1. HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR BOTTOM LASHES DOWN?

THE PROBLEM:

Anchoring bottom lashes, whether with lash tape, gel patches or another way, is one of the most crucial aspects of lash service safety.

THE SOLUTION:

If the lashes become unanchored, it’s important  to stop your process to anchor them back down. Turn on a fan to ensure that your client's eyelashes are completely dry, as you may need them to open their eyes. Don’t try to reuse what’s not working.  Proceed with your lash service after replacing it with a new secure attachment.

2. HOW DO YOU UNSTICK EYELASH EXTENSIONS FROM BOTTOM LASHES?

THE PROBLEM:

You may see a lash sticking to the bottom of the lashes at the end of a lash session. This can happen even if you were very careful during setup. One of the main reason is the extension isn't being placed right

THE SOLUTION:

Make sure the root of the extensions is place right on the top of the root of the natural eyelash and make sure its glued right. It can also happen if the extension has grown out.

To unstick, gently pull eyelashes apart, they should separate most of the time. If not, gently separate the lashes with the client's eyes closed. Take a deep breath and move slowly, there is no need to rush. Your positive energy will also help the client relax.

3. HOW TO FIX TWISTED EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

THE PROBLEM:

It's most likely due to a lack of isolation. Isolation is one of the most difficult skills to learn when you first start out, so it's no surprise that this is a typical issue. Before moving on to advanced techniques, inexperienced lash tech should understand basic isolation.

THE SOLUTION:

This was caused by a prior lash artist's error, not by the client. If the eyelash extensions are becoming tangled, you'll probably want to scale back their length. It's always better to start over! You'll probably want to start over after removing all of the knotted and twisted lashes.

Remember to isolate properly so multiple lashes don’t become adhered. Use the 90-degree angle rule when it's time to restyle the lashes. It should be placed at a 90 degree angle. Focus on securing the eyelash extension to the lash's base. Remember, you don’t always have to follow the growth pattern of the natural lash. Sometimes natural lashes can grow in different directions.

Working back and forth between the eyes will allow the lash adhesive to set. This will prevent eyelashes from sticking together as you sift through looking for natural lashes around the area you just lashed.

4. EYELASH EXTENSION ALLERGIC REACTION REMEDIES

THE PROBLEM:

Irritation or allergies! To begin, it's critical to pinpoint the source of the problem. Once the allergen is removed, the redness and swelling caused by the allergy will go away. A variety of factors can cause a client to develop an allergy. If an allergy develops within the first 24-48 hours, it's usually due to an allergic reaction to the adhesive.

THE SOLUTION:

Although a lash artist is not a doctor, you could advise the client to take Benadryl or apply a warm compress to reduce swelling. 

If you attempt to remove the lashes while the client is experiencing redness and swelling, the chemical removal solution may irritate the client even more, causing further harm.

5. HOW TO FIX BAD EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

THE PROBLEM:

A client's natural lashes may be damaged for a variety of causes. If they've previously had lash extensions, it's possible that the lash artist overstressed the lash line by utilizing the inappropriate size or thickness of extension.

THE SOLUTION:

The key to having beautiful lash extensions is having a solid base. If your client's natural lashes aren't healthy, eyelash extensions are unlikely to work. You can use lash growth serum for your clients, you can also retail it to your clients. It's a win-win situation for everyone. You'll be able to sell things to your clients and they will have beautiful, healthy lashes after.

6. WHY ARE MY CLIENTS LASHES NOT LASTING?

THE PROBLEM:

When it comes to clearly understanding ourselves and our behaviors, it frequently takes someone watching us go through our routines to pinpoint the root of the problem. Nothing beats investing in quality education and/or a mentor when it comes to resolving this problem. One of the main reasons for this is you are using the incorrect adhesive for your speed and environment.

THE SOLUTION:

I the adhesive dries too quickly, it will set before a proper bond can form with the clients natural lash, which means poor retention.

Additionally, when the lash is off balance or not attached solidly at the bottom, I recommend peeling it off the natural hair and trying again. Do not try to add adhesive or another lash to make it better because this is unsafe. Gel remover should only be used as a last option to avoid getting remover all over your lashes.
