A guide to long eyelash extensions: Size matters

long eyelash extensions

Does your client find themselves too lazy or squeezed for time to apply mascara to their lashes every morning? Or are your clients looking for those stunning, curly long eyelashes that celebrities have? In any case, long lash extensions could be the answer to achieving that desired attractive look. Choosing the right length is one of the most important things you can do as a lash artist. It would be best if you determined the appropriate length for long eyelash extension firsthand. The entire process will be compromised if done incorrectly. Most lash salons offer long eyelash extensions ranging from 9 mm to 20 mm, allowing clients with a wide range of natural lash types to be incorporated.

Remember to get long lash extensions if they already have long, thick lashes and shorter if they have weak natural lashes (the 3mm rule). Check to see if the client's natural lashes can withstand the weight of the long eyelash extensions. Sometimes pairing lengths are insufficient. To produce long-lasting effects, you will need to calculate the extensions' mass and radius.

The client's preference is necessary

Decide if your client prefers length and volume in extensions. We at LLBA like to use the illustration of a bouquet for the fans of lash extensions. When lash stems are long, they protrude from the base of the lash line, and there is much space between each lash, making the arrangement appear sparse yet wholesome. The perfect lashes can significantly change your client's overall appearance. We recommend that you choose a lash length based on your client's natural lash length as well as their preferred look. 

The client's preference is necessary

For example, lash extension lengths ranging from 11-14mm are for a delicate but alluring effect. This length will give your client magnificent volume while upholding their physical feature

The 3 mm rule

If you choose the incorrect length of eyelash extensions, it may damage your client's natural lashes. They will also make them feel unhappy and may make the eyes appear weird. It's also possible that the lashes are overly heavy, inhibiting lash follicles from producing healthy lashes. The rule of thumb for selecting eyelash extensions should be 3mm-5mm longer than your client's natural lashes. In addition, long eyelash extensions can permanently weaken hair follicles, resulting in shortened, thinner natural lashes.

Extended or lengthy lash extensions can ultimately damage follicles if used for an extended period. The 3mm rule is a guideline that emphasises the importance of protecting your client's natural lashes. Referring to this rule, your clients should have lash extensions 3mm longer than their natural lashes and not more than that.
