Check out these eyelash extension supplies that will speed up your eyelash extension service.
This is the year that we hope that everything turns around. 2020 was so crazy for everyone to say the least. One of the hardest parts of 2020 was if you are in a career field that requires you to be in close contact with other people. With Covid restrictions in place in most states, professionals working in salons have had to come up with new ways to perform their services while still staying safe. Cosmetologists and estheticians that work in salons and apply eyelash extensions have had some of the hardest times. Lash Stylists are learning how to work and apply eyelash extension supplies differently with everything that is going on. This is why it is more important than ever to have the best eyelash extension supplies on hand. We have put together a list of the ten best eyelash extension supplies in 2021 to help professionals perform eyelash extension services and still make a living do it. These eyelash extension supplies are in no particular order but will help you become a better Lash Stylist.
Eyelash extension usually come in a tray with in a strip of eyelashes consisting of single eyelash extensions. The Lash Stylist will pick up each individual eyelash extension and then apply the single eyelash extension to a single eyelash. Sometimes a Lash Stylist will combine two or more eyelash extensions to create an eyelash extension fan. This technique in the eyelash extension community is called volume eyelash extensions. When a Lash Stylist applies Volume Eyelash Extensions it creates in the eyelashes a fuller more glamorous look that is very appealing and noticeable. Volume eyelash extensions are great and they look fabulous but the biggest drawback for Lash Stylists is that it takes a really long time for Lash Stylists to create and apply Volume Eyelash Extensions. One way to cut down on the amount of time it takes to apply Volume Eyelash Extensions is to buy Pre-Made Eyelash Extensions Fans. Pre-Made Eyelash Extension Fans are single eyelash extensions attached together to make an eyelash extension fan. To apply these Pre-Made Eyelash Extension Fans just pick up the fan just like you would a normal volume eyelash extension fan and then apply the fan to the natural eyelash. Using Pre-Made Eyelash Extension Fans will cut the volume application time down by half. This will make your clients much happier because they do not need to lie on the bed as long and the Lash Stylist will be able to perform the service quicker.
Classic eyelash extensions are round all the way around the lash. So when a lash stylist is applying normal eyelash extensions they are applying a round cylinder object to a another round cylinder object. As you can imaging due to both objects being round this is not easy to do. Flat Lash Ellipse Eyelash Extensions are flat or more precisely they have a small round divot in the base the eyelash extension. This round divot makes it easier to apply eyelash extensions by placing the round natural eyelash in the round divot in the Flat Lash Ellipse Eyelash Extension. It’s kind of like placing two puzzle pieces together. Because the two eyelashes fit together like an interlocking piece the Lash Stylist can apply the eyelash extension faster and the eyelash extension will stay on the natural eyelash longer increasing retention. Increased retention makes for happier clients.
We have already covered how applying volume eyelash extensions is a long and tedious task. Well here is another eyelash extension supply that will help Lash Stylists apply Volume Eyelash Extensions faster. Mink Perfect Volume Eyelash Extensions are kind of like a Pre-Made Volume Eyelash Extension fan but instead of coming in a pre-made fan these volume eyelash extensions come in a strip of multi length eyelash extensions ready to be picked up and made into a fan. The Lash Stylist just need to use a tweezer and pick up a small group of eyelash extensions and create a fan with them. Because there are multiple lengths the volume fan will look full and feathery. This process will help the Lash Stylist apply volume eyelash extension faster.
Lash Stylists spend a lot of time applying eyelash extensions but what regular people do not know if Lash Stylists spend a lot of time cleaning up after applying eyelash extensions. As part of the eyelash extension application process a Lash Stylist will drop small amounts of eyelash extension adhesive on a crystal or a jade stone. When an Lash Stylist is done applying eyelash extensions they need to clean the drops of glue off the surface. Cleaning these surfaces can be hard to do and take time. One way to make cleaning these surfaces easier is to use a Disposable Eyelash Extension Adhesive Sticker. To use the Disposable Eyelash Extension Adhesive Sticker just peel the back of the stick off and stick it to the surface that you are using to apply eyelash extension glue to. When the you are done applying eyelash extensions just peel the sticker off and throw it away. It is that simple!
When Lash Stylists are applying eyelash extensions every second counts so simple movements repeated over and over again can add up to a lot of time over the course of applying eyelash extensions. One of these motions that Lash Stylists repeat a lot is reaching down to get eyelash extensions off of a lash tile or similar object. The Lash Wrap helps eliminate this motion being repeated over and over again. When a Lash Stylist wears the Lash Wrap they place the Lash Wrap on their wrist and then place the eyelash extension strip on their wrist. Now all the Lash Stylist needs to do is pick the eyelash extensions off the wrist which is much easier and quicker. This helps speed up the time it takes to apply eyelash extensions and make the Lash Stylist’s job easier.
