When evaluating a client for a lash service, here are some factors to consider.
It’s important to consider if the client has ever had an allergy or sensitivity to either lash adhesives or gel patches. Some clients develop an allergy and simply can never wear eyelash extensions ever again. It’s tragic, we know.
EYELASH EXTENSIONS ALLERGIES: MUST READ
No matter how careful we are, this thing happens. You might wonder even to the clients you’ve been servicing for years. Eyelash extensions can cause allergic reactions comparable to other contact allergies, commonly known as contact dermatitis.
An allergic reaction to eyelash extensions is similar to other contact allergies, also known as
When a client has an adverse response to their eyelash extension adhesive, swelling and itching of the eyelids are common. They normally appear within 72 hours of a lash procedure being completed.
Eyelash extensions cause fewer reactions than the lashes themselves. Reactions occur when the glue is still uncured, and they form in response to either the carbon black used to color the adhesive or the adhesive itself.
HOW TO PREVENT ALLERGIC REACTION?
I would say less is more. Start using minimal adhesive and just add up if needed. Make sure that with each lash, you’re not getting too close to the lash line, staying at least 1mm away is a good rule of thumb.
A person's eyelid or eye may experience an allergic reaction. The area of an allergic reaction has an impact on the symptoms that a person experiences.
Another important aspect to consider is the comfortable with the implications of coming for a refill every 2-3 weeks. Some clients don’t want to maintain their lashes every 2-3 weeks . In this case it would be better to suggest a lash lifting for these clients.
It’s important to evaluate if your client is well educated on aftercare if eyelash extensions. In order to look beautiful and maintain the health of their natural lashes, clients must wash their lashes daily with a lash wash. Clients who skip this step or participate in other lash destructive behaviors such as ripping out their lashes or mascara application to their lash extensions (yes it happens) may not be great candidates for lash extensions.

The size of your clients eyes will also play a role in which lash mapping and style you should give them . The large, small or in-between eyes As well as clients eyelids – monolids and hooded eyelids have different considerations when styling these clients eyes. There is no one size fit all solution unfortunately, since all clients eye shapes are different.
A monolid is an eyelid shape that doesn’t have a crease. An eye that does have a crease is known as a double eyelid. Monolids are typically a facial feature of Asian people. However, other races may also have a monolid or an eyelid shape without a crease.
It’s important to recognize that beauty comes in many sizes and, yes, eyelid shapes. Monolids are beautiful and special. Keep reading to learn more about why they’re so unique, how you can embrace them, and what options you have if you want to have a crease.
THIS ILLUSTRATION EXPLAINS THAT IT IS IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER THE CLIENT’S EYES STRUCTURE WHEN CHOOSING THE MAPPING FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL CLIENT
Clients with folded eyelids and monolids inner corners should be mapped out slightly differently. As illustrated if the lash lengths are too short, like 7-8mm, then the skin will actually cover a large part of the client’s extensions.
The solution for this is to actually increase the length of the inner corner lashes, in order to balance out the client’s eyes and give the client an open-eyed look.
WHICH CURL TO USE
For monolids, it’s better to avoid using flat curls like J and B curls since the natural lash is already flat, this curl will simply weight down the lash and make the eye look smaller.
The orientation of your eyes – deep set, wide set, close set, your eye color.
The qualities of your clients natural lashes – their length, volume, color and curl.
Some clients will come see you with lashes so damaged that it’s simply not safe to apply eyelash extensions to them, and it’s best to just use growth serum until the lashes grow back and look healthy to withstand eyelash extensions again.
It’s also ideal to evaluate Your clients preferences – a girl next door, barely there mascara look vs. a dramatic look, for going out to a party . The best way to assess this is to ask your client, show me 3 - 4 lash sets you love and we can discuss if those sets are realistic for you.
