In this blog, you will learn all the secrets of premade fan lash extensions but first, let me discuss what are premade fans.

 

WHAT ARE PREMADE LASH FANS?

A premade fan is made up of multiple lashes that have been put together in a V shape. The quantity of lashes in a lash fan determines how fluffy and large the fan will be, as well as how the finished lash set will look. There are a variety of premade lashes on the market today.

Premade fans are made in the same way as handmade volume lashes, with the exception that a machine is used to help. A row of thin PBT threads is usually set on a lash tray, with the bases either heat-bonded or glued with a small amount of adhesive.

Once the base adhesion is complete, the threads can be coiled into the desired curl and heat-processed to keep the curl. The finished product is placed in a tray and attached to an adhesive strip, just like individual lash extensions.

PREMADE VOLUME FANS VS HANDMADE FANS

Premade fans may be an ideal approach for lash artists who don't do volume lash sets every day or are new to volume to complete a volume set in half the time.

Premade fans have gone a long way since they first hit the market, back then, they had bulky, thick bases and were extremely heavy, thanks to a lot of unnecessary adhesives.

Even the most experienced lash artists nowadays have trouble distinguishing between premade and handmade fans. This is due to the fact that today's modern premade fans have extremely thin bases.

Promade fans are 100% handmade. They can be made by a lash artist before the client's appointment and stored for use during the session. Alternatively, you can get promade fans from different lash brands.

Handmade or promade fans take a long time to master, and if you're an experienced lash artist, it may only take a second or two to create a handmade fan.

 

How do you tell the difference between cluster lashes and premade fans?

Another thing to keep in mind is that premade fans and cluster lashes are not the same things. Clusters have thick bases, making isolation on natural lashes extremely difficult.

Cluster lashes are made for customers to apply them to their own lashes at home ( DIY style ). These lashes are not applied by a lash artist typically, but by clients. These types of lashes are not meant for long term wear, they are meant to wear for a night, and then it’s advisable to remove them, to avoid damaging the natural lashes.

WHEN AND WHY USE PREMADE LASH FANS?

You might love or dislike premade fans, but keep in mind that the market is changing, and so should you. Now is the time to consider your clients.

We understand that you've undoubtedly invested a lot of time and money into learning advanced volume techniques, numerous ways to make volume fans, or difficult styles.

Maybe your client is tired, maybe she's pregnant, or maybe she just doesn't have time to stay in a lash bed or recliner for 3 or more hours while we create our volume set. So why don't we offer the client something that will help her get through her treatment faster? Remember that satisfied clients equals happy clients.

Another thing to keep in mind is that time equals money, and using premade fans can help you save both. Using premade fans will allow you to complete tasks that you would otherwise be unable to complete or simply spend time with your family.

If you can give your client the same result in a shorter amount of time, that's a plus. You should seriously consider increasing your prices. I know, we know, and you know that there are a lot of clients who will gladly spend more if they can get the same effect in a shorter amount of time.

Using premade fans, on the other hand, does not imply that you are no longer skilled. Cleaning, priming, and isolating, or using the glue, are still important.

We understand that after finishing many Russian volume courses, the availability of premade fans on the market can be a little frustrating. Try to think of it as something that will improve your lash game rather than something that will make it worse. Premade fans just save you one step, you'll still need to know everything.

PREMADE LASH FANS: LASHING IN LAYERS

Although using premade fans will save you time, there are a few things to keep in mind, one of which is dealing with layers.

The simplest technique to work with layers is to place the longer lashes on the bottom layer, one size shorter on the middle layer, and one size shorter on the top layer. As a result, when your client opens her eyes, she will have a beautiful dark lashline.

You can use a simple eyelash extension taping trick to assist you with layers. To make the bottom layer visible, simply tape the lashes up. After you've finished lashing the bottom, take out another layer of lashes with a tweezer, lash layer, and repeat the process. Remove another layer of natural lashes with the tweezers. In this way, you'll be sure to work properly, layer by layer, while keeping the size in mind.

When isolating, always use very pointed tweezers and take your time. Keep your isolation tweezer in place for a second after applying a premade fan to ensure that the adhesive has fully dried before removing it.

Even the most skilled lash artists may encounter a few stickies throughout their work, which is why we should always spend 7-12 minutes at the end of the lash set checking for stickies.

REMEMBER: Check for stickies and maintain your client's natural lash health.

HOW DO YOU USE PREMADE FANS?

The amount of lash adhesive used and the placement of the fans are crucial for successful bonding. The fan can be attached to the natural lashes from either the top or bottom. Remember that the base should be dipped in glue for at least 2mm, and the longer the extension, the longer the base should be. You'll be able to assure exact alignment this way.

When it comes to the attachment point, make sure the entire base is flat against the natural lash. You won't get a flawless attachment if it's popping up or crisscrossing. When you're a newbie, the distance should be no more than 1mm. If you're an experienced lash artist, we recommend using half of a millimeter as the distance from the eyelid.

Please remember, as I'm sure you already know, that lashes should never be attached to the skin because this might result in a severe allergic reaction or just irritation.

When dipping the fan in the adhesive, make sure you scoop it upwards slightly. You'll have enough glue to wrap around the natural lash nicely this way. The incorrect way to dip the premade fan into the glue is to do it in fast motion, which results in a small bubble of glue and insufficient adhesive to attach the fan.

To get the fan, open your tweezer and grab the middle of the fan, so that you don't destroy it when you pick it up, grip it and peel it towards yourself. The incorrect way of picking up the fan is too high up, not strong enough grip, or squeezing too much.

PRE-TREATMENT

To make sure that your client’s lashes will be lasting and you'll have great retention every single time, it is important to take time doing pre-treatment. The first thing to remember is that if your clients will come to the appointment with some makeup, you can do a lash bath using a lash foam shampoo to remove any oils or dust that may be around the lash line.

After successfully removing all the makeup, now is the time to prep the lashes when the client is laying down. Make sure all the eye area is perfectly clean.

The purpose of lash primer is to prepare the lashes before applying eyelash extensions.

HOW TO USE IT

  • Using a lip-gloss brush, Lash Primer may be applied directly onto the natural lashes before the application of lash extensions. It removes protein deposits and oil build-up on the natural lashes what can cause blepharitis and prepares the natural lashes to hold the extensions better.
  • Regardless of whether your client uses eye makeup, oil and protein build-up may occur throughout the day and it is important to cleanse and prime the natural lashes before the application of lash extensions.
  • Lash Primer is especially gentle on the eyes and does not cause any irritation when applied to the natural lashes and skin.
  • Wait for the product to dry on the natural lashes before the application of lash extensions.

CONCLUSION

Using premade fans does not eliminate the need for basic knowledge about the lash application, we must still ensure that we apply the eyelash extensions in a safe way, without any stickies or excess glue.

When you deal with premade fans, you're working with lashes that fan out a little more than when you're working with classic lashes. As a result, it's even more essential that you take some time to check for stickies.
