Enough's enough, find your Curl
Evaluate the client’s eye shape at first. Whether the eyes are round, or almond, wide or close, there are some lash extensions styles that won’t match and on the contrary, will look flawlessly exactly on your client. The style also matters, as for volume, individual or hybrid require a different approach.
We recommend making notes for the future in order not to forget the desired look your client regularly prefers. Thus, you can avoid such unpleasant situations as trying to remember things with a customer already waiting to proceed. For your convenience, Stacy Lash came out with already-mapped lash stylesa and suitable lash curls that come along with our eye pads.
Isolation? Yes, Sir!
Have a hard time fighting with “stickies”? Let’s find out why it’s happening in the first place. When an excessive amount of glue was used, 3 or more natural lashes were interlocked with one single extension, forming stickies, and it’s no good for a perfect lash set. What should be done here? Try to use less adhesive, so it could dry properly and within comfortable time limits. Also, make sure to check that an extension that you just placed on natural lashes has a stable and firm bond before proceeding further.
