Eyelash extensions are one of the most popular forms of beautification nowadays. When it comes to applying them, time, dedication, and a lot of practice are essential, especially when you're just starting out as a lash artist.

In this blog, you will learn all the steps required to apply lash extensions, how to remove the eyelash extensions safely and correctly, eyelash extensions before and after and lash care instructions but first let me discuss how to prepare for lash appointment.

 

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.

HOW DO YOU APPLY EYELASH EXTENSIONS FOR BEGINNERS?

STEP #1 WASH THE CLIENTS EYELASHES

Cleaning the lashes is essential in preventing the adhesive that maintains the lash extensions in place from breaking down due to makeup and oil.

STEP #3 | APPLY THE UNDER EYE PATCHES GENTLY

When applying lash patches, take your time. Keep an eye on your lash extension isolation tweezers. In most cases, their tips should not come into contact with the eye pad. Check the eye pads. It’s always better to detect 2 or 3 lower lashes sticking out or even glued together at an early process.

STEP #4 | MAP OUT YOUR EYELASH SET

Lash mapping also saves you time by allowing you to create the perfect variety of lash extensions in less time and allowing you to go back to your lash mapping at any time. Eyelash mapping is important for offering excellent lash extensions to your clients, no matter how long you've been lashing.STEP #4  MAP OUT YOUR EYELASH SET

STEP #5 | ISOLATION

Many lash 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.

Angle your isolation tweezer downwards, towards the lashes, when isolating with both tweezers. To provide a clean range of view and make isolation simpler, slant your pick-up tweezer up, lifting and moving the lashes away.

STEP #5  ISOLATION

STEP #6 | SLOWLY DIP THE LASH INTO THE GLUE

Dip the extension into the adhesive while holding it by its tapered end, striking the exact balance between too much and too little adhesive. To avoid retention concerns, make sure you use the appropriate quantity.

STEP #7 | PROPERLY ISOLATE AND APPLY THE EXTENSIONS

Isolate the natural lashes, swipe the extension together with the natural lash. Use the wrapping technique. Coat the natural lash with the adhesive from its base to the tip, making sure there are no gaps in the adhesive. Disperse the lash adhesive equally until it becomes smooth.

STEP #8 | LASH EXTENSION APPLICATION

Place the lash extension onto the natural lash after swiping the it with just enough adhesive to coat it on the natural lash around 1 mm from the eyelid.

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.

LASH AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Lash extensions require special care. are high maintenance. Gentle care to ensure that the lashes last longer and remain in good condition. Correct and proper aftercare is crucial for both client retention and your professional reputation.

  • Be gentle with your eyelashes. Avoid rubbing or pulling them

  • Strictly no lash perming!

  • Within 4-6 hours of lash application, no saunas, facials, or going to the pool for swimming

  • If you are baking, avoid sticking your head into  the oven. It has the possibility to singe your extensions! When putting something in or taking something out of the oven, turn your head away from it

  • Eyelash curlers should not be used
