Why become a lash technician?

The demand for all kinds of beauty services has increased and looks set to continue to grow at a steady rate. As our lives are played out more frequently on camera, due to social media and the rise of video calls at work, more of us want to ensure we look good and ready for our public. 

With this, the industry demand for personal grooming and beauty services has grown. When clients look their best, they feel their best. And if they feel their best, they show up confidently and empowered. 

If you’d like to help make clients look and feel their best, and have an innate passion for all things beauty related, a career as a lash technician could be for you.

Benefits of being a certified lash technician

Eyelash technicians can make a generous wage, which increases with the hours you work and any lash tech courses you complete. As a freelancer you can decide your own hours and how much or little you’d like to work too, which offers great flexibility as a career. You can also choose to set up your own at-home or mobile salon, or alternatively you can apply to work in a salon too.  

Equally, a certification shows potential employers and clients your dedication to learning the craft of applying eyelashes correctly. They can be confident in your ability, as with your certification you’ll have gained an in-depth knowledge about lash grooming, learning from experienced tutors whilst honing your craft. 

If you enjoy meeting new people and helping to transform their look with runway ready lashes, helping to boost their self-esteem, confidence and adding a strut to their step, then the benefits of becoming a certified lash technician speak for themselves.

What does a lash technician do?

The task of a lash technician is advising their clients when choosing their lashes, helping them to decide whether mink, silk or synthetic will be best for the look they want to achieve. They’ll  also advise on the desired lash length and volume, taking into account the client’s natural eyelashes, and consult on tint and lift options. 

They’ll then apply the lashes, keep the application area clean and sanitised, and put the client at ease while the application is occurring. A lash technician will also be expected to guide their client on aftercare practises and removal options. 

A lash technician also covers some basic admin tasks like taking bookings where required, as well as dealing with customer queries and complaints if they occur. Having a confident, warm and friendly manner, as well as technical skill, is a huge asset in this role!
