Whether you're a lash pro aiming to start a home-based business or a beginner eager to learn, here's everything you need to launch your eyelash business from home.

The Benefits of Running a Lash Business From Home 

  • Flexibility: Gone are the days of 9 to 5. When you’re your own boss, you set your own hours. Early bird? Night owl? You decide when you want to work.
  • Lower Overheads: Renting commercial space can be pricey. Working from home slashes overhead costs, leaving more profit in your pocket.
  • Convenience: Forget the daily commute! Your workspace is just a few steps away, meaning more time for yourself (and maybe an extra cup of coffee!)
  • Personal Touch: Operating from home allows you to offer a more personalised experience. In the comfort of a home setting, your clients may feel more relaxed and valued.
  • Easy Expansion: As your business grows, transforming another room or sectioning off an area can be done without the hassle of relocating.

Is a Home-Based Lash Business Your Next Step?

You might be the perfect candidate for a home lash business if you are a:

  • Current Lash Technicians: Run your own business from home
  • Beauty Enthusiasts: Get a solid start in the lash world.
  • Makeup Artists: Add lashes to your repertoire.
  • Savvy Starters: Begin without huge commercial costs.
  • Business Beginners: Get the basics of setting up your brand.
  • Curious Minds: Learn about the potential in the lash industry.

Home Lash Business Earning Potential 

A home-based lash business is extremely profitable, with an earning potential of $2,500+ per week! Here’s why: 

  • High Demand: The beauty industry, especially the lash extension segment, has seen a boom in recent years. With the rise of beauty influencers and the emphasis on eye makeup (thanks, face masks!), demand for lash extensions is soaring.
  • Recurring Revenue: Lashes aren’t a one-time thing. Regular fills mean repeat business, translating to a steady income.
  • Markup Potential: The cost of lash products versus the prices you can charge for professional application offers a favourable profit margin.
  • Additional Services: As you gain experience, you can offer add-ons like lash tinting, lifting, or even brow services – all increasing your revenue streams.
  • Low Startup Costs: Especially when operating from home, the initial investment for a lash business is relatively low compared to potential returns.
