Getting lash extensions could really transform your look from ordinary to simply stunning. It is no wonder then that most females are interested in extending their lashes. However, it can be quite tough for a lash tech when it comes to lash extensions. This is due to the fact that in order to get lash extensions done, the lash tech would need to use glue.
The confusing thing about using glue is that there are just so many options. It can be really stressful to decide the particular one which you would like to go for. However, it is important to choose carefully for various reasons. Having lash extensions done with the wrong glue can lead to a lot of allergies around your client’s eyes. This is due to the fact your eye and the region around it is a very sensitive part of the body. Therefore any wrong application in that area would the lash extensions looking not so pretty. How then can you decide what glue to choose?
1. The first thing you should consider as a lash tech when choosing a glue is the color of the glue. We would advise that you go for a glue color which is clear and a bit colorless. After all, no likes to make glue pasted on their eyes visible. If you want to fix lash extensions which are black in color, then you should go for a black glue. This is due to the fact that it is specially made for black lashes.
2. It is important to ask for details before choosing a glue. The producer of the glue, the ingredients which were used, and the date in which it is due to expire are just some of the things which you should make sure of before deciding to use a particular type of lash extensions. This is due to the fact that such details could help you to avoid causing problems for your client such as allergies and irritation which may range from minor to severe. For example, glues which are hypo allergic should be avoided.
3. Another thing which can signify how good a glue is can be seen in the quantity of liquid which comes with the glue. If the glue has a lot of liquid, then you can be assured that it will do the trick perfectly. However, if it has less, it could spell trouble. This is due to the fact that glue that has a lot of liquid would be more liking to dry up quickly. By drying up quickly, it reduces the chances of causing any sort of irritation around the eyes of the client.
4. Choosing the right glue could also depend on how you are. If you are an experienced technician you would most likely be confident in glues which are ultra-quick dry in nature. This is due to the fact that they are more confident about the work they do. This would, however, be different if you are a rookie lash tech. you would more inclined to use a glue which dries very slowly. This is due to this fact it leaves a lot of time to identify any error which was made and also adequate time to fix before the glue dries and becomes permanent. However, we would advise you to go for glues which dry up very fast. This would be especially important for clients who are sensitive to allergies.
Other factors which may affect your choice of glue may include volume lashes and the reaction which you intend to use when the glue is first used on the client. This is due to the fact that such reaction would give you a hint on how the further use of that glue would affect the client in the long run.
