We got a little visit from the Salt Lake City Fire Department on Monday. Another business in our building left a candle going over the weekend and it set off the sprinklers in their suite. I don't mind having firefighters hard at work near by...

All new clients and first time appointments must be made online. a 50% cost of service deposit must be paid to book an appointment. This deposit will be taken off at check out post-service but will not be refunded for late cancellation or no shows.

Every Summer the Salt Lake City Arts Council puts together the Summer Twilight Concert Series at Pioneer Park directly across the street from Salt City Lashes. The good news is, if you plan on going, you can park in our lot and get your lashes done just before and get free prime parking! the bad news is, due to crowds, Salt City Lashes will not be offering services during Thursday evenings.
Last week I was able to offer an experienced Lash Artist some advanced training in lash extensions. It was a great experience for both of us. This particular lash artist has been doing lash extensions from her home for several months. She has been unable to complete a full set of lashes in less than 4 hours or a fill in less than 2. This is a major hinderance to her business.
When I found out about her problem I strongly suggested she take some advanced training from me. We went over the basic Do's and Don'ts of lash services. It turned out that she was making SEVERAL rookie mistakes that were eating up precious service time.
After only 2 ours of direct 1 on 1 training she learned a handful of invaluable skills and techniques that should easily help her cut her service time in half making it possible for her to take twice as many lash clients! Not only that, but with shorter service times and happier clients she will likely tap into those valuable referrals and repeat clients.
I LOVE TRAINING!

It seems that everywhere you look online there are businesses offering what they call the best lash extension training course... Well how do you know which to pick?
Here are a few red flags to look for in unprofessional training/certification courses:
1- They do not require licensure prior to training as required by their state laws. Here in the State of Utah it is required to have an active cosmetology or esthetics license in order to do lash extensions for compensation.
2- They offer a training DVD if you buy their kit. There is absolutely NO way that you can learn how to properly and safely apply lash extension by watching a DVD. This company is out to make money on you and does not care if you injure your client or put your license and name sake at risk.
3- Training takes place at un undisclosed or TBD location. You could very well be training in someone's messy living room or a dingy hotel conference room. Ensure that your training set up is sanitary and professional.
4- The trainer is not named. You could very well be trained by someone who has little to no experience doing lashes at all... THIS happened to me. I found out after the fact that my trainer was no licensed, and has only been doing lashes out of her own basement for a year...
5- They don't teach proper removal or they have you work on a mannequin. Learning proper removal is vital to any successful lash business. It is often removal that causes the most injury. Do not sign up for a training that does not teach this. (I did and had to learn it after the fact on the job) You also cannot possibly learn all the necessary skills you need working on a mannequin. You need a real model to learn about proper isolation, position, style, posture, etc.
The best lash extension courses will teach you all the aspects of lash extensions without the fluff. You can't just look at the time spent training, you have to consider the quality of the education. Consider class size, location, professionalism, quality of products used, experience of the trainer, continued support offered, etc.
If you have any other questions about the training that Salt City Lashes offers or if you are having trouble comparing our offerings to another company's we encourage you to contact us. We are glad to guide you through this process as it is a very important decision that could easily make or break your career.
I would like to start a series on this blog about the art of eyelash extensions. I have a background in art. I used to do drawing and painting before I had kids so I feel that I have an eye for shape, style and proportions. Look at this set of lashes, what do you see?
Clearly they are long, well placed and full. Kudos to the artist. Although... Here's what I see: There are no extensions at all on the inner 1/5th of the eyelid. That bothers me. I like to taper down and do as many lashes as I can so that the black long lash extensions don't just come to an immediate end.
What else do I notice? The lash extensions are so long that they almost touch the lower line of the eyebrow. You need to carefully examine the size and shape of your client's feature before determining what length would be appropriate.
At Salt City Lashes we do so much more than just glue individual eyelash extensions to your natural lashes. We create little works of art. We will help you find the perfect length, curl, and style to suit your style, features and personality.
