Applying Lash Lift Rods
This week we will talk about one of the many parts of doing a Lash Lift. We will go over how to apply the eyelashes to the Lash Lift Rod. This is one of the most important parts of doing a Lash Lift because if you do not apply the eyelashes to the Lash Lift Rod correctly the Lash Lift will not look good. The eyelashes will not curl correctly or even worse they will perm crooked. So it is really important to get this step right!
Applying the eyelashes to the Lash Lift rod properly is very important. If the eyelashes are not applied to the Lash Lift correctly then the eyelashes will come off the Lash Lift rod and the eyelashes will not perm with the curl that they need to look great! The first thing that you need to do to make sure that the eyelashes stick the Lash Lift correctly is to choose the correct Lash Lift rod size. Lash Stuff has three different sizes of Lash Lift Rods. Lash Stuff's Lash Lift Rods are specielly designed to feel comfortable on the clients skin. These Lash Lift Rods can also create two different types of curls. A J-Curl and a C-Curl. The J-Curl looks more natural with a slight upward lift. The C-Curl is a more dramatic curl and is the most popular type of curl.
There is a small lash lift rod, a medium Lash Lift rod, and a large lash lift rod. The small lash lift rod is for short eyelashes, the medium Lash Lift rod is for longer eyelashes, and the large Lash Lift rod is for the longest eyelashes. Take each size Lash Lift rod and put it on the lash line and then take a mini stick and lightly press the eyelashes across the Lash Lift rod and see if they reach all the way across the Lash Lift rod. The eyelashes should reach all the way across the rod with the tips of the eyelashes barely over the other side of the rod. It is alright if the eyelash tips barely go over the edge of the rod. If the eyelashes are too short you will not get the curl that you are looking for. Also, if the eyelashes are too short then they will have a hard time sticking to the Lash Lift Rod and they will spring off the rod.
Applying Lash Lift Rod Glue
Once you find the right size of eyelash rod, apply Lash Lift rod glue to the back of the Lash Lift rod and place the Lash Lift rod right on the lash line. Make sure that if you are using Lash Stuff Lash Lift rods to have the colored tips pointing the right way. The colored part of the Lash Lift rods needs to both be pointing the same direction. Remember, if the colored tips are pointing left you will get a J Curl and if the colored tips are pointed right you will get a C curl. This is if you are at the clients head looking towards the client.
After you have placed the Lash Lift rods on the eyelash line, apply Lash Lift glue in sections across the entire Lash Lift rod. Do not apply Lash Lift Rod Glue across the entire Lash Lift Rod all at once. If you apply Lash Lift Rod Glue across the entire Lash Lift rod the Lash Lift Rod Glue will dry before you apply the eyelashes across the entire Lash Lift Rod. If the Lash Lift Rod Glue is dry then the eyelashes will not stick to the Lash Lift Rod. It is good to apply the Lash Lift Glue in three different sections or in 1/3 sections. Apply Lash Lift Rod Glue on 1/3 of the Lash Lift rod then take a mini stick and slowly press the eyelashes on the Lash Lift Rod with a slow upwards motion. Remember to go slow! If you press the eyelashes too fast on the Lash Lift Rod the eyelashes will spring off the Lash Lift Rod. Once you have finished the first section apply Lash Lift Rod Glue to the second section and repeat the same procedure. Then complete the third section and then complete the second eye.
One of the most common reasons that a Lash Lift does not get the correct curl is the Lash Stylist used too big of a Lash Lift Rod. If you use too big of a Lash Lift Rod the eyelashes will not go completely around the rod and will not create a strong curl. The second biggest reason that a Lash Lift does not get a good curl is the Lash Stylist used too much Lash Lift Rod Glue. This why it is important to apply glue to only 1/3 of the Lash Lift Rod at a time. If you apply glue to the whole rod the glue will dry and you will need to use more glue to get the eyelashes to stick to the rod. If you use too much glue the Lash Lift Creams will not penatrate the eyelash and create the strong curl.
While you are pressing the eyelashes on the Lash Lift Rod make sure the eyelashes are straight across the Lash Lift Rod. This will make sure the eyelashes are nice and straight and look great! That’s it! It is easy to apply eyelashes to the Lash Lift rods and get an awesome curl.
