Lash Artist Consults 101 - 5 of Our Favorite Questions
If you’re a brand new lash artist, it won’t take you long to realize that every client is so different. They have different lifestyles, different personal preferences, the list goes on. As a lash artist, it’s so important to ensure you are both on the same page. That’s where consults come in. Keep on reading to learn more about our favorite consult questions and why we love them!
Why do you want eyelash extensions?
This question will give you a clear understanding of the client’s goals and expectations. Maybe they want their lashes to look great for their wedding. Or maybe they’ve heard good things about lashes and want to give it a go.
Whatever their answer may be, it’s important to listen carefully to ensure you are both on the same page.
Have you had eyelash extensions in the past? If so, how was your experience?
If they had a bad experience in the past, you’re going to want to know why.
They could have had an allergic reaction, poor retention, or just were unhappy with the quality.
On another note, if they have never had lash extensions before, you will have to go the extra mile to explain how they work and what they can expect.
Someone who has never had lash extensions likely wouldn’t know how to care for them. Education is key!
Describe your dream lashes in one word.
Sometimes clients know they want lash extensions but don’t know what style to go with. Asking them the right questions can help you give the best recommendation.
Do you sleep on your side, back, or stomach?
As we stated earlier, someone who has never had lash extensions may not know that sleeping on their stomach can negatively impact lash retention.
We all have our own sleeping routine. If the client is against sleeping on their side or back, it’s important they understand and accept that it may impact their lashes.
Do you have any allergies or sensitivities?
The last thing you or the client wants is an allergic reaction to any of the supplies. Nothing is more important than safety! If they don’t have any allergies or sensitivities, you should be good to go. But if they do, you may have to alter the game plan.
