Summer is here, and as a lash tech, you may be wondering how the season can affect your clients' lashes. With the sun, heat, and humidity, there are a few things you need to keep in mind to help your clients maintain their lash extensions during the summer months.
First and foremost, make sure your clients are aware of the importance of proper aftercare during the summer. Sweat, oil, and water can weaken the bond between the lash extensions and natural lashes, leading to premature shedding. Encourage your clients to avoid excessive sweating, swimming, and touching their lashes to keep them looking their best.
Another thing to keep in mind is that some clients may experience more shedding during the summer due to changes in their hair growth cycle. This is completely normal, but it's important to let your clients know that they may need to come in for more frequent fills during this time.
When it comes to lash styles, natural and wispy lashes are perfect for the summer. They are light and airy, which makes them more comfortable to wear in the heat. Plus, they give a fresh and effortless look that is perfect for the season.
In addition to choosing the right lash style, consider offering lash tinting and lifting services for clients who want to enhance their natural lashes without the need for extensions. These services are perfect for the summer when clients may want to avoid the maintenance that comes with lash extensions.
Finally, don't forget to promote your summer lash services on social media. Use summery colours and images to attract attention and offer special deals and promotions to get clients excited about trying out your services.
In conclusion, summer can be a challenging time for lash extensions, but with proper aftercare and the right lash styles, your clients can enjoy beautiful lashes all season long. As a lash technician, it's your job to educate and guide your clients on how to maintain their lashes during the summer months. So, get ready to help your clients look and feel their best this summer!
