HOW TO WORK WITH CLASSIC EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

STEP #1

When picking up the classic lashes, place your tweezer in the middle of the lash. Not too high and not too low. Too low might cause the lash glue to go onto your lash tweezer, too high won't give you enough control over the lash.

HOW TO APPLY CLASSIC LASHES?

Attach the extension from the top, bottom, right or left side. It doesn't matter as long as you focus on the proper placement at the base of the lash. Wait for a second before letting it go. You can adjust the lash extension to the right direction if you need to. Just make sure you do it quickly before your lash adhesive dries.

HOW TO REMOVE CLASSIC LASHES? ( using the banana peel method )

STEP #1

The easiest way to remove classic eyelash extensions is the banana peel method. One tweezer holds onto the natural lash and the other tweezer holds onto the extension.

 

STEP #2

Just pulling in opposite directions should easily separate the lashes apart like you are peeling a banana. If it doesn't work and you have to use a lot of force, you probably used too much lash adhesive.

CONCLUSION

If your client wants to add length, defined lash curls, and achieve the look of mascara without applying it. Then classic eyelash extensions is the perfect choice! Keep in mind that the length of the lash extensions should be no more than 2mm longer than the natural lashes. Classic lashes also come in a variety of thicknesses, with some individual lashes having a larger diameter than others for a truly customized look. 

If the new set of eyelash extensions for your client has been applied, and the lash extension application is complete. Make sure they understand the importance of extension aftercare. Their new lashes will last up to 4-6 weeks if properly cared for, and they will require refills every 2-3 weeks.
