...plus using the right quantity of glue.
I’m all for women supporting each other, so this is not intended to bash other lash techs, however, it’s SO important to check out their previous work, and ask the right questions before getting lash extensions.
Earlier this week a new lady came to see me wanting the same extensions she had on already.
From what I could tell they were a 0.25 thickness, and 15 or 16mm length. I don’t carry 0.25 thickness because of the damage they can cause natural lashes and I rarely even use 0.2 these days. Most of my lashes use 0.15 thickness, and around 13-14mm length.
Because it keeps the natural lash healthy and that is the #1 most important thing about lash extensions.
I completed this lady’s fill but with much lighter, shorter lashes and she is coming back in 3 weeks for a full removal and new set.
On the first picture you can see that her lash extensions are 3-4x the length of her natural lash and it’s causing so much damage! Lash extensions should double the natural lash length, no more!
On the second picture you can see there is simply too much glue. The glue, plus the extension is again 3-4x the thickness of her natural lash. This strain on the lash will make them fall out or break.
Finally, the third picture is of one of my existing clients, 4 weeks since a fill. The lashes are straight, healthy and no large clumps of glue in sight!
Before you get lash extension, do your research, as not all techs are the same!
A good lash tech has the health of your natural lash as their top priority!
