LASH TIP #3 YOU CAN USE A GLUE AID

The glue aid can help you when your lash fans seem to be closing instead of remaining open and it will speed up your adhesive if you are working with a fairly slow one.

Just apply the glue aid to the strip of the lashes before you start working and making fans. It will surely speed up the whole process and make the lashes soft and easier to work with.

LASH TIP #4 USE FAST-DRYING ADHESIVE

Normally you need to have an adhesive that is at least 1 second (if not 0.05 sec)

The reason for this is if you actually have an adhesive that is too slow then it will slow you down as well tremendously.

A lot of lash artists tend to continue using 2-sec drying time adhesive even after their timing has improved just because that's where they feel most comfortable.

After you've been a lash artist for at least 6 months, if you have a lot of clients a week, your timing should improve dramatically especially if you are doing volume more often to your clients, you should switch to 0.05 to 1 sec drying time adhesive.

Also, if you use an adhesive that is too slow, your fans are going to close and you're going to get frustrated because you’re trying to apply that fan on the natural lash and the fan is closing on you, it is taking longer to dry.

LASH TIP #5 PRACTICE ON A MANNEQUIN AND A SPONGE

Ensure that you practice on a lash mannequin or a sponge. If you really want to become faster or improve your speed, practice is the key!

You need to practice the micro-movements of the application, the isolation, and the fan making. If you do this every day for an hour or 2 it will make a huge difference in your speed.

LASH TIP #6 YOU CAN USE EASY FAN LASHES

Easy fan volume lashes are designed for lash artists who want to speed up the process of creating a custom volume lash set. The fan will not separate at the bottom thanks to the unique adhesive label strip, allowing you to create the perfect fan in seconds.

When using easy fans, there is some criticism because the base is square; however, there is a technique to fix this.

If you do not like the square base on the easy fan, what you could do is have a glue cup with a slit. Simply slip the base of the fan into it (the slit) after dipping the lash in the glue or before, and it will ensure that it is no longer square.

LASH TIP #7 USE EYELASH TAPING

When working on the inner corners, use tape to separate lower lashes as you work with them since it will help you visualize the lashes and you will spend much less time looking for the exact lashes to put the extension on, which will save you time and make a big difference in your timing.

LASH TIP #8 USE LASH MAPS

It is important as a beginner especially if you are not used to different lash curls, lengths, styles that you're trying on your clients to do lash mapping.

Also, it's a lot easier and removes a lot of the guesswork from your set, especially if you're getting lost, forgetting, or thinking about a lot of things. This helps a lot and allows you to work faster.

CONCLUSION

Depending on how long and what kind of eyelash set you use, all of these tips should save you at least 20 to 45 minutes. If you have 5 clients every day, it might save you at least 2 hours, if not 1.

If properly cared for, volume lashes, like all lash extensions, should last as long as your natural lash cycle. It normally takes 4 to 6 weeks for this to happen. To keep the lashes from seeming patchy as they grow out, fill in every 2 to 3 weeks is recommended.
