Greetings. I’m Leili Abdi. I’m a cosmetic expert and instructor specializing in false lashes and eyelash extensions. I want to talk to you about eyelash extensions.
These days, there are two main categories for eyelash extensions. One of the methods is called classic false lash extension and then there’s the volume method. During the classic eyelash extension or single lash extension, one false lash is attached exactly on top of the natural eyelash. This is called classic or single lash extension.
False lash volume extensions are implemented with different methods. Either you can use the extensions designed by the extension artist, which is typically called a fan, or you can use premade volume lashes instead of fans. There are also fans with a round root. The best and most beautiful type of volume extension is the type of fan designed by the extension artist. Designing fans requires expertise and to design them you must master these methods first.
The difference between single lash extensions and volume lashes is in their density and volume. Using classic lash extension, you can only extend the existing eyelashes in length. This isn’t the case with volume extensions. In this case, you will use 2D, 3D, or even 4D eyelashes. In some cases, you can even use mega volume false lashes. Mega volume is a different method in comparison with Russian and classic volumes. Mega volumes contain a large number of false lashes and can add a significant volume to your natural eyelashes. To have a correct fan for your false volume extension, stay with me while I show you the easiest way to design them.
First, let’s talk a bit about the correct way of holding pincers. The way you hold a pincer depends somewhat on the form of your hand. There’s no rule for who can work with which type of pincer, be it long, short, or round-headed. Each person should choose their pincer based on the type of eyelash they are working with. The important factor is that you should be able to use your pincer easily. When you’re using your pincer, keep in mind that the pincer is placed vertically on the eyelashes.
When using your pincer, remember to use your middle finger to push the pincer close when you want to pick the false lashes. Move the pincer around in a relaxed manner and move it as if working with a hook. I’m choosing the number of false lashes I want from the first line. Pull it half way off gently and then pick them up. Put the false lashes back on the palette and touch the root of the false lashes gently with the tip of your pincer. Don’t push them too hard because they could separate and if you don’t push enough, the will be very close to each other. When creating a fan, you must separate all strands equally. What you see here is a good fan design.
One of the most important factors in creating the fan is to pick them off the palette in an orderly and gentle manner. This should be done such that the fan design doesn’t change. Now smear the root of the false lashes inside the glue. The important point when working with the glue is that you should not insert the root in the side of the top of the glue. This is because glue tends to oxidize in contact with oxygen. Instead, you will dip the root in the middle of the glue gently and pull it out again. Notice that there’s no bubbles or other excesses at the root of the extension.
Bring the fan and attach it to the client’s eyelashes. Notice how I pull the false lashes off the palette. Put the false lashes on the palette again and use the closed tip of the pincer to open the strands equally. Keep in mind that the most important part of your lash extension is designing these fans. If you think you’ve picked too many strands, you can just separate and remove them. Remember the only thing that matters in this process is the quality of the fan you design. The space between all strands should be equal. After separating the strands, hold the fan with the pincer and pull it off the palette. Now dip the root in the glue. Make sure to target exactly the middle of the glue only. Don’t dip the root too deep in the glue. f you feel like you’ve added too much glue, rub the tip on the cloth or tissue close at hand to remove the excess material. Now you can put the false lashes on the natural eyelash of the client.
