It really is amazing how far we’ve come in just a few years. No, we’re not talking about world peace or solving the food crises, though we do hope they make breakthroughs on both soon… very soon. We’re talking about beauty and how it’s easier than ever for women to post a selfie early in the morning looking as they do. We’re busy being super moms, working full-time and also trying to stay sane. Today women have less time than ever to apply a full and flawless face of make-up. No matter how many YouTube tutorials we watch, applying false lashes still requires a supernatural skill that only few have mastered and some maybe never will. The alternative? Eyelash extensions.
Full sultry lashes is a beauty holy grail, right up there with Cara Delevigne brows and an Angelina Jolie pout. Luckily Eyelash Extensions are one of the least invasive procedures compared to microblading and injectables. If done right, many women could fall asleep during application. Good lash artists know that technique is everything and applying lashes the right way will contour the eyes and face which in turn give clients’ unparalleled confidence. That wake up selfie looks immediately different. If our clients are happy, they return to us and even more importantly they share their lash specialists’ details, of that you can be sure.
According to Beauty Therapy Institute (BTI) Bloemfontein Principal Alida Fourie, many beauty salons now only offer Lash Extensions which is an ever-growing market for therapists that specialise in this ‘procedure’. These salons or lash bars as they are fondly referred to, don’t require a much space or instruments, as opposed to a nail or facial salon. A research company predicts that enjoyable salon services will continue to be a growing trend for the beauty industry. 52% of women surveyed will visit a salon for Eyelash Extensions or Tinting every four to six weeks, even during a recession. This means therapists can make a profitable living doing Lash Extensions alone. Today they have the added benefit of social media which has made it easier than ever for skilled therapists to market their artistry. Alida believes that the need to upskill yourself today is essential and to take advantage of the opportunities available in this industry.
