#14 A career as a lash artist

So you’re here because you’re thinking about a career as a Lash Artist. For many, lashing has become like second nature. They are very passionate about their job and love to make others feel and look great! It can certainly be a very rewarding and empowering career choice. Especially if you have a creative flare, love being around people and want to create some serious lash magic! 

Whether you are looking to become an independent lash artist (be it working from home or owning your own business) or an employee, the option to choose is there! Like most careers, there are pros & cons to having your own business vs working for someone else. 

Owning your own business gives you greater flexibility. However you need to keep in mind that there are set up costs, business registration (where applicable), insurance and other costs to consider. If you plan it all out and put in the hard work… it can mostly definitely be done and you can be very successful. 

Working for someone else does not give you the same flexibility. You will most likely be required to work late Thursday, Fridays and over the weekends. But then there are no start up fees or business legalities you have to worry about. Just show up, do a good job and get paid! Plus you will receive all employee benefits (sick days, annual leave, etc). 

You just need to figure out the path you want to take and make that first step! 

Research, good training and education is absolute key to success. PLUS a lot of eyelash application practise, practise, practise!
