HOW MANY LASHES YOU NEED FOR A CLASSIC SET?

Lashes for each eye or lash count. Some lash artist do count the lashes to give their clients an understanding and idea to what they will actually get. For example, applying 80-100 lashes per eye. Some lash artists prefer to time themselves, for example a classic set typically lasts anywhere from 1h30 -2h for a full set. A refill typically takes a little bit less time, because we are refilling the lashes that have fallen off, not starting over from scratch.

WHAT TYPE OF LASHES TO USE FOR CLASSIC?

For classic lashes, .15 mm is the most common length. .20 and .25 are not recommended for classic lash sets.

In the past, .25 diameters used to be used for classic lashes in order to give the lashes a fuller denser look, but with new innovations like pre-made fans and the technique of volume lashes that has become more sophisticated there really is no need to use 0.20 and 0.25 diameters as they are too heavy for the clients natural lashes. 

Diameters of 0.10 are good for lashes that are very fine and weak and for clients who like a really natural look, 0.12 would also be a very natural and fine look. 

Diameters of 0.15 and 0.18 are going to be used for clients with fairly healthy lashes that want a fairly full look.

CLASSIC LASHES: WHAT LENGTHS ?

With classic lashes and volume lashes the rule of lash safety is to ensure you are using a lash extensions that is MAXIMUM 2-3 mm longer then the clients natural lash. This means that if your clients lashes in the inner corners are 6mm, the lash extensions should be 8mm. If the clients lashes in the middle of the eye are 12mm, the lash extensions should not be longer then 15mm. This is a good rule to remember in order to avoid damaging the clients lashes.

 

CLASSIC LASHES: HOW TO APPLY THEM?

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.

STEP #2

If you are about to dip the lash, do it slowly. Coat about 2mm of the lash. The speed of dipping the lash into the adhesive is very important as it will determine how much adhesive will be on the lash extension.

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, or 2 depending on the speed of your adhesive, before letting it go. You can adjust the lash extension direction if you need to. Just make sure you do it quickly before your lash adhesive dries.

CLASSIC LASHES: HOW TO REMOVE 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.

CLASSIC EYELASH EXTENSIONS: HOW TO MAKE THEM FULLER?

You need to make sure that you lash each and every lash. Do not skip the inner corners because lashing the inner corners will complete your set.

By ensuring that you lash every lash your sets will appear fuller and more dense, a great technique is to use the tapping technique to tape up the lashes in order to isolate the lower lash layers in order to have a clearer visual of the lashes and allow for easier workaround and isolation.
