A Day in the Life of a Lash Stylist at The Lash Lounge
The energy at a lash salon is lively AND uplifting, and why wouldn’t it be?! Guests are leaving feeling as beautiful and confident as ever with fresh lashes and brows. That energy comes in thanks to professional lash techs! In fact, it’s their expert ability to help every guest feel comfortable from the moment they step into the salon to the moment they leave feeling gorgeous. This is just what happens at The Lash Lounge! 💜
Take a glimpse into a lash tech’s typical day at work and learn what it takes to be a stylist in the industry, including at our salons.
Walk Through a Day in the Life of a Lash Tech
A lash stylist’s day typically involves prep, appointments and exceptional customer service.
We can’t speak for other lash salons but when entering one of our salons, our lash techs begin preparations for their guests (after catching up with fellow techs, of course 👋🏽). Prep includes:
- reviewing the current guest’s lash plan
- checking booking info for new guests
- prepping extensions
- finding the perfect shade for lash and brow tinting
- making sure all tools and supplies are sanitized and ready to go for whatever the service may call for.
Lash techs prepare to ensure the appointment is efficient and focused from consultations to lash aftercare education, The cleanliness and comfort of their guest is also a top priority during every guest visit.
Appointment time at a lash salon is when the magic happens! Stylists meet and work with guests to find creative ways to customize lash and brow looks. Techs get to build rapport with new guests and catch up with existing guests they’ve worked with for months and even years! Each appointment with an existing guest can be different and can entail anything from lash fill or customizing any one of our lash and brow services. For new guests, a lash tech will always start with a consultation. During the consultation, the stylist will share the customizable options with their guest and help them determine which lash or brow look is best for them, their eye shape, natural lashes or brows, skin tone AND lifestyle.
That First-Look Moment:
When the custom service is complete, it’s time for the stylist to unveil their guest’s stylish new lashes and brows! During this time, the lash stylist will hand over a mirror so the guest can get an up-close and personal gaze at their NEW look! Also during this time, the lash tech will prepare the guests’ personal lash plan, educate them on aftercare and walk them to our retail area to show them which products are a must in between salon visits. Lash stylists want their guests to leave each appointment comfortable and confident with their new look and aftercare process!
