Our amazing lashes…. I have many clients asking me about how lashes are applied. What lengths and thicknesses do you use. What on earth are ‘Russian Volume Lashes’!
Ok, if this is the first time reading about lash extensions I’ll briefly introduce you to their application, if you just want to read about Russian Volume Lashes scroll 🙂
- Step 1: You will need a patch test. A patch is required whether you have had lashes before or not. If you are visiting a new lash artist, you will need a patch test 🙂
- Step 2: Lash cleanse. Lashes should be thoroughly cleaned prior to any lash application with something we fondly refer to as ‘Lashpoo’. We use a soft cleansing brush to work the lashpoo into the lashes. This is to remove any oils and debris for lovely clean grease free lashes. The lashes are then rinsed with saline solution.
- Step 3: An eye pad is applied to each eye covering the lower lashes, leaving your upper lashes resting on top. Tape maybe used to help lift the skin slightly to help with lash isolation. The eyes should still be kept closed.
- Step 4: Application. Each lash is then individually isolated with tweezers held in one hand and then a single lash extension is picked up with the other. The single lash extension has the synthetic root has a small bead of adhesive scoped onto the end of the extension. The extension is fitted to the base of the isolated lash. This method should prevent any excess adhesive. This is continued until all lashes have an extension, creating a set of lash extensions.
