Choosing the right technician

Posted by Misencil Category: Blog

Shopping for an eyelash extension technician can be even more difficult than finding the perfect little black dress you won’t want to live without! Everybody has preconceived notions of what should be an eyelash extension application, but what is it really supposed to be? Do you know what makes a technician better than another?

We want to help you find the perfect fit! Here are a few things you should look at:

  1. Cleanliness and hygiene

Impeccable hygiene must be a top priority for your technician. This is often reflected in how tidy the salon and private room are maintained, and even how the technician presents herself. Tweezers must be disinfected before each use to eliminate risks of contamination, sheets must be changed, nails must be clean, etc.

  1. The glue

We’ve all heard about eyelash extension gone wrong, and most of the time, this is due to poor quality products. Don’t be afraid to ask the technician to see the products used BEFORE the application. More specifically, ask to see the glue and make sure it is a Misencil glue and not a cheap glue that hasn’t gone through necessary rigorous laboratory testing.

  1. Safety measures

The Misencil technique learned by our technicians insists on always protecting the eyes of the client with patches. Not only should the technician apply patches under the eyes, but also on the upper eyelids to ensure that your eyes remain closed at all times during the procedure. The technician should also always have an ophthalmic solution on hand.

  1. Choice of extensions

A good technician will take the time to ask you questions about your desired effect and will thoroughly analyze your natural lashes in order to choose the right eyelash extensions and to offer a specific application type that best suits you.

  1. Pricing

It’s quite simple, if it’s too cheap to be true, stay away from it! A technician who trusts in her skills will not be afraid to charge what her work is worth. Usually, prices for a full eyelash extension application range between $150 and $250 depending on the type chosen. After all, you get what you pay for, and you certainly wouldn’t want someone who’s not worth the price to play with your eyes.

  1. Aftercare instructions

These play a big role in how satisfied you will be of your new lashes. A serious technician will properly explain to you how to care for your extensions and will also be able to provide you with all the necessary care products.

  1. Certification

Basic, isn’t it? You want your technician to be trained by the best and make sure she uses Misencil products as well. Our dealer locator will show you our certified technicians by simply entering a postal code.

In the end, you must feel at ease with your technician and of course, not feel any discomfort during the application. If you have questions, don’t be afraid to ask her. A good communication really is the key to a healthy eyelash extension technician & client relationship!
