Boise Hair Salon – Why Membership is Better for Eyelash Extensions
In addition to our hair services, Tease Boise Hair Salon specializes in eyelash extensions. We had so many clients wanting to get an appointment, that we knew we were on to something! This is a service that we perform over and over again each day, and, wow, we have sure seen it all! We have helped to rehabilitate many people’s lashes that were damaged, educate clients on how to properly care for their eyelash extensions, and help clients understand the shedding and replacement process involved with wearing eyelash extensions. There were so many eyelash extensions disasters (from other establishments) coming through our doors that we had to figure out a way to educate our clients and help them establish a regular maintenance routine with their lashes.
Ever since we implemented our eyelash extension membership fill program, it has made a huge difference in our relationship with our clients. Gone are the days where clients expect their lashes to last a month! These expectations from clients arose out of poor eyelash extension work. How did that happen? This happened when another lash tech performed the service for that client and glued adjacent lashes to each other. When lashes are stuck together, they will last longer because they can not properly shed. Over the long term, this will cause damage to the natural eyelashes.
Sometimes, a person’s eyelashes can all be in the same growing phase and remain in place for longer than our 18 day fill cycle within our membership. Many people have called and asked why do they need a fill when their eyelashes look fine. What clients can’t see is that the natural lashes are still growing with the attached extension. Once that natural lash grows out too far, the eyelash extension is going to twist or sag into the field of vision. Our Boise Hair Salon eyelash extension in-fills include removal of grown out extensions to help the set stay fresh.
We also perform a very detailed intake for eyelash extensions and make sure client expectations are properly set. Many clients want lashes that are too long for their natural lashes. We always hear about how another Boise hair salon has provided a certain length for the client after we tell clients it’s not in their best interests to go longer. Sometimes, we are not able to give the client what they want while maintaining our quality lashes. We are always up front and honest with clients about the limitations created by their natural anatomy and what we are willing to do and not do. Clients, of course, have the option to refuse service if the consultation does not result in a promise of what they want. However, for the most part, clients appreciate the education and attention to health and well-being of their natural lashes. Our membership program provides discounted fill prices for dedicated clients. Our regular fill prices are a bit higher, and this has helped because we are seeing fewer and fewer lash disasters walk through our doors. It’s never easy to tell a patron that their lashes are too jumbled up and glued together to properly in-fill. This was leading to many frustrated interactions, however, our membership program has solved these issues.
