Happy Leo season, Lash Babe! Is it just us, or have the last couple of weeks felt even stranger than normal? With UK salons due to reopen on the 1st of August, it goes without saying that regardless of which horoscope you read below, big changes are coming! We thought now was a pretty good time to bring a bit of a light-hearted read to you - something to talk about with your clients and lash colleagues over a coffee (or prosecco - we have a lot to celebrate after all!)
Leo (23rd of July - 22nd of August)
Leo, you are not represented by a lion for nothing - you are strong, powerful and passionate. You are a natural leader and form strong, meaningful relationships! Going back to life before lockdown may not be as easy as we’re all hoping, especially with all the new rules you’ll have to put in place for your clients! Now is the time to harness that fearless nature and move forwards with courage - you’re a role model, an icon and A Boss! It’s time for a bold lip and getting down to business! You’ve got this!
Put a fun new element into your pretreatment routine with our fruity cleansers!
Virgo (23rd of August - 22nd of September)
Known for being analytical and organised, I’ll take a wild guess and say you’ve got everything ready for reopening! Bedding and tunics are clean and organised, PPE is stocked and ready to go. Lashes and glue are laid out on your trolley in order of most used and your tweezers have been polished to perfection!
Why stop there? Now would be a great time to maximise your organisational skills with our brand new organiser!
Libra (23rd of September - 22nd of October)
Libra, you love balance and harmony - few things make you happier than looking at a freshly finished lash set and marvelling at how stunningly even it is! From the inner corners, through to the sassy cat eye out clients covet - you have achieved perfect symmetry! Be careful to balance your time just as evenly as you balance your lash maps, Libra - not only between appointments, but between your work/life balance - it’s very easy to get sucked back into being available 24/7 and on the go as much as possible, but take the time for a relaxing treat for yourself!
As a Libra, you have a keen eye for detail, and for beautiful things! Take a little look at our Salon Design collection - now’s a great time to look into adding a few extra touches!
Scorpio (23rd October - 21st November)
Scorpio, you’re never one to leave a job unfinished. You see a task, a goal you want to achieve and you go for it, like no one else! As a Scorpio, you are intuitive - you know what your client wants by just looking at them! At the moment, your clients are quite one-track-minded, and just want the fantastic lashes they’re used to getting from you! Of course you want to give them the best - it’s just who you are! But you should factor in the fact you’ll need extra time between appointments to cleanse everything completely - consider ways to speed up your lash appointments. Not only will your client be even happier than usual, but you’ll save yourself lots of time and stress!
Take a look at our easy fanning lashes, especially - these little beauties spring open when you grab them, giving you an effortless wispy look which is super full and stunning!
Sagittarius (22nd November - 21st December)
You are always on the quest for knowledge, Sagittarius, and it’s never a bad time to learn or try something new! Be bold like the fire sign you are, and try something a little bit out of your comfort zone! I’m a huge advocate for colourful lashes, and given your easy-to-love personality, I’m sure you’ll have no trouble convincing your clients that colourful lashes really are what they NEED in their lives - whether it’s a totally blue set, or a little pop of pink, colourful lashes are never, ever a bad idea!
Check out the whole collection here. The ‘safest’ option is purple 😉
Capricorn (22nd December - 19th January)
Being a Capricorn, you know better than anyone that a can-do attitude leads to success. You always did and always will excel at whatever you put your mind to, even though you have known your fair share of struggles and growing pains! Maybe you’re going back into the lash world after lockdown having been slaying at lashes for years, or maybe this is a new venture for you - either way, as scary as it is, all of your hard work will pay off!
With that in mind, you’re well aware that sometimes starting from scratch is better than trying to slot new things in amongst the old and hoping for the best. Boy oh boy, do we have something fresh and cool for you! Not only does this removersmell insaaaanely great and look fantastic on your trolley, it does good things for our planet too! With so much plastic waste in the world already, we decided to make our new bottles out of glass! What could be better for an Earth sign?!
Aquarius (20th January - 18th February)
You’re a bit wild at heart, Aquarius - a bit of a rule breaker! Like your Sagittarius pals, now is a great time to start playing around with colourful lashes if you aren’t already! Have a look at some lash groups and forums for colourful lashes and fantasy lashes to satisfy both your love for rebellion, and your enjoyment of teamwork and community. Finally, give some serious thought to some kind of lash competition if you haven’t already - few things are as satisfying as getting amazing feedback from industry leaders for your talent and vision, and nothing reels potential clients in more than the line AWARD WINNING LASH ARTIST (that’s you, by the way)
Don’t be afraid to experiment - your clients might be scared to try colourful lashes, but your family members will have a harder time saying no ;) Check out the full range here.
Pisces (19th February - 20th March)
You are empathetic and compassionate, which is why your clients adore you! It’s also why you can sometimes be overwhelmed at the end of your lashing day - clients leave the salon with fresh lashes and their heads clear from all of their problems! (Did someone say complimentary lip mask?) Remember to stay grounded, especially now, and take time for yourself! Remember that you are represented by two fish swimming away from one another, and give yourself the same compassion and kindness that you extend to literally everyone!
Pisces are known for creativity, being ruled by the planet Neptune, so make sure you’re taking time to explore creative passions, whether that’s trying out some cool new lash styles, or adding a few new accessories to your lash space!
Aries (21st March - 19th April)
You are bold, and love to be number one! You also really value diving head first into everything and getting a job done quickly! Try our Easy Fanning lashes for lashes that can keep up with you - or, if you’re not quite ready for Russian Volume yet, give some thought to our flat lashes - they’re bold but light, giving your clients drama without damage! Why not throw in a few red lashes too? After all, Aries is ruled by the planet Mars...
Maybe you’re the boss of classic lashes and you’re ready to take the leap to the world of Russian Volume - say no more - sign up here while it’s still 50% off!
Taurus (20th April - 20th May)
Taurus may be represented by the bull, but boy, oh boy, do you love serenity! Whether that is luxurious furnishing, sweet gentle scents or relaxing music - you’re a calming influence. That being said, you truly know the value of hard work and you aren’t afraid to put in the hours to do an awesome job! You are ambition and resilient - you’ve had to be, especially in the past few months! As a Taurus, you’re fixed and focused, and you’re great at upholding the systems you’ve put in place for the betterment of yourself and others - you may find that some clients try to push your boundaries in the coming weeks with regards to your new policies, but you will win their trust with your trustworthiness and devotion!
To appease that love of luxury, why not opt for a gorgeous scented cleanser and primer - not only will this be perfect for you, but it will add an extra layer of amazing to your clients’ experience!
Gemini (21st of May - 20th of June)
Geminis are known for doing so much that they would need a clone of themselves to get everything done! You’re always caught in the middle of a vast array of hobbies, tasks and friendship groups. This certainly isn’t a bad thing, but make sure you give yourself time to breath, Gemini! You’re naturally great at creative projects, and you’re always down to try something new - could this be a good time to think about another course? Expanding your treatment list is rarely a bad thing!
As a Gemini, you love communication, be it a face to face chat, a Facebook forum or an Instagram exchange between friends! Now would be an excellent time to put that love of socialisation to good use - up your social media game and draw in new clients with your bubbly, creative nature! Check out our salon decoration section for some ideas or updating your workspace to reflect your creativity!
Cancer (21st June - 22nd July)
As a cancer, you value cosy homeliness, and the feeling of sanctuary - creating spaces like these for your clients are one of the reasons you attract loyalty. Represented by the crab, you move effortlessly between the sea and the shore, which is a fancy way of saying you’re good at nurturing the emotional and physical needs of yourself and those around you.
Now more than ever it is important to cultivate a space which is as safe as it is beautiful, so be sure to check out our guide to making your workplace safe, and have a look at our range of PPE, designed to keep you safe while your clients have their lash naps!
