Lash Extension Tutorial: How To Work With Eyelash Layers

What are lash layers? Why is it essential to be able to work with them in an organized way? What are the multiple layers of eyelashes?

As a lash artist, we all know that there are three eyelash layers (top, middle, and bottom). The lash lengths, diameters, and fan widths will determine the final look of the lashes.

In this blog, you will learn about lashing in layers, working through the many eyelash layers, sequence to work with rows, placing lash fans while working, and more about it, but first, let's get to know about the lash row.

WHAT IS LASH ROW?

Most clients typically have 1 to 4 layers or rows, and some clients will have more others have less depending on the thickness of their natural lashes. It's essential as a lash artist to work with rows because it will save you more time, especially when working on complex sets like volume and mega volume, and can save you time isolating.

FACTORS WHEN WORKING ON LASH ROWS

The first important factor on why you should know how to work with lash rows is to avoid stickies, which will make your work look messy and unclear, so isolating whichever section you're working on will ensure that it doesn't happen. The second factor you should always be aware of is the lash direction.

When you're doing any set, it's essential to be aware of the direction, so working systematically in layers will ensure that your lash direction looks symmetrical. It seems like going in the same direction. Lash rows are essential in volume and mega volume lashes.

WHAT SEQUENCE TO WORK WITH LASH ROWS?

#1 THE EXPRESS TECHNIQUE

You can use this technique when you're on a short schedule. This technique is perfect whether you have clients booked after another or your client pressed on time!

This technique is suitable for lash sets like classic or light volume. It will take one and a half hours to 1 hour and 45 mins. With this technique, you can start with the inner and outer corners of lashes, fill one after the other like the inner corner, outer corner, inner corner, followed by the midline.

You need to fill it as much as you can for the middle line.

REMEMBER: The most important thing is to ensure you fill the inner and outer corners to look like a complete full lash set.

The inner corners are the most challenging area for most lash artists. It is a technique that advanced lash artists usually use because inner corners are relatively easy for them. They don't mind finishing with inner corners.

LASH PLACEMENT WHILE WORKING WITH EYELASH ROWS

The bottom lash row is furthest away from the lash artist and closest to the client. On that lash row, it's essential to place your lash fan on the top, not on the bottom.

Where do you put lash fans?

If you placed it on the bottom, you could have had a drooping lash situation where the extension droops into the client's eyes. To avoid this, it's best to always place the fan on the top of the client's natural lash.

CONCLUSION

Working with layers and rows allows you to experiment with various lengths and curls, resulting in stunning lash sets! The lash layering technique can be challenging and complicated, especially if you're starting as a lash artist. Even professional lash artists may find it difficult to reach the bottom eyelash layers, so most of them use the back taping technique to make their work more efficient.
