Before you start your sets it is important that your work station is in order and you have all your tools and equipment to hand. Preparation is key, Needless to say, fumbling around trying to find everything you need whilst your client is laying on your couch is not going to portray the sense of professionalism we want to convey to our clients. Below is a list of all the tools you will need to lash successfully.

You'll want as comfortable a bed as you can get. Again, mobile lash techs are limited as mobile couches are built for practicality not necessarily comfort but you can cover it with a thick throw (or two if you're feeling generous!). Lashing isn't a quick treatment so it's important that your client is comfortable. Place a rolled up towel or bolster at the top of the bed to help support the neck and cover with couch roll.
In terms of equipment all you really need for lashing is your couch, especially if you are mobile. I work in a salon so I have my lash trolley on one side and then I have my Glamcor lamp on the other. Although my Glamcor lamp is not essential I do find it invaluable. I used to lash without extra light but you will really notice how much easier it is to work with one so they are worth investing in.
When you booked in the appointment you should have also arranged for a patch test to be carried out at least 24 hrs beforehand. On arrival, you will sit down and need to go through a consultation card with your client OR you may have chosen to do this when you carried out your patch test. Either way they will need to sign to say that they experienced no reaction to the adhesive.
