“Which pair of tweezers should I use”?, this is a question that we get asked over and over again. Having the right set is crucial for easy and effective application of lash extensions, especially when doing volume lashes. There are several factors to take into consideration when deciding which pair of tweezers are right for you.
You want to select a pair that have enough tension to grasp individual lashes, while also able to release easily. Also, make sure that the tension is not too strong for you, that you are not having to exert too much energy to close them.
The tips of your tweezers should come to a perfect point with no gap when closed. This ensures that you are able to firmly grasp the lash extensions and allowing fans to be easily made when doing volume lashes.
Typically, you should be using two sets of tweezers for lash extensions, one pair for isolation and the other pair for applying the extensions. Straight tweezers are usually used for isolation and classic lashes. When performing volume lashes, we recommend using either a hooked or boot shaped pair for applying the lash extensions. These two styles allow you to grab fans as parallel to the strip as possible, giving you more control. As for the length, you want to select a length that is appropriate for your hand size and pick up style, not too long and not too short.
Ultimately, choosing the right pair of tweezers is a matter of personal preference and only you know your preferences! Always test them before you purchase them if at all possible. With LASHBOMB, you are able to test out all of ours, including grasping lash extensions using our LASHBOMB Palette testers, when you come into our store or when visiting our booth at any of our trade shows.
