HOW TO GET CLIENTS READY FOR EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

The prep work is the most important aspect of performing lash extensions. A smooth application process will be ensured if the client is properly prepared.

  1. When you begin your lashing process, make sure to conduct a thorough consultation to determine the style, length, and thickness that your client prefers.

  2. Before applying eyelashes, remove eye makeup with a water-based cleaner, and then dry it with a lint-free cloth. A client with a clean face will give you more time to deal with their eyelashes. It is not recommended to curl eyelashes. It is better to work on the lashes while they are still in their natural condition.

  3. To avoid discomfort and eye damage during lash application, contact lenses must be removed.

  4. Drinking liquids containing caffeine can cause eyelids to move, making it difficult to apply eyelashes. Excessive eye movement can lead to incorrect extensions.

  5. Limit the intake of liquids. It is advised that clients do not use the restroom frequently.

  6. Before the eyelash appointment, ask questions about your clients' allergies. In addition, for the sake of the client's safety, it is best to have them sign a waiver during the consultation. (if needed)

  7. While having a relaxing appointment, they can listen to music or a podcast. To avoid distraction and reading text messages, they must put their phone on silent mode. For the safety of every client, they should keep their eyes closed throughout the session.

  8. A fill session lasts about 40 minutes to an hour, while a full extension process takes about 2 to 3 hours. Inform your clients that they should wear comfortable clothing for the relaxing session.

STEP #5 | ISOLATION

Many artists forget to use their pick up tweezers when isolating. However, using both tweezers makes positioning and isolating your client's small lashes much easier.

When isolating with both tweezers, angle your isolation tweezer downwards, towards the lashes. Also, angle your pick-up tweezer upwards, lifting and moving the lashes away to create a clean field of vision and enable isolation easier.

STEP #8 | LASH EXTENSION APPLICATION

Set the extension after swiping the normal lash with just enough glue to coat it on the natural lash about 1 mm from the eyelid, release the individual lash extension onto the normal lash.

Continue to another region or the opposite eye, implementing extensions until you reach your goal. It becomes difficult to isolate more natural lashes; this will assist in avoiding stickies.

STEP #9 | LASHES SHOULD BE SEPARATED

No multiple lash extensions or natural lashes should be sticking to each other. Separate any extensions that are stuck together with the two sets of lash tweezers. Grasp and separate in a horizontal technique; this is best done even if the adhesive is dry but not completely cured.

On natural lashes, never pull in the vertical route or area with any rigidity. Repeat the application and separation steps until each natural lash has been bonded to the individual lash.

STEP #10 | DRY THE LASH ADHESIVE

When all lash extensions have been securely bonded, allow 3 to 5 minutes for the newly adorned lashes to dry.

If you want to improve your retention, you need to use a super bonder to cure the adhesive bond. Using a lash fan, dry the lashes. Mist with distilled water, dry for 3 minutes, and check for stickies once more.
