Consultation Blog 2018
Why is it so important to have a consultation with a new client before the actual procedure?
Here are a few great reasons
1. PREPARATION !
The last thing you want is to NOT be prepared!
For example, you receive a call from a new client that claims she’s just wants a color refresher

She shows up with a huge surprise! Green brows with a halo of old orange correction color.
OMG !!!! PANIC !!!
“What do I do?”
“Where do I start”
"I don’t have the pigments to correct her brows!”
“I’m not experienced with this type of skin or technique.”

other miscellaneous supplies. Trust me they will be very appreciative that your shared this
information and build a trust of your professionalism.
4. Be proud and show off your accomplishments.
