Many women struggle with straight, sparse, and sad lashes. They spend half their life curling and coaxing their lashes to grow longer and curlier. They try serums and vitamins and anything else they can find to encourage those lashes to thicken up and get strong. It’s something you only really understand if you’ve experienced it. Having sad little lashes makes day-to-day makeup life a struggle, and it seems like even lash extensions might be impossible. But they aren’t! Lash extensions can be an amazing transformation for women who struggle with thin, straight lashes.
They can be a little more challenging for a lash technician. Straight or thin lashes are naturally more difficult to isolate and fix adhesive and lashes to, especially if the lash technician is inexperienced.

If a client has damaged lashes from a previous self-attempted or lash artist, lashes can still be made beautiful (if this is the case, you may want to recommend that your client take some time for their lashes to repair themselves).
