What is Lash Taping?

Lash taping is a clever way that lash experts use to hold and separate the lower lashes when putting on lash extensions. It does two important things: makes the person comfier and helps the technician work with care. With the help of medical tape or soft pads, lash securing makes the extensions fit perfectly and look fantastic. It's like giving each lash its special spotlight!

A Closer Look to The Technique!

Before starting the lash isolation process, there are a few important steps to follow. These steps help make sure that the client feels comfortable and that everything is set up properly.
  • Thorough Consultation: This means having a good talk with the person who's getting the lash extensions. Ask them what they like and if they have any problems. It's also important to know if they have any allergies or things that might bother their eyes.
  • Getting Ready: Make sure that the place where you're working is clean and tidy. Also, create a calm and peaceful atmosphere. This can help the client relax and enjoy the experience.
Then, when it's time to start putting on the lash extensions, there are a few steps you need to follow carefully:
  • Starting Clean: First, gently clean the lashes. This helps remove any dirt or oils, so the extensions can stick better. It's like making a fresh, clean space for the new lashes.
  • Choosing the Right Stuff: Pick the right size of silicone pad or paper tape. Everyone's eyes are different, so you need to choose what fits best for the person. It's like finding the perfect puzzle piece that fits just right.

Tools for Lash Taping

Medical Tape

Medical tape is a kind and useful choice for holding the lower lashes. It's gentle on the skin and won't cause any allergies. The tape sticks easily and doesn't make the person uncomfortable. It's like a soft pillow that keeps the lashes in place. This helps to keep the upper lashes separate from the lower ones, so you can work really carefully. LavisLash's tape is designed with comfort in mind, making it an essential tool for your toolkit. Apply it with care, and you'll find that the discomfort associated with traditional methods becomes a thing of the past.
Now, let's talk about using medical tape. It's a soft kind of tape that's safe for the skin.
  • Cut and Place: Cut a little piece of tape and put it under the lower lashes. It's like creating a little cushion for the lashes.
  • Gentle and Soft: Press the tape down gently. You don't want it to be uncomfortable for the person. It's like giving a soft pat to make sure everything sticks nicely.

Silicone Pads

Silicone pads are like a fancy option instead of tape. They go under the lower lashes and make things feel really cozy. It's like having a cushion for the lashes. This makes the person feel relaxed during the process. These pads also help to keep the lashes separate properly. So, when you put on the extensions, everything looks really perfect and neat. LavisLash's pads are engineered to provide an unparalleled level of comfort. By incorporating these pads, you not only enhance your clients' experience but also ensure a more efficient and effective application process. If you're using silicone pads, there's a specific way to put them on.
  • Right Fit: Choose a pad that matches the person's eye size and shape. Not too big and not too small. It's like finding the perfect seat that's just right for them.
  • Comfortable Placement: Carefully put the pad under the lower lashes. Make sure it's cozy and feels good. It's like tucking someone in for a nap – you want them to feel nice and snug.

Notes to Remember:

  • Longer Lash Life: Doing lash taping the right way makes lash extensions stay on for a longer time. This means your beautiful work will stick around for a while.
  • Taking Care: Tell clients not to touch or rub their eyes too much. Also, let them know to take care of their lashes by following the aftercare instructions you give them. This way, their lash extensions will look awesome for a long time.
