How to Choose a Lash Artist

Are you thinking about getting eyelash extensions but not sure where to start? I'm here to help! I've created a list of things to research and consider before choosing your lash artist!

  • Are they licensed? Every technician that is applying eyelash extensions is required to have a board certified license either in cosmetology or in esthetics. Certain states may have different rules. Check your state for clarification.  

  • How long have they been doing lashes? There is a big difference between 2 months of lashing and 3 years of lashing. 

  • Check their pictures to see their work. Make sure they're using real photos of their work and not stock photos. 

  • Stay away from cheap deals. I know a low price may be intriguing but cheap deals can almost guarantee cheap work. Ex: "Purchase a full set of eyelash extensions for $40" deal bought through a discount coupon website.  

  • Do they have a good reputation? Ask around. What are other people in your area saying about them?

  • Remember that these are your EYES and this decision should be taken very seriously. If people aren't saying good things about them or their work...RUN!
