Lash Artists - 4 Tips to Lash Faster

Lash artists take great pride in their work, well most of us do, and as such, we spend a great deal of time trying to create the perfect sets for our clients however time is money so it is important for us to try and work as quickly and efficiently as possible. Below I've listed four simple tips to make lashing quicker and easier without compromising on quality.

1. Have everything prepped for clients arriving.

Plan ahead of time and have everything you need set up and ready to go for your first client, also keep in mind how many clients you have that day and the time/supplies you need to redo your set-up between clients. Being prepared means you can start working as soon as your clients arrive and save time.

2. Lash the inner and outer corners first.

Most people find the inner and outer corners of the eyes the most difficult to lash so it's best to start here and get them out of the way first then you can move quickly and easily through the remaining lashes and finish your set in good time.

3. Use taping techniques.

Don't be afraid to use tape to get into those inner and outer lashes or to work through the natural lash layers, use a gentle tape or detack and it won't be uncomfortable for your clients. I have an ebook going more in-depth on layering and mapping techniques which you can pick up here if you're interested in learning more.

4. Make sure you are using the correct glue.

You need to make sure you are using a glue that matches your skill level, check that the curing time of your glue matches up with how quickly you can work if it cures too slowly you will need to hold the lash in place for longer and this will slow you down, use a glue that cures too quickly and it will already be cured by the time you try to place the extension on the natural lash which will mean you have a lot more lashes brushing off during the treatment that you'll need to redo and it could lead to some serious retention issues.

I hope you found these tips helpful and remember that it's all about making your life easier and working smarter not harder!
