Why Are Eyelash Extensions So Popular?
Eyelash extensions are in high demand for their ability to add length and volume to natural lashes. Those who use eyelash extensions love that their eyes look more alert, beautiful, and younger while saving time and money on buying and applying makeup, like eyeliner or mascara. False lashes also open up the eyes, making them appear bigger and brighter and can even reshape them by fixing hooded eyes, small eyes, mono eyelids, and more.
Yes, eyelash extensions can change one’s appearance entirely, making wearers look younger (lush, curly lashes are a sign of youthfulness). The happier people are with their appearance, the more confidence they exude. It’s a win-win for all.
Another reason to love eyelash extensions is that they aren’t permanent. Wearers can change their colours and styles just as often because they’re attached to natural eyelashes using aspecial adhesive that naturally disintegrates in six to eight weeks. Those wishing to change their style quicker can have their lash technician safely remove the extensions. It’s almost as simple as changing the shade of your lipstick! Natural? Cat eye? Doll eye? Wearers can customize their look according to their unique style and personality as often as they’d like.
The Importance of Choosing Long-Lasting Lash Extension Products
Investing in various high-quality eye extension products is crucial for making your clients happy. For example, having custom sets on hand that you can easily adjust to your client’s needs and eye shapes is a significant perk for you and your customers. This simplicity and ease of use can help ensure repeat business.
But there’s so much more than just the quality of your lashes when providing exceptional service. There are other factors you should consider when choosing eyelash supplies, such as:
Quality of adhesive
Type of lashes
Tools and accessories
Eyelash adhesive has come a long way since the lash extension industry started, from viscosity to consistency, curing time, and drying time. So if you’re still waiting 24 hours before your lashes can get wet, it’s time to get familiar with the latest and greatest eyelash adhesives.
First, understand that drying time is different from curing time. Drying time refers to the initial phase of adhering when the glue is no longer wet and typically lasts for a few seconds. Curing time is when the adhesion process is complete, which can take up to a few hours. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing the highest-quality eyelash glue:
Fast drying vs slow drying: Fast-drying adhesives set faster, typically within 1 - 2 seconds. Experienced lash stylists usually prefer fast-drying glue as it allows them to finish a full lash set much quicker. Slow-drying adhesives, on the other hand, can take 5+ seconds to set, making them ideal for beginner stylists.
Adhesion strength: The right adhesive can keep lash extensions in place for three to eight weeks. When choosing your lash glue, use PMMA products, which strengthen and secure the bond between the natural lashes and extensions.
Colour: While black hues are generally more popular, it’s beneficial to have both black and clear on hand for clients who may be allergic to the carbon black element or those with sensitive skin.
Types of Lashes
There are three primary types of lash extensions — silk, synthetic, and mink. At Origins Lash Pro, we use only high-quality, 100% synthetic silk, cruelty-free, dark true black for the ultimate finish eyelashes in a wide array of diameters, lengths, and curls.
Pro tip: Choosing the right eyelash curl for your clients is essential, as this sets the overall appearance of their eyes and enhances their natural eye shape. Since curls aren’t a one-size-fits-all matter, know the style you’re going for and adjust it according to your client’s natural lash angle, eye shape, and characteristics.
We also carry lash artistry-focused products like pre-made fans, classic lash trays, volume lash trays, and over 50 different lash colours so you can create customized lash extension sets for all your clients.
