Doing other lash artist's work....Do you do it? Or not?
When a new client books for a fill I instantly think, "Do they know what they are booking for? Or are they coming from another lash artist and need a fill? Oh great... what was their other lash artist like?"
A few months ago, I would have said "Yes, I will take on other lash artist's work." I was excited to educate the client and help them on their lash journey. Extensions can be amazing. Everyone should get to experience a life of having great lashes. That experience of education, understanding how lashes work, and having great lashes, is what I pride myself on providing for my lash clients. Until....
Just recently I had a few new clients that were from other lash artists. I went through my paper work and education pieces with them, just like I would any new client. But for these clients, I have to explain that I have no idea what the previous lash artist taught them. Was the info Correct? Or were they never educated at all? I never want to assume. Education is powerful.
Embarking on these client's lashes was horrific. I have had botched lashes before, that I was able to help. When you save a lash friend, your heart is empowered! I always feel inspired to save the world (Plus, I want to change the bad rep our lash industry currently holds). But sometimes lashes are beyond repair. You have to have the client go to lash rehab.

As a lash artist, what is your policy? Do you take on the challenge? The down fall of taking on another lash artist's work is:
So many questions to think about. Moving forward I now have a policy for taking on other lash artists. Figuring out the steps and process I wanted to take had me thinking of so many questions. It makes me curious do you have a policy? I want to hear from you.
