Isolation has to be one of the most deceiving and underrated skills in the industry. How many of you as new lash artists have watched YouTube videos or IGTV's, thinking I can totally do that! Then there you are sitting in your first course feeling like Edward Scissorhands and all of his awkwardness.
After spending time on lash forums I have seen many questions and comments from clients about experiences with swollen, itchy, red, dry, and watery eyes! While it is great to see that they are doing their own research, a key part of being a lash artist is educating your clients on potential post-appointment risks, including allergic reactions and irritations. This is why it is important to identify the key characteristics and differences between allergic reactions and irritations. Having the knowledge and confidence to professionally handle any issue that might arise, will make all the difference to your clients.
Every lash technician has the same goal - to provide the fullest lash extensions possible for each client. We all crave to provide that "wow" factor whether classic or volume lashing.
