Q: How do I stop my volume fans from collapsing when I place them onto the natural lash?

A: There are a couple reasons why your fans may be collapsing so lets chat about them -

  • ๏ปฟThe number one factor that causes this issue is ๐ญ๐จ๐จ ๐ฆ๐ฎ๐œ๐ก ๐š๐๐ก๐ž๐ฌ๐ข๐ฏ๐ž. You should only be dipping about 1-2mm of your fan into adhesive, anything more than than will likely cause your fan to close up. โฃโฃ

With slower drying adhesives you run the risk of the adhesive not drying fast enough to keep the lashes in place. As well, if your humidity is super off then the adhesive can become much slower drying and cause this same issue.โฃโฃ

The rule of thumb is to hold the extension in place for about 1-2 seconds to ensure that itโ€™s going to stay properly in place and not close up. โฃโฃ

More specifically, not have a pair of tweezers with a large enough grip spot. If you cannot properly grip the entire fan with your tweezers the fan will likely close up. โฃโฃ
