1. Practice proper isolation EVERY time
2. NEVER use longer than a 9mm length on the inner corner
We all know that the inner corner lashes are often the shortest, thinnest and most delicate lashes on the lash line. It is important to always keep those lashes safe and free of damage. Always aim to lash them with a 9mm of shorter. Anything over 9mm is almost ALWAYS too heavy and long for an inner corner lash to handle safely. Lashing the inner corner lashes with shorter lengths also helps styling look better.
3. Avoid using lengths over 15mm in your sets
Any length over 15mm is almost ALWAYS too heavy for any natural lash. We know that longer lengths equal heavier weights. Super long extensions can cause a lot of stress on the natural lash and weigh the natural lashes down over time. This can cause permanent damage to the hair follicles. It is also hard to get super dense, thick sets using long lengths because the longer length you use, the smaller you have to make your fans.
4. Do not use too much glue
Using too much glue can make the lash extensions feel very heavy and uncomfortable. It is also very easy to get stickies and poor isolation often comes hand in hand with using too much glue. You do not need to use excessive amounts of glue to get good retention.
5. Calculate and measure the proper weights that each client can handle
Every natural lash is different and what works on one client may not be ideal for the next client. Make sure you measure and calculate the appropriate lengths and weights for each client and each section of the natural lash line. Check out our previous blog post on understanding lash weights and conversions here. If you know the weights and lengths of extensions are safe for your client, you will have a much easier time making sure there is no damage done.
