Yes! You absolutely can build a career doing what you love and get paid top dollar by clients who line up for months in advance just to work with you.
This is the dream of nearly everybody who goes into the beauty industry...
Most people who get into the industry start as customers! My acneic skin led me to a spa getting chemical peels when I was 18, and when my skin cleared up with the aid of an esthetician, I knew that I wanted to give that feeling of confidence to others.
Making someone look and feel beautiful inside and out literally changes lives. I know it did for me. It changed the trajectory of my career (I was on my way to Law School) and it has for dozens of women I’ve helped. It's why our field exists IMO. The beauty industry — lash artistry in particular — is an incredible field in which to build your career. For many people, it is a life-changing pivot that can pay just as much as a professional job with an advanced degree.
But becoming a lash artist is not just about making others look pretty.
Lash extension products and services are one of the fastest growing segments in the beauty industry by a landslide. And it's not even close. If you want to tap into this lucrative field, now is the right time.
But...you need the right information to get started!
Here are 3 secrets Master Lash Artists know that can change your life and career forever.
Secret #1: The Lash Industry Is Recession Proof!
We are going into a worldwide recession post-Covid. For many businesses, this has meant a pullback in sales as customers reevaluate their purchase decisions. Average consumers are more cost-conscious than ever as they react to the doom and gloom of the media. Grocery bills and gas tanks are causing some of us to have mild panic attacks. The world goes in cycles.
But one thing is for sure...
Luxury businesses will remain on top and even thrive during economic downturns. And there's a counterintuitive reason for this rooted in human psychology.
Love them or hate them, high-end brands like Louis and Gucci will not be affected by the recession.
By becoming a lash artist, you are not just joining the beauty industry, you are joining the luxury industry. The luxury industry attracts a clientele who is not concerned with how much things cost.
Instead, they are concerned with maintaining a lifestyle that makes them feel good. Investing in themselves is their best investment! This is why high-end products and services actually do well in recessions. People who have high-paying careers typically continue to maintain their standards and quality of life, and do not want to downgrade based on what's happening in the world. If anything, a recession encourages people who have money to spend even more!
I mean, let's get real: once you've gotten used to maintaining a certain look and it becomes part of your identity, are you really going to want to change?
But don't believe me...just look at the growth of the lash industry over the last 5 years:
The lash extension industry has grown into a $1.5B industry through the recession with no signs of slowing — and it is on track to be at $2B over the next 3-5 years. That's because people want to look and feel good, no matter what's happening in the world. And they're willing to pay top dollar for it!
When you enter the industry as a lash artist, you get to claim your piece of the billion dollar pie — and it's oh-so-sweet!
Secret #2: The Lash Industry Isn't Just About Beauty!
Giving a great set of lashes will make your clients look beautiful — but that's just the beginning. Master Lash Artists know that their work is much more than skin deep!
We become confidants, secret-keepers and trusted friends. When you become a lash artist, you get to offer a safe space for clients to share, vent, connect and just be. This will have a profound impact on their lives and mental wellness (and yours too!). Who doesn't want a career that is meditative, rewarding and lucrative?
How you look affects how you feel at a deep level
The reason people change their outer appearance is because they want to shift how they feel about themselves on the inside. When you help somebody feel more beautiful, you're loving them. You're also helping them to love themselves more. Over time, you'll get to experience watching their confidence bloom from services that you provide! It is so fulfilling, purposeful, a great honor and pleasure to be such a positive force in others' lives. There's no better feeling!
As a lash artist, you'll be getting up close and personal with your clients on a regular basis. Their appointment with you be one of the only opportunities for them to rest, relax and practice self-care in a week packed full of responsibilities and commitments. This is especially true when serving high-paying clientele who tend to live high-stress lives. After working with your clients for months or years, you'll get to know a lot about their hopes, dreams, fears and desires for the future. I hold more juicy secrets than I can count. Now more than ever, we need this private, social connection. This sacred space is worth its weight in gold.
Lash artists are energy healers
Believe it or not, lash artists are actually energetic healers! We constantly work in a region of the body called the crown chakra, which is connected to the mind and the spirit.
As a lash artist, you will be one of the few people in the lives of your clients to touch them for an extended period of time on their face, head, neck and scalp. These areas of the body hold tension, anxiety and stress. They are extremely sensitive to the energy of a loving touch. It makes me so happy when my clients fall asleep knowing that they feel comfortable being vulnerable with me. If you've ever gotten a facial massage, you know exactly what I'm talking about. The relief is palpable!
Doing this type of work with clients will give them something they are not getting anywhere else: beauty rest, permission to destress and put their phone away, and a caring professional whose presence they enjoy and look forward to (who happens to be badass at lashing!).
Secret #3: You Can Easily Make Over $100,000 Your First Year As A Lash Artist Working Part-Time!
Master Lash Artists know that with the proper information and training, a career in the lash industry can easily create a six-figure career working just part-time (as little as 12 hours per week). This is because the demand for skilled artists is high and your clients will need consistent maintenance.
This is life-changing for the well-trained lash artist! I know it sounds too good to be true, so I did some math for you. Here's the breakdown:
Your earning potential as a lash artist is tremendous!
After you've received proper training and guidance, you can easily charge up to $350 for a full set of lashes. This is industry standard for a Master Lash Artist and your clients will happily invest in themselves. Each appointment lasts an average of 2 hours, so you'll average about $175/hour once you are fully trained.
Not to be rude, but this is more than most professionals with a Masters Degree make. I'm just saying...
Here's what that looks like on an annual basis:
Working 12/hrs per week = $100,800/year
Working 15/hrs per week = $126,000/year
Working 20/hrs per week = $168,000/year
Working 25/hrs per week = $210,000/year
Working 30/hrs per week = $252,000/year
Obviously it will take time to work up to these numbers as your skill improves and you attract increasingly affluent clientele — but the pathway is clear and the opportunity is yours for the taking! Along with a wealthy bank account, you'll get to set your own schedule and be your own boss so you can start living the life you've dreamed of! I've done this for over a decade in my own business, and I've trained many lash artists the Charm Lash techniques that have allowed them to go out and do the same.
Now, it's your turn!

Do I need to have prior experience to take the workshop?
No experience is necessary to take this class. If you have never lashed before or if you have taken a lash course but still feel like you are missing a lot of information, do not feel confident lashing or are having a hard time with the method, tools and techniques that you were taught initially, this class is for you!

Will I need a model?
Yes. You will need a model on both the 1st and 2nd days of the class. The 1st day (Sunday) AND 2nd day (Monday) have your model committed to 1:30pm-4:30pm. It is STRONGLY recommended that you have a backup model as we will not be able to provide one and it is REQUIRED to take the class. I do not use mannequin heads because let's be real - lashing on a human is entirely different and you should learn right the first time.

Projected Return on Investment
It goes without saying, but I'll say it here: your return is entirely dependent on your ability to learn the curriculum and do the work. It wouldn't be honest or wise for me to guarantee a return because that's not how business works.

The system works, if you work it!
These are my recommendations for launching your lash career after getting certified with Charm Lash Academy. With only working 20hrs/week, your first month, you can make up to $9,000. If you can lash more often, you will make your investment back even quicker!

I want to make sure you are successful. You will also have lifetime access to Charm Lash Academy’s private Facebook group where I will be available LIVE for Q&A sessions, where you will also have a community of lash artists supporting you.
