Hi everybody, its Irene here. It has been a long time since I made an update to my website text content. I am sorry, I apologize. But I am back.
Please excuse my poor writing. I’m an eyelash extensions technician, not a professional writer. So I will try my very best to get important messages across.
But I do have so much to share with all of you. I mean those of you who have never tried eyelash extension before / Those of you who are contemplating to become an eyelash extension technician / Those of you who are current eyelash extension addicts / Or those of you who like anything to do with beauty in general.
There is just so much junk spin content on the internet about the myths and facts about eyelash extension or eyelash extension training on the internet. Plus so much content that tries to talk you into signing up to their eyelash extensions course.
I am going to be completely unbiased. I’m going to share with you my view as a real eyelash extension salon right here in Brisbane Australia, correct as at the 12th of January 2018.
So you are thinking about becoming an eyelash extension artist?
Should you become an eyelash extension technician? Or should you not?
Here is a quick assessment I’ve came up with to help you decide. For each question, score yourself from 0 to 10 :
If you have a 6 or higher for every question, then I would say you have a good shot at becoming an eyelash extension artist. You can read up a bit more on our lash training programs.
Next, let’s be clear about WHY you want to become an eyelash extension artist. Passion? Money? Job Satisfaction? How would you rank the order these 3? You need to be completely honest with yourself and ask the hard questions first. In my own experience, when I first started out I received a fair bit of compliments for my work which gave me job satisfaction. With the accumulation of job satisfaction and more job satisfaction, a deep passion for the art developed even further. So you don’t always know at the beginning if you love the art or not. It can be developed. But the only way to find out is to give it a try.
At i-Lashes, our passion for beautiful lashes comes first. Always has, always will.
Second most important of all is the excitement written all over customer’s face when she open her eyes and look into the mirror to see a brand new self. This also spells satisfaction. Lots of it.
Only third is money.
Your very good eyelash extension skills will give you a satisfactory lifestyle, yes. But if it’s the money that attracts you to the trade first, ironically you’re going to get there slower.
Let me put it plain and simple – If you worry more about perfecting your lashing skills first, you’ll be financially rewarded quicker. Decent income is a by-product of excellent eyelash extension skills, it comes with time naturally (12 months or less if you are doing this correctly). If your primary driver for entering the trade is about money, you will miss a number of trivial yet critical little details along the way. Some of which are actually counter intuitive. Here I highlight my observations :
So these little things set the top artists apart from the good artists. Let’s be honest here, would you rather your lashes be done by a GOOD artist? Or would you rather your lashes be done by the TOP artist?
