Lash Q&A: Lash Extensions on Curly Corner Lashes

Posted in: Uncategorized

Question: I had a client today with super curly inner and outer corners. The rest were straight. What is the best way to handle this?

How to lash someone with super curly inner or outers or someone with all curly lashes in general: Sometimes using a heated eyelash curler can soften the curls so they are easier to lash. I do not do this. I do my best to isolate and SIMPLY LASH those lashes. Perfect isolation is extremely necessary as always but especially important here to make sure the glue is completely dry before moving on to the next lash. 

Instead of just placing the extension on the natural lash, I also wrap the base of the extension around the natural lash, like they are hugging each other in a warm lashy embrace. This will help create more bonding area so the retention is optimal.

If it’s an inner or outer corner only, you can use a bit of tape on the eyelid and use it to pull the eyelid UP toward the brow a bit or pull it OUT away from the face to spread the inner corners out. Make sure you aren’t opening the eye if you use tape to adjust the eyelid. Make sure those babies are shut.

Do not overburden the natural lash. I would definitely make sure the length and thickness are NOT more than double that of the natural lash to preserve lash health. I recommend doing your best not to panic when you see overly curly lashes, and don’t overthink it. Just lash it, sister (or brother).
