The lash palette will help keep you organized. One key to being successful in your lash business, is to stay organized. Being organized will keep you more efficient with your time, in turn allowing you to take more clients in a day. This also means more revenue generated. Clients will appreciate you being ready to go, especially for shorter lash fill appointments, when they may be pressed for time, and/or popping in during a lunch break.
In order to stay organized and make the best use of your lashing time, we recommend having everything that you need for the service close by. Be ready to start the service as soon as decisions about length, curl, and diameter have been determined.
Whether your appointment is a with a new or returning client, all appointments start with either an initial consultation or a follow up “check-in” with the client about their desired lash length, curl & thickness. Once this consultation has occurred, its best to be able to get started right away. Don’t take time away from the client’s appointment to fumble around and find the lashes you need.
One way to do this is to use labeled lash palette. We recommend designating a separate lash palette to each of the most commonly used curls and diameters, for quick and easy access. We also recommend labeling the curl and diameter on each tile. Then line up the strips vertically from shortest (8mm at the top) to the longest (15mm at the bottom), so you can quickly determine which lashes you are grabbing when working on the client. This also takes away the guess work, making it easier to be attentive to, or talk to a your client during the appointment.
We have found that lining up the lash strips in this way, not only keeps you more organized, but also leaves space between the strips, making it easier for you to grab the lashes off the strips quickly and more efficiently, especially when creating volume fans. This way, you can also keep track of which lengths are low and therefore keep backups of those close for restocking your palette.
The lash palette will make your life so much easier!
Here at The Lash Professional, we have designed a lash palette with pre-labeled lengths, ready to fill with your desired curl and diameter for quick and organized lashing! It also fits perfectly aside a crystal stone on the lash pillow. This all makes more time efficient appointments.
Using these tips and keeping your lash palette organized and tidy will help you keep a smooth flow and transition between appointments. Which, in turn, will benefit both you and your clients, especially when you have back to back appointments through the day.
