videos, save content and try to perform new techniques on someone. With every new attendant, you’ll notice that you gain more and more confidence and find that you effortlessly perform things that seemed hard for you some time ago. You may consider using fast-drying adhesive to practice your lashing speed and gain lashing skills.
Invest in quality tools
Trusted eyelash tools of premium quality are essential to your professional growth. Firstly, you need to find a pair of tweezers that you’re comfortable working with. Secondly, suitable adhesive, eye pads for lash extensions, pre-treatment and aftercare products are key points for faster performance.
