tutorial, leading lash educator @joylashstylist explains the benefits of working from the forehead when applying eyelash extensions.
If you are used to working from the side this technique may take some adjustment to get used to and you will likely be slower in the first week or so, however if you push through this initial learning period you will never look back.
The 2 key benefits of working from the forehead vs side application are:
1. Faster Application: Due to the decrease in distance needed to travel from the lash tile to natural lash this will save you a lot of time. Joy's personal record during a 5 minute time challenge working from the forehead is 54 correctly applied extensions. And she knows she can go faster!
Faster application means more clients through the door which of course means more revenue for your business.
2. Improved Lash Retention: Ever wondered why your clients can consistently have poor retention one just one eye? Well, if you work from the side and are taking too long to get to the natural lash with your extension after you've dipped into the adhesive this is most likely why.
I.E. Say you work from the right hand side and you pick up an extension from your tile and then dip into your adhesive, then you start to isolate and find a naked lash on your clients left side, by the time you've done this and carried that extension over to apply, it is highly likely that the adhesive has already begun to polymerise before you attach it.
Another indicator of this is when you brush through at the end and extensions start popping off. This can often mean that you took too long to apply the extension after dipping into the adhesive, or there was something slippery on the natural lash before the appointment.
These days adhesives are so advanced that under their ideal working environments they can begin to set in just 1 second, most are no more than 4 seconds.
This is why working from the forehead is so beneficial because it cuts down the distance and therefore the time needed to apply each extension.
