Are you using Rapid Fan Lashes, or are you making volume fans by hand? Those of us who took the volume training, practiced, and struggled to create those pretty fans, may consider this kind of cheating.
I am volume trained and practiced a whole year before I did a full set of volume on any clients. I would add a few fans on every classic set I did until I felt confident. I really struggled with making perfect fans. It drove me crazy to see videos of others so magically just creating them, seemingly with ease.
Then I tried Glad Lash Rapid Fan Lashes and was pleasantly surprised, as in hello game changer. They have nice thin bases and are easy to pull from the tape. I will use these for those classic sets that need just a little more fluff. They are easy and quick to add. Rapid Fan Lashes do not require any formal training. They release easily from the strip and are applied like classic lashes. These lashes are very good quality and again, easy to use.
Of course, there are a few things a lash tech needs to know before using these lashes in order to get top quality results.
Tips to Get You Rapid Lashing
Make sure you know how many lashes you are able to place on your clients natural lash. Length and diameter are still very important. Just because your client wants them longer and fluffier, does not guarantee their natural lash is healthy enough to hold them.
We want to apply the same knowledge we learned in our training – baby lashes won’t be able to hold anything more than a short 2-3D fan. Anything longer or heavier can not only droop, but can cause damage or breakage to baby lashes.
For those eyelash artists who wish to create a fuller set of lashes, these are perfect. Most clients these days love the look of volume lashes. They are asking for a more strip lash look. These lashes give us more flexibility to customize our clients’ looks without the formal volume training.
