KG Professional’s new premium, pre-made lashes, are designed to save over an hour in the chair and increase profit for beauty professionals.  Available in 0.07 4D, 0.05 6D and 10D, these pre-fanned lashes cost only £19 per tray, with 20 rows of lashes set in plastic-free, recyclable packaging.  With pre-made lashes, you can sit more clients in the chair throughout the day for 1 hour treatments rather than the usual 2+ hours.  Set at a recommend pricing of £85 per treatment, pre-made lashes can create a profit of above £65 per client! Customers leave the salon in half the time, with beautifully premium, fanned lashes.

Katie Godfrey, the brand owner, says “I see a lot of lash artists go wrong with their pricing so it’s important to look at all expenses, salon capacity and products to ensure you’re not out of pocket when carrying out treatments. I wasn’t happy with what I saw on the market, but knew the concept of pre-made lashes was important to offer my clientele as a simple way cutting down time in the chair, plus increasing appointments and profit for the business.”

The Hair and Beauty Charity are still working to support those that need their help.  They had over £250,000 donated from professional beauty expert, Caroline Hirons and the Beauty Backed campaign. They have funds available for those people who do need their help; ask them if you need support.

They are a small charity and have to prioritise assistance to those who need it most urgently.  Priority will be given to households where only one adult (working within the industry) provides the only income to the household (e.g. if you live with your partner who will still receive an employed wage, priority will be given to single parent families whose only income is dependent on their hair/beauty industry wage).  Visit their website for more information and to make an application.
