EYELASH EXTENSION APPLICATION

 

NEW SET

 

STEP 1: CLEANSE

The purpose of cleansing is to ensure the natural lashes are free of oil, dirt, protein and residue. Any residue on the natural lashes will prevent the adhesive from bonding properly, therefore can result in poor retention. Have the client remove their eye make up.

 

STEP 2: CONSULT

Always to listen and communicate with the client. It is important to understand the clients’ expectations and provide a professional recommendation. Always confirm style/design an obtain verbal consent before proceeding with the appointment.

 

STEP 3: WALKTHROUGH

Some clients may have never had eyelash extensions before, so the appointment can be quite intimidating. Walking the client through the appointment will put them at ease.

 

STEP 4: HAND PREPARATION

Hands must be washed with warm water and soap for 20 seconds and sanitized before beginning an appointment. Gloves are optional but are not a replacement for washing hands.

 

STEP 5: LOWER LASH PREPARATION

The purpose of taping down the lower lashes is to ensure that they do not get glued to the top lashes. An eye pad and/or tape is used to secure the lower lashes.

 

STEP 6: PRIME NATURAL LASHES AND/OR CLEANSE

Priming the natural lashes with lash primer and/or saline solution will remove all the residue, allowing the extension and adhesive to bond to the natural lash properly. Alternatively, an oil free cleanser can be used to cleanse the lower lashes BEFORE the application on the eye pad and tape.

 

STEP 7: LASH MAP

Sectioning out the lash line and labelling each section will ensure that both eyes are symmetrical – it eliminates all “guess work”.

 

STEP 8: EXTENSION APPLICATION

Extensions should only be applied to teenager and adult lashes. It should be one extension to one natural lash.

 

STEP 9: LASH CHECK

Check each natural lash and extension to ensure that nothing is stuck together. It should be one extension to one natural lash.

 

STEP 10: EYE PAD AND/OR TAPE REMOVAL

All layers of tape and eye pad must be removed individually to prevent ripping out the lower lashes.

 

STEP 11: NANO MIST

Mist the lashes for a total of 2 minutes to ensure that the adhesive is cured properly. Ensure to move side to side quickly and mist at a distance where the droplets do no collect on the lashes. The goal is to provide enough moisture for the adhesive to turn from a liquid to a solid – not to soak the lashes. Soaking the lashes can cause blooming, resulting in the adhesive turning white. Retention can also be affected as too much moisture can cause the adhesive to form crack bonds.

 

STEP 12: CLEANSE

Cleanse the lashes 5 minutes afrer the appointment to remove any residue from the adhesive curing process. Residue from curing can cause sensitivities.

 

STEP 13: CLIENT CHECK

Ask the client to blink hard a few times to ensure that they are not experiencing any discomfort. Remove and fix any extensions that cause discomfort.
