Thanks to the growing trend for low-maintenance yet high-impact looks, these days eyelash extensions have never been more popular. For women who want the benefits of full, fluttery eyelashes without having to fiddle around with false eyelashes, or apply multiple layers of mascara (which never gives the same effect, anyway), regular trips to the salon to have their eyelash extensions fitted or filled in, have become the norm.
This, of course, means that eyelash techs have to be prepared, with the best quality products – including professional eyelash glue that won’t budge, no matter what. For clients, the retention of their lashes is just as important as the look of them, and, as the number of salons offering this treatment continues to increase, clients are becoming fussier. No one, after all, wants to find their new eyelash extensions on their pillow when they wake up one morning, or have them fall off in the shower, so here are five things you need to know before buying eyelash extension glue:
While some glues will claim to be suitable for everyone, it’s important to note that clients with sensitive skin or eyes could react badly to glues that irritate their skin. For this reason, lash sensitive glue is a must-have for every salon: you might not use it all the time, but when a client comes in with sensitive eyes, you’ll be glad to have it on hand.
Even the best lash glue for extensions will fail to set properly if the humidity you’re working in is too high, or too low. The optimal humidity for eyelash glue is between 20C to 24C, so make sure your temperature’s right before you get started.
You probably know not to leave your eyelash glue in direct sunlight, but you don’t want to put it in the fridge, either: instead, choose a place where your glue will be kept in a steady temperature that’s neither too hot nor too cold, and which is away from direct light.
Applying lash extensions can be time-consuming, but the right glue can help reduce your drying time, and allow your client to get on with their day. Blink Eyelash Glue, for instance, is a fast-drying glue which will set quickly, without compromising the end result, or shortening the retention of the lash extensions.
Although the application of eyelash extensions is generally a relaxing experience for many clients, it’s worth remembering that eyelash glue does contain fumes, which can be unpleasant if you’re exposed to them for a long time, or are particularly sensitive to smells. Ez Glue, however, produces less fumes than many other brands of eyelash glue on the market, so it can be a good choice for these situations. If you’re spending the entire day working with eyelash glue, after all, you’re going to want it to smell as neutral as possible!
To make the treatment as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, it is important to choose high-quality adhesives for an eyelash extensions. Quality Beauty Store offers customers a variety of lash adhesive products by premium brands to ensure that you are able to find the perfect product for your eyelash application needs.
