Not all mistakes are created equal, some are easy to undo, some require a little more problem-solving. Here is a list of how to repair three of the more common mistakes we make in our service.
Scene 1: When Lower Lashes Come Undone
Whether you are using tape, gel patches or another method, anchoring of bottom lashes is one of the most important elements of service safety. If lashes come unanchored, it’s important you stop your process to anchor them back down. First, turn on a fan to ensure lashes are dry before proceeding since you may need your client to open their eyes. Don't try to reuse what’s not working. Replace tape with new secure attachment and then proceed with your service.
Scene 2: When Lashes Get Stuck to the Bottom
At the end of a lash session, you may notice a lash is stuck to the bottom. Even if you were very careful during set up, this can happen. Gently pull lashes apart – most of the time they will separate. If not, with clients eyes closed, gently use tools to disconnect the lashes. Breathe and go slow –there is no rush. Your energy will keep the client calm as well.
Scene 3: When You Have Unbalanced Lashes & Insecure Bonding
Nothing is a faster road to solving this issue than making sure you’ve invested in quality education and/or a mentor. When it comes to seeing ourselves and our habits clearly, often it takes someone to watch us go through our habitual actions to identify the main issue causing the problem.
However, this happens to the best of us. My recommendation when a lash is off balance or not bonded securely at the bottom is to peel it off the natural hair and give it another go. Do not try to add adhesive or another lash to make is better because this is unsafe. Gel remover should be a last resort as to not get remover on the entire set of lashes.
