1, 2, or 3 hours, how long do you take to complete a full lash set? Are you happy with that number?
Generally, we don’t recommend rushing to complete a set. Take your time and make sure you lash properly - the end result will always be better. However, there are ways you can optimize your workflow and speed up without having to rush. Here’s 4 ways:
1. Be organized
Dedicate a space for lashes extension, and organize your equipment in an accessible way, so it's easy for you to save precious time preparing for each customer and be productive all day long.
Additionally, make sure you don’t have to move your eyes around too much when lashing. For example, if you have your lash fans on your left side, your glue on your right side, then your client in front of you, you will need to move your eyes constantly between 3 places that are far from each other. Feels like just a second, but overall it takes up tons of time that may surprise you. Trust me!
Consider sticking the lash strips on your hand and wearing the glue ring on the same hand. Your eyes will not have to move too far each time you put another lash on
2. Lash in sequence
Your lash time will increase significantly if you keep having to look for the where to lash next. Instead of lashing in no particular order, consider doing this sequence:
- Lash the outer edge the left eye
- Move to the outer edge of the right eye
- Alternate between two eyes and lash toward the inner corner.
You’ll always know where you left off every time you pick up a new lash extension. This will save a lot of time in the long run.
3. Do the hardest part first
At the beginning of the appointment, when your mind and body are still not tired, consider finding and lashing all the hardest lashes first. Then move back to lashing in sequence.
You don’t want to be lashing the hardest part when you are tired, or else you'll fall asleep
4. Use premade fans
