Should Beginner Lash Techs Bulk Buy Their Lashes? | When is it Safe to Bulk Buy?
We know how exciting it can be to start your own lash business. There are so many decisions you’ll need to make, from the name of your business, to where you’ll be working from. However, one decision that can be a bit tricky and may even feel a little overwhelming when you’re first starting out, is whether you should stock up on your lashes. This is one of the most important decisions you’ll make since those lashes will kickstart your business! Our best advice for all beginner lash techs when starting their lash career is to bulk buy your lashes!
What is Bulk Buying?
Buying in bulk is the process of purchasing large quantities of a particular product or products, typically at a discounted price.
Bulk Buying to Stock Up Your Lash Stash
Ordering your lashes in bulk is a great way for you to save time and money. When you buy in bulk, rather than having to waste time repeatedly scheduling multiple small orders per month, you’ll save yourself some hassle by only having to make a few repeat orders.
Buying your lashes in bulk is also the perfect way for you to stay prepared! Keeping a schedule and taking inventory of your lashes every 4-6 weeks will help you stay on top of keeping your most used lashes in stock at all times. If you stay ready, then you won’t need to get ready when your client comes in requesting the newest lash trend!
You Can Mix & Match!
When you buy in bulk, there’s no rule that says you can only order multiples of the same type of lash. Buying your lashes in bulk is an excellent chance for you to experiment with multiple lengths, thickness, colours, and types of fibre. This is your opportunity to explore not only the types of lash extensions that you love to work with the most, but allows you the freedom to be able to create any of the various gorgeous lash styles that are out there!
If you want to see some examples of maps for some of the most popular lash styles out there, check out this blog post. Or maybe you’re feeling more adventurous and have decided you’d like to create your own lash maps and design bespoke lash combinations for each of your clients. Either way, bulk buying your lashes is an absolute must!
Buy in Bulk to Improve Sustainability
When placing one larger order, you’ll not only be saving on shipping fees and product costs, but you’ll be cutting down on the packaging used. Decreasing the amount of packaging helps to reduce your carbon footprint, and means less of it will end up in landfills.
Buying in bulk also helps minimise transport pollution, with fewer trips and trucks being packed more efficiently with bigger packages. More efficient transportation will also help to reduce CO2 emissions. Bulk buying your lashes is an easy and eco-friendly way for you to help save the planet.
Bulk Buying Saves You Money!
We know when you’re first starting out, trying to save money in any way you can is important. Rather than choosing cheap lash extensions supplies and hoping for the best, it’s better to know that what you’re buying is high quality and will guarantee that your clients will have the best possible experience with you.
Purchasing your lashes in bulk means you’ll still be getting the same amazing quality lashes, but with an even better price!Since you'll be placing fewer larger orders, you are more likely to meet the threshold for free shipping – it's not a lot, but it adds up!
