Necessary Equipment You Need as a Lash Artist

Necessary Equipment You Need as a Lash Artist

In this episode, we’re providing you insider info on setting up your lash studio environment. We’ll tell you about some of the mistakes we made early on in our careers so that you don’t make the same ones. From blowing your budget furnishing your entire salon to skimping on your client's bed, forgetting about how well your adhesive works when you don’t monitor your environment, and making sure your client is completely comfortable (no matter how they prefer their environment) with heat, blankets, air-conditioning, etc. We’re going to discuss every tiny detail so you stay on track with your budget, retain clients, and control your environment so it doesn’t control you.

The Untamed podcast is hosted by Cheryl Peng, Founder of Untamed Artistry, and AnneMarie Lorenzini, Managing Director of Untamed Artistry. Untamed Artistry provides professional lash artists with helpful knowledge and amazing eyelash extension products (hand-tested in our lash nerd lab). We want to make you successful by giving you high-quality products and showing you what you need to use them well. Find great products and all the education you could ever want (with a healthy dose of quirk) at www.untamedartistry.com
