London Lash Top Tip: Before you start your Black Friday shopping spree, set a budget and prioritise your needs. This will help you make the most of the Black Friday sales without going overboard!
Must-Haves and Essentials
Eyelash Extensions: Let's start with the basics. Stock up on your favourite lash extensions for Classic lashes and Volume lashes, and ensure you have a variety of lengths, curls, and thicknesses to cater to your clients' unique preferences. It's also the perfect time to explore new lash styles, and different coloured lash extensions to experiment with different looks.
Eyelash Extension Glue: A good lash glue is the backbone of your lash application. Ensure you have enough on hand to last you through your busiest months. If you’re finding that your eyelash glue isn’t drying quickly enough and is slowing down your treatments, now is the perfect time to try out a new lash glue that works better for you! Try a sample of a faster-drying eyelash glue to see how you get on with it before you invest in a full-size bottle.
Lash Tweezers: High-quality eyelash tweezers are a Lash Tech's best friend. Look for isolating lash tweezers that make the isolation of individual lashes a breeze, and a pair of lash tweezers with excellent precision to help you pick up eyelash extensions easily and make lash extension application effortless.
Lash Shampoo: Help your clients maintain their lash extensions by offering a reliable lash cleanser. Invest in lash cleansers that are specially formulated to keep extensions clean and healthy. Your clients will appreciate the extra care, and it can extend the life of their lashes. It's also a great add-on product that you can retail to your clients to boost your sales!
Lash Remover: Maybe one of your clients has decided that they want to completely change their lash look to a hot new lash trend they’ve seen, or sometimes clients aren’t fully satisfied with their lashes, and so some, if not all, of the lash extensions may need to be removed. Having a gentle but effective lash remover on hand to safely remove eyelash extensions is essential. Sometimes, even after you’ve conducted a patch test on your client that didn’t show any allergies or sensitivity to your lash products, that client can still have a reaction occur during or after their lash treatment and will need to have their lashes removed.
Lash Trays and Organisers: Keep your lash extensions organised and easily accessible with stylish storage solutions like our lash trays and organisers. They'll not only make your beauty room more efficient but also elevate its aesthetic. Staying organised will save you time and stress during lash appointments.
Under Eye Patches and Lash Tape: Comfort is key for your clients. Ensure your clients are comfortable during their appointments by stocking up on under-eye patches and lash tape for a smooth and irritation-free lash application experience. They're a must for any lash service and are essential for proper isolation and protection of the lower natural lashes.
