Who doesn’t love to save money? The creators of “Groupon” have (supposedly) devised a win/win for business owners and clients alike; clients receive a deal on services they love from participating businesses, while those businesses increase clientele. So, what’s the catch, right? What we have been coming across here at Lash Boutique with previous Groupon users is that they have lost their natural lashes or the lashes that have been applied have fallen out so rapidly that an appointment for a fill HAD to be scheduled soon after the original application date. Talk about savings!
While we at Lash Boutique pride ourselves of the quality of our lashes as well as our educated technicians, many businesses cut many corners to save a few dollars themselves by hiring non-certified technicians and using lesser quality adhesives, endangering the health and safety of your natural lashes as well as eyes. To be sure that you are seeing a professional who is a certified technician be sure to go to XtremeLashes.com and Search For A Stylist. If the technician you have been seeing is not listed here, they may be certified with another company, however, Xtreme Lashes is the nations leading eyelash extension company and most certified technicians who are serious about their profession as well as the safety of their clients will be Xtreme Lashes certified.
Seeing a non-certified technician is a HUGE risk to your lashes as most non-certified technicians use the cheapest of adhesives and lashes. A cheap adhesive can leave your natural lashes weak and brittle and in some cases BALD. In the world of eyelash extensions it is almost a taboo subject, however, this is very real and very frightening experience to those who have unfortunately lived it. Verify the qualifications of your technician, ask them as many questions as you need to feel comfortable and confident that you are in safe and caring hands.
Unfortunately for those who are meeting with a technician who is certified, but their technique has not been perfected may still result in costly after effects by needing appointments on a weekly basis, rather than the three to four week touch ups that are needed by technicians as qualified as those employed by Lash Boutique. The frequency of which a fill is needed adjusts the “savings” you are actually receiving, if a participating company with Groupon offers a $60 fill but you are having to go to them weekly your monthly expense is now $240 rather than a three week fill (which means there is only one appointment a month) at Lash Boutique is $132. These are all factors that should be considered before selecting a Groupon offer, let alone sticking to that company.
Consider yourself warned!
