Are They Certified/Licensed?
While every state like NJ has different regulatory rules and standards, it’s extremely important to look into how qualified your lash artist is. The last thing you want is to be getting extensions applied by a non-licensed or certified artist. A licensed or certified lash technician is one that has completed full training and are insured by an accredited body. Heading to someone who isn’t trained could result in serious problems as a result of poor application, low hygiene and even using products such as glue that includes damaging and toxic chemicals in the lash adhesive. Sanitation is extremely important and all good eyelash techs take this seriously and sanitize their tools and work station in-between clients. They should also understand and inform you on how to properly care for your eyelash extensions after they have been applied and in-between visits.
Do They Offer Consultations
Before the Procedure?
We recommend if you are new to the world of eyelash extensions to take this opportunity to understand more about the procedure and voice any questions or concerns. A good eyelash salon/artist understands this, and will patiently take the time to educate the client, and offer extensions that are suitable for your natural lashes,
As a client you should always be aware of any potential risks with any cosmetic enhancement or procedure. It is particularly important with eyelash extensions that the lash artist give you a consent form at the time of booking. If you are aware of any allergies you have you must inform them before the procedure.
Is Their Work Out on Social Media?
Most eyelash techs will use social media platforms such as Instagram to showcase their work on their clients. It is always great when they post regularly and have a bunch of client photos. This can give you a good idea of how skilled the eyelash artist is, and what kind of styles they offer.
Have You Visited the Salon?
It is always a good idea to check out a salon prior to having any treatment done. So, what should you look out for? Check how clean the salon looks, and that tools are sterilized. You should also check that the technician washes or sanitizes their hands prior to the treatment. Usually, you will have a good idea when you step into a salon if it is somewhere you would like to get your treatments
A Google search is a great way to find reviews, and find out what other people’s experiences were like. If they have a website, you should also give that a look as you may find further information, pictures and prices.
Do You Know Your Budget?
Different salons and artists offer different prices. This is usually based on costs the lash technician incurs such as the area they are located, the costs of hiring a spot in a salon or even the cost of running the salon. It is also based on the costs of the products used as well as how experienced the technician is. You will notice that those with more experience tend to be more expensive than those who are freshly qualified.
