We're absolutely thrilled to be getting back to lashing, and with April 12th just around the corner, there's a lot of excitement in the air! Lash techs, we know you've got a bunch of planning and preparation ahead, and we're here to support you every step of the way.
Our top priority is making sure you can create a super safe and welcoming environment for both you and your clients. We totally get that maintaining cleanliness and sterilising equipment might seem a bit time-consuming initially, but trust us, once you've got things organised, it becomes easier. Here are some friendly tips to make your return to work smoother:
KEEPING YOUR SALON COVID-SAFE
Declutter your salon and workspace: A little spring cleaning never hurt anyone! Clearing out unnecessary items in your salon makes for a more efficient and easier-to-clean space.
Create a cleaning checklist: Stay on top of your cleaning game by having a checklist to guide you throughout the day. It's a simple way to make sure everything stays squeaky clean, sanitised and sterilised.
Sterilise your tools: Keep those essential tools like tweezers, scissors, brushes and other lash essentials in top-notch condition by regularly sterilising them. Consider using an LED steriliser device like the 59S Sterilising Wand for a quick and effective solution. It is certified to eliminate 99/9% of bacteria in just 3 minutes.
ORGANISATION IS KEY
Efficiency is the name of the game for lash techs, and we're here to help you streamline your workflow:
Manage your schedule: Set specific work hours to avoid any overbooking stress. Clearly communicate guidelines to your clients, and taking deposits for treatments can help manage potential lateness or missed appointments.
Time-saving tricks: Streamline the consultation process by having clients complete electronic forms before their appointments. It's a fantastic way to save time and prevent any unnecessary delays.
BE KIND TO YOURSELF
We know coming back after a break can be a bit overwhelming, so remember to take it easy on yourself:
1. Prioritise self-care: Returning to the salon is exciting, but it's crucial to prioritize your well-being. If you're feeling a bit anxious, that's totally normal. Take the time to adjust to the "new normal" without putting too much pressure on yourself.
2. Establish work/life balance: Now's the perfect time to find that sweet spot between work and personal life. Balance is key!
3. We're here for you: If you ever need support or have questions, our Customer Services team and the Eyelash Emporium educators are just a message away. We've got your back!
Here's to a fantastic return to lashing - you've got this!
