The equipment of an eyelash extension technician

25 July 2019

Eyelash extension is the new beauty trend that keep going bigger and bigger worldwide. This technique gives volume and length to the lashes in a very natural way. If you are an eyelash extensions esthetician, know that you will need to be well equipped to better satisfy your customers’ needs, but above all, to face the competition.

Eyelash Extension Tweezers

Eyelash extension tongs are one of the most important tools for the eyelash extension beautician. They must be precise, thin, made of stainless steel and antimagnetic. To avoid limiting your possibilities, and especially to make your life easier, get at least the following types of pliers: curved pliers type S (to insulate the lashes with a curvature), straight pliers type 1 (to be used when applying the extension), pliers type F (the compromise between a straight pliers and a curved pliers), Extra Curve pliers type S + (the essential to easily isolate the lash that receives an extension), pliers type X.

Good quality eyelash extensions

For better results, it is important to use good quality extensions. You should choose your eyelash extensions carefully according to your customers’ goals and expectations. Those extensions will be the proof of your professionalism and above all of the attention you pay to your customers. Good quality eyelash extensions are those that effectively retain their curves and do not bend easily while maintaining a very natural look.

An eyelash brush

Another essential tool for the professional eyelash extension equipment is the eyelash brush. It separates the lashes, which makes it easier to apply extensions later on. When you apply adhesive on eyelashes that are not well separated, it can lead to disaster.

An eye make-up remover

Before applying eyelash extensions, it is important that natural eyelashes are clean. To make sure, you need to use a special eye makeup remover. A suitable product is essential because the skin around the eyes is particularly sensitive. It is important to remember that if oil or mascara remains on the lashes before application, the glue used for extensions will not cure.

Patches for eyelash extensions

Patches are essential for the practice of eyelash extension. They allow you to isolate the lower lashes while protecting the lower eyelids. Above all, you should choose models that adapt to any shape of the eyes. They are easier to apply and save you a lot of time.

An adhesive to maintain lash extensions

A special glue is used to hold the extensions in place. But you guessed it, not all glues are equal. Choose your glue according to its setting time and price. The faster the glue sets, the better it is. For the price, you can get a good quality glue from 80 euros per 5 ml. It should be remembered that the performance of an adhesive also depends on the environment in which it is used.
