Choosing the best Lash Tweezers can make a massive difference to your lashing. There are so many different types of eyelash extension tweezers so it can be challenging to know which ones to choose? Eye Love Lashes have a small range to suit all lash artists. I'm often asked which type of lash tweezer is best for certain types of application, so here is my rundown:
Straight Tweezers - Within our training, we introduce straight tweezers to our students as they are easy to use to pick up the lashes. They have been designed with a light 'action' specifically to prevent repetitive strain injury from use in the eyelash extension technician's forefinger, and thumb as this can become a problem later down the line for some people after years of carrying out the same movement.
Curved Tweezers - For each of our students, we introduce them to curved tweezers to use for isolation. These have been designed with a similar principle to the straight tweezers.
Nano Straight Tweezers - If you're a busy eyelash technician that is finding their current tweezers difficult due to a heavy spring action then these nano straight, fine point tweezers could be the solution to all of your problems. We use them for individual pick up and well as isolation as the light spring action, and wide serrated body means less strain with constant use.
Looking after your Eyelash Tweezers?
As a Lash Artist, your tweezers are the tools of your trade, so it’s essential that you take care of them. Here are our top tips for keeping them safe.
- Store them properly, always keep the little plastic keeper that protects the tip and put them in a soft pouch or wallet, keep them well cushioned.
- Keep them free from adhesive by cleaning them after every use.
- Use Barbicide to sanitise and disinfect – spray and leave rather than spray and wipe as the product will be more effective. Using Barbicide is kinder to your tweezers as it will not affect the finish and therefore the way you pick up lashes.
