Keeping track of inventory is essential for a lash artist to never run out of supplies in the middle of an appointment. This is our biggest nightmare! This can be achieved by creating a detailed inventory list of all the products needed for lash extensions. The list should include the quantity of each product, its expiry date, and the date it was last restocked. This information can be organized in a spreadsheet or a specialized inventory management software.
Know what’s in your inventory!
By keeping track of which lash trays are running low and which ones you tend to use the most, you can ensure that you always have the supplies you need to keep your clients looking and feeling their best. By updating this list regularly, you can easily see which trays are running low and prioritize which ones to restock first.
Another way to keep track of your lash supplies is to use a color coding system. For example, you could highlight green for trays that are fully stocked, yellow for ones that are running low, and red stickers for ones that need to be restocked immediately. This can help you quickly identify which products need attention and streamline your restocking process.
Items you’ll need ALL THE TIME!
By tracking the number of clients you see, you can get a good idea of how much lash adhesive, trays, and supplies you will need to order in advance.
Having lash trays is self explanatory. It’s the most important thing besides adhesive! Not having the right length or curl can result in an unsatisfied client and a missed opportunity for repeat business. To avoid this, it's a good idea to keep a wide selection of lash extensions on hand. You'll want to have a range of lengths, from short to long, as well as different curls, including C, CC, and D curls. Additionally, you may want to stock up on colored lash extensions to offer your clients something unique.
Lash adhesive have a limited shelf life, and it can dry out over time. Make sure you’re changing them out every 4 weeks. If you don't have a backup adhesive, it can be frustrating to find yourself without one when you need it. By having a spare adhesive, you'll always be prepared for any situation.
When choosing an adhesive, it's important to select one that is compatible with your environment’s temperature and humidity. Make sure to check the expiry date and store it in a cool, dry place away from sunlight.
Accidents happen, and it's not uncommon for tweezers to slip out of your hand and fall on the ground. That's why it's always a good idea to keep backup tweezers on hand. Having a backup pair of tweezers can save you time and stress. If you drop your primary pair of tweezers, you won't have to waste time searching for them or cleaning them off. Instead, you can simply grab your backup pair and continue working.
These small plastic rings are designed to fit around your finger and hold a small amount of lash glue, making it easy to dip your extension in the glue before applying it to your natural lash. Without them, it would be a big mess! If you ever run out, you can always use a jade stone with some tape over it to avoid the mess and use a drop of glue on it.
Not only do gel pads they protect the delicate skin of your client from any accidental poking or prodding with your tweezers, they also serve as a barrier to keep the bottom lashes from sticking to the top lashes during the application process. Using gel pads also provides a more comfortable experience for your client as they help to keep their eyes closed and prevent any discomfort or irritation.
Tape is used for taping down lashes and pulling up the eyelid to enhance visibility while applying extensions. Additionally, lash tape is useful for isolation techniques, which involve separating the natural lashes from each other to ensure that no two lashes are stuck together during the extension process.
Not only do you need them for your own use during application, but they also make a great addition to your clients' aftercare kits. When looking for mascara brushes, it's important to find ones that are specifically designed for lash extensions. These brushes typically have finer bristles that won't get caught on the extensions and cause damage. They also tend to be disposable, so you can use a fresh brush for each client.
These small, disposable applicators are designed to assist with the precise application of lash primer and bonder. They are the ideal tool for applying these products, as they allow for a precise and controlled application, ensuring that the product is applied exactly where it is needed.
When performing a lash bath, lip applicator is used to gently apply a cleaning solution to your client's lashes, removing any dirt, oil, or makeup residue that may have accumulated. This step is crucial in ensuring that the lashes are clean and ready for further treatment. You can also use them in place of microbrushes when using primer and bonder.
Lastly, lash shampoo is essential for lash baths and for selling to clients as part of their aftercare kits. Using regular soap or makeup remover can weaken the bond between the extensions and natural lashes, leading to premature shedding. Lash shampoo is designed to gently remove dirt, oil, and makeup residue from the lashes without compromising their integrity.
