How To Choose A Lash Supplier

Stocking up your lash suite or salon is no small feat. From lashes to adhesive to tweezers, there’s a lot to keep in mind. Finding the best lash supplier can be difficult, especially at the beginning of your journey.

So how do you decide which lash vendor to choose? There’s no one size fits all option, but you can definitely find one that works for your specific lash needs. Keep reading for our top tips for selecting the right lash supplier for you!

Picking The Best Lash Extension Vendors

The quality and range of your lash products can truly help you thrive as a lash artist. So selecting the right lash supplier is crucial, especially if you’re just starting out. Here are a few quick ways to review your options so you know exactly which vendor is your best choice.

Opt For High-Quality Products

It may be tempting to go straight for the cheapest supplier you can find, but chances are they aren’t your best option. Cheap suppliers often use subpar ingredients and materials in their products and might have questionable practices. With a little digging, you should be able to find lash vendors that balance affordability and quality.

For example, make sure your supplier is using high quality PBT to make their lashes. Even better — do they manufacture their own lashes? If so, they can vouch for the quality of their product and ensure that you’re getting the best lashes possible.

(We actually do manufacture our own lashes — Michelle owns multiple lash manufacturers in her home country of Vietnam!)

Think About Your Specific Needs

Your needs as a lash artist are unique to you — do you only do mega volume sets? Are you branching out into lash lifts and brow laminations as well? Maybe you’re even thinking about adding hydrogel masks or nail services to your menu. Make sure that the lash supplier you’re going with offers everything you need to be successful. It’s usually easier to get all of your supplies from one vendor rather than hopping around to a bunch of different companies. 

Check Out Loyalty Programs

Many lash suppliers will reward return customers with some type of loyalty program. This might be in the form of discounts, free gifts, or other rewards. While this might not make or break a lash vendor, it can be something to consider when weighing your options. 

Here at PLA, return customers earn points every time they shop! Then those points can be used as discounts on future purchases as an incentive to stick around.

Look Into Wholesale Discounts

If you purchase a lot of lash supplies at once, you might want to think about wholesale lash vendors. Many lash suppliers will offer discounts on large or bulk purchases to help you save money as you spend more. This is a great way to keep your lash inventory stocked up but keep prices lower.

Consider Any Additional Resources Or Education

High quality lash supplies are one thing; some lash suppliers will also have other resources available to their customers. We’re proud to not only offer a full range of lash supplies, but also provide the education necessary to use those supplies. Education is at the heart of everything we do, so offering online courses, free informative blogs, and professional lash tips on our social media are just some of the ways we help lash artists expand their technical knowledge.
