Things to be Grateful for as a Lash Technician | 10 Reasons Lash Techs Are Thankful This Thanksgiving
As Thanksgiving approaches, it's a wonderful time for everyone, including Lash Technicians, to reflect on the many things we have to be thankful for! Despite popular beliefs, the lash industry is not just solely focused on enhancing beauty; it's a realm filled with personal growth, creativity, and connections. Here are ten reasons why we believe being a Lash Tech is a blessing, and ways you can show your clients your gratitude - because where would we be without them?!
1. The Joy of Transforming Lives
Transforming lives may sound like a stretch, but every Lash Technician knows the joy that comes from a client's first look in the mirror at their gorgeous eyelash extensions. The instant boost of confidence and the smile that lights up their face is priceless! Their reactions really make it worthwhile, so this Thanksgiving, why not consider offering a special discount or package to your loyal clients as a token of appreciation?
2. A Community of Support
Here at London Lash, we pride ourselves on supporting Lash Techs and being part of the bigger picture - this is why we organize various annual parties and Lash Battle! Being a part of the Lash Tech community means you're never alone. Whether it's sharing lash education tips or discussing the latest trends, there's always support. To show your gratitude to your lash community this Thanksgiving, it could be a good idea to host or attend a webinar or workshop, sharing your knowledge and experiences.
3. Creative Fulfillment
Lash artistry is a form of creative expression. Although complex, each set of lash extensions is a unique work of art, tailored to each individual that walks through your salon doors. Who doesn’t love it when clients let us take creative control?! This Thanksgiving is a great day to celebrate your own creativity, and your clients who trust you with their precious lashes, by showcasing your most artistic and innovative designs on your social media platforms. Why not consider even running special offers on lash set styles you have been dying to create?
4. Lifelong Learning
As a Lash Tech, you know that the industry is always evolving - whether it be new techniques or products, the constant flow of change offers endless opportunities for learning and growth. We have to give a huge thanks to all of our London Lash trainers and to all of you who use and love our products! Without you all, we wouldn’t be where we are today, and we are continuously learning in order to improve as a brand and our products.
5. Flexible Work Schedule
Now, this is a perk! Many Lash Technicians enjoy the flexibility of setting their own schedules as you can essentially be your own boss. Whether you’re a working parent or your lifestyle just doesn’t work well with a 9 to 5 job, being a self-employed Lash Tech can be a dream. Of course it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to get to that point, but once you do, it’s totally worth it!
6. Building Meaningful Relationships
We always say that a Lash Tech is not merely just a beauty professional. You’re also a counselor, confidant, and friend - you don't just provide a service; you build relationships. You know better than anyone else that your clients will often share their life stories, hopes, and dreams with you. During this holiday, a nice way to acknowledge these relationships is by giving personalized thank-you notes or small gifts to your regular clients.
7. Financial Independence
Being a Lash Technician can be hard work, but it can also be a very lucrative career that offers financial independence and the ability to grow your own business. The fact that you have to rely on yourself to earn your wage can motivate you to strive to work harder. With Black Friday sales upon us, now is the perfect time to invest in your business, whether it be more courses to help you expand your treatment list, or just stocking up on the essentials, don’t miss out on this opportunity to get more for less!
8. Empowering Others
During our treatments, we empower our clients to not just look their best, but also feel their best. This empowerment is something to be truly thankful for, so if you work with other Lash Techs, why not extend this empowerment by offering a special 'Bring a Friend' discount to your clients? By supporting your fellow colleagues and encouraging your clients to share the experience with someone who has never tried lash extensions before, this will bring in new potential clients, whilst also increasing client retention.
9. Recognition and Achievement
Whether it's a glowing review, a competition win, or a referral, recognition for your hard work is always fulfilling. If you adore your job and your clients, you’re sure to get a flood of positive reassurance! This will not only help to motivate you on a daily basis, but also guide you in your future endeavors with the comforting knowledge that you’ll have a support network right behind you.
10. The Beauty of Self-Care
Finally, as a Lash Tech, you are a reminder of the importance of self-care. Even though you may be fully booked and stressed on the inside, you’re always so professional and cool as a cucumber on the outside, that your clients won’t even notice! Now, that’s a skill. During this particularly busy season, educate your clients on the importance of investing in self-care. There’s nothing worse than burn-out, and if your clients are experiencing that, then they know they can come to you for a pick-me-up.
Being a Lash Technician is about way more than just applying eyelash extensions; it's a career filled with gratitude, growth, and the power to make a difference. This Thanksgiving, take the time to reflect on these blessings and find unique ways to show your clients how much you appreciate them. Not only will this strengthen your relationships, but it will also help in maintaining a loyal client base and growing your business.
