I’m not entirely sure of a pro for this method. If you are priced this way and love it, please share in the comments. I’d love to hear other opinions and ideas I’ve never thought of before.
Weekly pricing is personally my least favorite and here’s why; As a lash artist looking at pricing like this… it tells me that you haven’t figured out great retention for the majority of your clients and that your full sets aren’t actually 100% full. Or if you are getting them 100% full then the retention is not lasting as long as 3 weeks. Clients can and should be able to go 3+ weeks. Note: Not all clients can go 3 weeks (because of amount of lashes and growth cycles) but the majority should be able to. I have a few that go 5 weeks because their growth cycle is so slow. I have 2 that come every 2 weeks ready for a fill because their growth cycle is fast and naturally they don’t have as many lashes. The clients with fast growth cycles are the ones who take all their vitamins and a Collagen drink daily too, which makes retention difficult. (If you are looking for more information about Retention, download my free ebook. Click here).
If you choose to price this way then you need to also be aware of your time. For example if you are booking 1 hour fills for each service (one week fill and 3 week fill are both 1 hr) then you are making more money for a 3 week fill then a one week fill and the client is getting less lashes at 3 weeks then if they come every week.
