Great Extensions - Great Expectations!
During this festive season, you hope that those lash looks you create will shine brighter than a diamond. But did you know that besides general inconveniences in winter (overdried skin, hair, and vitamin deficiency) it may affect natural lashes too? The lash shed is something that makes itself felt, resulting in retention that you may not be satisfied with. Not speaking of the lack of moisture, that affects Cyanoacrylate-based adhesives. Glue polymerization is in jeopardy due to that, as moisture is needed for the glue to dry adequately. Otherwise, the fumes may get in the way of your client's comfort and satisfying lash set. Or, even what’s worse, the stickies may appear. But we still expect to nail that winter eyelash extensions look, no matter what the weather conditions bring.

Winter eyelash extension care can be tricky. Thus, you and your client should act like one, and be a team, cause it not only takes two to tango, but also takes two to lash. Notify your client to be careful with makeup and face care, as some products may contain oils and other components that are not good for extensions. Also, lash fills that is something that should be done more often to maintain a beautiful look (precisely once in 2-3 weeks). This way, you’ll be able to mind the health of your client's natural lashes. Weather is a circumstance to be taken into consideration, we can’t do anything about that fact.
From your side, there are also some things that can be done. We understand, there is a lot on your plate, but you are the one to guide your customer through the whole process and further.
