Today is a special day – it's Employee Appreciation Day! Whether you're running your own salon with a team of talented Lash Techs, or you're a self-employed Lash Technician hustling solo, it's essential to take a moment to recognise the hard work and dedication you and your team put in day after day. As a Lash Technician, you’ll understand the importance of teamwork, dedication, and passion in this industry. This is why Employee Appreciation Day is the perfect opportunity to show gratitude to your employees or yourself for the incredible work you do in the lash industry. So, here are some creative and heartfelt ways you can celebrate this day!


For Beauty Salon Owners


Gifts or Gift Cards: Surprise your employees with thoughtful gifts or gift cards to their favourite stores to show you know and appreciate them. It could be anything, so get creative and tailor the gifts to their interests!


Personalised Thank You Notes: Take the time to sit down and write meaningful, personalised thank-you notes for each member of your team. Highlight their unique strengths and contributions to the salon, and express your gratitude for their hard work and dedication. A personal touch goes a long way in showing appreciation.

Spa Day or Wellness Activities: Treat your team to a spa day or organise wellness activities like yoga or meditation sessions. Encourage relaxation and self-care to show that you value their well-being beyond work responsibilities.


Team Lunch or Dinner: Surprise your team with a sweet treat, or why not treat them to a special team lunch or dinner at their favourite restaurant? Sharing a meal together is a simple yet thoughtful way to bond outside of the salon and show appreciation for their efforts.

Flexible Scheduling or Time Off: Maybe consider giving your employees a bonus day off or allowing them to leave work early. It shows that you value their well-being and provides them with the chance to recharge and spend quality time with their loved ones, promoting a healthy work-life balance.


Professional Development Opportunities: Invest in your team's growth by offering opportunities for further training or education. Whether it's an eyelash extension course for an advanced lash technique like Russian Volume Lashes or a business management workshop, supporting their professional development shows that you're invested in their success.

Celebrate Milestones: Reflect on your achievements and celebrate milestones in your business journey, no matter how big or small. Whether it's reaching a certain number of clients, mastering a challenging new lash technique, or hitting a financial goal, acknowledge your hard work, dedication, and perseverance. Always celebrate your success with pride!


Self-Care Day: Take a well-deserved break from your busy schedule and indulge in a self-care day. Whether it's a relaxing spa day, a long bath, or simply lounging around in your comfiest pyjamas with a good book, prioritise your own well-being on this special day.
