Our Best Advice For How To Choose The Right Beauty Bed For You!
As a Lash Technician, owning a good lash bed is one of the most important items of furniture you will need for a successful lash business. So, one of the questions that you may have before you commit to such an investment is, ‘What is the best lash bed for a Lash Tech?’ Well, we’ve put together our best advice for how to choose the right beauty bed for you!
Keeping Your Clients Comfortable
When it comes to the comfort of your clients, investing in a good quality lash bed is essential. We want them to feel as comfortable as possible. So to ensure your client has ample room on the lash bed, we recommend getting a beauty bed with a width of 65 cm to 75 cm to accommodate the majority of your clients comfortably.
An accessory we believe adds a touch of luxury to your lash bed and also serves a practical purpose, is a lash bed cover. Not only are they nice to look at and accentuate the aesthetic of your lash room, but they alsomake it easier to sanitise your lash bed between clients.
Another asset you can add to your lash bed to make your client’s lash appointment more enjoyable, is a memory foam lash pillow. These ergonomically designed and ultra-comfortable lash pillows are the perfect way for you to provide support for your clients’ necks. The foam of the neck pillow will also help to keep your client’s head in the perfect lashing position.
Keeping You Comfortable
The first thing you need to consider when purchasing a lash bed is whether it’s the right height for you to lash comfortably. Having a lash bed that isn’t appropriate for you means that in the long run, if not sooner, you will likely develop neck pain and prolonged backache. Your own health and safety are just as important as that of your clients’!
Second, is if the lash bed has enough legroom underneath it. This is a must when ensuring your comfort as there is nothing worse than not being able to sit comfortably whilst lashing because of a lack of legroom. This is why a 4 leg lash bed is usually ideal as your legs can sit under the bed with ease.
The final thing when choosing your lash bed, is to measure the amount of space you have available in your lash room. Lash beds are the perfect option for you if you have a limited amount of space available to you to perform your treatments in. A beauty bed doesn’t take up as much space as a reclining chair does. If you’re a Lash Tech who works from your home, or you’re mobile, then we would definitely recommend you invest in a lash bed.
Extra Tips and Tricks for Buying a Lash Bed
Try before you buy: Avoid purchasing your beauty bed online unless you have seen and tried it out previously in person. As you would with other big furniture purchases such as a new sofa or mattress, you also need to try it out to assess how comfortable it will be for your clients.
Price: You should take the time to shop around before purchasing your new lash bed, so you can make comparisons and ensure you’re getting a good quality lash bed for the best price. Don’t just jump at the first one you see as you may end up spending a lot more money than you need to.
Reputable Retailers: Make sure when you buy your lash bed, that you purchase it from a reputable retailer! The last thing you need is to have invested your hard-earned money into a bed that you thought was everything you wanted, only for it to turn out not fit for use. Most reputable retailers will offer a guarantee or a warranty on your beauty bed. You’ll want to make sure you’re covered if anything happens to your lash bed.
Delivery & Installation: Check if the retailer you are buying your lash bed from offers a delivery and installation service. This is important if you’re unable to transport the beauty bed yourself, or if it is too heavy for you to lift and you need some extra help.
We know that creating a comfortable environment for your clients may seem like a bit of a costly investment in the beginning. But we promise that in the grand scheme of things, it’s a smart business investment worth making because providing a comfortable and high-quality treatment will keep your clients coming back!
