#6: Pet-Sitting/Dog Walking
The cool thing about being a lash artist is the ability to make your own schedule. This is why being a pet-sitter or dog-walker is great! Have a gap in your appointment schedule? This is a great flexible way to fill that time with easy work that pays.
Another bonus: sitting for long periods of time applying lash extensions is hard on the body. This side job allows you to get out and about and move your body.
