Ep 67 - Burnout in the Esthetics Industry

Summer burnout or FOMO? As esthetic professionals, many of us were initially excited and encouraged about returning to work post-pandemic. We adjusted many aspects of our businesses—masks, new cleaning protocols, longer appointment times, a more forgiving cancellation policy, etc.

But now, just as the rest of the country is setting new travel records going everywhere (or anywhere) here we are, stuck in our treatment rooms every weekend!

Ep 65 - Lash Misconceptions: social media vs. reality

Google lash extensions, and the images that pop up are everything from mega-volume to classic full sets. Often the images portrayed are from procedures that take hours to perform on one eye alone, and are for social media purposes only—they are not reality. In this episode of ASCP Esty Talk, Cirocco Stout shares with us common lash misconceptions and the detrimental effects of these unrealistic expectations on the lash artist and their business.
