HOW TO DO WISPY LASH EXTENSIONS?

I like to apply the spikes 2 wisps to 1-2-3. Then I fill them in with the same order. I generally like to do the middle last because it’s much easier and has easier visibility generally.

Some tips for beginners that you will surely learn so much. Wispy lashes will eventually cater to so many clients and you’ll surely earn so much money. It is very hard to master without the right training, you need to practice at least on 20-30 clients to start feeling comfortable with the look.

 

STEP #1 

It is very important to wash or clean the lashes before you start your lash application to remove any oil and makeup that will cause retention issues. Apply primer to the lashes of your clients as a pre-treatment for eyelash extensions to ensure better retention.

STEP #2 

Take your time when putting on lash patches. Ask the client if they feel any pinching or discomfort when they close their eyes. While their eyes are closed, gently lift the tape or pads to readjust.

STEP #3

I like to apply the wisps first, before filling up the lash base with the fans. This is a personal preference, but I find it is much easier for a beginner because it’s a complicated lash look. By mapping out all the lash wisps first it makes everything much easier, you can think of it as laying out the foundation before building a house.

When working with wispy lashes and direction, be very careful. Because the wisps are longer, if you make a mistake in this step, it will be quite visible.

It will be helpful if you gently direct the lash wisps with your tweezers as you place them, making sure they are all at 90 degrees from the natural lashes.

Place the wisps from the bottom up to ensure that your client's lashes last as long as possible. The only exception is when the lash grows toward the top, in which case the lash can be applied from the bottom. Never apply extensions on the side.

In classic sets, it can look good, but never in volume mega volume sets. It is because the density of the lashes in the base will take over and the wisp will just disappear.

wispy lash extensions before and after

Wispy eyelashes include a variety of lashing techniques, lash types, and forms, it's best described as lashing freestyle. Lashing professionals create a spikey appearance with uneven eyelash extensions by using varied lash lengths that gradually rise and fall over the eyes. This is what gives most lash artists difficulty when it comes to wispy eyelash extension mapping.

WISPY LASH MAPPING

The bottom line of how to achieve this wispy eyelash extension look is simply mastering the art of lash mapping. There are various wispy lash mapping styles that you can do to achieve the wispy effect look. It’s a unique way of planning as to which lash goes where.

HOW DO YOU MAP WISPY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

Start by identifying high spots, which will be where the spikes will be placed. This way, you'll be able to imagine the appearance you want right from the start. If your client doesn't have any special requests, we don't recommend using the same length lashes for all of the spikey tips. 

Start with an 11-12mm spike for the first one, then move up to 13-14mm for the second one, and finally 16mm for the final one. The highest point of the eye can be in the middle or near the outer corner. ( We do have a FULL ONLINE course on wispy lashes, where we teach you this in-depth ) If you are interested in our Online Wispy Training Course, please click here.

Wispy Set Mapping

The first will widen the eyes, while the second will give it a feathered appearance. Which one you choose is totally determined by the client's preferences and the form of their eyes.

So the wispy lashes / Kim K lashes are applied using specific wispy lashes mapping, which gives that wispy, uneven lash line. This type of styling is great for girls that love to wear a lot of makeup and have a very bright outgoing personality.

For exceptional events, we recommend the Kim K style / wispy lashes. This look can definitely be adjusted to fit a more low-key personality or lifestyle, by making it a shorter length or making the contrast between the wisps a little less pronounced. This style can also be reproduced in classic as well as hybrid styles for girls that want a more low-key look.

WHY DO WE HAVE TO DRAW DOTS ON THE EYELIDS?

Why do we have to draw dots on the eyelid

  1. Although you already have mapping on your tape, I would highly recommend drawing dots on the eyelids, as well. In fact, when you move the tape or remove the patches in the middle of the lash set, your mapping can easily get lost.
  1. When you are done with the lash set and start removing the tapes or patches, the dot will still be there to check if everything is symmetrical and even once the client opens her eyes.
  1. The tendency of the tapes and patches to move during the procedure of lash extensions makes them not the most reliable place to put the mapping. Since tape and patches stretch, the mapping can easily be ruined. Having a backup system ( drawn dots indicating the mapping ) this system will allow for a helpful way to stick to the original mapping.

HOW TO CORRECT EYE ASYMMETRY WITH WISPY LASHES?

The tip to correct the asymmetry, if for example the left eye is visually lowered than the right eye, you can make the lengths on the left eye used for the wisps 2-3 mm longer than the right eye. This will end up correcting the asymmetry and visually lift up the left eye to the same level as the right eye.

WISPY LASH EXTENSIONS CARE

Wispy lash extensions necessitate extra attention and are time-consuming to maintain. To ensure that the lashes last longer and are in good condition, gentle care is required. Client retention and lash artist reputation are both dependent on effective aftercare.

  • Take care of your wispy lashes. Avoid rubbing or pulling them.
  • Keep the extensions dry for 4 to 6 hours after the lash appointment.
  • All oil-based products should be kept away from the lashes. The oil will cause the adhesive to break down, which will lead to lash extension loss.
  • No lash perming!
  • No saunas, facials, or swimming in the pool within 4-6 hours of lash application.
  • Avoid poking your head into the oven if you're baking. It's capable of burning your extensions! Turn your head away from the oven when putting something in or taking something out.
  • Instead of trying to remove the wispy lashes on your own, book an appointment with your lash artist.
  • After getting wispy eyelashes, brush your lashes on a daily basis. Brushing takes care of the majority of issues. Brush your lashes gently if you see anything improper with them.
