We love offering fun sales for our loyal customers! No matter what time of the year it is, an amazing sale or Paris Lash Academy discount code is never far off.

If you stay tuned for those discounts, you may be able to snag supplies you need to stock up on for the year ahead at a super great price. That way, you won’t have to worry about it come January!

ProMade vs. Handmade Fans

ProMade Lash Fans from Paris Lash Academy

This one is specifically for the lash artists out there! 

We here at PLA love our ProMade fans — these professionally handmade fans are created from the same volume lashes that come in our trays with minimal adhesive for amazing bonds and retention. 

However — and we don’t love saying this — consistently using ProMades is a lot more expensive for you than learning to hand-make your own fans. While we obviously love our ProMades and want to share them with all our fellow lash artists, we’re also looking out for you and your hard-earned money! Once you can confidently create your own fans, you will be amazed at how much it saves you financially in the long run.

If you’re finding that you’re able to complete volume sets quickly with ProMades, it might be time to branch out into hand making your own fans. This can seem intimidating, but there are a ton of resources out there to help you out! 

For example, our online Classic & Volume Course contains an entire section with various fan making methods to help you master this skill. Or, if you would like even more hands-on support, you might want to look into our in-person Classic & Volume Training! We host a class here at our Reno headquarters almost every month, so keep an eye on our social media for class announcements! We know you’re always on the lookout for a cheap online lash certification too, and we do offer virtual classes as well.  

Increasing Your Prices

One more way to bring in more money is just to raise your own prices! This doesn’t need to be drastic — even raising your prices by $5 can make a big difference and is unlikely to scare off loyal customers. 

And what perfect timing! The start of a new year is a great time to announce new prices. You can also invest in your business by taking a class (either online or in-person) which will then give you the opportunity to increase your prices to reflect your education! 

Your prices should show your clients that you value your skills and are proud of the work you do! Don’t be afraid to raise your prices every now and then so you can keep using high-quality products and give your clients beautiful lashes or nails.
