It’s no secret that applying lash extensions requires so much more than just a steady hand. Lashing is truly an art that requires lots of practice, dedication, and skill. The jaw-dropping lash sets flooding your Instagram feed aren’t created by simply applying the same lash length over and over again from corner to corner. You also can’t just use different lengths randomly.
Enter lash mapping.
A lash map is achieved through a methodical technique that can help you add texture and density to your client’s lashes. It is a tool you can use repeatedly to help remember the length and location of your client’s
desired lash look.
When you have a lash map in place for your sets, it means you have a customized plan. Proper lash mapping allows you to determine what length of extension you should use and where. Lash maps are a staple of beautiful lash
extensions for both experienced and beginner lash artists. Beginner artists can use them as a guide that allows them to attain symmetry between both eyes. Advanced lash artists can use lash maps to create customized looks using layers to achieve stunning results.
How To Get Start With Lash Maps
If you are just getting started with lash mapping, it is important to remember that there are many different styles and techniques you can use. As a general rule of thumb, you should use your lash pad to create designated zones
that will help you plan different lengths to achieve your overall desired look. No two lash maps are the same as they will vary from client to client.
Factors such as width between eyes, bone structure, and eye shape are all important when it comes to creating a customized lash map. Additionally, you should understand your client’s lifestyle and expectations before creating (and
applying) their lashes. From Classic lashes to mega volume, there are many different looks you can create.
Once you’ve achieved your client’s desired look, save their lash map and make fill-in appointments a breeze! Remember, lashes are an art, and they require proper planning and perfected techniques. Take the time to create a
customized lash map for each client so you’ve always got a game plan.
