Bridal Eyelash Extensions & Wedding Season Marketing

March 12, 2018

For many brides, the wedding journey can be a whirlwind of dress shopping, food tasting, event coordination, glam planning, and budgeting! This year, start your bridal marketing plans early so bridal eyelash extensions can be part of her budget.

When it comes to bridal eyelash extensions marketing, timing is key. Conservatively, your marketing plans should be up and running 1-2 months before June- so it’s time to start thinking of what you want to do now. Unsure of what to do? Read our 3 key tips below plus print out our step-by-step tutorial for the Classic Bride and Mother of the Bride lash extensions looks.

Be seen as the Bridal Eyelash Extensions go-to person

Begin advertising at least 1-2 months before the season starts by ordering new window clings, posters, and brochures to promote your salon to brides-to-be. In addition to in-salon advertising, reach out to local newspapers and magazines for advertising rates to see if it’s an option for you. If yes, be sure to track their advertising effectiveness by including a promo code for a special gift/service or by simply asking all your new clients, “How did you hear about us?”

Cross-Promoting Bridal Eyelash Extensions

Work directly with local hairstylists, makeup artists, wedding planners, bridal shops, photographers, or even the local gym to promote your business to brides. This means visiting their place of business armed with a stack of business cards and Xtreme Lashes® brochures. Offer to place their business brochures/business cards in your salon if they do would the same for you. Raise the stakes by offering complimentary lashes to select business owners as a way of building your network and utilizing them as walking advertisement to the brides-to-be that they meet daily!

Lash Packages for Two

Create easy-to-buy packages for the bride and a special woman in her life. If you have a few Lash Stylists working for you, an easy package to create is one for the Bride and Mother of the Bride. This mother-daughter package can be percent or dollar savings when both clients arrive for their appointment together. It’s the perfect way for mother and daughter to bond through beauty! If you are the sole Lash Stylist for your business, a great way to secure a bride-to-be is to offer a complimentary Relash™ with every full set for a limited time.
