What should I charge for my services?
Pricing is a big part of what clients use to determine if they are going to choose your service. Your area you work in is a big determining factor on how much you can charge. If you charge too much, the client could go to a stylist who charges less. If you charge too little, the client will think you provide cheap work. Look at what other stylists are charging in your area. The best advice is to determine what price is right for your area and what people are willing to pay.
Do you have a brow lamination product? Can the lash lift be used as a brow lamination product?
At this time the only way to perform brow laminations is the same creams as a lash lift. Brow Lamination products currently on the market are using the same creams as a Lash Lift and just calling them them Brow Lamination cream. We do not believe this is a safe procedure.

Why does Lash Stuff not carry real mink eyelash extensions?
Real mink eyelash extensions come from mink animals usually kept in mink farms. Studies have shown that there is a higher risk of having a negative reaction to real animal hair such as mink. Real mink hair may pose some health risks if the hair was not sanitized properly, which is almost impossible to verify. Also, real mink eyelash extensions lose it's curl quickly and may crimp while on the client's lashes. For these reasons Lash Stuff feels that it is in the best interest of the Lash Stylist and client to not offer real mink eyelash extensions.
How are eyelash extensions categorized?
Eyelash extensions are sold with four categories. Lash material, curl type, lash thickness, lash length . An example is (Mink C-curl .20 8mm). .25 is our thickest lash and should be used on people with sturdy/strong eyelashes. .15 is our thinnest lash and is used on people with thin or weaker lashes. .15 is also lighter and more natural looking. 8mm is our shortest lash and is more natural looking. 16mm is our longest lash and gives the most "bling" to a client. D-curl has a stronger curl than C-curl. Lash Stuff sells synthetic mink and silk lashes. Synthetic lashes look and feel like real silk and mink but are easier to apply and they do not lose their curl. Synthetic lashes are the most commonly used type of eyelash extensions in the U.S.
What is the difference between eyelash extension adhesives?
Eyelash extension adhesive or glue comes with three types of qualities 1) The longevity of the glue (how long the glue will hold an eyelash extension), 2) the sensitivity of the glue (how much fumes a glue has) 3) How fast the glue dries. The stronger the glue is the stronger the fumes will be and the quicker it will dry. One thing to look for in glue is to make sure it does not have formaldehyde in it. Many people are allergic to formaldehyde. Lash Stuff products do not contain formaldehyde.
How long is eyelash extension adhesive good for?
Eyelash extension adhesive is good for a maximum of 60 days once the bottle is opened. This 60 day time period is greatly dependent on the care that is given to the adhesive and is the best case scenario. Adhesive longevity can be increased by shaking the adhesive on a daily basis, opening the adhesive as little as possible, keeping the adhesive out of direct sun light, keeping the adhesive in a normal room temperature environment, and closing the bottle as soon as possible after use. Once adhesive gets closer to the 60 day mark the consistency of the adhesive will become thicker and stringy and this is a sign that it is time to get new adhesive.
My client has sensitive eyes what should I do?
The first time you meet with a client ask them if their eyes water easily or if they know if their eyes are sensitive. Many people do not know if they have sensitive eyes until they get Eyelash Extensions. If you do not know if a client has sensitive eyes start with the strongest adhesive and if the client says their eyes are bothered switch to the sensitive adhesive. To be safe always use latex free eye tape. Never let the adhesive touch the clients skin.

Why are the eyelashes not sticking on the lash lift rod?
There are a few reasons that the eyelashes may not be sticking on the lash lift rod when performing a lash lift. One, is that you may be using too large of a lash lift rod. The eyelashes need to lay completely over the rod in order for the eyelashes to get a strong curl. It is alright if the eyelashes are hanging slightly over the rod.
Two, is you may be applying glue to the entire lash lift rod instead of applying the lash lift glue to small sections at a time. When you apply lash lift glue to the entire rod at once the glue will dry before you get the eyelashes on the rod. Apply lash lift glue to about one third of the lash lift rod at a time then slowly apply the lashes with a mini stick.
