Brow Lamination

Bushy brows are back. Thanks to the Kardashian’s influence and rise in the off-duty model look, thick and dark brows are the new norm. But what do you do if you’re not naturally blessed with fluffy brows? Brow lamination, of course!

 

This popular new treatment has taken the beauty world by storm, and can transform even the thinnest of brows into gorgeous face framers. Here’s how it works: 

 

So, brow lamination basically works by lifting the brows and setting the hairs in place for up to 6 weeks. That way, you can achieve a thickness you never knew you had. And that’s not the only benefit you can promote to your clients – it’s pain free too. Unlike HD brows and microblading, this treatment won’t leave you squirming in your seat as it works with the natural hairs.

 

It’s also a pretty simple process to learn. A cream is applied to the brows so you can move and brush the hairs upwards. Once they’re brushed in place, you set the brows with a separate cream and tint to add more definition. Finish up the process with a little tidying around the brows and voila! You’re all set with a new pair of luscious brows. 

 

Brow lamination is a lucrative addition to your skill set, as you can charge anywhere upwards of £45 for the 30 minute treatment. So, it’s definitely one to consider. 

 

Lash Extensions

Now lash extensions aren’t a new trend, but they definitely deserve a special mention. From classic sets to eye-catching russians, there are many styles your clients can choose – so it’s important you get to grips with a wide variety. 

 

But what are lash extensions? Well, they work in the same way as hair extensions. The lashes can be made from materials such as human hair, mink, synthetic or silk – each coming with different lengths and price points. So, it’s up to you which type you offer depending on how much you want to charge. 

 

Application can be a little trickier than other treatments and certainly requires a steady hand. Applying a full set of lashes can take up to two hours, depending on the client’s desired thickness. Each lash is applied individually using glue and tweezers as close to the natural lashes as possible. It’s all about precision to make sure the set is durable and even. 

 

Beauticians usually charge £50 or more for a full set of lash extensions, plus you can offer maintenance every 3 to 4 weeks to keep the lashes topped up.

 

Non-Surgical Treatments

Non-surgical treatments, otherwise known as aesthetics, are less invasive procedures that change the natural features of the face. They’re used to treat a whole range of ‘problems’ that clients may have, from excessive sweating to reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

 

They’ve become a popular choice as they’re more affordable and require less commitment than going under the knife, as results are usually temporary and require top ups. For example, non-surgical rhinoplasties have surged in popularity recently as everyone desires the cute button nose they see on Instagram. So for a much smaller price tag and zero recovery time, people are jumping at the opportunity to achieve their dream nose with dermal fillers.

 

Remember, most aestheticians are medically trained and should always carry out a full medical assessment on each client before treatment. However, once you become qualified, aesthetics can be extremely lucrative procedures. Depending on the treatment, you can begin charging at £150 plus.

Facials 

On the flipside of aesthetics, people are now also looking for ways to work with what they’ve naturally got. And that’s where facials come in. In recent years, a number of different facials have come to market all claiming to deliver the key to youth and radiance. 

 

If we’re going back to basics, facials aim to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin through cleansing, exfoliation and massage. A good facial will leave the skin looking youthful and feeling soft and supple. 

 

There are many types of facials originating from all corners of the world that you can learn and perform on your clients. As technology has developed, some beauticians have started introducing LED lights and lasers into their facials which claim to rejuvenate the skin and reinstate a healthy glow.

Other facials combine physical treatments with mindfulness and meditation to heal and rejuvenate the body from the inside outwards.
