Step 1. Make sure that there are no contraindications towards this procedure. Regardless whether you are conducting it on someone else or having it done on yourself. Lash extensions are not advisable for people suffering from conjunctivitis, allergic eye disease, nervous disorders that occur by uncontrolled pulling out eyelashes, eye dryness and overall sensitivity of the eyes. Lash extensions are a treatment that can worsen many of these problems.

Step 2. Carefully analyse what effects you want to achieve. Lash extension application must be preceded by a detailed interview during which the beautician gets to know what are the client’s preferences. The expectations must be adequate to the abilities. It is often necessary to give some pieces of advise on the method and desired effects. Sometimes, what we want, is impossible to obtain. Therefore, it is extremely important to make it clear prior to the procedure. Lash extensions are the art of compromise between the capabilities and expectations.

Step 3. Prepare for a long procedure that requires a lot of patience. Depending on the method you choose, applying eyelash extensions can last 2 -3 hours. It often happens that more demanding procedures require even more time.

Step 4. Secure the eye area. It must be properly prepared before the procedure. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, you must take them off. It is also very important to do a thorough make-up removal. Eyelids and lashes must be degreased using a fibre-free applicator soaked in a primer. All impurities have negative influence on the adhesiveness and durability of the results.

Step 5. If your natural eyelashes are very fair, dye them with henna before degreasing. You cannot allow lash extensions to be easily distinguished from your natural eyelashes. In this case it is necessary to even out the colour.

Step 6. Double check whether all necessary tools are prepared. Since there are quite a few of them, it is advisable that they were within your reach. Lash extensions do not require only tweezers, lashes and adhesive. Applicators, a pump to speed up drying of the glue, scissors and preparations for removing adhesive are also necessary. All of those items must be easy to reach whenever needed. Thanks to a god organisation of your workplace, there is not need to go away from the client or change your position.

Step 7. Only now you can proceed to applying lash extensions. Grab your tweezers and take the thinner part of the false eyelash. Dip it in glue in about 2/3 of length and attach to the natural lash. It can be done by adhering false eyelashes from the bottom, the top or from the side. It is very important to swipe the false eyelash along you natural one about three times to make sure that the adhesive is easily distributed. The distance from the skin must be max. 1 mm.

Step 8. With the use of previously prepared pump, you can speed up the drying process. Make sue that the glue is completely dry and continue the procedure. You must do exactly the same thing with each false eyelash. What is more, it is important that you adhere false eyelashes alternately on left and right eye.

    I had no problems with lash extensions, no allergies, no lashes plucked or broken but maybe because the procedur was done by a qualified professional. If you go to a random salon don’t be surprised if the effects are not satissfying.

    I used to have flase lashes but they looked nice and natural. Now I don’t want to spend so much money for such treatments. If you want such lashes to look perfect, you must go back to the salon every two weeks for touch-up.
