Navigating Your Career: Employees vs. Independent Lash Lift Techs

by Team Novoqueen on February 15, 2024

Hello my Queens!

Let's talk shop – specifically, about the choices you have as a lash lift tech. Are you thinking about sticking with a salon job, or are you tempted to go solo and work as an independent contractor? It's a big decision, but don't worry, I've got your back. Let's break it down together.

Embracing Employment: Finding Stability and Community

So, have you ever considered becoming a salon employee? It's not a bad gig, trust me. You get the comfort of a regular paycheck and the support of your fellow lash artists. Plus, there's something special about being part of a team, right?

What's Great About It:

  • Steady Income: It's nice to know that money's coming in like clockwork, right? No need to stress about when your next paycheck will arrive.
  • Team Bonding: Being part of a salon crew means you've got backup. You can swap tips, share stories, and have each other's backs when things get busy.

But Keep in Mind:

  • Following the Rules: Yep, being an employee means playing by the salon's rules. It's not always a walk in the park, but hey, at least you know what's expected of you.
  • Slow and Steady: Climbing the ladder in a salon takes time. If you're patient and willing to put in the work, though, it can pay off in the long run.

Venturing Solo: Enjoying Freedom and Flexibility

Now, let's talk about going solo. As an independent lash lift tech, you call the shots. Set your own schedule, work from wherever you want – the possibilities are endless!

What's Awesome About It:

  • Freedom to Do You: Working as an independent contractor means you're the boss. Want to work from home in your pajamas? You do you!
  • Unlimited Potential: The sky's the limit when you're working for yourself. With hard work and determination, you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

But Be Aware of:

  • Financial Ups and Downs: Freelancing isn't always smooth sailing. Some months you'll be rolling in cash, and other months you'll be counting pennies. It's all part of the game.
  • Isolation: Working solo can get lonely sometimes. Without a team to bounce ideas off of, it's just you and your lash kit against the world.

Making Your Decision: What Feels Right for You?

Alright, it's decision time. Do you want the security of a salon job, or are you ready to spread your wings and fly solo? Consider your work style, financial goals, and personal preferences as you weigh your options.

Things to Think About:

  • Your Work Style: Are you a team player who thrives in a salon environment, or do you prefer the freedom of working on your own terms?
  • Financial Security: How comfortable are you with the ups and downs of freelancing? Are you willing to trade stability for the chance to be your own boss?
  • Your Passion: What gets you excited about being a lash lift tech? Which path aligns best with your goals and aspirations?

Ready to Take the Next Step?

Whether you decide to join a salon crew or strike out on your own, remember – you've got this. Trust your instincts, follow your heart, and don't be afraid to take risks. After all, you're a badass lash lift tech, and the world is yours for the taking!
