HOW THE EYELASH EXTENSION INDUSTRY HAS BOOMED
If you are a lash student or lash artist who is considering opening up your own shop, you may understandably be wondering if the lash industry will continue to take off, or if it will peter out and you will be left with a lackluster investment.private label lashes
Fortunately, as the Magic 8-Ball would say, when it comes to if the eyelash extension industry is booming, "all signs point to yes.”
In fact, in a recent ABC News Report that looks at how false eyelashes have become an everyday accessory, the market is found to not only be growing, it is projected to reach a whopping $1.5 billion in the next five years in product alone. Thanks to the ability to customize a look for each customer, many eyelash companies and lashpreneurs can stock a variety of types of eyelashes. The procedure has become so common, the article notes, that many women feel like it’s the same as going to get your hair done — in other words, a typical appointment that women fit into their everyday lives.
An infographic appropriately titled “A Beautiful Lash Life” backs up the ABC News Report’s findings that eyelash extensions are a thriving industry. As the infographic notes, 75 percent of lash artists earn up to $50,000 a year, and 25 percent have worked in the industry for five or more years. A whopping 80 percent of lash experts surveyed responded that they are either satisfied or very satisfied with their careers, and 63 percent are earning the income that they expected.
Almost half of the respondents apply 11 or more sets of eyelashes each week and 42 percent charge between $61 and $120 for a full set of lashes. What this highly informative infographic does is paint a positive picture of the businesses that the men and women who are applying extensions professionally are experiencing. While they also report some challenges like how to attract new customers and managing their clients’ aftercare, the overall work experience is highly positive and lucrative.
