Wednesday Wink - 2 Pro Tips for Lash Isolation and Taping

In today's Wink, I'd like to share a couple of tips to help you during eyelash extensions application.

L Tweezers Pointing Down

Have you tried using an L tweezer pointed down in your left hand? With a curved or L shaped tweezer you’ll achieve precision beyond that which a straight angled tool can provide. Also, a slight pressure down onto the tape makes your isolation extra stable. Tape on its own may work well, while I love a gel pad too as the extra padding gives you more insurance against poking your client. You will want to practice first so your brain can adjust before jumping in with this technique. Once you try isolation with an angled tool you may never you back! Isolation - Eyelash Technique 1

Tape Up

To reveal layers of lashes, try taping up!
  • Using the low trauma tape, place a 2 inch strip onto the back of your sanitised hand, remove it, then repeat once more. Tear the tape long ways, set aside one strip on your sanitised station.
  • Now, think of the lash area in thirds, tape up one third at a time. Pictured is the middle third. Repeat the following steps for each section:
  1. Hold the strip at each end, sticky side toward you.
  2. Coming from underneath the lashes, try to catch just the very tips of the longest lashes onto tape pulling those lashes toward you.
  3. Anchor the two ends of tape ONLY. Make sure anchor allows your client's eyes to remain closed. The brow bone and bridge of the nose a good landing spots.
Taping Up - Eyelash Technique 2

Removal

  1. Gently peel up anchor closest to nose bridge. Hold onto that side.
  2. Very, very, very slowly pull tape off lashes toward the outside anchor. This helps the taped up lashes come free gently, one at a time. It also gives you a free hand to assist with a tool, if need be. If you prep your tape on your hand to reduce stickiness, as mentioned above, removal should be a breeze. (One strip can be used until anchors lose their effectiveness).
  3. Use a lash wand to brush lashes back into place and asses what you’ve created.
Have you tried either of techniques before? Let me know what you think in the comments below. :)

Hello Sara,
This is Romina I would like to be a lash expert and have a few question before I start any program one of them,
If I can practice 5 hours a week how long will it take to be able to perform a decent job? How many set of eyelashes will get me going?

how much of the material will I be wasting until I really learn? How many percentage ?

Approximately how long will it take to do a decent job if I can
Practise 5 hours a week ?
Approximately how much do I have to invest into it to start a home based business?
Do I need to work with an expert for awhile to start ?
Your answers will be highly appreciated.
Thank you,
Romina

Hi Michele, thank you for your question. To really know, I would need to see a photo. Please feel free to email me at sarahm@gladgirl.com Sometimes, it’s as simple as using a shorter lash to give you the density & fluff you desire. Look forward to hearing from you :)

I am a new lash tech and I practice at least an hour a day not including the friends I have come by for free lashes (so I can get client practice). The problem I am having is that when the client opens their eyes the lashes don’t look fluffy. Closed they look great but they open and are disappointed
What can I do? Is there some technique I can’t figure out. Thank you, Michele
