Many lash artists that are just starting out are weighing the options of renting out space for their business. There is a lot of consideration when it comes to renting a chair at a salon or even starting up your own salon. Whether negotiating a lease with your landlord or renting a new space, many people are interested in learning whether or not they can do eyelashes out of their homes.
Doing eyelashes of your home can be a great way that you can avoid some of these issues, but any lash artist needs to have proper certification as a trained cosmetologist or aesthetician. A license is required to apply for eyelash extensions; it often helps to have a specialty space to ensure that you are satisfying all regulations for practice in the lash industry.
Any business for lash extensions needs to be accessible and this means working in a salon that is properly regulated most of the time. Outfitting your own home with the requirements to make it accessible could be difficult. You’ll also need to have a private bathroom, a proper station for sanitizing, private entrance and more.
These are all items that can improve client comfort as well as improve the legitimacy of your business. Working out of your home could also mean that you have your pets or your kids running around which can disrupt your client’s enjoyment of the experience.
One of the other arguments for applying for eyelash extensions outside of the home is that a salon often has better conditions. Lash glue requires optimal conditions in order to appropriately dry. The conditions in a salon are often highly regulated for the other products that are being applied in treatments. A lash extension treatment in a salon is a much more controlled environment and safe for clients.
While it might be possible for you to do eyelashes in your house you need to make sure that you are appropriately certified and that you take every step possible to make sure that the location suits the local requirements for eyelash extension work. It can often be far easier to simply rent out space or a chair to start your business.
