Eyelash Extensions or False Eyelashes, Which Would You Choose?
An age-long debate, and a true battle of the rivals. When you are trying to entice potential clients to get eyelash extensions or any sort of lash treatment, even a lash lift, how can you possibly convince them? There are so many options out there, but we still believe eyelash extensions are the best one. We’ll tell you why…
We have to admit, we are slightly biased when it comes to this topic. We love strip lashes no more than the next person, but eyelash extensions are elite (especially ours, not to brag). To put it simply, strip lashes are a one-night thing. They can be bought from most drugstores, and they don’t have to be applied by a professional. Although this may sound like a dream come true, you probably know that dreaded feeling of panic when your lashes won’t stick, or when the inner and outer corners are popping off - and don’t get me started on how uneven they can look if not applied evenly. Save yourself the stress! The solution: get eyelash extensions.
Are Eyelash Extensions Better?
We’ve heard it all before, trust us. People always ask whether or not eyelash extensions are better than false lashes. We get it, for a first-timer getting lash extensions may feel like a scary concept, or you may have heard all of the vicious (and untrue we must add) rumors about them. No, they do not ruin your natural lashes, and no you won’t get eyelash mites (unless you don’t wash them of course). Educate your clients on why these things may happen, for example, if they don’t cleanse or take care of their lash extensions. Education is key!
Not only must you showcase your fabulous lash portfolio to potential clients, but you must also convince people that eyelash extensions are the best option. A luxury treatment that will change your clients’ life, why is there even a debate?!
Why Should I Get Eyelash Extensions?
You will hear “I just wear strip lashes”, or “I only want lashes for one night” but on the other hand you hear “I can’t apply false lashes” and “My falsies are ALWAYS falling off”. Tell your clients to skip the drama, it’s not worth it, seriously.
There are many reasons why eyelash extensions are the crème de la crème of beauty treatments, here are just a few:
- Low Maintenance
Picture this, you wake up in the morning and realize that you don’t even need to wear eye makeup like you might usually do - this is how your clients will feel! Straight up and out of the door, it’s as easy as that. The only maintenance that your clients will need is to cleanse their lashes regularly of any dirt or makeup. We recommend our foaming lash shampoo and lash cleansing brush, this duo works like a dream.
- Made To Fit
Unlike strip lashes, eyelash extensions are created to fit the natural eye shape. The lengths, style, and curls are bespoke to the clients features and their desired result. If your client wants a classic lash set, hybrid lashes, or mega volume lashes, they can be created to perfectly suit them individually.
- Skip The Mascara
If your client opts for lash extensions there will be no need for mascara or false lashes. Tell your clients to ditch the mascara, there’s no way they’ll need it! The only thing they'll need is a great aftercare routine to keep their lashes looking fresh and fluffy.
- Look Great, All Of The Time!
Imagine the day after your client's treatment, they look in the mirror and say to themselves “Wow, I already look flawless”. We’re not saying your clients aren’t already absolutely beautiful, but eyelash extensions will simply enhance their natural beauty. Just been to the gym? Been on a chaotic school run? Been to work? This doesn’t matter! You will still look stunning, no matter what. When everything else is falling apart, your lashes will keep you looking snatched.
- Perfect For Special Occasions
Although your clients could wear strip eyelashes on a special occasion, there is minimal risk of mishaps with eyelash extensions. Your client will no longer have to bring eyelash glue out wherever they go! Brown, black, or colored eyelash extensions are perfect for special occasions when your client really wants to amp up their look. From weddings to parties, christenings, and festivals - there's no place where eyelash extensions are not an appropriate choice.
- Confidence levels = To The Max!
Take your clients' confidence to the next level by highlighting their natural features with eyelash extensions. Not only will your clients be super happy with their lashes, but they also will feel super confident too!
Hopefully, we’ve opened your eyes to why eyelash extensions are unbeatable! Lash treatments are our number one love, no exaggeration. Now you can tell your clients all the reasons why they are the BEST too! Goodbye falsies, make way for stunning lash extensions.
