Everything About Pre-made and Pro-made Fans

New to lashing and still grasping ways on how to perfect making your own lash fans and that perfectly normal. You don't need to feel bad about it. 

There are a lot of discussion around if you need to use pre-made or pro-made fans. You as a lash artist can decide on what is best for you. There's a lot of reason on why you should use pre made and pro made fans. 

Let me discuss the difference between the two types of fans. 

Pre-made Fans

Pre-made Fans are fans that are ready for you to use. They were placed on a lash tray and ready for you to pick up and attach  to the natural lashes of your clients.  The exact same was as you would attach a classic lash, you would attach a pre-made fan.

These fans are from 2 to 10 lashes glued or head bonded. The purpose of pre-made fans is for the lash artist to decrease lashing time and  cater to more clients, by decreasing application time.  Some lash artists feel guilty about using a pre-made fans, worrying that it makes them less of a lash artist. However, we are here to tell you that pre-made fans have been invented for the purpose of bridging the gap for beginner lash artists to offer more voluminous techniques to their clients, without necessarily having learned the skill of hand making volume fans.  A lot of clients prefer for lash artists to use pre-made fans, since it dramatically  cuts down their appointment time, yet having the same effect of a beautiful full lash set. This Innovation is here, and its' not going anywhere, it does not make someone a better or worse lash artist if they choose to use innovations that have migrated to the market of lash extensions, in fact it makes them smart.

Is it okay to use pre-made fans? 

Yes, in my opinion, when you are still starting and mastering the skills of creating your own fans, this would be a good alternative. Pre-made fans will save you time, especially for the beginner lash artist and allows them to offer their clients looks that are a little more extravagant, like a hybrid, volume, and mega volume.

Pre-made are just like a regular lashes, they should be applied correctly so it will not harm the natural lashes of your clients. Obviously the same rules of diameter of the fan and weight application should be considered, in order to lash your clients lashes safely. 

When practicing how to make your volume set, it will be costly especially when you are still starting on this journey. Remember, at this point of your career when you wanted to get as many clients as you can then pre-made are a great solution, since they offer lash artists some variety of sets they can offer their clients, as well as improving the speed of the appointment.

This is just alternative to our lash artist who are just beginning their lash career. It is still advisable for lash artists  to keep practicing creating hand made fans. However it can take from 2 months -6 months to learn this skill set, and lash clients are not willing to wait for their lash artist to learn to do volume lashes, they want them when they want them.


When using pre-made fans, you can assure your clients, that they get consistent lash fans that are perfectly made, however, the downside would be is that they'll will be lesser chance of customizing the look of your clients. 

There are some myth going around that using pre-made fans are bad for your lashes. That they are heavy and will absolutely damage your lashes. Actually, it will only destroy your lashes if they are not properly attached. They are a lot of length and dimension for the clients to choose from so it will not be too heavy for them. The customization is getting more and more extensive. For example, we now offer 3D-10D pre made fans in various curls. There will be L and M curls in pre-made fans available in the coming months. Therefore, at the fast pace the lash industry is evolving and improving and there's no reason to not make use of amazing innovations that are available for lash artists to save time.

Pre-made Application

Pre-made fans are attached to the natural lashes Just like classic lashes, they are applied to each individual lashes of your clients. If property done, they look amazing, and its absolutely undistinguishable from regular hand-made fans.

Pre-made fans should feel lightweight and your clients natural lashes should remain healthy.

 Pro-made Fans

Pro-made fans are fans made by the lash artist without the help of the machinery, this makes them absolutely 100% hand-made.  Some lash artist are making this prior to their clients appointments. They are not perfectly identical like the pre-made fans are, since there is human error that occurs.

The pro-made fans also come in a box, they are loose, and not attached to a sticky strip like the pre-made fans are. This can take a little more time, since its important to remove them from the box and place them on a gel pad in order to start using them. Most lash artists use a box for storing the pro- made fans.

You can get more clients when you use pro-make fans prior to your appointment and will absolutely lessen the hand tension. Because you don't have to be in a hurry when you do this ahead of time. 

It all depends on the strategy of the lash artist, which one will be convenient for her. Pro-made fans are used by lash artist that enjoy fans that are already ready to go in a loose format.

Pro-made fans are less expensive then pre-made fans, since one box comes with 500 pre-made fans. Each box has single lengths, so if a lash artist likes to work with multiple lengths, which is usually the case, it is advisable to purchase a few lengths and curls to have on hand for perfect mapping.

 My thoughts on these two?

I am using both actually, it all depends on the situation. What works for me might not  work for you. As a lash artist, we wanted to work efficiently and at the same time give quality lash look to our clients. Because at the end of the day, we wanted to make our clients satisfied with our work.
