Choosing your Tweezers
First and foremost, you need to figure out the purpose of using lash extension tweezers. Whether it will be Classic, Volume, or Lash Fans making. For every procedure, you need a different pair to completely satisfy your needs. When it comes to isolation, you know that you have to ace this process, as isolation is essential for the whole procedure. We recommend using tweezers made of lightweight material so you do not feel numbness in your hands as you need your hands for the rest of the day to perform your job well. Uncomfortable heavy pair of tweezers is not good for your arm and overall performance, and thus, it’s important to pay attention to this factor before purchasing.
Important! When you’re holding the tweezers, make sure that your thumb and index finger are horizontally placed on the grip. Brace the tweezers with your middle finger for additional support. Don’t hold them too far from the tips, or it will be difficult to close them, as this way you’ll feel uncomfortable pretty quickly.
So you’ve made a purchase. What’s next? The tweezers are really good, they feel like a continuation of your arm and you are satisfied with the performance. In order to get the most from using experience, we offer some tips.
