Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent synthetic lashes that are individually glued on top of your natural lashes. Eyelash extensions are great if you wish to save time in the morning. They give you a seamless “no makeup look” the moment you wake up. You don’t have to wake up 15 minutes early to curl your lashes and apply mascara, or fake lashes. You also save time at the end of the day because you don’t need to remove mascara or fake lashes. However, eyelash extensions are pricey and high maintenance.
Prior to your eyelash extension appointment, you should do research. Make sure that your lash artist is certified and has a website or social media page about their business. Usually, the price of your eyelash extensions reflects the quality of them and your lash tech. However, this does not mean you should step out of your budget range. You can find certified lash artists that offer services at lower prices for just as good of quality! Just remember, you get what you pay for.
If you are a certified lash artist, or you’re looking into becoming one, there are several things to consider before opening up your own business. There is always a risk that something could go wrong and especially businesses that provide beauty services, the risk is increased. Did you know that it is illegal to run a business without insurance in Canada? We will mention the types of insurance you need to consider for your eyelash extension business below.
General liability insurance
General liability insurance covers you if someone claims compensation from you, as well as covering any compensation like associated costs and expenses.
Products liability insurance
Products liability insurance covers claims about defects in any of the products you have sold or supplied. This is usually bought with general liability insurance.
For example, if a client files a claim related to an eyelash cleanser that you sell because they received a rash near the eye, product liability insurance will come in handy.
Professional liability insurance
Professional liability insurance is a legal requirement that covers claims made due to negligence that are against you.
For example, if a client might sue you because they have received an allergic reaction from the lash glue you use, professional liability insurance will help cover this.
Property insurance covers your business property against accidental damage or losses caused by theft.
For instance, if your business suffers from any loss due to someone breaking in, property insurance will come in handy.
