Eyelash Service Etiquette ??? Yes, this is a thing!!!
Getting your lashes done is a pampering that many women feel is a luxury and a necessity… that is the argument.
As with any service, there is proper eyelash service etiquette when it comes to tipping, scheduling and working with your lash artist.
Below outlines how you can maintain a great relationship with your lash artist so you can keep your lashes looking amazing.
Don’t come sick
Please don’t do this! Because your lash artist is so close to your face throughout the lashing service, avoid coming in with an illness. If you cancel and reschedule in time, your lash artist will understand, we are all human after all. If it’s imperative to get your lashes done, please wear a medical or surgical mask to stop help eliminate germs from spreading.
This is super crucial as it not only ensures that you smell like daisies while up close and personal with your lash artist, it also shows you can follow the after-care instructions. Any lash fanatic knows how critical it is not to get your lashes wet after application whether that be lash extensions or a lash lift.
Limit talk time
Once you arrive to your appointment, there is usually a few minutes during the set-up process where you and your lash artists can catch up on life, or the most recent episode of desperate housewives. Once you are prepped and ready for your service, stop talking! This is because when you talk, your eyelids typically flutter making lash services harder and longer to apply.
Limit phone time
It is tempting to take your calls on speaker phone or having your lash artist text for you while getting your lash artist, put your phone away and on silent so you and your lash artist is not distracted from you getting the incredible lashes you’re paying for. Your lash artist has a limited amount of time to perform the service, and you are paying for a service during that time so I’m sure you don’t want that used time used up answering and texting while you’re there.
Much like a restaurant, lash artists work in the service industry therefore it is customary to tip those that serve you. A typical, across the industry tip is between 15-20 percent. Keep in mind your tip amount can change based on the experience you had. If you had a magnificent experience and are beyond amazed with your lashes, let your lash artist know and show your appreciation with a more generous tip.
Cash is Best!
It’s always best to tip in cash, especially if you’re getting your service done at a salon. This ensures that your lash artist will directly receive their whole tip, and nothing can be taken away from salon fees.
Your lash artists won’t be able to achieve your dream lashes unless you tell them what you desire! Tell them if you prefer long, short, full or natural lashes but make sure to listen to their opinion as well. They are the experts and will know if a desired look is damaging to your natural lashes, if it’s possible to achieve and which service would be most applicable to your desired look.
We all have busy lives, I get it! If your life gets too busy and you can’t make it to your lash appointment, please let your lash artist know ahead of time so they can either fill the appointment or plan accordingly. If you cancel at the last minute, it is standard to still tip your lash artist as you are still taking their time.
It is always best to schedule your fills in person, at the end of each appointment. This gives your lash artist the confidence that you’ll be a return a client and almost guarantees that you’ll get an appointment at a time that works for you. Never text your lash artist last minute and expect to get squeezed in, chances are it won’t happen, and you’ll be disappointed.
