The evolution of easy fanning lashes by London Lash Pro

Easy fanning lashes - some stylists love them like we love a Piña Colada in the summer, others hate them like we all hate stickies - but what does the term ‘easy fanning’ actually mean, and is this the direction the lash industry is moving in for good?

The lash industry is always evolving, and this has been particularly evident in the last few years. We’re coming up with different styles, new techniques, and, in trying to meet the constantly developing requirements of the average lash tech, almost every lash company is working alongside manufacturers to introduce new, innovative types of lashes which supposedly speed up treatment times, make our lives easier and basically also help us earn more money, because - let’s be honest - a shorter treatment means: 1. You can charge more for the treatment - because you can give a fuller look in less time 2. You can easily squeeze 1-3 extra clients in each day

8 Lashes

So should we be so sceptical about these innovations, or should we give it a try and enjoy the fact that someone out there is taking their time to come up with ideas that will make our lives much easier. Now, we understand that there is a lot of controversy around easy fanning lashes, this is normal when big changes come, but really, this is a change we just can’t avoid, and sooner or later you will have to make a choice you either stay behind, or move forward and expand your business. Before you make up your mind about easy fanning lashes, let us talk a little bit about why we love them, and how to make them work for you. Easy fanning lashes are usually different length lashes placed on the strip in layers so

that once you close the tweezers on a bunch of them, they will pop open creating a fan. That is the theory, but easy fanning lashes are not magic lashes, so we would not recommend these for those not yet trained in Volume lashes, as you still need to know how many lashes is safe for any given lash. Easy fanning lashes are amazing, but damaging lashes is not! Easy fanning lashes, contrary to popular opinion, are also not for beginners. We still firmly believe that if you want to become a professional and successful lash artist, you need to feel the struggle of creating and applying handmade fans. You need to learn how to work with the glue, how to work with layers, lash diameters and all these little things you either weren’t told or forgot from your training but


it’s these little things that actually make you an excellent and professional eyelash technician. So before you start to reap the benefits of the industry boom, start with a foundation. I know this is not what most of you would like to hear but that’s the reality, and the reality is that nothing worth having comes easy. Next, let us explain to you how you can effectively work with easy fanning lashes. Sure, you can grab a bunch of them and just stick them randomly to the natural lashes - will they look nice? Doubtful. Like we said - they are not magic lashes. The sticky base makes it a little bit easier to fan, and prevents the fan from being lost when you lift it from the strip. Our Master artists still like to take control of the situation by placing them on the strip and fanning them into a desire “shape”. This way, you can also control how many lashes will be placed on the natural

lash, and make sure the base is not too thick - a very thick base can lead to more stickies, which we definitely don’t want! The choice of tweezers is also very important - we tested a few and found that the finer the tip, the easier they make it to work with easy fanning lashes, our top choice are LLP multifunctional tweezers. The small, sharp tip makes them super precise, and allows you to pick the number of lashes you want! Another common opinion about easy fanning lashes is that they don’t wrap around the NL. Well they don’t, that much is true, but neither do premade fans, or the T-base fans that are very often used by many experienced technicians and, if we’re being honest, we haven’t noticed any issues with retention. That being said, if you like your fans to wrap around the natural lash then you are most likely not going to be happy

with these lashes and that’s ok, after all, we all have our unique style. To summarise (in case you’re just skimming the article between clients): Q: Are easy fanning lashes as amazing as they’re said to be? A: We would say yes, definitely! They can reduce the time of treatment by as much as an hour! Q: Can everyone use them? A: No! You need to be a qualified and confident Russian Volume technician Q: Are they for you?? A: Well, you will have to try for yourself and make up your own mind! Personally for us, it was a case of love at first fan! Even so, it took even our best lash queens a little while and a bit of fiddling to find the best way for them to use them!

Do you have to lash all the lashes? Our views will vary but I think you need to treat all the lashes all the time. Here’s why.

That look may not be what your client wants If your client wants a natural look, treating all the lashes may not look natural and they may prefer it after some shedding. We don’t have the same number of lashes on each eye I experimented when creating my courses in 2012. I counted the lashes on 30 new clients who’d never had extensions so I could discount any trauma from previous wear. Interestingly, none had the same number of lashes on both eyes. They averaged around 10% more on one eye. I used to treat both eyes simultaneously but I’m quicker treating one at a time. As I prepare the lashes for treatment, I visually assess and guess the difference and treat the eye that has the fewest lashes first and balance the other so it’s not over treated. We don’t have the same number of

10 Lashes

treatable lashes on each eye Each day or week, the number of natural lashes in each of the 3 phases of growth differs as they grow independently. Each lash varies in length and thickness according to its phase at that time. I don’t treat the baby (anagen) lashes to avoid stressing the follicle, allowing them to mature first. I know that many stylists do and use shorter, finer and therefore lighter lashes. Ultimately, it’s not carrying something as full as an older lash next to it. One eye will have fewer ‘fully’ treatable adult lashes than the other. I wanted to explore the extent of the difference. I did another counting experiment over a winter season on 5 models who’d never had lash treatments. I repeated the count 2 months later. I chose winter to avoid the ‘seasonal shedding’ theory that started to emerge. Using two pairs of tweezers, I went from lash to lash calling out ‘baby’, ‘adult’ or ‘pensioner’ to a friend who took notes.

The results were really interesting. The number of adults (Catagen and Telogen) lashes varied by around 20% between both eyes on ALL five of them. One had: 105 adult lashes and 50 infants. A total of 155 lashes on their right eye. 135 adult lashes and 36 infants. A total of 171 lashes on their left eye. If you treat all the lashes or just the adults on both eyes, one eye will look fuller than the other. Your treatment sometimes looks fuller than other times because of the lash growth cycle. I saw why when I repeated the count after two months on all 5 models. The same model then had: 122 adult lashes and 34 infants. A total of 156 lashes on their right eye. 144 adults and 24 infants. A total of 168 lashes on their left eye.

Brow Lamination by Deboragh Hendren

The latest beauty trend that is taking the UK by storm!

What is Brow Lamination? The latest trend at the moment is brow lamination or brow perming. It has taken the UK by storm with hundreds of techs clambering to get trained in the treatment to be able to offer the service to their clients, but what exactly is it? Brow lamination is a beauty trend from Moscow. It makes the eyebrows look fuller, more symmetrical and gives the brows a well groomed look. It also helps to strengthen and nourish the brows and results can last up to 8 weeks. Brow lamination will ‘fix’ your brows into the shape you want! Who is the treatment for? If you have unruly brows, thick stubborn brows or you have brows that are not symmetrical then this is the treatment for you. Similarly, you have a gap in your brows or if you just want a more polished look to your brows then this is also the treatment for you.

12 Lashes

So how does it work? It works in a similar way to a lash lift as you are using similar products and the technique is similar although you are not using rods or shields. Brow lamination does not use the same ingredients as a regular lash lift though and so shouldn’t be attempted with your brand of lash lifting products. There have been cases where people have attempted to use their regular lash lifting products and have burnt the skin. The brow lamination products have different ingredients and are a different strength. It is important to use products especially designed for the job. Brow lamination uses a perming solution, a fixing solution, glue and a nourishing agent. A liquid silk composition can also be added and this is a proven solution based on keratin and liquid silicone, which coats the hair, creating a protective nutrient-rich film. The perming solution will soften and straighten the hair. The fixing solution fixes the hair for up to 8 weeks. A thin layer of glue is applied. You then brush the eyebrows into the shape you desire and then perm and fix them in to place. The brows can be tinted straight after but if you want to apply henna then you must leave at least 24 hours after treatment before doing so.

What look can you achieve? Some people want to go for that Cara Delevigne look with brows brushed upwards. Some just want a more natural look whilst others want a very highly defined brow. A lot of people have hairs that grow in different directions and with this treatment you can set the brows so they are all going in the direction you want which gives a neater look. Can anyone have the treatment? The procedure is safe but you can’t have the treatment if you have any cuts, abrasions, burns or scars near the eye. You also would not be a candidate if you have any infections of the eye. How much do I charge? Average price is about £35 How long does the treatment take? Treatment time on average is 30-45 mins Where can I buy products? Lash Factor are UK distributor and products and kits are available at www.lashfactor.co.uk Training will also be available soon so keep an eye out on our social media sites.

Featured Lash Artist - Carla Giannotti


by Ina Landolfo

“Good People will always support each other” There is nothing more important than to focus on your career. I love being a lash stylist. It’s my passion since the very beginning and getting better and improving my skills is a daily target.

W

hen I started being a lash stylist there were hardly any around. The prices for good training were quite high and the whole business was not developed at all. Clients needed to drive hours to find good lash stylists and it was very easy to grow a business. I am very thankful I started during this time because I had much time to improve myself and some years to take courses. Nowadays the expectations of clients are at the highest standard. You need to be one of the most famous and best stylists to get clients.

14 Lashes

During my career, I noticed there is quite a lot talking behind the back sometimes. I never understood why. Okay, it might be a female attitude to look left and right to decide which path to take but I decided to just look forward and I noticed one thing. Good people will always support each other. Really good stylists I mean worlds best stylists will not get in trouble with each other as they all have a lot of business to do. And they are impressed by great things developed by competitors or others as they notice its hard work. And hard work needs to

be respected. Good people don’t find any spare time to talk about others. They are not afraid to share knowledge and future trends as they know there are enough clients for everyone. No need to get in trouble. I am really looking forward tot the next decade of lashes. I am so impressed by all the great work I see when I am judging competitions. There are so many awesome stylists around worldwide. And one thing is for sure - “Good people will always support each other”

Six tips on problem natural lashes Sooner or later each lash artist is faced with the challenge of problem natural lashes. Let’s revise the following common cases of problem natural lashes.

1

Very dense and short natural lashes. First, we will apply eye lash extensions to the shortest natural lashes using the Classic technique. Then we apply volume fans of 0.04, 0.05 or 0.06mm thickness to the rest of the eye lashes. The bases of those fans should be really thin and twisted.

2

Growing down or deformed natural lashes When the natural eye lashes grow downwards, we will use the maximum curl possible. It works better when we apply the extensions at the bottom of the natural lash and pull each extension upwards after application. When the natural lash is deformed, we should not apply the extension parallel to its base, because we will get the wrong direction. We will respect the direction in accordance with the chosen design, and sometimes even attach the extension to the base, leaving a very tiny area of adhesion. Sometimes the extension will stay almost perpendicular to the natural lash.

16 Lashes

3

Sparse, weak, falling out natural lashes Sometimes natural lashes which are prone to falling out require special care and cleaning. Removing all the fat and grease from the eye lid, because it blocks the pores, weakens the natural lash and may result in early fall out. It may take some time before the natural lashes become stronger again. We will apply eye lash extensions at the distance of 0.5-1.00mm from the eye lid and never go over 2D volume. To make lashes fluffy and dense at the base, we will form the volume fans without twisting the base, with the bases of extensions strictly parallel to each other. We will use very thin extensions of 0.03, 0.04 or 0.05mm thick. When the natural lashes are sparse and weak, we will choose the strongest and healthiest lashes and apply the maximum volume on them, while we will apply just 2-3D volume on the rest of the weak lashes using very thin extensions.


4

Glazed and shiny natural lashes Some natural lashes are so nurtured and hydrated that they have a shiny, glazed appearance and they are kind of slippery when we try to apply lash extensions. They seem to reject the adhesive as if they were covered with an invisible wrap. This type of natural lashes is common for clients who take lots of vitamins or those on antibiotic treatment, or women who are breast-feeding, or even during menstruation. These are periods when the metabolism is accelerated. The particles of the eye lash cuticle are tightly closed, that prevents the adhesive from penetration into the pores and reduces the retention time. This is the case when you just can´t do without primer. The perfect method to ensure great retention is a “sandwich” technique. We apply individual eye lash extension at the bottom of the natural lash and immediately apply another one on top of the same natural lash. The natural lash will be locked inside between two extensions and will not be able to reject them. To achieve a fluffier effect, we can use the mixed method. We can apply the 0.10mm thickness individual extension on the bottom of the natural lash, and we will apply two 0.07mm (2D) extensions on top of the same natural lash. As a result, we will get a 3D fluffiness.

5

Watery eyes, blinking and non-close eye lids Almost all lash experts are faced with a “crying” client from time to time. Some clients cannot close their eyes completely; others cannot stop blinking. In all those cases there is a danger of a chemical burn as the fumes from the adhesive get in contact with the mucus membrane of the eye. If the client “cries” during the application of eye lash extensions, we will put a little cotton ball or some cellulose tissue near the corner of the eye to make sure we work with dry natural lashes. If the client is blinking or cannot close their eyes completely, we can try to fix the upper eye lid with tape or gel patch, or we can turn the head of the client to the side. The oldest method was to place a clean coin on the eye lid and fix it with the tape.

6

Consequences of a sty Very often one or several natural lashes stop growing back after the inflammation of the hair bulb – a sty. It depends on the intensity and the grade of the inflammation. Another reason for natural lash loss may be the chronic blepharitis (inflammation of the borders of the eye lids). In these cases, we must fill in the gaps, applying fans of maximum 5-7D volume with non-twisted straight bases. It will help to hide the defect and make it absolutely invisible. The good thing is that any difficulty makes us stronger and enriches our professional experience. Wishing you great success and lots of thankful clients!

Why portfolio sets are important by Fiona McNeil

Your lash pictures, beautifully done and photographed will create confidence in your prospective clients looking at your social media and will help you create more professional-looking advertisements and posts.

P

ortfolio sets can also be entered into online competitions. Sometimes you can get caught in a rut, lashing day in and out. But preparing a lash design and photography backdrop may put some creative fun back into your artistry and energize you! Things you can do to take great portfolio shots are designing your models lashes beforehand, implementing face studies and choosing the best mapping to make her eyes really stand out.

Creating a backdrop with lighting in a salon or a small corner in your home studio is fun and easy. Research lighting. drop by a local photography store and ask for tips, use your ring light and jump online for inspiration with posing and hair/makeup. Make sure your camera is set to high definition and snap away. Most importantly take a day off to do your models lashes and shoot without being rushed. Take photographs of the whole process for your social media and get lost in the artistry and creativity!

Lash lifting myths uncovered If you offer lash lifting or you are curious about this fantastic treatment and want to start offering this to your clients you would have seen some conflicting information which can be quite confusing so we will look at the most common misconceptions and see what is fact and fiction!

Lash lifting and lash perming is different Yes and No! Ok so the products and procedure are very similar and in fact, the process itself of what happens to the hair is the same (it does not matter where the hair is, ie if we are perming hair on your head or the lashes on your eyes, the process of perming the hair remains the same. Having said that, just because you can perm hair does not mean you are qualified to lift lashes so there is a distinct difference in the application and there are few things you need to be aware of. If you are looking to offer this to your clients then it is worth you taking an accredited course to learn the treatment fully so that you can then treat paying clients and obtain insurance for this treatment. You can’t get the lashes wet - Wrong! There are quite a few rumours that you cannot get the lashes wet for 24 hours following the lash lift treatment.

If you look at the tradition of perming hair you would wrap the hair around curlers, use the perming lotion to break the natural structure of the hair, then apply the fixing lotion to set the new structure around the curler and once this has developed your curls will stay! This is perming in a nutshell (there is a complicated process behind this but this is a simplified version) and it is not dissimilar to lash lifting. We are using different “curlers”, in our case we are using shields but the main process remains the same. Just like the hairdresser washes your perm out when it has developed, the same way you can remove your clients lifting and tinting products out once the structure is set and as you can imagine, water cannot change the structure! In fact, if you don’t remove the products thoroughly after each step there is a possibility that the solutions will continue developing and thus could damage the lashes or they could become over-processed and frizzy.

Aftercare is everything - Wrong! We hear very often that is down to the aftercare when lashes become frizzy or the lash lift is not taking or lasting very well. Whilst there are some cases where the aftercare does matter, ie clients smoking or exposing their lashes to hot air through hair dryers or opening the oven door which can result in the lashes turning frizzy, in most cases any damage to the natural lash is down to the application or incorrect procedure and processing times. A lot of brands recommend simply dry wiping to remove each step, however, this might not remove the solutions fully so the lashes could become over-processed purely through solution remaining on the lashes. Removing each step thoroughly with a damp pad is essential to the desired treatment outcome and likewise thoroughly cleaning the lashes after the treatment has been completed to remove any tint residue and finish with a leave-in conditioner will help to maintain lash health and a reliable outcome.

20 Lashes


Just like the hairdresser will wash your hair after the perm has developed, the same way we need to remove any residue of the lifting solutions. And just like the hairdresser will apply a conditioner or oil to your hair, the same way we apply a nourishing lotion to restore the lash heath. Neither water nor any oil or cream around the eye area should have an impact on your lash lift nor how long it lasts.

It does not matter how the lashes are applied on the shield - Wrong! It is crucial that the lashes are applied straight and next to each other. You need to ensure that no lashes cross over and that the angle of the lashes on the shield is correct. If the lashes are not applied correctly this will result in an untidy look once the solutions have developed and it also means that the lashes will grow out very messy.

Small shields are always best - Wrong! It is a common misconception that small shields always give the strongest curl but the right shield size actually depends on the length of the natural lashes. If you use small shields with long natural lashes the curve will look unnatural and curl back into the lid so medium or even large shields should be used. Most clients are suitable for medium shields but if you have new clients or you are unsure it is best to measure the shield with the lashes first.

Systems with shorter development times are better - Wrong! The shorter the development time of a system is the stronger the solutions have to be to achieve good and fast results. Sadly this could result in over-processed lashes which can damage the natural lash over time especially if the development times are not followed meticulously.

The more solution you apply the better the lift - Wrong! It is best to apply the solution only up to 1/3 1/2 of the natural lash to ensure full effectiveness while making sure that the lashes stay health. Applying the solution to high up on the natural lash can result in the lashes over-processing and getting frizzy (the tips are much finer than the base of the lash). It is also important to press the solutions into the lashes, so if you only dab the solutions quickly over the lashes this might result in the lash lift not fully developing. Be thorough and take time for each step as this will result in a reliable outcome.

The lash lift is not developing so it must be a faulty batch - Wrong! Most “failed” lash lifts have got a very plausible reason, it is just a case of finding the culprit. With experience, it is only natural that we get a bit slack in some things, especially if it’s busy in the salon, we chat to the client or we have other things on our mind. It is very easy to miss the tiniest bit of treatment or subconsciously take a shortcut. These things happen, but with lash lifts, it is the small things that have got a big impact so be thorough and check everything meticulously! • How long have you had the products? (keep an eye on the shelf life) •H  ow long have they been opened? (different products have got different recommendations for shelf life)

•H  ow were the products stored? (best to keep the products between 20-24 degrees in a dark and cool place out of direct sunlight) •H  ave you mixed the products thoroughly before opening? (especially if your room conditions fluctuate you need to do this before use. Remember that in the colder seasons your room can get cold through the night and warm in the day which will affect your products) • I s the shield applied correctly? (too close or even over the lash line or likewise application too far from the lash line will have an impact on the actual lift) •A  re the lashes aligned correctly on the shield? •A  re you using the right shield size? •H  ow much adhesive have you used to apply the lashes to the shield? (too much adhesive can act as a barrier) •H  ave you applied enough solution? • I s the solution applied high enough? •H  ave you pressed it into the lashes? •D  id you time the development time? (Remember that both timings, ie development and fixing time are equally important. If the step 2 is not left on long enough the lash will revert back to its original shape and lose the lift so it is important to maintain correct timings) •H  ave you removed all products thoroughly? We hope this helps to clarify some confusion and myths and we wish you all Happy Lifting!

Lash extension mistakes you may be guilty of as a beginner and how to avoid them! Are you a begginer lash artist and you can’t understand what mistakes you tend to make? You believed you had created the dreamy set and when the clients open their eyes you realize that the perfect look you were imaging transforms to downright scary, and on top of this they come back to complain about the result, and that they have fallen out too soon??

Do not be discouraged! This is every beginner eyelash extensions stylist’s nightmare but fortunately, it’s pretty easy to solve. With eyelash extensions it’s usually the little things, that when taken together make a big diffrence. Just make sure you do the following steps right.

1

Mistake number 1: you choose the wrong styling We all know the magic of eyelashes and how they can open up eyes and make them look bigger and stunning immediately, but not all styles suit every client. Most clients want the ‘’cateye’’ look, but only a very small handful of people actually have the correct eye shape to pull off this look. It is so important that you know how to correctly style. You need to take into consideration clients eye shape, distance of the eyes, natural lash growth direction and facial bone structure in order to achieve the best look for each of your clients. You also need to be able to choose the appropriate length, thickness and curl. Tell your client to look straight at you and then mark the spot on the lid where you want

22 Lashes

to give empashis in order to create the desired result (when the clients eyes are shut, it makes it very tricky to determine). Now is the perfect time to do the mapping! Lash mapping has a major effect on overall look. Symmetry is the absolute key when doing lashes and without a map it will be extremely difficult to remember which lash you should use where.

2

Mistake number 2: you don’t work with layers A very important way to achieve the perfect lash look is working with the layers. You don’t do it?? Now is the perfect time to do it!! Remember you need to put a longer lash on the bottom layers and a shorther lash on the middle and on the top layers.

3

Mistake number 3: you don’t follow the correct pre-treatment It is very important to follow the correct pre-treatment before you begin your eyelash application. You need to ensure that your client has absolutely no make up, dust or grime on her lashes. You can clean them with lash shampoo and gently remove it with water. Make sure that the eyelashes are dry before you continue the application. For best results remember to always follow up with cleanser, primer or pretreatment before you start.

4

Mistake number 4: wrong placement of patches Have you ever thought that the reason for the messy look when your client opens their eyes maybe caused by the incorrect placement of patches? Well it is the base of creating the perfect set. You should always start from the inner corners and move outwards, this way you will have more control of the placement of patches and you will avoid chemical burn and discomfort for your client. Ensure that all lower


lashes are completely covered but take care to ensure that they are not touching your clients eye. Once the gel pads have both been applied, gently comb through the lashes. Medical tape can also be used and it is an alternative way for the clients who have allergic reaction to patches.

6 5

Mistake number 5: wrong lash direction A very important factor in a clean final look is the correct lash direction. The aim of the therapist is to create immaculate uniformity of all the extensions. Unfortunately most natural lashes tend to ‘’Criss-cross’’ or grow in different directions. If we were to follow the direction of natural lashes we would have a set of very messy extensions that mimic the natural lashes. Instead we must control the direction of our extensions and use the base of the natural lashes as attachment points only. We only need a minimal amount of glue attached to the base, therefore we can easily control the direction that we wish the extensions to follow. Ignore the direction of the natural lashes, focus solely on the base of the natural lash, as this is where you will be attaching your extension. It is up to you to control the direction of the extensions. Do not let the natural lashes dictate the direction of the extension. Remember the lashes should leave the eyelid at a 90 degree perpedicular angle and the inner and outer corner lashes should fan outwards not head straight.

Mistake number 6: wrong distance from the lid Getting the correct distance from the lid is very tricky and requires a lot of experience and practice to get it perfect. They are either too close to the lid or too far off. However, both are bad. If you get the lash too close to the lid it will be very uncomfortable or even painful for your client. The lash and the adhesive will irritate their skin. Sticking the lash too far from the lid, is not as bad as getting it too close, however it will eventually grow much quicker than the other lashes and will be too heavy for the root of the natural lash. It will also look very messy and could cause the extensions to twist. The ideal distance is between 0.5-1Mm from the lid.

Mistake number 8: you don’t control the amount of glue If you have been wondering why your clients lashes are not lasting as long as they should be, it is probably because of the amount of glue you’re using during the treatment. Try and scoop the glue but not too much. You just Want the tiniest ball of glue on the lash not a big blob.If you get too much glue then try to scoop slower.

7

Mistake number 7: stickies Stickies are the most important thing to watch out for when applying lashes. The reason it is so important to check your work for stickies is because they are extremely damaging to the natural lashes. The first step to prevent stickies is to correctly isolate the lash. Checking your work for stickies is very important. Always ensure you save time at the end of a treatment in order to do this thoroughly and correctly. Check each individual lash with your tweezers, do not forget to check every natural lash to ensure that any baby lashes are not stuck anywhere.

It’s all about the safety of your clients and to make an incredible look! Remember if you want to touch the stars you should work hard first. Everyone of us can create perfection but we should wait a little bit and practice every day! Never give up, believe in yourself!! Thank you for reading, I hope you found this information useful.

Loretta eyelash adhesive by Flawless Lashes by Loreta Trainer Kai and Loreta @flawless_lashes_by_loreta

Cyanoacrylate is the main ingredient in the vast majority of professional eyelash adhesives. Cyanoacrylate is an acrylic monomer that transforms to a hard-plastic state after curing or drying. In fact, the term “cyanoacrylate adhesive” describes all quick-bonding adhesives. Cyanoacrylate adhesives differ from other adhesives, due to its special bonding conditions. This is because cyanoacrylate glue can only bond to a surface when there is moisture present. This means if the cyanoacrylate glue is placed on a perfectly dry surface, it will not stick to the surface or form a bond. If there is too much adhesive and you pour a bucket of water on it straight away. The adhesive instantly forms a “skin” but is still fresh and not cured inside! So pay attention to this! Let’s take a closer look at the curing process…. Cyanoacrylate adhesives are prone to blooming

or frosting, a cosmetically unappealing phenomenon that presents as a whitish haze or film surrounding the bond. Blooming occurs when cyanoacrylate monomers evaporate too rapidly and become airborne or when too much moisture is present and the unreacted cyanoacrylate cures too rapidly causing an exothermic reaction allowing blooming to occur. So, how do we avoid the dreaded bloom? Use accelerators – The faster the adhesive cures, the lower the chance there will be unreacted cyanoacrylate monomers that become airborne. Adding an accelerator to speed the rate

of curing, reduces the chances of blooming.

2

Avoid extremes in relative humidity – If the relative humidity is too low, the adhesive will take longer to cure. If it’s too high, the curing reaction may occur too quickly, and an exothermic reaction may allow blooming to occur. Relative humidity of 40 to 70% is recommended for cyanoacrylate curing. Avoid extremes in temperature – Elevated temperatures increase the vapour pressure of the cyanoacrylate monomer, leading to a higher chance of blooming. A temperature-controlled environment as close to 70°F is ideal. Avoid the use of old adhesives – Old

Lash Bash Island Retreat It has been one whole year since Lash Bash Island Retreat, and my heart still flutters when I reminisce.

Lash Bash was organized by Julia Mann, Mimmi Ebbersten and Mandy Jeffery, three powerhouses of the industry, so when I was invited to speak at their third installment, I jumped at the opportunity! It was held at the Yacht Club on Hamilton Island in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. I travelled 23 hours from Vancouver to Hamilton Island, and as I got off the plane, I was hit with balmy weather, palm trees, and the gentle chirps of the local wildlife. I was transported to another world - it was paradise! The event started with a cocktail night at One Tree Hill. We took a shuttle up together, and the sunset views were to die for! It was a great way

get to know each other and create connections before the conference. On day 1, we were greeted with a delightful breakfast spread and generous goodie bags full of unique and thoughtful gifts. After a brief introduction from Mimmi and Mandy, we heard from Kelly Storer on “How to Build and Keep a Great Team”, followed by Ebba and Mimmi Ebbersten on “Building a Winning Training Concept”. After a delectable lunch with an incredible view, we watched Julia Mann’s video on “Creating Automated Sales Funnels”. (Julia was abroad for another work engagement, and her presence was definitely missed!) Rounding out

for the organizers, speakers and attendees to

the day was Levi Shephard with a presentation

on “Optimizing and Maximizing Your Business”. Nobody comes to an island paradise to sit inside an auditorium all day, so the conference ended at 2 o’clock each day to leave time to enjoy the island, and the organizers thoughtfully planned activities for us. After day 1, we were randomly split up into teams of four for a golf cart scavenger hunt that took us on a tour of the entire island, doing some really fun things! Day 2 of the conference started with a morning tea, and the morning’s speakers were yours truly with “Video Content Creation”, followed by Sommer Deaves with “Building Your Brand on Instagram”, followed by a delicious lunch.


We then heard from Rikke Steenskov Udengaard about “Goal Setting and Life Balance”, followed by Otto and Zoe Mitter on “Setting Your Mind, Body and Soul Up for Success”. We then had a little time to enjoy the afternoon before our group dinner. Dinner was a family style sunset dining experience at the Manta Ray Restaurant. The night was capped off with some heartfelt thankyous, an impromptu musical performance, and a sunset view that can’t be beat. The last day included an optional beach excursion to Whitehaven Beach, frequently named the nicest beach in the world! For me, this was one of the highlights. The water was

as talc. Leaving Whitehaven Beach was difficult for me, but the consolation was a group BBQ at the Mitters’. This wasn’t part of the event, but just an open invitation to all speakers and attendees, because the Mitters are just amazing people. Overall, my impression of Lash Bash Island Retreat is - I absolutely loved it! The location, venue, topics, attendees, events and excursions - I loved it all! I really enjoyed the intimate nature of the group. Everyone was welcome to everything, no exclusivity, just fun for all. I would not hesitate to attend again, in fact, I think a big part of my heart is still on Hamilton Island.

World Lash Day 23rd October

World Lash Day was set up in 2015 to celebrate everything lashes. At the time it was set up it seemed that every industry had its own day from Hairdressers to Accountants but not for Lash Artists. World Lash Day was set up to focus on the Professional Eyelash Extension Industry (Lash Artists), however recently we have had members of the public celebrating with us.

B

akers making cakes with eyelashes on, Make-up artists featuring certain looks to accentuate the eyes using strip lashes and also various make up brands doing special offers in addition to lash brands offers. Planoly the Instagram planning took also added us last year as an Official International Day on their calendar. As Lash Inc is in Glasgow in Scotland we thought we would keep it local and celebrate in the hotel just across from our office. Our speakers were Mike Berry @dynamicmike1, Jessika Aude Gautier @starlashesworld, Deborah Hendren @iconicbeautyboutique, Olivia Conlon

32 Lashes

@oliviaconlon, Shey Peral @lashey_s and Wendy Maltman @themaltinghouse Mike Berry an SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) expert, opened the event with a cycle in on his unicycle. Mike is a fantastically fun person and he shared with us how to get to page one on Google, almost instantly! Each speaker covered various topics. The topics ranged from work life balance, striving for perfection, pricing, how to get your lash work published, brow lamination and personal branding. The day finished off at Pink Inc Cafe @pinkinccafe. A cafe/coffee shop that opened a little earlier this year by myself and my

boyfriend. We thought the event attendees might like a little bit of pink and flowers to brighten up a chilly Glasgow evening. I would absolutely love to hear from lash artists and brands to find out if you did anything special to celebrate World Lash Day. We would love to cover what you did in one of our next issues. Dates to look out for are‌ National Lash Day 19th Feb 2020 World Lash Day 23rd Oct 2020 If you are interested in being involved next year please get in touch info@lashinc.com

LASH FRIENDLY SKIN CARE

Pure Moisture keeps your skin clean and hydrated and your lashes intact

You've got your gorgeous new lash extensions in and are looking amazing. While you can definitely get addicted to the glam look, there are a few useful tips for keeping your lashes in tip-top shape without sacrificing your skin health. 1) Avoid getting water into the eyes or lashes for the first 24 hours. That means it's best to shower before your lash appointment so you can avoid getting your lashes wet. 2) Be extra careful with your skin care. Instead of washing face, use a cleansing pad such as Emergency Facelift to remove makeup, dead skin cells and pollution from face. Swipe the pad across entire face, avoiding the eye area. 3) Don't rub eye area dry - gently tab with towel instead. 4) Don't use oil-based products - skin care or makeup.. We recommend switching to an oil-free moisturizer such as Step 3 Oxygenating Oil-Free Moisturizer to avoid any accidental contact with the lashes 5) Don't wear mascara on your lashes. Your extensions are designed to look natural and long without any clumps. Mascara might cause the lashes to smudge or shed. 6) Brush your lashes once a day. Your provider should provide you with a special brush to comb your lashes to keep them looking fabulous.

Featured Lash Artist - Carla Gianotti


The #LashWithLove Movement by Nina Andrews

Hello my name is Nina and I have anxiety (crowd mumbles “Hello Nina”) and while lashing is my passion and I’m known for helping to teach the next generation of Australian lash artists how to get by in this turbulent and confusing world of volumetric calculations and advanced layering styling methods. Anxiety has always played a starring role in my progression.

The main reason was the amount of negativity I came across in the forums. Someone would work themselves to the bone to create a set they were excited to share with their peers, post it in forums asking for constructive criticism on how they can take their lashing to the next level and improve, only to get shot down in a violent and soul-destroying way. Major anxiety trigger. This continued to the point that I noticed only the best of the best were posting their pictures anymore, giving beginners an unrealistic expectation of how far along they should be in their craft by measuring their year 2 against someone else’s year 10. It was amidst this miasma of broken hearts and defeatist newbie techs stating it was time to “throw it all in”, I noticed a little blip that was perfect for me. This is how the #LashWithLove movement began. As gentle assistance and words of encouragement from veterans of the game, those

44 Lashes

who had seen the battleground of 0.20mm and the damage it left behind to our tattered reputations, and who were working to grow the industry into a higher state of elevation with safety via educating and supporting those who requested the assistance. #LashWithLove became my battle cry to those who needed to know it takes time to become the consummate artists you see in many salons. But this then spread to not only being gentle and loving to each other, but also to ourselves. How to use this knowledge to better our own salons. Learning to love and gift an incredible and worthy experience for your clients, leading with love and educating them to the best of your ability, making the salon experience a sacred ritual where you can go to relax, safely chat with your girlfriends and have a giggle. Not only leaving the salon with a bomb set of lashes but also leaving the salon feeling lighter, acknowledged and heard by another human being.


The lash with love movement spread to the entire industry, seeing each other as collaborators and support, not the tearing down of yesteryear. The #LashWIthLove movement became more than just being polite on social media and helping newbie techs, it became working arm in arm with our sisters, realising there is enough business out there for everyone, and that if we all bloom in our own unique way there would be little overlap anyway as we are all targeting different demographics. It became about making sure every client had the most amazing experience within your walls, that they left walking straighter and told all their friends, not just for the lashes, but because they felt a true connection- lashes almost became an afterthought. This my friends is how you grow an empire and show the world what you are made of. By how you treat your peers, strangers and clients.

So now I encourage you to tag me @lashesonpointsalon and use the #LashWithLove to show me how you are making the experience special for your clients, how you are providing the love and support you missed, to raise up this industry of ours out of the murky depths of bitter keyboard warriors into the light of embracing that this service is not just plastic and adhesive, it’s a feeling, and when its done right its worth every penny and all the hours we put into our craft. How can you improve this experience for every one of your clients? How can you treat your peers with love and respect? How can you help this next generation to not repeat the mistakes of our past? I’m in this for the long haul, and I’ll continue to spread my message of love and respect beyond just applying lashes. #LashWithLove


Mental health in the lash industry by Dee Moore

My battle with mental health started long before my lashing career.

L

ashing made it better as I was doing something I loved, and the pure concentration day in day out meant there was no time to think about the voices in my head. The problems really began when I gained a level of confidence and expertise that lashing would come naturally so I didn’t need to focus so much anymore. This was 4 years ago; I was working from my home salon and lashing had really taken off at this point. Working alone comes with so many challenges, you have no one to bounce ideas off and I built up this stigma that if I asked another lash artist for help, I would seem stupid. This was the last thing I wanted, my peers talking negatively about me. So that was that. I would sit alone day in day out, sometimes for 14 hours a day and just think. I started to create this sense of comparison and belief that my lashes weren’t as good as the ones I endlessly saw on Instagram or Facebook. Then the day came. As it is bound to in business, I received one negative and “mean” review. This client was unhappy with their lashes and complained. I wasn’t prepared to deal with that, no one taught me how. My depression and anxiety spiralled. They battled in my head continued. To top it all off, I started to notice a local girl copying all my Facebook ads word for word. Which lead to her stealing my clients. One of my posts had received 600 comments and she went out of her way to message every person privately. Telling them that her lashes were better and cheaper.

46 Lashes

Wow. This was the last straw. I felt so alone, and it broke me. Behind my lash mask, I would sob trying to wipe away my tears before they fell on the client. I felt trapped so I would hide in my bedroom as client after client knocked on my door, called me and messaged me. I just had to ignore them all as I just wanted it to stop. I had isolated myself, and in my head, I was such a huge failure and I had no one to turn to. I eventually reached out to a business girlfriend, not in lashing but in business, and I told her everything. She was a godsend and helped me devise a game plan: 1. Delete every lash business off my Insta 2. Immediately unfollow any local lash artists in my city - if you don’t see it you won’t care! 3. Cut back my hours to max 8 (no more 14hr shifts) 4. Hire an employee 5. Move the business - rent a room somewhere out of my home space. There was no surprise that I had experienced a high level of burn out and a mental breakdown. I have had a few more since this time but I am so very passionate to make sure my fellow lash artists never feel alone. I will always be here, even when it feels like you have no one.

I have learnt so much over the years. Here are my top MUST dos for all lash artists to take care of their mental health: 1. Practice gratitude - buy a gratitude diary if it will help and write at least 5 things every day that you are grateful for. 2. Start how you mean to go on and set your boundaries - booking fees, cancellation policies, be strict with your clients i.e. no bookings on Sunday’s or after 8 pm 3. F  ind yourself a lash buddy! Someone you can honestly talk to about all the craziness that comes with being a lash artist, if you can’t find one, I will happily be your buddy! 4. C  reate a complaints procedure right NOW. As there is no point in doing it when your emotional and crying because someone left you your first 1-star review. 5. And lastly, never EVER tear anyone down, only lift one another up I feel so much more positive now compared to four years ago. I still have my moments and I still need to be mindful about my mental health, but I believe in myself so much more, and know I am a KILLER boss. And for the days when I’m not feeling all that great, I have a plan, a team and a strong support network. So even when it’s dark, I can see the light.

Where is the Love? Forums, support groups, how to help your fellow lash artist Can there be too much? Too much support? Too much information? Too many people trying to help? Too many groups and options?

Y

ears ago we were reliant on our initial training and the support we got from the tutor. Then we had to roll up our sleeves, get practising, learn and improve over time. If you were working in a salon you got encouragement, feedback and motivation from other therapists around you but if you were working for yourself it could sometimes be lonely and disheartening. You wouldn’t be the only one who was ready to throw the tweezers away once or twice along the way! In contrast, nowadays we have endless options to get support, tutorials and feedback. This in itself is great and offers huge potential. If you join social media and participate in

groups, post pictures or ask questions you can reach further than just your trainer or local support via fellow therapists. On youtube, you can also get tutorials and see how others work or what other treatments or methods could be available. That is great news, isn’t it? So what could be bad about it? Well, as always you have to take things with a pinch of salt. It is only natural to take everything as gospel when you are starting with a new treatment and there is sooooooo much to learn and to take in. BUT, be critical and don’t believe everything! There are a few pitfalls to watch out for:

1

Not everyone posting online is an “expert” You will find many self-made tutors online and those who have just been practising without the fundamental training or knowledge so not all you see is best practice and/or safe for you and your clients.

2

Reinventing the wheel? There are only so many ways you can do a treatment and if it has not been done before or you see rather strange methods appearing online, question WHY it hasn’t been done like this before. Could it pose a risk to you or your client? Does it go against anything that you have learned? Is there an actual advantage of doing it this way?

3

What products are used? Not all products are legal everywhere. Different countries or regions have different legislation and rules so you need to take care and consider if those products or practices comply with your local rules and regulations. The internet and forums often have members from around the world and buying products from abroad has its risks and also cost involved (import fees, duties, taxes and of course the obligation to comply with legislation by obtaining safety assessments and registration of said products which may or may not be allowed in your country) Also, check your insurance as other products or methods might conflict with your policy cover.

4

Most support groups thrive to be friendly and supportive, however, there are different types of groups so be keep an eye on the rules to make sure you know who your fellow members are. Some groups are open to anyone which means it can be consumers and self-taught therapists whilst other groups are professionals only which means they are (or should be) fully trained therapists in the subject of the group. Even in a group of qualified therapists, you will find conflicting information, controversial

subjects and methods that cause huge disagreement which can be due to personal opinion but also the training, experience and skill of those therapists. You will find therapists who have been doing a particular treatment for many years and thus are very experienced opposed to those who have maybe just trained and want to give advice straight away. Likewise, experience isn’t everything as things change so quickly and some methods and products are now outdated or have been replaced by a fresher approach.

5

Can it be too much? Can there be too much of a good thing? Yes, in some cases it can be very confusing if you ask 10 people and you get 10 different views, 10 different product recommendations or comments of what you should or should not do. By all means, read it and consider the options. Try and work out what will be best for you, your clients and your business, after all, it is your livelihood and you need to find out what works for you. In a nutshell, groups, forums and tutorials are fantastic, and they can be supportive (from a professional point of view but also a personal one) as you can get back up, encouragement and also reassurance. Learn how to read them and

use them wisely. Don’t compromise on safety for you or your client and take things with a pinch of salt and you can learn a lot. Join in with a bit of chat or giggles but don’t take things too personally as things can easily be misunderstood (remember different countries and mentalities) as things that are perfectly acceptable for you might feel like an insult to someone else. If the shoe is on the other foot and you are the therapist trying to help others be kind and try and remember how it was to first start. Some find it harder to learn than others and some might find it difficult to take constructive criticism and not to take it personally. It is extremely easy to misunderstand each other especially if you have never met, you are not in the same area or country and you don’t speak the same language. Try and help with subjects you are confident in and 100% know what you are talking about. Helping others with hearsay or rumours can cause more confusion through misleading information. All in all though, if you have the time to help others it is fantastic and it is people like you who we need online to build strong support.

Business 53


by Katrina Law

Environmentally sustainable practice I love being an eyelash artist and stylist and running my own business ‘Simply Gorgeous’ in Strathfieldsaye, a suburb of Bendigo in regional Victoria. I have built my business from the ground up focusing on doing what I love and offering a boutique service to my clients.

As my business has grown, I have taken a step back to reflect on how much waste is generated in the beauty sector and to think about how to deliver a high-end service without compromising my standards. Pampering my clients is a must, but I don’t want to ignore the waste issue our ‘single use’ industry has become. I encourage all lash technicians, business owners, wholesalers and lash leaders to stand back, reflect, and make some big or small changes that can make an environmental difference. As lash technicians we all work differently but if we give a little thought about why we do things, at times almost automatically, I think we will all find some areas we can implement some environmentally beneficial practices. Here are some of the things I consider: • I give my clients their mascara brush at the end of each session and give them a handy hint that these brushes should be replaced each refill but don’t throw them away. They are great little brushes for getting into hard to reach cleaning places like vents in the car, around the shower screen, at the base

of tapware and your jewellery. I’m sure they would be useful in the man cave as well. •T  he wrappers from under eye gel pads along with the backing strip from each eye pad go into my soft plastic recycling (both Woolworths and Coles have a soft plastic recycling program). • I like to have my clients clean their own lashes following careful cleansing and priming instructions. I used to prime with single vial saline water, but I now use a large bottle and decant a few mils into disposable shot glasses and the client uses a disposable eyeshadow brush to prime their lashes with saline. Wait!!! Stop the bus!!!!! Why am I using disposable shot glasses? I’m off to buy a set of stainless steel or glass shot glasses that can go in the dishwasher. • Now, let’s talk about bedding. Are we best to wash it after each client? Water, energy, time, detergent, cost...hmmm. I’ve been using tear off disposable sheeting that I place on top of my beautifully decorated, comfy and practical bed but it’s a lot of disposable sheeting going to landfill.

I’m trialling the ability to compost these, but I don’t think I’m going to win this one, so I’ll look at environmentally friendly options perhaps paper. • Let’s turn now to rebooking our clients. How many appointment cards are used just out of habit? Why not ask your client if they would like an electronic appointment card as an alternative? Most of my clients opt for the electronic appointment at the time of rebooking and they also receive an electronic system reminder message the night before their appointment. • I’m an obsessive lash and gadget shopper and I’m always on the web searching for that tool that I NEEEED so bad or the lashes that are perfect to work with or the adhesive that never fails. I’m on my postman’s Christmas card list I’m that obsessive. I get it that suppliers want to ensure the parcel arrives safely but I like to make sure that air filled plastic pockets used for padding are deflated and put into the soft plastic recycling, cards and excess paperwork go into general recycling, boxes can be reused


or recycled and polystyrene is separated (if I take polystyrene to our recovery yard they can compress it and recycle it but it can’t go into our general recycling bin). Ohhh and last but not least….I make sure that all lolly pops are consumed by me!! The wrapping goes in soft plastics and stick in general recycling bin. Job done! • Under consideration and investigation now is re-useable under eye gel pads. Gel pads make up a lot of my waste and I am looking into gel pads that can be sanitised by boiling. I have seen ones that can be washed with hot soapy water and re-used. I’m not ruling them out at this stage but hygiene is a huge factor so I will investigate it some more before I decide. • Some clever lash tech’s out there are giving the boxes that eyelashes come in along with the mascara brush and a business card to clients. I give mine to my sister who does silversmithing and she uses them for silver bits or finished items. • Think about the business advantage of being able to promote your business as

environmentally friendly. Put your pledge on your Facebook page, website, on a poster on the wall. What the heck! Go all the way and have a suggestion box in the salon. Everybody wins from this; your business, the environment and the client. •W  e all love being given a gift voucher that wows us with presentation. When I was designing mine, I knew I wanted the look and feel to be consistent with my colour palette and the boutique feel I was creating for my business. I decided to go with black carry bags with a strip of black and gold swirls consistent with my business image. When I sell a gift voucher, the voucher is placed inside the very lux bag along with Ferrero Roche’s (again black and gold) and make a point of saying to the client ‘please re-use the bag’. • Calling all caffeine addicts – A coffee each working day over 48 weeks of the year is 240 cups going to landfill. Having your business branding put on reusable cups for staff gets your business name out there more – why waste an opportunity for

free advertising. You could even sell your branded reusable cups to clients. Some coffee shops offer discounts for keep cups too. I’m a realist as well as an eyelash artist and stylist. I do recognise, due to the hygiene factors of our industry that we can’t be totally waste free, but we can put the issue out there for discussion and consideration and start chipping away at some simple changes that will make a huge difference. I don’t have all the answers nailed. I’m one person having a go and you can too. Lastly, I would like to put the call out there to movers and shakers in the industry to assist in promoting environmentally sustainable eyelash extension practices, sales, education and opportunities. Awards, recognition, workshops, accreditation and curriculum design are all channels for environmental change that largely go silent in our industry. Your collective voice can empower, inspire and make a positive difference.

Six secrets behind a successful business London Lash is one of the most wellknown European lash brands. Only last year we sold 27,910 bottles of glue. But that’s not very exciting... What’s really exciting, is the fact that I started London Lash only 5 years ago. After starting my journey in lash industry as a therapist a lot of my clients and friends were asking me if I can teach them how to apply eyelash extensions. I thought - why not? Of course, I can teach you. But I wasn’t a government approved training academy, I couldn’t issue certificates, so my first step was to approach a few big eyelash brands in England and ask if I could become an eyelash trainer for their brand. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) all of them refused my application. Of course I was upset.. but I wanted to teach eyelash courses so much, that I one day I thought:“why don’t I set up my own training academy”? After doing some research, I realised that it’s not that difficult to do. Yes, of course, it requires some extra qualifications and quite a lot of paperwork, but it’s certainly possible. And this is where my proper business journey began.. My 6 secrets behind successful business: Don’t dream big. Sounds controversial, doesn’t it? Everyone always says - dream big. I’d say I agree and at the same time I disagree with DREAM BIG statement. Because sometimes big dreams can paralyse us, they scare us. They are so big and so ambitious, so we don’t even know where to start.

1

56 Business

For example, you are working as a beauty therapist in the salon and one day you dream to open your own big and beautiful Lash Studio. It’s brand new and absolutely stunning. All celebrities visit your salon. You have 20 lash technicians working for you. And you only do eyelashes occasionally, for some of your regular clients, for your own pleasure. Sounds good doesn’t it? But how to achieve it? Where to start? Look for investors? Or go to the bank to borrow money? Where to look for lash technicians? How to teach them? Where to get customers? There are thousands of questions and fears in your head, you don’t know where to start, so unfortunately, more likely, you won’t do anything at all. You’ll just keep dreaming: “One day I will do it”. My advice - forget about your dream for now. And concentrate on the short term small goal towards your dream. For example, if you are working for somebody, think: how can I rent a beauty room and start working for myself? If you already work for yourself - think how I can get fully booked? Which marketing channels should I use to advertise myself? Once you are getting fully booked - How can you raise your prices and improve your profitability? You won’t even notice how with these little steps your business will naturally grow to the point when you’ll finally open your beautiful Lash Studio. Sometimes we don’t need to think big to go far. My advice - one step at a time.

2

Do things your own way. When I started to work as a beauty therapist – I was getting no support at all from my family. Most of my family are mathematicians and physicists and unfortunately, they were a bit embarrassed to have me working in the beauty salon. You can’t even imagine how many times I’ve heard: “Hanna, go and find yourself a normal job”. But I had a job. I was a beauty therapist. I loved what I was doing and I didn’t want to change. So I told them all – look, this is my life. Not your life. You live your life the way you want. And I’m going to live my life the way I want. My advice to you. Please, don’t listen to anyone. On your way to success you’ll always have people laughing at you, criticising you and saying that it’s impossible to achieve your goals. Just ignore them. If you can – stop communicating with them at all. Instead of talking to these poisonous people, try to surround yourself with people who will support you and help you in your journey. If you are struggling to find support from people – just surround yourself with motivational and educational books.

3

Love your mistakes. When you are growing your business, everything is new for new. Nobody teaches you how to do things, so everything you do - you do the first time. So naturally you will make lots of mistakes! Whether that is recruiting the wrong people, overpaying for salon rent, counting taxes incorrectly and so on. But how do the majority of people react on a mistake? Normally they get upset and sometimes even give up on the project thinking that they are useless.


6

Do you know that burglars broke into our lash salon in London two months ago? All my staff got really upset, but I was actually really happy. First reason for my happiness they didn’t break the windows and they didn’t steal much. Second reason - it was such a wonderful lesson! At that time we were moving our lash products into a new big warehouse and, to be honest with you, we didn’t even think much about security. After somebody broke into salon, we realised that if this would happen with our warehouse - it would be a massive problem. We could potentially lose all our stock. And we don’t want this problem to happen. So as a result, our new warehouse is as protected as government treasure fund. Nobody can break into it. My advice to you - always be positive and just accept the fact that you’ll always be making mistakes on your business journey. You can’t stop yourself from making mistakes. But what you can do - is to change your mind about them. Change your relationships with mistake. Think about them, analyse them, and they will give you lots of new knowledge.

4

Prioritise the right things. Once I’ve heard this sentence - “You can’t run a successful bakery and be a baker at the same time”. This simple sentence triggered lots of thoughts in my head and changed the way I’m doing the business completely. Think about it. You can’t imagine an owner of multi-million pound pancake factory who spends five days a week baking these pancakes. No. He won’t do it. He needs to run the business. So, two years ago I stopped doing lashes, I stopped doing teaching, I stop replying to messages on Facebook and Instagram, I stopped doing everything. That’s not my job. That’s the job for my employees. My role in the company - to move it forward, to develop it. My job is to think. I’d like to give the same advice for you. It might be financially difficult at first, but trust me - the sooner you start employing staff and step away from actual salon work, the faster your business will grow. By delegating day to day tasks, you’ll release an enormous amount of time to spend on your business growth and development.

5

Never stop learning. Over the past few years I’ve read thousands of articles, hundreds of books and watched lots of YouTube videos. All business related. First, I learnt about lash application, then I learnt about salon customer service, then I learnt about social media marketing and so on. Every single day of my life I learn something new. Something which is important for my business and something I can implement straight away. When I was living in London, on my own, I even threw my TV away as I always thought that watching TV is a useless thing and a total waste of my life. Education was the only thing I wanted to spend my free time on. I won’t recommend you to throw your TV away, but I’ll advise you start scheduling learning time into your calendar. Spend just 20-30 min a day learning something new. Concentrate on practical knowledge that you can implement straight away. And soon you’ll see massive improvement in your business.

Be unique. I noticed that a lot of business owners are mentioning competitors when I ask them about their business. They watch their competitors, they think about their competitors, they try to be better than competitors. I always found it a bit strange. Yes, it’s good to have an idea of what your competitors are doing, but thinking about them and competing with them - it’s a total waste of time. When you are doing the business - it’s all about the quality of your product and services, it’s all about satisfaction of your customers and employees. All you need to do - is to concentrate on your business and think of how to do it better. Forget about competitors.. It really doesn’t matter what they are doing. What’s really important - it’s what YOU are doing. One of the reasons why London Lash is so successful, because we really try to be unique. We don’t copy anyone - we come up with new fresh ideas. For example, I was the first one who came up with the idea of paper boxes for lash trays. I really wanted to reduce the amount of non-recyclable plastic boxes. It was a massive success - we gained lots of new loyal customers. Because we were unique, we came up with new good ideas. Now every second lash brand is coming up with the same paper packaging as us. We are being copied now. But it’s fine. We were the first and we’ve gained a lot out of this. So, my advice to you. Don’t let competitors steal your time and energy. Better spend your time and energy on your products, services and clients. I can guarantee that if you do your business will always be incredibly successful!

Photograph by Jill Heijligers-Peloquin demonstrates the rule of thirds

Tips to professional-looking photos for social media

1

Don’t zoom Smartphone cameras are improving, but the second you start zooming, you lose some of the picture quality. It sounds simple, but simply get closer! Or, take the photo then crop it later. If you do it this way, they won’t look blurry.

2

Use the rule of thirds You could be using the nicest of cameras, but if your photo composition

is all wrong, you may as well be using a disposable. The rule of thirds is one of the first principles you learn in a photography class as it’s highly important for well-balanced and intriguing photos. The rule is to break down an image and visualize it in thirds, both with horizontal and vertical lines. This gives you 9 imaginary boxes on your proposed photo. The 4 most inner lines on your grid are your guides for placing focal points in your photo. When taking a photo with an iPhone, you’ll notice the gird lines automatically appear on the camera screen.

3

Use camera apps for more control Rather than snapping photos straight from your camera, try several apps that give you more control. Camera+ is a popular option for iPhone users. DSLR Camera Pro is a hot choice for Android users. As the photographer, you have more options to take creative shots with these apps. Each one costs around £3 or less.

58 Lashes

4

Add a new lens You can actually buy lenses for your smartphone. You can buy a set of lenses for as little as £10 on Amazon. You can get magnetic or clip on lenses that go right over the camera lens on your phone.

5

Use natural light Natural light, there is nothing like it. Smartphones aren’t great with lighting, so to compensate for this make sure you take photos near natural light. Going outside is a great option, but if you need to shoot indoors, shoot near a window. However, you don’t want to shoot directly into the window or your photo will be too bright. Instead, put your product off to an angle and take the picture with your back to the window. Using the flash isn’t a good idea either. The flash in your smartphone isn’t great, and will likely cast a yellow light or shadows over your product. It’s not flattering on a product or person.

6

Use online editing tools Once you’ve taken your shots, turn to a photo-editing app or tool to crop, straighten, or enhance your photos with filters. Pixlr Editor, GIMP, BeautyPlus, and Adobe Photoshop Express are all great options. They’re free and easy to use for first timer editors.

Now that we’ve covered smartphonespecific tips, here are three additional tips to:

7

Take a variety of shots Practice makes perfect, and variety helps. If you take two or three shots of the same product in a different setting, you’re bound to get a slew of great pics. Eventually, you’ll have a stockpile of product shots that you can rely on. We usually take 5 – 10 photos and choose 1.

8

Keep things looking clean and bright Not many people like to look at an Instagram feed with dull, dark photos. Keep it bright, colourful if that fits with your brand. Try to keep backgrounds clutter free, Everything has a place and purpose, think staged photos which are the most popular in Insta-land.

9

Keep things Interesting and fun So it is not all about the technical side. You have to keep things interesting and a but fun. Put some personality into it. Try to be different whenever you can. Do yoga eating a yogurt. Do something a bit outside what your followers expect. Give your follower some behind the scenes images and videos on your stories where you can have a bit more of a play without ruining your look. Have fun!
