Are you a beauty enthusiast ready to slay your way into entrepreneurship? 💅🏻 Then we’ve got just the right solution for you! Raq, the fierce founder of LASHGOD, dipped her toes into the beauty biz back in 2015, by opening up her lash salon in Canada with just $3,000. 🤸🏼♀️ Today, she owns a multi-million dollar brand. 💸
If you want to scratch that entrepreneurship itch yourself, let us share with you some useful tips and tricks on how to turn your passion into a career. 👩🏼💻 Of course, we will also answer some of the most common questions most people have before entering the lash industry. 🙋🏻♀️ However, before we get into the nitty-gritty, let us first share with you three amazing reasons why lashin’ it up is your ticket to the beauty industry throne. 💰🥇
💰💲 Low Start-Up Cost!💲💰
Let’s talk money first, shall we? 😏 Everyone knows that it costs a lot of money to open up a business. However, a lash biz is one of the most budget-friendly options, with the highest return rates. 💵 Typically, a lash extension course costs somewhere around $1,300 to $3,000. Of course, choosing the right course is mandatory, and we have the best ones. No matter if you’re looking for online or in-person courses, Modern Aesthetic College has everything covered. And most of the things that you need, will already be available in our LASHGOD kits. 🥰
In addition to that, all the extra things you will need are a cozy lash bed, a chic chair, and some fabulous lighting. 🛍️ Unlike other beauty services like nails or hair, which require a rainbow of supplies, lash extensions are a breeze to stock up on. For 98 percent of your clients, all you will need are black lashes, in a few curls, and lengths. 💁🏼♀️
🏡 Your Own Home or a Studio 🏢
Raq spilled the tea on her empire-building journey—no investors, no external capital, just hustle! Once you start doing lashes, it’s easy to make $500, $800, or even $1,000 a day from your cozy home or chic studio. 🤑 It’s also great as an after-school or work job for extra revenue. After some time, you will be able to re-invest that money and branch out into trainings, extra services, and building your glam squad. 📈 Before you know it, you too will be the proud owner of a lash salon in Canada, or wherever you may desire.
Remember, the beauty of being your own boss and owning your own business is that no one has a say in your work, but you. There are no limits, and who knows how far you might come in a couple of years. 🤩 We’re proud to say that our founder Raq took it to the next level, and offers services from nails to hair and beyond. So who says you can’t do it too, boss babe? 🥰
🥺 Shy Girl Friendly 🥺
This one is kind of funny but so true. 🤭 Doing lashes is something even the shyest of you out there can do. When your clients get their lashes done, they obviously have to close their eyes. 💆🏻♀️ Have you ever noticed how that immediately makes you more comfortable and more likely to open up during a conversation? 🤔
As Raq said in her Instagram Reel , ask anyone you know who has been doing lashes for a long time – people tell their whole life story on the lash bed. 🤫 That’s why lash techs know the best secrets and also have a strong relationship with their clients. It’s like a little therapy session for both you and them. 👯♀️ And once you create a bond with somebody, they are more likely to come back to your salon.
📄 Do I Need a License To Do Lashes in Canada? 📄
Now, let’s delve into the specifics, shall we? 🤓 You might be wondering if you need a cosmetology license for those fabulous eyelash extensions. Well, in Canada, you’re in luck – no license is required! 🥳 But, hey, skill is key, right? That’s where our amazing lash extension course comes in! 🎓 While there are plenty of online courses available, we just have to recommend our Modern Aesthetic College. 📚 We’ve got both online and in-person classes, and guess what? You’ll be learning from the absolute best in the biz. 🥇
💰 How To Start a Lash Salon in Canada? 💰
Starting off as an entrepreneur can be tough, especially at the beginning. 😮💨 Although we can’t help you with the nitty-gritty like coming up with a business plan 📊 or picking the perfect business name 🤔 we can certainly share some useful tips for venturing into the lash industry and setting up your very own lash salon. 💅🏻
🧐 Be Curious 🤓
First and foremost, figure out your target market. 👯♀️ Picture your potential clients vividly. How old are they? 👩🏻 Delve deep into research, not just about the demographics, but also the competition. 🕵🏼♀️ This will be a great way to find out what types of lash services are trending in your area, and what marketing materials 📈 you will need to grow your business.

🏡 Home Studio or Salon 🏢
It’s entirely your call whether you want to work from a home studio or lease space. 📍If you’re just starting your journey as a lash artist, beginning from home can be the safer choice. 🏡 Especially while you’re in the process of attracting new clients. Remember, the key lies in leaving your clients not just satisfied but making them feel as comfortable as possible while they’re getting their lashes done. 🥰 Once you nail that, they’ll be drawn back to you, regardless of your workspace.
👩🏼💻 Social Media Accounts 🤳🏻
Once you’ve settled on your business name, the next step is to set up social media accounts. 👩🏼💻 This step is crucial as it not only promotes your eyelash business to potential customers but also enables you to streamline online bookings and gain a deeper understanding of your target market. 💻
Social media platforms, such as Instagram, TikTok, and even Facebook can boost your eyelash business more than any conventional advertisement ever could. 📈 So make sure you’re posting high-quality and engaging content on a regular basis. This is especially important if you’re a new lash tech, as it will help you reach a wider audience. 🤩
