How to Become a Money-Making Lash Technician

Most eyelash artists are also small business owners, which means they set their own schedule and work hours. The initial goal is to reach 4 customers a day, 5 days a week. This will vary depending on the services you offer, such as full sets, refills, retail, and tips. Full sets are when extensions have not been applied to the natural eyelashes before the appointment.

Refills are when a customer returns in 2 or 3 weeks to have their eyelashes “filled”. Depending on your area and experience, you may charge more for fillers and complete sets. If you don't want to rely solely on spanking for income, you can look into other sources of income. You can also work for someone who knows how to market your services and get the word out about your business.

Word of mouth advertising is when your customers spread information about your eyelash services to other people. It's important to save money on your current job to help fund part, if not all, of your eyelash business. The eyelash extensions industry is about to become a billion dollar industry, so it's worth considering a career change. Training for eyelash extensions doesn't take a lot of time if you already have a cosmetology or beautician license.

The price of services will depend on the number of places that offer eyelash extension services in your area. The Lashpreneur Group Coaching Program is an affordable and comprehensive crash course on eyelash business ownership available. Social networks (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest) are great channels for promoting your services since eyelash extensions are a beautiful visual addition to a face. The typical salary of an eyelash technician will vary depending on the price you charge for each full and full set.

With the right knowledge and resources, you can become a money-making lash technician with a booming business.
