If your lash or brow service doesn’t start with a consultation, please turn back immediately! It is an absolute warning sign that they are not doing it right. And you’ll likely walk away unsatisfied with your results, or worse, end up with a lash or brow disaster.
A sit-down consultation is, we’d say, the most essential part of a lash and brow service. It’s a brilliant way to ensure a smooth appointment for you, plus other advantages!
So, in this article, let’s go through the benefits of having a lash and brow consultation before a service.
It is probably the most exciting part—telling us the look you want! A one-on-one brow and lash consultation is the perfect opportunity to convey your goals to your lash artist.
Do you want your lashes to look subtle and natural or bold and dramatic? Do you want to perfect your arches and boost your brows’ colours, too? Your answers will help the lash consultant brew a tailored lash and brow solution for you.
But it’s sometimes difficult to articulate your desired look, so feel free to bring photos or illustrations to communicate your request better.
Keep in mind, though, that this is one part of the consultation, and the suitable solution for you depends on other factors.
A brow and eyelash consultation also involves ruling out any contraindication for lash and brow treatments. So don’t be surprised when your lash consultant asks if you’re taking any prescription medications or have a medical condition.
Discussing your health history allows your lash artist to tailor a treatment that is safe for you. The last thing we want is any unintended reaction that could’ve been prevented by going through a few important questions.
In addition, it also allows the lash expert to take practical steps in setting expectations, treatment, and aftercare. For example, some medical conditions, such as eyelid dermatitis, may be a hurdle in lash retention. So, the lash consultant may tell you during your lash extensions consultation that more frequent infills will be required than is usually recommended.
Another benefit of going through a lash and brow consultation is customising a solution that fits your lifestyle. You may already have set your heart on a specific lash or brow look, but whether it’s the best depends on your lifestyle, too.
For example, if you’re a regular gym goer who is always active and on the go or a new mum who requires minimal upkeep, a lash lift may be suitable because it only needs redoing every six to eight weeks. But if you do have time and are happy to commit to regular infills every two to four weeks, then lash extensions are your best bet.
So whether you’re a busy person, mum, professional, or student, there is a treatment that fits your lifestyle.
To come up with the best lash and brow solution, your lash consultant must also look into your eye shape and natural lash and brow style.
The right lash style and brow shape that can frame and flatter your eyes depends on your eye shape. For example, round and straight-shaped brows tend to complement almond eyes best.
In the same way, during a lash extensions consultation, your lash expert will check your natural lashes’ health. It will determine the length, curl, and thickness of the lash extensions that will be safe to use. If you have short and brittle lashes, for example, we can’t apply longer extensions as that can damage your natural lashes.
It’s pretty obvious, but it can’t be overlooked. Your lash technician asks this simple yes-or-no question to know the style you’ve had previously and the changes you like and to avoid any lash and brow mishaps from your past treatment.
During your lash and brow consultation, your lash expert will also walk you through the steps of the procedure. It is to make sure you get comfortable and reassured throughout the process.
Your lash consultant will also discuss the aftercare routine you must stick to and all other dos and don’ts. Why it’s beneficial? Because it helps you understand what you’re going to commit to.
It is also the time to set realistic expectations about the achievable look for you based on your desired look, lifestyle, eye shape, etc.
Don’t worry. It’s not all lecture mode because it is also the perfect opportunity for you to ask all the questions you have.
Finally, the benefit that likely sums up why an eyebrow and eyelash consultation is crucial is to customising the best lash and brow solution for you.
The right lash and brow treatment is unique for everyone else. The treatment that works best for you is the one that’s specifically tailored to your goals, lifestyle, natural lashes & brows, and eye shape.
A lash consultation is undoubtedly the cornerstone of an exceptional lash and brow service. It’s an initial step in every lash and brow appointment where your lash consultant asks you questions about your desired look, medical history, lifestyle, etc., to tailor a solution that best suits you.
We can’t stress enough the importance of a lash and brow consultation before any procedure. It’s the key to a successful lash and brow treatment!
An effective consultation has many benefits, such as understanding your goals, knowing your medical history, and customising a treatment fit for your lifestyle.
In other words, it ensures you’ll walk away from the salon with confidence and a wide smile, satisfied with your lash and brow results.
